"Mort" is the fourth novel written in the Discworld series. It is about a gangly red-haired "farm" boy named Mort who is looking for an apprenticeship. As it turns out, the Death of Discworld (who, as He puts it, doesn't kill people, He only collects their souls) is looking for an apprentice. Mort accepts the job, as being dead isn't compulsory. Death then goes around and shows Mort the job, and also hints at Mort's marrying of His "daughter", and eventually lets Mort out on his own. Mort starts off okay with it, then comes by a very pretty princess who is about to be assassinated. Instead of killing her, Mort kills the assassin, ensuing in chaos as history and reality try to righten themselves. Also, behind all that Death starts becoming more "human", and starts looking for a new job. As this story was written in a humorous way, it gets very interesting.

"I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
