But probably the most "heartfelt" death was the off-screen death of Susan's parents, which occurred before Soul Music began, although it is re-enacted (through memory) in the novel itself. I suppose it needed to happen, since without these deaths Susan would never have been "adopted" by Death and become the "magical" person she is.

Raisindot, I just thought we'd better "spoiler" things for people who want to read the thread and look for books they have read, for any similarities in the way they felt. I haven't read Reaper man or thief of time for example, but I know who dies in them now!
Anywho, that aside, I've just finished reading Men at arms, Im reading through the City watch lot at the moment, :-

I agree about the spoilers (bad Rasindot!), though, it's a shame that you've created a topic that is hard to feedback on others' thought if they are on books that you haven't read yet. quote]

I'm a very, VERY emotional person when it comes to this (I can spend an entire day crying because of a sad ending) but with Pratchett books I've never felt that way. Maybe it's how he talks about it, with the hilarious entry on stage of Death, that even a death makes you smile, or the lack of very important character's death. Or if in the event that it happens, he'll make it in a so gentle way that it'll make you smile anyway.
I don't know, its just my opinion, but with Pratchett I've never needed handkerchiefs handy. Well yes, but to wipe my tears of laughter
