    1. My favourite Pratchett novel, but I'm not really sure why.I think that Sam Vimes' being in it definitely helps: I think my favourite "series" in the Discworld novels are the City Watch series (along with the witches of Lancre and Death). His character arc really comes to a head in this one, even though he still has another level to go to in Thud!I also think that time travel being in it also definitely helps. Though not the quantum, metaphysical, zany fun of Thief of Time (though Lu Tze makes an [...]

    2. from my blog at clsiewert.wordpress/2015/Thud! Thud!In one timeline, that’s the name of another Pratchett Discworld novel (the 34th, apparently).Thud!In another, that’s the sound of me marching to my own drum.In yet another, that’s the sound the vegetables thrown by my book-loving friends make when they hit my hard head.Because, honestly, this was in between the “okay” and ‘liked it” kind of read for me. Given my GR friend average rating of 4.52, I’m missing something. Most likel [...]

    3. While Terry Pratchett is known for the humor in his Discworld series, I enjoy them primarily because-- while on the surface, his books do indeed classify as humor, he also writes these almost painful realities, very human thoughts and incredibly immersive emotions in situations that you generally don't find in most humorous fantasy/sci-fi which tends more towards parody and caricatures. Though, I wouldn’t exactly say that the Discworld series isn't a parody-- because his books are parodies, or [...]

    4. "People are content to wait a long time for salvation, but prefer dinner to turn up inside an hour.""His Grace, His Excellency, The Duke of Ankh; Commander Sir Samuel Vimes" has been my acknowledged, unconquerable Discworld/literary C*R*U*S*H ever since .I would choose him over Mr Darcy & that's saying somethin'. Shame none of the Watch-books were put to film, I could have imagined the divine Alan Rickman (R.I.P.) playing him to perfection.But the time has come to reveal my -so far- secret ( [...]

    5. Terry Pratchett may have been the coolest writer on earth.Certainty one of the coolest.In 1969, Steve Winwood and his band mates in Blind Faith (some little known musicians named Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Ric Grech) sang these beautiful lyrics in the haunting song Can’t Find My Way Home.“Come down off your throne and leave your body aloneSomebody must changeYou are the reason I've been waiting all these yearsSomebody holds the keyWell, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the timeAnd I [...]

    6. I really enjoyed listening to this audio book. I thought the narrator was excellent with the different character's voices. It was all very entertaining. I adored the humour and the wit present throughout the book. It was the first book from Terry Pratchett I have read - I am not sure why I waited so long to read any of his output - but it will certainly not be the last. A fanstatic read.

    7. Following a magical accident, Watch Commander Samuel Vimes finds himself in the Ankh Morpork of his youth. The good news is that the criminal he was chasing has also joined him in the past, so no more cop murders in the present time. The bad news is, that Carcer Dun has more than enough charisma to join and thrive in the Day Watch of the time: a cruel organization way above the law.To keep up with the man, Sam Vimes will infiltrate the Night Watch, adopting the identity of his childhood hero, Jo [...]

    8. I may have said this when I finished the last Discworld book but this was by far the best Discworld book yet. Perhaps the best Pratchett book I've read. I loved it. It was not laugh out loud funny the way many of Pratchett's books are but it was so good. It was darker, delving into the history of Ankh-Morpork (Discworld's largest city) and allowing us glimpses into the past of several repeat characters, primarily Sam Vimes, Commander of the Night Watch, but also Lord Vetinari, Patrician of Ankh- [...]

    9. If I could give this book ten stars, I would. In fact, it makes me rethink all of the other books that I've given five stars, perhaps they don't deserve itHere's the problem: This book isn't going to have the right impact unless you've read, at the very least, three of the previous Ankh-Morpork Night Watch books. Please, if you have heard about Pratchett and are looking for some place to start, go with "Guards Guards!" or "Mort", and read a few more before you embark on this one. You'll thank me [...]

