On a Pale Horse

On a Pale Horse - Piers Anthony Nope, couldn't feel the love for this popular first book in the Incarnations series. Terry Pratchett's conception of Death in the Discworld series is funny, thought-provoking, sometimes moving and raises the bar, so maybe most books on this theme will suffer by comparison. Anthony's OaPH struck me as being pretty sophomoric unexciting prose and confused in tone about what it wanted to be: YA? Philosophical? Funny? Theological? ZOMG, girls have boobies?
