    Story

    A funny, off-centre and excellent yarn from Robert Rankin. I drive a lot and listen to audiobooks in the car. This was one of the best so far. Mr Rankin reads his own work, and knows just how to bring the characters alive in his world.

    Story
    (307)

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse. And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder. He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, and occasionally snookered and out of his mind, but never out of guile. They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.

    Story

    I loved this story. The Vimes/Watch books are probably my favourites in the Discworld series and this novel continues the evolution of the Vimes' world. The way in which the tales of the various Watch characters have progressed is brilliant, with some really nice twists and turns in their sroty arcs that you can't see coming. The books are designed for readers to enjoy, as well as making you think about various broader concepts and ideas along the way. SImply brilliant.

    The villainous He has travelled back in time to mankind's distant past on the legendary planet Earth (or 'Dirt') of 1984, where he is altering events so that people who opposed him in the Rat's present cease to exist, Angelina amongst them. Using the Helix, a time-travel device invented by the Special Corps' Professor Coypu, diGriz travels to 1984 America, and then to Napoleonic France where tanks and aircraft are helping bring about Napoleon's victory.

    Story

    I read the "Rat" books quite a few years ago and loved them then. Still do. Phil Gigante's performance brings the books to life.
