Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The audiobook of Night Watch is narrated by impressionist and actor Jon Culshaw, best known for BBC Radio 4’s Dead Ringers, and for the Doctor Who audiobooks and dramas. BAFTA and Golden Globe award-winning actor Bill Nighy (Love Actually; Pirates of the Caribbean; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) reads the footnotes, and Peter Serafinowicz (Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace; Shaun of the Dead) stars as the voice of Death. Featuring a new theme tune composed by James Hannigan.

'DON'T PUT YOUR TRUST IN REVOLUTIONS. THEY ALWAYS COME ROUND AGAIN. THAT'S WHY THEY'RE CALLED REVOLUTIONS. PEOPLE DIE, AND NOTHING CHANGES.'

The twenty-fifth of May is an important, sombre day in Ankh-Morpork - the anniversary of one of the city's bloodiest rebellions.

But crime stops for nothing, as Commander Sam Vimes of the City Watch knows. When a notorious serial killer emerges from hiding, the chase leads the Watch to the roofs of Unseen University where a magical storm is brewing. It's a case of wrong place, very wrong time.

For Vimes finds himself back in his own rough, tough past with only a killer for company and a city on the brink of revolution to contend with. But he must survive, because he has a job to do: track down the murderer and change the outcome of the rebellion.

And get back to the future before his wife gives birth, of course.

All in a day's work...

Night Watch is the sixth book in the City Watch series, but you can listen to the Discworld novels in any order.

The first book in the Discworld series - The Colour of Magic - was published in 1983. Some elements of the Discworld universe may reflect this.

Great Vimes performance.

Great voices, sometimes the performer loses track of who is saying what, but otherwise great.

Wonderful reading of a wonderful book

An impressively level-headed look at war and what makes us human

This was a hard listen with *gestures* everything happening, but I’m so glad I stuck by it. Every time it could have taken a “dramatic” turn, Sir Terry steered the narrative to remain fair and even/handed, even when you as a reader may be clamouring for “more” - and the. Asking yourself why the more is warranted, or preferable or fair.

An incredibly heartfelt book.
