Thief Of Time Summary


Thief Of Time: (Discworld Novel 26) by Terry Pratchett

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).

"'In a better world he would be acclaimed as a great writer rather than a merely successful one...This is the best Pratchett I've read...Ought to be a strong contender for The Booker Prize'" -- Charles Spencer * Sunday Telegraph *
"'Reads with all the polished fluency and sure-footed pacing that have become Pratchett's hallmarks over the years'" -- Peter Ingham * The Times On Saturday *
