Publisher's Summary

Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a hard-boiled egg!

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.

Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive; he has a job to do. He must track down a murderer, teach his young self to be a good copper, and change the outcome of a bloody rebellion. There's a problem, though: if he wins, he's got no wife, no child, no future.

This is a Discworld Tale of One City, with a full chorus of street urchins, rebels, secret policemen, and other children of the revolution.

What the Critics Say

"British author Pratchett's storytelling, a clever blend of Monty Pythonesque humor and Big Questions about morality and the workings of the universe, is in top form...in the phenomenally bestselling Discworld series." (Publishers Weekly)
"The author's talent for comedy does not falter as he continues to set the standard for comic fantasy." (Library Journal)
"Stephen Briggs's voices add dimension to the characters while avoiding exaggeration. He brings out the satire without compromising the subtlety of the humor....The series is meant to be read aloud." (AudioFile)

    "Much darker than previous Night Watch novels"
    Any additional comments?

    Having got used to Stephen Briggs in The Fifth Elephant, I really enjoyed his narration here but found the whole story a lot darker than I was used to with the Night Watch series. Pratchett has a lot to say here about torturers and murderers, which are of course no subjects for humour, and the whole premise of the book is somber. I felt there was an element of repetitiveness at times in some of the asides, but overall it is a fascinating backstory and grippingly read, even if not as comfortable and "easy" to listen to as some Pratchett novels.

    "Simply wonderful"

    Another episode in the life of the City Watch or more specifically Sam Vimes. This time the action is in the past and while there are still laughs the overall story is much darker than usual. Truth, Freedom and a hard boiled egg. This is not a story to begin listening to Terry Pratchett as you need to know and understand the characters but for those familiar to the City Watch will surely love it. A story that is very poignant and moved me to tears as well as the usual laughter.

    Story
    "Terrys' Best Work Ever!"
    Would you listen to Night Watch again? Why?

    Again and again, the narrating is spot on and engages the reader all the way through, The character descriptions pull me into the story and I feel like I could be there with them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Watch?

    Too many to mention, The smell of lilacs, the importance of the Hard boiled egg and reasonably priced love. Lu-Tze's interfering with Time and Q always trying to remove heads. All one gloriously perfect picture


    What about Stephen Briggs’s performance did you like?

    Stephen has been a favourite of mine for a while now, he has a vast range of voices for all the characters and reads at a good pace relevant to the book.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Truth, Freedom and Reasonably Priced Love


    Any additional comments?

    I personally fell in love with the story the first time I read this and would recommend this to anyone, Discworld fans or not.
