Publisher's Summary

The town of Ankh-Morpork is in big trouble, and the City Watch is desperate for a few good men to protect it. But all they've got are the dwarves Corporal Carrot and Lance-constable Cuddy; the troll Lance-constable Detritus; Lance-constable Angua, who is believed to be a woman; and, worst of all, Corporal Nobbs, who has been disqualified from the human race for shoving!

These underdogs need all the help they can get, for they've been given only 24 hours to clean up the war-torn town.

    "brilliant story"

    The story is brilliant. Nigel Planer does a good job, however the production of the audiobook is rubbish. The cover art is incorrect too

    Story
    "One of Pratchetts best."
    What made the experience of listening to Men at Arms the most enjoyable?

    Nigel Planer does a good job of bringing the characters to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Captain Vimes. He is nearly everyones favourite.


    What does Nigel Planer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The deep bass of Deaths voice among other things.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. simply due to it being 10 hours(!) long.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone interested in starting to read Terry Pratchetts Discworld series should probably start with the previous city watch book: Guards Guards!
    There is nothing about this book that cannot be enjoyed on its own but most prefer to follow the characters chronologically.

    "You gotta love pratchett"

    Terry pratchett takes things from real life, magic, and humour and puts them in his books
    This is one of my favourite books and I have to say I love the night watch more than the others

    "classic prattchett read badly"

    nigel planer is a great comic actor but has completely messed up the characters. Anguea, one of Sir Terrys most intelligent and compelling characters comes across terribly.

    I cannot decide which is my favorite. The book made me laugh aloud and fired me with an urgent desire to hear more!

    "one of my favourite Guards stories"

    some of the accents chosen were surprising but the trolls worked very well. I enjoyed the telling of the story, but narrator used different inflections which slightly changed attitude sentence to how I had read it. but overall, great.

    "Great as always"

    Having listened to 4 or 5 narrated by Stephen Briggs I struggled to get used to Nigel Planer's take on the voices but it's a great story as with all of Terry Pratchett 's city watch books.

    "Fantastic!"

    I love Terry Pratchett - especially his City Watch series so this is just pure joy for me.

    As the second in the watch books I love reading about the development of the characters and there's a nice introduction of some new ones too here.

    His humour is, as always, second to none and I could read/listen to the book all day long.
