Thief of Time

2001-06-21 15:26:07+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

I finished Terry Pratchett's latest, Thief of Time[Wiki], recently, and I think he's finally jumped the shark. I enjoyed The Truth[Wiki], but in the escalation of his cosmology Pratchett starts to tell tales of gods (well, beyond gods, in his stories) which, because we don't have a strong enough reference for the limitations in which they exist, makes payoffs less satisfying. Still a fun read, but it read more like a Tom Holt[Wiki] novel, funny prose without the strong narrative drive or the usual level of social satire.
