5.0 von 5 Sternen Just great!
"...Glod knew a guitar when he saw one. They were supposed to be shaped like a woman, but this was only the case if you thought women had no legs, a long neck and too many ears..." That's just one example of the humour and style of Terry Pratchett. And it hints at what the story is all about. It's about music. Music With Rocks In. But it's also about Susan...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not one of his better books
I'm surprised to see so many good reviews here; I thought it was pretty feeble. I mean, it's not *bad*--it's still Pterry--but I certainly wouldn't call it one of his best. It's one of his based-on-reality ones, like Moving Pictures, only more so; it's just Buddy Holly on the Discworld.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Soul Music (Discworld, Band 16) (Taschenbuch)
"...Glod knew a guitar when he saw one. They were supposed to be shaped like a woman, but this was only the case if you thought women had no legs, a long neck and too many ears..." That's just one example of the humour and style of Terry Pratchett. And it hints at what the story is all about. It's about music. Music With Rocks In. But it's also about Susan who gets to know her grandfather: Death. And it's about wizards, trolls and dwarfs living on Discworld. Soul Music is the first Discworld novel which I've read and it won't be the last. While reading the book I was reminded of Douglas Adams' great stories about the chaotic private investigator Dirk Gently or the legendary "Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy". I was absolutely amazed by Soul Music as it kept me laughing all the time. Noone who likes Douglas Adams will disappointed by Terry Pratchett's book. I will definitely read more of his Discworld novels. My recommendation: Read and enjoy! (Dies ist eine Amazon.de an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Too old for rock and stone, too young to die?, 21. April 2005
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Soul Music (Discworld, Band 16) (Taschenbuch)
The answers to those questions and more may be (and should be) found in Terry Pratchett's hilariously funny and deeply moving Soul music.
Soul Music consists of two parallel plot lines which, because this is Discworld and not the earth, converge as they reach the story's far horizons. First we meet Imp y Celyn, soon to be known to the world as Bud of the Holly or Buddy, as he travels the long and winding road from his home of Llamedos to Ankh-Morpork. Back hone, Imp's music always made his people smile and he knew if he had a chance he could make some people dance and maybe they'd be happy for a while. Unable to raise enough cash to join the musicians' guild, Buddy, after picking up a very odd guitar at a strange music store joins up with Glod the dwarf and Lias the troll and form a musical group. In short order the group has a gig at the Mended Drum.
In the meantime, DEATH is in the midst of his nineteenth nervous breakdown. As DEATH walks through his land of broken dreams, he seems unconcerned about what becomes of those who should now be departed. There will be disastrous consequences for the universe (see Reaper Man) if DEATH does not perform his obligations. The Death of Rats and his raven translator Quoth go desperately seeking Susan, DEATH's granddaughter. She is persuaded by Death of Rats to fill in until DEATH can be found and persuaded to return to work. Susan soon finds herself atop DEATH's horse Binky eight miles high and when she touches down she finds herself in the Mended Drum preparing for her first assignment. And then all heck breaks loose.
Buddy starts to play the guitar just like he's ringing a bell and the world seems to stop. It may be that only the good, like Buddy, die young but in this instance Susan says something DEATH would never say: "it isn't fair". Though no fault of her own, Buddy does not go up to that spirit in the sky, Buddy and his music live on. The obvious question becomes why is he still alive and to what purpose?
"Music with rocks in" it becomes the next big thing. Even the wizards at Unseen University fall prey to these musical magic moments, so different and so new. Cut Me Own Throat Dibbler soon makes an appearance and rapidly transforms himself from purveyor of sausages to greedy rapacious rock and roll impresario. Soon, every kid in Ankh-Morpork wants to be a music with rocks in star. They get electric guitars but don't learn how to play. They think with their hair swung right and their pants too tight it will be all right. Little do they know that in the crafty hands of CMOT Dibbler even musicians with talent will soon be in dire straights.
Meanwhile, Susan, Death of Rats and even Albert, DEATH's loyal man Friday, search Discworld for DEATH. DEATH has been seen sitting on the dock of the river in Ankh-Morpork, drinking whiskey and rye with the good ole boys at the Mended Drum, and standing guard at midnight at an oasis manned by the Klatchian Foreign Legion. His internal dialogue is priceless, funny, and thoughtful.
Events proceed rapidly as Dibbler prepares the band for a huge free concert in Ankh-Morpork. This will be Discworld's Woodstock. Will Susan's sense of justice prevail? Will Buddy survive even though the sands in his hour glass are long gone? Will the Librarian get money for nothing and his chimps for free? Will the wizards ride though mansions of glory in suicide machines? The answers to these questions aren't blowing in the wind but they are in the book.
As far as Terry Pratchett's Discworld books are concerned, Soul Music is near the top of the charts . . . with a bullet.
Elvish has left the building.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bloody brilliant!, 23. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Soul Music (Discworld, Band 16) (Taschenbuch)
Soul Music was the first Discworld novel I read, and now, after having read almost the entire series, it remains one of my favorites! Improves on further readings - I can guarantee you won't get all the jokes the first time through! The characters are fabulous - Death, Susan, the Death of Rats (SQUEAK!), the wizards (Born to Rune!)...it's a hilarious book that always keeps me laughing aloud. I think it's a good book to start off with - it's a nice introduction to some of the most popular Discworld characters and doesn't rely too much on earlier books. Just be sure to come back and read it again after you've read more of the series!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Making the Disc rock!, 14. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Soul Music (Discworld, Band 16) (Taschenbuch)
Other girl's grandfathers have false teeth and hair growing out of their noses. Susan's granddaddy has a black robe, a scythe and a VERY DISTINCTIVE VOICE. And if that was not bad enough, he is expecting her to take over his business, a business Susan is not in the least interested in. Even more trouble is brewing when Imp y Celyn dies... or rather, is supposed to die. His soul is gone, but his body just keeps on going. Something else is keeping him alive. Something new, something wild. Music. With rocks in it. And it is going to roll over the Discworld with a bang...
