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.

At first, when I listened through the entire death series I was a tiny bit underwhelmed by it's ending. That being said having listened to it a second time I was wrong. It's still just as amazing as all Pratchett books are. I'm so happy I listened a second time.
Thief of time is possibly the most philosophical of the Discworld novels. I use the word "philosophical" as a positive trait here. It entertains in that wonderful Pratchett way, but also makes you go mmmmmm. Highly recommended.
If you're into Time and Space, this is for you. I love all of his books (so far I'm up to 20 so far), but this one grabbed my attention the fastest and never let go.
This is one of my favorite in the series. I have listened to it three times over the years. The narrator is wonderful and Pratchett is as good as ever.
