Night Watch by Terry PratchettNight Watch

‘Don’t put your trust in revolutions. They always come round again. That’s why they’re called revolutions. People die, and nothing changes.’

For a policeman, there can be few things worse than a serial killer at loose in your city. Except, perhaps, a serial killer who targets coppers, and a city on the brink of bloody revolution. The people have found their voice at last, the flags and barricades are rising…And the question for a policeman, an officer of the law, a defender of the peace, is:

Are you with them, or are you against them?


He says:
  • Cover: Like it!
  • Synopsis: Liked it… a bit ambiguous because it doesn’t give too much and the book seemed a bit different than the synopsis.
  • Page 99: — Listened on Audible.
  • Favorite character: I really like Ned. He grew a lot in the book and questioned everything.
  • Plot pluses: Good moral self examination.
  • Plot minuses: Very unlike his other stories. I was expecting satire and this one was more serious.
  • Rating: 4/5
  • Further comments: It’s a very good story that really makes you think about what I would do if I were in Vimes’s situation? It’s a book that makes you think long after you’ve finished reading.


She says:


  • Cover: Dark, mysterious, interesting! I like that I have no idea what the egg is about until later in the story.
  • Synopsis: I like it! Concise, to the point, compelling!
  • Page 99: Listened on Audible.
  • Favorite character: I think young Sam Vimes is my favorite character. It’s hard to say for this one but it was very interesting to see Vimes before he knew all about coppering.
  • Plot pluses: The in’s and out’s and multiple plot lines that Terry Pratchett is able to tie all together!
  • Plot minuses: Same as the plot pluses. If you miss one thing you’ll miss it all! Like the egg for instance!
  • Rating: 4/5
  • Further comments: I just love Terry Pratchett and I’m trying to get through his entire series before the end of 2012. That said, I love to listen and re-listen to all of these stories and wind up listening to one story for over a month! This particular book didn’t take me any time at all, but I did listen to it twice because it’s more fun than a barrel of librarians. Full review of Night Watch by Terry Pratchett coming soon!
