Mort by Terry Pratchett is the story of a young boy who becomes an apprentice to Death. There comes a time when Death wants to take a bit of time off and leaves Mort in charge of his duties, but things don't go quite according to plan. In some ways the story reminds me of The Sorcerer's Apprentice from Disney's Fantasia. This book is very humorous both in plot and in imagery and I especially love the comedic footnotes. I'd recommend this book to anyone who has enjoyed other books in the Discworld series or anyone who enjoys British style humor.
