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


Night Watch is a new (and wild) adventure in the bestselling Discworld series, which has sold more than 21 million books worldwide. While fighting a ruthless murderer on the top of the library building of the Unseen University, Same Vimes, Commander of the City Watch, has been thrown back in time. At least he thinks he's gone back in time. He sees his younger self, but when he looks in the mirror, his old sergeant looks back. To top that off, the city is on the brink of a revolt, there's a curfew, the police are corrupt, the committee of Public Safety is incompetent, and he has to help man the barricades. Furthermore, the man whose body he has taken over died in the revolt that Vimes is now a part of.... Prachett's last two novels, The Fifth Elephant and Thief of Time, hit both the Los Angeles Times and the San Francisco Chronicle bestseller lists. Fantastic Audio's production of Thief of Time is a finalist for the conveted Audie Award for Excellence and Innovation in Production. Night Watch is produced by the same Fantastic Audio team.
