In “Thief of Time,” the 26th book in the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett, the story revolves around the concept of time and the efforts to control it. The narrative follows the character Susan Sto Helit, who is the granddaughter of Death, as she becomes involved in a plot to stop time. The Auditors, beings who seek order and dislike humanity’s chaotic nature, plan to halt time to achieve their goal of eliminating individuality. To counter this threat, Susan teams up with a group of eccentric characters, including Lu-Tze, a sweeper at the Monastery of Oi Dong, and Lobsang Ludd, an enigmatic young man with a mysterious past.
As the story unfolds, the characters embark on a quest to prevent the Auditors from achieving their destructive plan. They encounter various challenges and obstacles along the way, including facing off against supernatural forces and navigating through different dimensions. The narrative is infused with Pratchett’s trademark humor and wit, as well as thought-provoking commentary on the nature of time and humanity’s relationship with it.
The novel explores themes such as the passage of time, the significance of individuality, and the consequences of disrupting natural order. Through its engaging storytelling and imaginative world-building, “Thief of Time” offers a compelling exploration of philosophical concepts while delivering an entertaining and humorous narrative.
Overall, “Thief of Time” is a captivating addition to Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, blending elements of fantasy, humor, and profound insights into human nature and existence.

‘The universe, moment by moment, is recreated anew… The perfect time is now. Rejoice in that.”
Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed. You can let it move fast or slow, but what you can’t do is allow it to stop.
On Discworld, the Priests of History have the important task of ensuring that tomorrow always comes. But building the world’s first truly accurate watch begins a race against… time.
Monk Lu-Tze, his apprentice Lobsang Ludd and Death’s niece Susan must stop the watchmaker before he completes his task. Because a truly accurate watch stops time completely.
And then, there really will be no tomorrow…
You can listen to the Discworld novels in any order, but The Thief of Time is the fifth book in the Death series.
What if time was a living thing? Many ideas are realized in these books and they will surprise you. Four horsemen we know, but what about the fifth? I really liked Lu Tze before and this movie focuses on his story. Auditor reminds me a lot of Watcher and their ideas have been used in many different ways before. This whole story is so fun to sink your teeth into. As usual, there’s a great mix of characters both new and old. Some parts of the story prove that it’s best to read them in order, and some plot twists will be easier to understand if you’ve read the previous books. And now I turn to the only story in this group that is only available in hard copy.
