Read a Slightly Twisted Book about Death

Reaper man by Terry Pratchett — So my choices for Be Well are stretching it a little, but there's no category for just plain weird. This story is typical Pratchett style, maybe a little stranger than usual. Like any of his books featuring Death, there's some real gems, but the parasitic cities that are hatched as snowglobes, spend their childhood as shopping carts, and mature into shopping malls were a little over the top. Being Well comes into it in the hoardes of undead that are wandering about looking for peace after Death is fired. In general, my favorite Pratchett books are those that feature Tiffany Aching.
