While it is different from Sir Terry's other fiction, this book enamored me from the first chapter. It is a most literate, fascinating, and wonderful! historical fantasy story, set in early Victorian London, with Charles Dickens as one of the main characters. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I admit to reading his acknowledgments at the end of the book first, which helped give the narrative much more meaning to me. One ought not let the fact that Dodger is not set in Discworld dissuade you from getting this book immediately. It is Fine Literature of the highest degree. Enjoy! ;-)

    Very interesting, conceptually, and executed with the flair that i have come to expect from Sir Terry's work over the years. I have always enjoyed his young adult titles as much as his adult fiction.

    Another Great Work by Pratchett

    A rollicking good time. The only criticism I have is that the climax feels *slightly* anti-climatic. A wonderful read regardless and definitely recommended.

    A real good story. Throughout the book carries the tale of Dodger, a tosher in England in the time of Charles Dickens. A rollicking story of survival and triumph of an orphan of 17 years that has mastered the arts of street survival. With a wonderful, and lucky, cast of characters the story is great. I just wish the ending had been concluded without a token goodbye to the characters and storyline.

    Another great book from a great author

    I love almost all his books and this is no exception. Not set in Disc world but with many of the same themes and kinds of characters. The nod to real history adds to the story. Quite enjoyable.

    I got to love the Dodger ... admittedly slowly at first, as I am not usually a historical fiction person ... and was delighted by the way he thought and saw the world around him.

    Great book!

    This book was quite a bit different from anything I've read by Terry Pratchett before. I guess it shows that great writers can write anything. I really enjoyed this book. The story & characters were excellent. I believe Terry did a lot of research on the time period in London this story takes place & it gives some real insite into what it was like to live there then. I highly recommend it!
