Publisher's Summary

Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed. And on the Discworld that is the job of the Monks of History, who store it and pump it from the places where it's wasted (like the underwater; how much time does a codfish need?) to places like cities, where there's never enough time. 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.

A welcome re-recording.

The original recording of this story used an ensemble cast that had as much feel for the material as a centipede does for a bicycle. I'm annoyed that I had to purchase this audiobook twice, but I'm glad that I finally got a good reading of an excellent story. If, like me, you purchased the original recording, buy this. You'll be glad you did.

Good background material

This comes right before the incredible and brilliant Night Watch - and it makes an interesting background history for that.
Susan, granddaughter of Death, has a big role in this story and is lots of fun for fans of her character - though the monks of time actually play the largest part.
The plots bears well under a second reading, in fact, it actually improves with it-
