Tony Robinson is the only reader for me for Terry Pratchetts inspired lunacy. I know they are abridged which is usually a "non starter" for me but I remembered Tony from "Blackadder" so bought my first one a couple of years ago. I've read almost all the Discworld books now (Going Postal is my favorite) but if you want the voices give Tony a whirl.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Brian Ashe TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 8 2010
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Terry Pratchett has an oddball sense of humour. We know this. But the depth of philosophy in this volume is much more than his usual. Don't get me wrong: I enjoy the light-hearted highjinks of the early Pratchett novels. I really get the mythological origins of Discworld. But the manipulation of reality and the sense of time in this book are extraordinary. The characters are the usual for Pratchett: flaky, caricatures, with quirks that make them more human than you'd expect. The plot includes, as usual, the saving of the (Disc)world, but the mind stretch is much more than usual. Excellent work.

"Thief of Time" is the twenty-sixth book in Terry Pratchett's hugely popular Discworld series and was first published in 2001. He has gone on to win the Carnegie Medal for "The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents" and was awarded the OBE in 1998.

Officially, The Auditors are in charge of the universe : they see that atoms spin, that gravity works and that things move in curves. However, they hate life - too many irregularities - and have tried several times to deal with those pesky humans. In "Thief of Time", they're at it again - only, this time, they're being a little more devious about it. Normally Death - wears black, bony knees, big grin, carries a scythe - would do what he could to thwart them. However, due to an impending Apocalypse, he has to gather his fellow Horsemen - Famine, War and Pestilence - for the traditional ride. (There's also the matter of the mysterious fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse, who left before they became famous). As a result, Death persuades his grand-daughter Susan into helping out with the fight against the Auditors. Susan is now a teacher in Ankh-Morpork, so she's used to fighting for her life on a daily basis. Thankfully, for this battle she has Death of Rats and Quoth the Raven to help her out.

The Order of Wen and is based at the Monastery of Oi Dong in the High Ramtops. It is known by several aliases - including the History Monks. It's up to them to see that history follows the right track (it doesn't just happen, after all), and when history breaks it's the Order's job to fix it. Their job is made easier by their ability to move and store time, largely thanks to their "procrastinators". Lu-Tze is one of the Order's most notable members.

I think this is a fascinating CD, ingenious plot, elegantly told where all the loose ends tie up gracefully in the end. Highly recommended.

Terry Pratchett delivers again! Another saterical tale that will leave you both laughing your ass off, and pondering the mysteries of time. An excellent read. However, I highly suggest reading some of his earlier works to gain a better understanding of the world and his charecters. God Bless!

I needed something to waste time on during a 12-hour drive, so I picked this audio-recording up at the library. I had read several Discworld novels (read: as many as I could get my hands on), so I was ecstatic to find this in the public library! As audio-recordings go, it is unparallelled -- the voice acting is professional, natural, and well suited to each character. The voice of Death does indeed sound "in tones of funeral bells", but without an obvious exaggeration that would detract from the listening experience. Cameos by Harlan Ellison (someone has to read the footnotes!) add charm to an already exceptional performance. I would recommend it to anyone with at least a passing like for Pratchett, and ears to hear.

I have read every Terry Pratchett Discworld book there is to date.
Thief of Time as a book is great but Thief of Time as a audio book is fantastic. Christopher Cazenove, Gabrielle De Cuir, Karesa McElheny, John Rubinstein, Stefan Rudnicki, and Harlan Ellison are the narrators but what they should be called are the actors. They capture the character's personalities and voices so well they seem real. There is some atmospheric music in the background at key times that is a nice touch. This audio book is definitely worth your money. It takes Terry Pratchett's Discworld books to a whole new level.
Fantastic Audio has a new Terry Pratchett audio book coming out called Night Watch. If Thief of Time is any judge of the quality of their audio books, Night Watch will be well worth your money too.
