Definitely not my favorite Terry Pratchett book, but still a fun read. I loved that it was a story about one of my favorite Dickens' characters, I always thought Dodger deserved his own book! The story was great, as were the characters. Its not as out there or quirky as the Discworld books I have read but still had that Pratchett feel. It was a little hard to follow at times, but not that bad, and that may just be due to the fact I listened to on audio book while driving in the car and may have missed things here and there.
