Read: Soul Music

Travelling means Pratchett. Having something amusing to read on a plane or train is just great. Time flies by (or, needs to fly by).

Unfortunately, despite the many clever references to music and movies and the appearance of Death, my favorite character, Soul Music is utterly unexceptional.

I did enjoy it but the only thing that stuck was a reference to one of my favorite bands. I did not expect that Pratchett would know them. In Europe, They are pretty obscure, not many people would have heard about them. Yet it seems he was actually a fan. ‘We’re Certainly Dwarfs’ made me laugh. It, of course, refers to ‘They might be Giants’. (Which I, finally, will see live in November when They will give a concert in Berlin.)
