    A storm. Rain-lashed city streets. A flash of lightning. A scruffy lad sees a girl leap desperately from a horse-drawn carriage in a vain attempt to escape her captors. Can the lad stand by and let her be caught again? Of course not, because he's...Dodger. Seventeen-year-old Dodger may be a street urchin, but he gleans a living from London's sewers, and he knows a jewel when he sees one. He's not about to let anything happen to the unknown girl - not even if her fate impacts the most powerful people in England.

    Snoodely says: "Finally Revealed: Where Dickens Got His Ideas!"
    "Novel set in historic London, Loved it!"

    Story

    I have only read one other Terry Pratchett book when I unknowingly jumped into the middle of the discworld series with Going Postal. While that book was great I have enjoyed Dodger more, as there aren't as many "odd" characters for me to get head around since Dodger is not set in a fantasy world but a historic one. I loved learning about this aspect of Victorian era England. As a reader without a huge investment (yet) in reading Pratchett novels, this was just a generally all around great read, funny and perceptive and different from anything else I have read. Audible includes this in "Teen Fiction" which surprised me. While the Dodger character could certainly be admired by teens I didn't read anything that didn't feel like a "grown up" novel.
