Familiar faces, even if it's not Discworld

Having read a number of Pratchett's non-Discworld books before, and enjoyed them, I was looking forward to this one. Even so, I was pleasantly surprised. It turns out that Dickensian London and the squallid, aromatic streets of Ank-Morpork have a lot in common, and this story could have taken place in either.

The story itself is enthralling. Not actually Pratchett's best, which is the only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5, but still great, and Briggs performance is just as good as it always is.

If you're considering getting this, but don't know if you'll enjoy a non-Discworld book, I'd encourage you to give in and do it. It's either a credit, or money, well spent.

Differently brilliant, clever and enchanting

Would you listen to Dodger again? Why?

Most definitely. There is so much I might have missed. Also it was such a delight to listen
to.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Dodger?

Too many to choose from


What does Steven Briggs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He made every character come alive in their own special way. What a magnificent reader he is. Would like to hear more of him.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

His encounter with his dying 'grandfather'.


Any additional comments?

It must be one of the most wonderful books that I have read in many years and I am of 'many years'! Well done to all concerned.
