"Thief of Time" is the 26th novel in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, and comes complete with a full supporting cast of heroes and villains, yetis, martial artists and Ronnie, the fifth horseman of the apocalypse (who left before they became famous).
The twenty-sixth Discworld novel from Britain s funniest and bestselling novelist. Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed. And on Discworld that is the job of the Monks of History, who store it and pump it from the places where it s wasted (like 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 and villains, yetis, martial artists and Ronnie, the fifth horseman of the Apocalypse (who left before they became famous)."
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
Other writers are mining the rich seam of comic fantasy that Pratchett first unearthed, but what keeps Pratchett on top is quite literally the way he tells them. "The Times" ["Discworld"] has the energy of "The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy" and the inventiveness of "Alice in Wonderland" [Terry Pratchett] has an intelligent wit and a truly original grim and comic grasp of the nature of things.
