If you're a Sci Fi/Fantasy or Mystery fan you may have heard of
Discworld and Terry Pratchett. Pratchett somehow manages to write
hilarious, engaging, wise, and thoroughly entertaining books which are
both perfect examples of their genre (noir mystery, sword and sorcery
fantasy, steampunk adventure) and sly, affectionate parodies of their
genre. Discworld can be intimidating to people new to the series, but
this book is an excellent entry point.

Night Watch is a time travel adventure starring Sam Vimes, our jaded
film-noir ish detective/ reluctant aristocrat hero. The story opens
as Sam and the vicious serial killer he is chasing are struck by magic
lighting and thrown 30 years into the past, on the eve of a bloody
street revolution. The plot gets complicated, the list of characters
grows, and Pratchett throws in lots and lots of extremely British
humor. Give it a try!

Description


One moment, Sir Sam Vimes is in his old patrolman form, chasing a sweet-talking psychopath across the rooftops of Ankh-Morpork. The next, he's lying naked in the street, having been sent back thirty years courtesy of a group of time-manipulating monks who won't leave well enough alone. This Discworld is a darker place that Vimes remembers too well, three decades before his title, fortune, beloved wife, and impending first child. Worse still, the murderer he's pursuing has been transported back also. Worst of all, it's the eve of a fabled street rebellion that needlessly destroyed more than a few good (and not so good) men. Sam Vimes knows his duty, and by changing history he might just save some worthwhile necks—though it could cost him his own personal future. Plus there's a chance to steer a novice watchman straight and teach him a valuable thing or three about policing, an impressionable young copper named Sam Vimes.
