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)

    "Perfection."

    Not only is this my favourite Discworld novel, it is probably one of my favourite books of all time.
    I think it helps a little bit to understand a little bit of the lore of Discworld before getting into this.
    It is a masterpiece, pure and simple.

    "I find your copyright lectures contemptible."

    I find your copyright lectures contemptible. I don't really appreciate being chided by what I can and can't do in loud angry voices when I start listening to the book I've legally bought.

    "A wonderful story brought to life"

    Night Watch is one of my favourite Pratchett books. Stephen Briggs is a talented voice actor who brings the characters to life. Only negatives would be that Mr Briggs speaks very fast and sometimes the rhythm of his sentences are a bit off.

    "Possibly the best of all the discworld books."

    I've seen old men cry when they hear this.

    Why? It sounds cheerful.

    They were remembering who they were not hearing it with, thought Vimes. You'll learn, I know you will.



    GNU - Terry Pratchett.

    Story
    "probably my favourite city watch novel"

    It has everything you need, Cmdr Vimes, time travel, a young sam vimes, and the usual wit and humour from this much loved author. Don't worry if you've not read the others but I would recommend a few of the earlier watch series before this one, I think my enjoyment was enhanced by that.

    "Nice Vimes story"
    If you could sum up Night Watch in three words, what would they be?

    I like the story also because it shed some light on the past of Lord Vetinari. The most brilliant tyrant of them all.

    Vimes as always. Dirty Harry of Ankh Morpork


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Briggs – was your favourite?

    Death


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Spoiler alert !! - Baby Sam being born
