Terry Pratchett is one of the most insightful and wittiest satirists of popular culture literature has seen. Night Watch is, as with his other Discworld books, an incredibly addictive and enjoyable story. Sam Vimes takes another step in his ongoing evolution as a character, and some of the egnimatic Patrician's past is revealed. this is a great story, and the narration is superb. Get this book!
Avoid This Narrator! With this month's subscription I purchased both Wyrd Sisters and Equal Ritesm which are both narrated by Celie Imrie. They are terrible! What happened to Nigel Planer for these books? I'm not sure if there are other versions narrated by Planer, or Stephen Briggs, but I'd look for them before buying this version. The narration puts the listener in the mind of a mother reading her child to sleep, which is exactly the effect obtained! By contrast, the Briggs/Planer narrations keep the listener actively interested in the story. In short, run away! Run away!
