    Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck.

    Terry A. Austin says: "Another brilliant Pratchett"
    "Tarnished brilliance"
    Overall

    I've been a Discworld afficionado for a long time, so I expect the best from Terry Pratchett.
    True fans will listen to this book no matter what, but this one left me a little disappointed.
    Of course, it still has plenty of clever English-contorting prose & I enjoyed some good laughs.
    The story line is interesting enough, with Commander Vimes unintentionally time travelling
    in order to rescue himself and the future. But as a complete work, it just lacked the "zing" that the first 20 in this series offered. If you are new to Discworld, pick one of the earlier books instead of this one.
    As for the audio production - poor. Stephen Briggs simply does not have the vocal range to
    carry Pratchett's complex characters. We can hear gulps, breathing, and annoying changes in
    tone & sound quality (director's fault).
