Description

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).

Highly Recommended

I've listened to this so many times and though I adore the story itself, the narration is excellent and really brings it alive. I would highly recommend this!

Light and fun

A very pleasant book to listen to while getting some exercise. Although apparently laughing while running is not a good idea. I almost fell off the treadmill.

Problematic characterisations disappoint

Any additional comments?

This is one of my all time favourite Discworld books, and I've listened to Stephen Briggs and Tony Robinson read Pterry's books since for a long time. I was hesitant going into an audio version of 'Thief of Time', because so many of the gags are visual, but they mostly worked, which is great. What doesn't work is Briggs' corny and hackneyed "oriental" accents for the History Monks. When I first started listening, I was dismayed that I was listening to a Micky Rooney-esque yellow-face interpretation of these characters. To add insult to injury, Briggs doesn't seem able to maintain the atrociously bad accent, dropping in and out of various levels of awfulness. It was just plain sad and disappointing, and I don't know whether it was Briggs' decision, his director, or whose, but I spent most of the recording wishing it would stop. Bad. Just Bad.

no chapters

Good audiobook. Sadly there are two chapters. The first is hardly more than a minute. The second more than 10 hours. The first chapter stops in the middle of a sentence. Surely Audible could do this better easily.

Ungekürzt!!!

Sehr angenehmer Sprecher, klasse Buch und vor allem eine ungekürzte Fassung, dh denjenigen den dir Pratchett-Bücher bekannt sind, gehen die kleinen Wortspielerein,d ie in den Hörbüchern oft wegfallen nicht ab. Volle fünf Sterne für ein gelungenes Hörerlebnis!

Sehr guter Pratchett mit viel Metaphysik

Sehr guter Pratchett mit viel Metaphysik. Tolle Charaktere und interessante Wendungen. In meinen Augen besser als The Truth aber nicht ganz so gut wie der Amazing Maurice.
