Almost the entire book is based on irony. The entire book is about Death, and his job of dealing with people's souls after they've died. Everyone believes something different as to what happens to them after death. The ironic part is that whatever they believe is what will happen to them. If they believe in heaven, they go to heaven. If they believe in reincarnation, then they are reincarnated. If they believe that they will come back as a ghost and haunt their evil step-sister until her ears fall off... well you get the idea. It's interesting to think of what would happen if you believed that whatever people believed was true happened to them.
"They turned a corner and hit a wall of sound." There's no such thing as a wall of sound! Silly Pratchett...

"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
"The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it." -Terry Pratchett
