Beautifully put- was it the Hogfather?
I'm asking because It's been a while since I read a Discworld book!
.I actually wrote this nearly five years ago and the book was The Thief of Time. I've since read many more and we probably own about a dozen, including the Hogfather.
I'm reading Hogfather right now. I love Death. I want to marry him. (Ok, maybe not MARRY him, but he is my favorite.)
.I like him a lot too; he tends to be the best part of the books he shows up in--or at least as good as the best parts. He was prominent in ToT too.
