Death’s Clumsy Apprentice

One of my favorite books by Terry Pratchett is Mort, part of his Discworld series. It’s the story of an awkward young man who becomes Death’s apprentice and finds a way to mess up the course of history by intervening, which he is not supposed to do. Of course, now he has to try to fix it by intervening even more, which only makes matters worse. The absurdity of it all is hilarious.