    10. Somehow Terry Pratchett seems to go down particularly well when I'm not feeling at my best. I've read several that I've enjoyed but not been particularly grabbed by. In comparison, the times that I've read one of his books while sick or exhausted, I have liked them a whole lot more.Note: The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in policy and enforcement. You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

    11. The City Watch books aren't my favourite of the Discworld series, which is probably an unpopular opinion - my easiest 5 stars tend to go to Death books and sometimes witches. My favourites still so far remain as Hogfather, Mort, and Equal Rites.However, I very much enjoy Vimes as a character and find his voice very entertaining and consistent. This was a solid story, a great concept for a plot, and more rounded than some of the books I've read so far. I was pretty impressed with how it came toge [...]

    12. 7.5/10This is rated as one of the best Discworld novels out there, a number of friends put this at the top of a highly rated pile so coming into this on those high hopes didn't take much for it to fall short for me.Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed this. It's a Watch novel which involves time travel. Talk about a winning combo! Add into that seeing all the characters you enjoy reading about at an earlier stage in their life, a revolution, and some quite emotional scenes then you have a recipe [...]

    13. I'm a sucker for a good story with time travel or reincarnation I see a book with those themes and I snatch it up if I have the funds. There's just something about them :)This one was on the good side around page 240 or so it dragged for awhile but picked right back up. Other than that little blip, it kept my attention quite nicely and made me smile when I thought about Sam revisiting his memories and having doubts as to whether it was him or Keel. I remember saying to him in my head "Don't thin [...]

    14. One of the best books in the Discworld series. The story revolves around Sam Vimes, and it's a very good example of the author's shift from slapstick comedy to a subtler form of humor and to targetting in his imaginary world real problems from the world we live in.Using the plot device of time travel, the author throws the Commander of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch back to a revolutionary episode of the city history and to his own apprenticeship in the Watch. The theme offers the author rich picki [...]

    15. Another Watch novel, in which Sam Vimes Is accidentally transported decades into the past in pursuit of a murderous psychopath, whereupon he must play the part of the old Sergeant who first taught young Lance Corporal Sam Vimes what it means to be a copper. Meanwhile, political unrest spreads across the city, the old Patrician is on his way out, and the barricades are going up. Vimes knows what’s going to happen – he was there after all – and he’s visited the graves every year since. And [...]

    16. Night Watch is the 6th book in the Watch subseries of Discworld. Surprisingly, I enjoyed this one pretty well. I say “surprisingly” because, as I’ve said in other reviews, Vimes often gets on my nerves. This book focuses on him very heavily, more than any other book since the first Watch book. However, we see more of the sarcastic and clever aspects of Vimes which I do enjoy and far less of the bitter, woe-is-me, self-destructive aspects which drive me crazy.This is a time travel story. Vi [...]

    17. Miałam tylko podczytać z okazji 25 maja, przeczytałam jednak całość po raz kolejny. To ciekawe, na ile sposobów można czytać tę powieść: tym razem towarzyszyło mi takie uczucie, że cała ta wyprawa Vimesa w przeszłość służyła temu, żeby mógł tak naprawdę ocalić Sybil. Owszem, postać doktora Lawna w pewnym momencie nieco schodzi z pierwszego planu, kiedy zaczyna się rewolucja, ale gdyby nie ta podróż w czasie, kto wie, co stałoby się z Sybil. Także to jest moje gł [...]

    18. I was right. It is my favorite Discworld novel so far. It is dark, gritty, hilarious, fun to read. And somehow, very real. It made me feel I was running chasing bad guys and tiptoeing along side Vimes. I would love a day hanging out with him, my fave character so far. And I think Vetinari was pretty awesome as well. Argh, can't wait to read the other Watch novels!

    19. I admit, I like Terry Pratchett a lot anyway, but "Night Watch" is hands down my favorite Discworld novels (Jingo comes in a distant second). One of the darkest and most complex of the City Watch stories, while pursuing a truly depraved criminal named Carcer, Commander Sir Samuel Vimes is thrown back through time on the eve of the birth of his son to help well, himself. Ankh-Morpork is on the brink of revolution, and somebody's got to make sure young Sammy doesn't die before his time.But it's so [...]

