Thief of Time (Discworld, #26) - Terry Pratchett

The Auditors are great.

 

'Understood, said one of the incarnate ones. 'We know the way. We will lead.'

It walked into the door

The Auditors clustered around the door for a while, and then one of them glared at Lady LeJean, who smiled.

'Doorknob,' she said.

The Auditor turned back to the door, stared at the brass knob, and then looked the door up and down. It dissolved into dust.

'Doorknob was simpler,' said Lady LeJean.

 

As a matter of fact, Death has never really got the hang of doorknobs either. Or latches.

The Last Time I Lied
The Last Time I Lied - Riley Sager

Fifteen years ago the three girls who were staying with Emma Davis in a tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale vanished into the night never to be seen or heard from again. The camp closed its doors after the tragedy, but Francesca Harris-White, the wealthy owner, finds Emma and tells her she will be reopening Camp Nightingale and that she would like for her to come back as a painting instructor. Emma sees this as an opportunity to find out what really happened to Vivian, Natalie, and Allison.

I loved The Final Girls, the writing was so good. So I was expecting big things from the author's next book and I was not disappointed! I loved the camp setting, the mystery and suspense.. what happened to these three teenagers? I couldn't wait to find out. I thought the author was going to lose me a few times towards the end but everything came together so well. Definitely an enjoyable page-turner for me. I look forward to reading more from Riley Sager.

The Yeti!

 

Come to think of it, Lu-Tze reminds me a lot of Granny Weatherwax. It's lines like these that do it:

 

'Well, I just... I thought... well, I just thought you'd be teaching me more, that's all.'

 

'I'm teaching you things all the time,' said Lu-Tze. 'You might not be learning them, of course.'

"There was something called the Rules, Susan knew. They weren't written down, in the same way that mountains weren't written down. They were far more fundamental to the operation of the universe than mere mechanical things like gravity. The Auditors might hate the untidiness caused by the emergence of life, but the Rules did not allow them to do anything about it. The ascent of mankind must have been a boon to them. At last there was a species that could be persuaded to shoot itself in the foot."

 

 

Snicker.

Thief of Time (Discworld, #26) - Terry Pratchett

'Do you really have semaphore addresses in Uberwald?'

'Oh, yeth, We are ready to grathp the future with both hands, thur.'

'—and four thumbs—'

'Yeth, thur. We can grathp like anything.'

 

[This Igor has an extra thumb on each hand. Now, do you think he has the extra thumb beside his pinkie on each hand or beside the first thumb? I would think that the former would make more sense, especially for grasping things...]
