    "Tosheroon of a book"

    I had never read or listened too anything by Terry Pratchett befor and now I know what I've been missing, what an amazing book and what an amazing story writer Terry is. I was captivated from start to finish, loved the story mixing facts with fiction and Steven Briggs narration makes for a wonderful listen, I'm now a Terry Pratchett convert.

    "Please Sir Terry, can I have some more?"

    I have put off listening to this as I am not all that much of a fan of the non-Discworld books but am now three quarters of the way through and am loving every second of Dodger. It may not be Discworld but Dickensian London feels very much like Ankh Morpork and with Steven Briggs doing the reading it is, as as always a delight to listen to. The characters are very memorable from the top geezer (and King of the Toshers) Dodger and his mentor, Sol to Charles Dickens, Henry Mayhew and even Sir Robert Peel, not to mention Onan!



    This is my favourrite Terry Pratchett title for a long time and I hope we hear more of the excellent Mr Dodger!

    "an excellent listen"

    It took a little while to get used to the narrators style having just finished listening to derek jacobi, but the characters and story were great fun, and very touching at times.

    "Up there with the best discworld novels!!!"

    I was unsure about this as it was not a discworld story and thought I might spend the whole book wishing it was. I could not have been more wrong it is absolutely superb. As always Steven Briggs narrates exactly as I would here the voices in my head, I always find with other narrators that some voices 'don't quite gel' but not with Mr Briggs. Pratchett/Briggs combo is as good (if not better) than Rowling/Fry.

    "Another great story"

    I'm an unashamed Pratchett fan and this is just simply another great story, I don't know how there can be so many themes he can make into a book and never be boring or repetitive, they are always entertaining and interesting and I really can't think of any criticism to make. Probably won't appeal to those with no sense of humour though.

    "Entertaining, easy read."

    Humorous with some interesting "cameo" characters from the period. Easy to read but didn't really grab me. Probably aimed more at teenagers / young adults.

    "entertaining"

    Full of historical characters which add to the fun I found this book very entertaining and up to the usual Pratchett standard. Excellent narration.

    "Pritchett at his best"

    This was such a wonderful listen: well written, beautifully narrated, educational, thought provoking and funny, everything you expect from Terry Pratchett. It drew on real & fictional events to create a wonderful tale that will stay with the reader for a long time & continue to amuse. Most enjoyable.

    "Dodger"

    This is so different to Mr Pratchetts disc world books, but he still has based it on something that we all know, this time Oliver Twists Dodger and Fagen, but he hasn't stopped there, he also based it on the Author Mr C Dickens. A fantastic story and one that will keep you enthralled.

    Thanks Terry keep it up as long as you can.

    "Enjoyable enough"

    I have read a lot of Terry Pratchett books (most more than once) Some I have loved, others I've enjoyed. This falls into the lower end of the 'enjoyed' category. There's nothing really wrong with it, but nothing particularly outstanding either. None of the characters particularly engaged me & the book doesn't have the laugh-out-loud moments that many of Pratchett's other books have, but I was interested enough to want to hear how it ended (even though it turned out to be a bit predictable).
