Do you think Susan Sto Helit from the Discworld novels is a mary sue?

I’m going to try to avoid spoilers as much as possible for this.

Nope. Susan makes a lot of mistakes that she sees reasonable consequences for in the books. Usually from her grandfather because someone has to keep everyone in line, and Death is usually the best individual for that job in any universe. She isn’t well liked for good reasons, but she isn’t universally disliked. Also, the people who dislike her aren’t all bad people. They’re not super great people, but it’s made clear that she’s not a super great person either. She is, after all, one very disconcerting child, and she has a very immature outlook at times that is pointed out to her. 

There are quite a few characters who come hilariously close to Sue/Studom, but I don’t think she’s one of them. And Terry Pratchett handles those characters in such a way that it not only works, but that’s half the point of the characters.
