Adventures in Victorian London

Another brilliant story, with three dimensional characters, all recognisable from history, fiction or imagination. This book highlights some of the issues of the extreme poverty and squalid living conditions of this era without slowing the pace of the story. As always, Steven Briggs' narration and characterisation is flawless.

Gripping

A truly brilliant story with 3D characters. As I expected a well written complex story that needs your attention if you are to get full worth. I highly recommend this book.

Sometimes real life has fantastic characters

Different from the discworld I am used to but still a sumptuous mix of intriguing characters, well woven story strands and uncomplicated but elegant comedy that make this book a fine addition to the great man's legacy.

Dodger is a terrific listen

I enjoyed Dodger greatly. The wit that Terry Pratchett demonstrates with such ease makes for a terrific book. I love the way Stephen Briggs narrates the story, the twists and turns, taking an old world and turning it upside down. Bravo Terry to you who are now above. I would say its a hugely "must" listen.

Dodger.

Pratchett's homage to Dickensian London. Funny, exciting and a thoroughly good story. Stephen Briggs narrates wonderfully as usual

Brilliant

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

What a great read, already recommended to friends and the kids, who listened with me, have raved to their friends. Great sense of history and loved the references to historical characters.

What other book might you compare Dodger to, and why?

The obvious answer is Oliver Twist, the historical setting and characters being common to both.

Have you listened to any of Steven Briggs’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No

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

Throughout the book you are made aware of the fragility of life in Victorian times and the acceptance of death.
