Review of The Thief of Time by Terry Pratchett

Title: The Thief of Time
Author: Terry Pratchett
Rating: 5/5
This was certainly an interesting one. The Auditors are once again trying to rid the universe of life.
As such, Susan is featured heavily in this one and, as with The Hogfather, I very much enjoyed her “at the end of the day, someone’s got to tip the wee out of the shoes” attitude to life. Not sure if I’d have wanted her as my teacher though.
Having loved Small Gods, I was overjoyed to find the history monks are involved, particularly Lu Tze. He was quite the character and had me snickering like a hyena for ages while reading. And I’ll certainly remember Rule One as I’m no doubt sure many of Discworld’s characters wished they had. Especially the Auditors. And Lobsang. Poor Lobsang, always forgetting Rule One. ^_^
The one blemish in this otherwise excellent read? I wasn’t a fan of Jeremy, he was a little too … odd for my liking and some of the beginning scenes with him are equally out of whack. But then again, Jeremy wasn’t a fan of Jeremy either.
