HASH(0x9e75bf3c) out of 5 stars THERE ARE BETTER THINGS IN THE WORLD (...) Nov. 18 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book/map, which is the fourth map from the Pratchett multiverse, is for the avid reader who has all the books by Terry Pratchett and is desperate enough for more material that he shells out twenty bucks to get more.
The writing is excellent, as always, but there are only 23 (quick count) pages of it. The rest of the product (except for the title pages etc.) consists of a large map following the same standard as the three other maps. The problem with it is that it doesn't enhance the reading of the novels in any way at all. The first two maps, Ankh-Morpork and, to a lesser degree, Discworld, added to the fun by letting the reader follow the protagonists' journeys while reading the novels. This map from the domain of one of Discworld's most amusing and easiest recognizable characters does no such thing. It is nice-looking but nothing more. It doesn't really tell me anything more about Discworld than that its author has no intention to starve.
What I really would wish is a collection of the text-bits from the maps together with Terry's excellent short stories in one book. That way we could avoid all the empty filling.
Albert: "Oh, yes, sir. But alcohol sort of compensates for not getting them."

HASH(0x9ea42900) out of 5 stars See Death before you Die Nov. 1 2005
By Matt Graubner - Published on
Format: Paperback
Death decided that he needed a place to live, so Death's Domain was born, just nobody is exactly sure precisely where it is. "Death, significantly, does not see many crypts or coffins. Most peole die at home, or at sea, or at least out in the fresh air." So therefore there isn't anything terribly gothic or spooky about the house--except that everything is in various shades of the colour black.

In the tradition of previous Discworld Mapps this volume contains a large map and a booklet. I honestly found the booklet and the border illustrations the best.

I really like Kidby's illustrations of Death and his associates so that is quite enjoyable. Not only are we treated to Death, Susan, and Albert but we see Death of Rats peeking over an edge and his raven in the midst of black roses. And don't forget Binky!

The booklet was also quite illuminating, especially the discussions between Albert and Death concerning the golf course and the maze. The character of Death as portrayed by Pratchett has long fascinated me (it is nice to see him in every book) and it is fun to see more of him than before.

However, we don't actually see the inside of the house (since it is larger on the inside than the outside). Also, somewhat disappointingly some of the details were too small to properly make out. I would have really enjoyed seeing the tree swing that Death made for Susan, but it is far too small to see anything clearly.

Finally I would encourage casual fans to not pick up this volume unless they're really fascinated by Death. Yes it is interesting (and vital to the diehard fan), but it doesn't add too much to the books and doesn't make much sense just on its own.

HASH(0x9dfd83f8) out of 5 stars The weakest of the Discworld Mapps published so far Aug. 8 2007
By Martin Christen - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have very mixed feelings about this Mapp. I bought it because it's Discworld, and a serious Discworld fan like me will want to have this in their collection regardless of what rating it gets!

Nevertheless, compared to the other Mapps (The Streets of Ankh-Morpork, The Discworld Mapp and A Tourist Guide to Lancre) it's not quite up to par.

True, the Mapp itself is gorgeous and there are some nifty pencil drawings inside the book (some of which can however also be found in The Art of Discworld). And there is some really funny dialogue between Albert and his master about playing golf...

But mostly, this Mapp is rather boring. Unlike the others, it just doesn't add much to the Discworld series.
The books describe the INSIDE of Death's house in much detail but the Mapp focuses on the outside of it only - which looks like an areal picture of any old manor and grounds. OK, with less green and more purple/black, but other than that...

We now know the exact location of Death's bee hives and where the stables are - but so what? Who really cares? We also learn where Death built Susan's swing but we can't actually see what it looks like, it's just a dot in the trees. The wheat field is just a patch of yellow in the distance. And then there are lots of frankly boring additions that AFAIK have never been mentioned in the books (The Pointy Tree Avenue? The Wood of Silence? The Gazebo? Give me a break...)

In short, there is just not much CONTENT. What is shown isn't bad, I just think that a plan and images of the INSIDE should really have been included as well.

Yet as it is, the steep price should make many Discworld fans wonder: do I really need this? My recommendation for casual fans is to spend the money on a Discworld novel instead...

HASH(0x9dfd85b4) out of 5 stars Neat little novelty Nov. 9 2006
By M. Bradley - Published on
Format: Paperback
This thing is like a book, it has a few pages discribing Death's domain. But what's really neat is that is has a huge fold out map of the entire world that Death lives in. It's so cool! It filled up a very good size portion of my wall and is really neat to walk in to see. It's got nice artwrok and everything. Even if you've never read the discworld series it's nice to have. Actually it kind'a made me want to read some of the discworld books.

I love discworld, and this is a great product, but don't be fooled by the details which state that this product has 99 pages. It only has about 32, and that's including the cover, title, and copyright pages, and the table of contents. I have no idea where they got 99 from. The map itself is well done, printed on decent paper, and looks quite nice. But it is unfortunately glued to the booklet really well, so it may well be impossible to detach it without damage in the case one wanted to laminate or frame the map itself. Got 4 stars instead of 5 because I can't frame the map like i wanted to.
