The Bookish Owl – Soul Music by Terry Pratchett

Soul Music by Terry Pratchett

Let’s rock and roll with Soul Music by Terry Pratchett!

This isn’t my favorite Discworld novel, but the reread was all worth it just for the scenes with Susan and Ridcully. I find the whole rock music plot a little tame, but there’s still some first class jokes along the way, so I’ll still recommend reading this book.

Either way, please enjoy Artemis’s “Are we done now…?”-face in the photo below. We did 4 book photos in a row that day and by the end he couldn’t even be bothered to glare at the camera or try to eat the book.


Soul Music
by Terry Pratchett

Other children get given xylophones. Susan just had to ask her grandfather to take his vest off.
Yes. There’s a Death in the family.

It’s hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe – especially when you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy.

And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered Discworld.

It’s lawless. It changes people.

It’s called Music With Rocks In.

It’s got a beat and you can dance to it, but…

It’s alive.

And it won’t fade away.

  1. I really enjoyed Soul Music! It’s not my favorite either, but I loved getting to see more of Susan, and the rock jokes highly amused me at the time. 🙂
