Review of 'Night Watch' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Re reading for the millionth time, I love this book so much it's unnatural. This is the American paperback, so I now have two copies, I'm reading to look out for the subtle version changes when books are published in other countries. The story is beautifully told with twists and turns that still catch me out, years after the first time I read it. I'm still in love with Vimes of course, and the brutality of the regime that he fights against still appals. Not least because it causes him to unleash his inner beast. It's a great novel for anyone familiar with the Discworld though if you haven't a knowledge of the characters of the City Watch from previous books you will miss some of the humour and back references.