    20. Night Watch isn't the best place to start Pratchett, not because it would leave a bad impression, but because you just won't get as much out of it as a seasoned fan. That's because it's a novel that doesn't just follow on from the events of previous books, but that culminates, explains, and perhaps even justifies them. The plot may be close to standalone - there are very few facts a newcomer would need to learn to understand the plot - but the examination of, and recontextualisation of not only [...]

    21. Jeśli się głębiej zastanowić, w każdej rewolucji chodzi tak naprawdę o jajko na twardo. Dobre. Ciągle dobre. Bo w sumie jest tu wszystko co lubię: podróż w czasie, alternatywna rzeczywistość, spotkanie przeszłego ja, pokusa, by zmienić wydarzenia, a poza tym Ankh Morpork z czasów przed Vetinarim, młody Vetinari, stara straż przed swoim upadkiem i wzlotem, szwaczki i prawdziwa szwaczka, barykady, kwanty i miasto w najlepszym wydaniu. To chyba najlepsza książka Pratchetta, przy [...]

    22. I have read and enjoyed most of Pratchetts books set in the Disc World.For recent reads, whilst I have liked the books for the language and comedy, I have felt that the plots were getting formulaic.This book has reaffirmed my faith in Mr Pratchett. It is a wonderful read, full of pithy comments and hugely funny.

    23. The thing about Prachett's discworld books is, that once you've read five or six of them you've read them all.Aside from that they are the literary equivalent of a good cup of tea and a biscuit.

    24. Another winner in the City Watch series. I've read it before and am currently re-reading it. Here we travel back 30 years and meet a much younger Nobby Nobbs, Fred Colon, Havelock Vetinari, and Sam Vimes, new rookie constable. Even a teenage Sybil makes a cameo.Night Watch isn't as witty the previous two books. Not so much word play. Not as much political satire. This book is a more intense and more poignant novel, where Vimes, as his old street-savvy self — but disguised — must teach his yo [...]

    25. Vimes is one of Pratchett's characters that has grown greatly over the course of the Discworld series. This book affirms Vimes' place as the traditional family man, a far cry from where Vimes was when the reader is first introduced to him in Guards! Guards!.The story itself highlights the growth of Anakh-Morpork as well as gives the reader valuable insight into the city's recurring, though not central, characters, such as Reg Shoe, Nobby, and Colon. Pratchett seems to really like Vimes, and in f [...]

    26. I have written on here many times how much I love Terry Pratchett and how I literally feel like I cannot - can. not. - get enough of his Discworld series. [2015 update: still can't get enough.] I don't write reviews for all the books of his I read because that would be insanely repetitive for both me to write and for you to read. Those imaginary reviews would include the words 'comfort food for the soul' in every bloody review, I can tell you now.But I did want to write quickly about this little [...]

    27. 2005 October 9Sam Vimes is a most excellent policeman, the platonic ideal that is possible in a work of fantasy. Pratchett plays around with the idea of the past, both our own, and our society's, and dabbles with fate and bootstraps. Meanwhile, there is a psychopath to stop, and an insurrection to deal with, and the governing bodies of the past are worthless or deranged I can't even throw all those words into a review and come up with anything funny, let alone, insightful, which is what Pratchet [...]

    29. Where do I begin with this most beloved of books, by this most beloved of current authors? I guess I can start by explaining how I came to read the world-renowned works of Sir Terry “the new Chaucer”* Pratchett myself. It was because of a blog that I came across accidentally. The blogger was thrilled because a new Disc World book had come out in the USA, and she couldn’t wait to read about “Death’s granddaughter.” She added that she envied anyone who hadn’t read a single book in th [...]

    30. Unlike most other Discworld novels, this is not a funny book. It’s exploratory and philosophical and delves deep into the natures of leadership and decency, courage and tolerance. By accident, Sam Vimes, the Watch Commander of Ankh-Morpork and a Duke, is transported 30 years into the past, when the young Sam Vimes was just starting his work in the city police. The streets are boiling with unrest on the eve of a bloody rebellion, and it’s up to the older and much more experienced Vimes to pre [...]