"Moving Pictures" was Terry Pratchett's look on Hollywood. Now he has written "Soul Music", a stab at the music business and all that comes along in its wake, including teenage rebellion (although the "teenagers" are, admittedly, older than most). There are a lot of puns about band names, and not all of them are easy to get. But even if you do not get them all, "Soul Music" still is a highly entertaining book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen More one-liners than a room full of... One-liners., 7. Januar 1999

William J. Jack (Boston, MA United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Soul Music (Discworld, Band 16) (Taschenbuch)
I can still vividly picture a guy being thrown ON to the river... Terry perfectly illustrates what the world would look like if it were much more fun. Death-of-Rats with his little rat-scythe. A wizard with a leather jacket bearing the words "Born to Rune" on the back. Rock and Roll sneaking in a few hundred years before its time. As soon as I can find a bus going there, I'm buying a ticket.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Born to Rune!, 9. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Soul Music (Discworld, Band 16) (Taschenbuch)
It is hard to be a cute little girl when your grandfather appears to be a polished skeleton. Well, that counts for most grandfathers but this special grandfather is a polished skeleton, seven feet tall. He wears a robe of absolute black, not like the black of new jeans, which washes out after about four meetings with the washing maschine. This special grandfather also carries a long scythe with him, an infinitely sharp scythe to be precise. Its purpose is to divide body and soul.
Its even harder to take over the grandfather's bussiness, especially when people confound you with the tooth fairy and when you find a body without a soul - or better: a body with rythm'n soul!
The body belongs to Bud of the Holly, but you can call him Imp. He is from 'Sod em all' - oops, sorry 'Llamedos'. He is a musician - and a very good one. He wants to become famous and rich. He has got a guitar. He has got the music - the MUSIC WITH ROCKS IN!
'Soul Music' is one of the best books by Terry Pratchett. You have to read it over and over again to find every joke, reference and parodie (all the references to music groups are hard to find!). Terry Pratchett at his best!!! (Dies ist eine Amazon.de an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen It rocks!, 23. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Soul Music (Discworld, Band 16) (Taschenbuch)
Susan Sto Helit is at a school where logical thinking is the only option. Trouble is, it's hard for her to be logical about her childhood memories of her grandfather, who happens to be Death.
It gets even harder when the Death of Rats turns up to tell her that her grandfather has disappeared, and she has to take on his job.
To further complicate matters, a musician whose name translates as "Bud of the Holly" has introduced the Discworld to the new and strangely addictive "music with rocks in".
Pratchett is at his excellent best when he translates earthly phenomena to the discworld, and the laughs don't stop coming, especially when the wizards catch the craze and try to act like teenagers - about sixty years too late!
All the characters regular readers have come to know and love are here: the wizards, the Watch, Dibbler (cashing in as usual); and Susan is a great new character, hopefully we'll see more of her in later books.
The start of the book promises "sex, drugs and music with rocks in... well, one out of three's not bad". It certainly isn't, specially since it's presented in pure Pratchett style.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Better Than others would have you think, 6. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Soul Music (Discworld, Band 16) (Taschenbuch)
This is really a good book and got me hooked on the series. It's really not that bad, and if you think it's confusing, think, do you ALWAYS understand a joke the fist time you hear it? If you're not keen on Sci-fi/Fantasy, well, you probally won't like it, but this is on par with Xanth, Pern, and Valdemar. Alot of the book has to do with rock and roll, so you may want to brush up on your history. I would definately recommend this book to a teenager or someone who lived throughout the time of rock and Roll's beginning. If you don't care for anything like this, then you won't like this book. It's that simple.
Personally, I love it, even if it's just due to my dislike of most non-fiction. I find it boring, but this book is definitly NOT Earth, it's more like a new, improved version of Xanth, Valdemar, and the world's of David Eddings.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Your a bit elvish..., 23. April 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Soul Music (Discworld, Band 16) (Taschenbuch)
In the begining there was a word "One" followed by more "Two, three, four". Before that though were the words "Testing, 1 2".
Soul Music takes us on another magical adventure where the realities of our world become twisted adventures on the disc.
The disc moves through the history of music with rocks in it from elvis like beginings, through rolling stones, sex pistols and ending in a summer of free music (which CMOT decides to take advantage of).
All this while death is trying to get drunk and the libarian is hammering out on the organ, makes for one of the craziest disc novels yet.
And just remember anyone can play the drums... you just hit them... and if you miss, then sit closer!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best of the series to date., 15. Mai 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Soul Music (Discworld, Band 16) (Taschenbuch)
To say that this is the story of Imp the Bard, Death's granddaughter, and rock music is an understatement worthy only of Terry Pratchett's footnotes. Soul Music tells of how Death retires (like Sinatra, one of his many retirements in the Discworld series) and his granddaughter takes up the scythe. Imp the Bard, meanwhile, refuses to die (and the new Death refuses to kill him) due to the nefarious influences of the new music he has invented, Music With Rocks In. Pratchett uses the now familiar "flat earth" conceit of the Discworld to satirize all elements of music, from our obsession with Buddy Holly, to the very British in-joke of Cliff. The best of the series to date
