Reviews of Thief of Time (2001)
Review by oakbox (2003-03-07)
The auditors are out to stamp out that annoying and inconvenient thing called 'Life' again and it's up to a mysterious history-monk-in-training, the 5th horseman, Death, Death's daughter, Lu-Tze (whom you may remember from his cameo in "Small Gods"), and a Yeti to stop them.
This book is a great introduction to the History Monks and the nature of Time on Discworld and offers more than the usual laughs per page. Notes to Pratchett enthusiasts:
- there is no lump-in-the-throat ending here
- The Susan thread finally gets tied up.
- Lu-Tze is fleshed out as a character, an important run up to his appearance in "The Night Watch"
