    Of all the discworld 'themes' I like the City Watch the best. This one introduces some great new characters who stick around for several more books. Good story, good jokes

    Re-read. Ah, this is a good one. Not one of my FAVOURITE favourite Discworld novels, but one of the best, oh, 15 for sure! Carrot and Vetinari both feature strongly, and. I am ever so fond of subverted fantasy tropes. Sybil has not QUITE developed into the formidable character of the later books, and neither have Vimes' and Vetinari's relationship, but yeah. You can bet you sweet ass I dived right inot Feet of Clay after finishing this one.

    You know this is a good book/audio when your 10 yo starts quoting from passages that he heard. A great listen that makes me want to go back and actually read the book. It is a tie between Gaspode and Lance corporal Detritus. My son even made the comparison of the troll Coleface with Donald Trump ("I ain't done nothing").

    Unique writing style. Story flows rather effortlessly but it does little good to try to anticipate the flow of events. A good read especially if you want to avoid any reference to modern day events.

    I love the watch series more than Amy of the discworld themes. This one doesn’t disappoint! Carrot is such a great character. I can’t wait for the next one.

    Probably the best of "The Night Watch" Disc World books I have read thus far.

    The best so far. Funny and touching as always, but also a great mystery.

    This is just one of Terry Pratchett's many Discworld novels, the entire series is terrific. I am partial to the ones that focus on Ankh Morpork's City Watch and the always entertaining and clever Commander Vimes. It's easy to become overwhelmed when approaching this series for the first time as there are well over 40 of them, so my advice is start at the beginning and if you don't like the subject or storyline, go on to the next. They are all semi-stand alone so you won't get too lost. I find th This is just one of Terry Pratchett's many Discworld novels, the entire series is terrific.

    I am actually disappointed! It is a little lethargic, and you really need to cajole yourself to get into main story. And, when things become interesting, Mr. Pratchett, does not give details, which keeps you pondering through the pages to look for answers. This really makes it a toil. The political sarcasm exists but it failed to lure me. It could have been better with more things happening, but the story lacks adrenalin! Its a comic-crime novel. But, the comedy stops, as soon as you start to grin I am actually disappointed! It is a little lethargic, and you really need to cajole yourself to get into main story.

But, the comedy stops, as soon as you start to grin and the crime scenes does not give you a vivid picture! In short, I really can't say I liked it. Hope, I don't come across the same with other stories!

    Pretty entertaining book. Some of the same issues I typically have with Pratchett: sometimes too silly and not really fantasy. In Men at Arms, he introduces some very likable characters who deal with circumstances that actually raise some thought-provoking questions, including race relations, gun control, and capital punishment. The murder mystery is a little hard to follow, at times, and it seemed like a lot of running around with nowhere to go for much of the book. Overall, reasonably fun, som Pretty entertaining book.
