Tear Jerker: Mort

  • When Death sends off the *sniff* souls of those kittens, I very nearly broke down into tears. I have a deep seated soft spot for cats in my heart...
    • I don't have a particularly soft spot for cats (well, I do, but not more than for other creatures) and yet that scene affected me dearly. Death's stopping a conversation to go fetch the dead kittens while commenting on how angered Death was by it was punch one. Death petting the souls of the dead kittens was punch two.
  • This is the first book where we really see just how very alone Death is, he is the only one of his kind and will outlive all life on the disk, and perhaps, even beyond that.
