Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck... Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive, because he has a job to do. He must track down a murderer, teach his younger self how to be a good copper and change the outcome of a bloody rebellion. There's a problem: if he wins, he's got no wife, no child, no future... A Discworld Tale of One City, with a full chorus of street urchins, ladies of negotiable affection, rebels, secret policemen and other children of the revolution. Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a Hard-boiled Egg!

    Comment on this review

    And still they come - Terry Pratchett's prodigal invention shows not the slightest sign of flagging, and his wonderfully witty Discworld books make up for the occasional thin patch by a colourfully orchestrated succession of brilliant gags and sardonically bizarre plotting. Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had finally achieved all that he has aimed for in life. But at a stroke he finds himself back in the past, courtesy of an unfortunate flash of lightning. He finds living in the past hard, but as always he has a job to do: tracking down a murderer, teaching his younger self out to be a good policeman and incidentally altering the course of history. This 27th Discworld novel has much of the energy and panache that been missing from some of the books of late. The comic possibilities of the time travel paradox have brought out Pratchett's winning skills in full force once again, and Sam Vimes is, of course a much-loved character. Pratchett is one of the few authors who is a real celebrity - and Night Watch reminds us that such celebrity is justified. (Kirkus UK)
