Sort like Santa Claus in reverse.
Nobody wanted him to visit them.
Unending work with no respect.
Without death, population explosion.
Dark, but trippy ride! Horse could be transformed into car sign of the times.

While I enjoyed this book, I found the rest of this series much less engaging. On A Pale Horse is definitely worth the read.

A light read. Worth it.

I'm not a fan of Piers Anthony in general (on a personal level I find the man utterly distasteful just read his blog for example and you'll find he's a racist, sexist, and has a disturbing fascination of young girls).
But, his Incarnations of Immortality is his best series. And it's a pretty damn good read to boot. Definitely worth reading.

Not normally my type of reading but I really liked this whole series. It was creative and dark and satiric.

Piers has some odd ideas about sin. Otherwise, an entertaining adventure with some interesting characters.

This turned out to be a highly awesome book!!! I highly recommend!!! The concept that Death is a living person is interesting. Zane is a great character!!

Listened to this story on audio book and well worth a listen, if simply for the great narration skills of George Guidall!! I've not read much along the fantasy genre, but did enjoy this story and look forward to listening to the remaining installations in Piers Anthony's Incarnations series. There was love, hate, humor and a lot of fun--7 out of 10 for me.
