Publisher's Summary

Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed. And on the Discworld that is the job of the Monks of History, who store it and pump it from the places where it's wasted (like the underwater; how much time does a codfish need?) to places like cities, where there's never enough time. But the construction of the world's first truly accurate clock starts a race against, well, time for Lu Tze and his apprentice, Lobsang Ludd. Because it will stop time. And that will only be the start of everyone's problems. Thief of Time comes complete with a full supporting cast of heroes, villains, yetis, martial artists, and Ronnie, the fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse (who left before they became famous).

Brilliant as usual

Terry Pratchett writes another intriguing tale and Steven Briggs gives his usual outstanding narration. There is little to fault anout this book except to say yhat when you are as good as Mr Pratchett you are held to a VERY high standard and he has written better stories.

Awesome all round.

I am reading the Pratchett in series order. This is the first Death book read by Stephen Briggs and even though his version of Death is different, I think I prefer Stephen's narration. Both Nigel and Stephen are very good narrators, Stephen's seem to be a more consistent quality in term of sound.<br/><br/>This is by far my favourite in the Death series. You won't be disappointed with the story or the narration.<br/>
