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.
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.
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.
