it was amazing
I own a copy , read count: 15

The first line of the book (one of my favorite first lines of any book) really sets the tone for the rest of the novel.
This was actually my introduction to the City Watch. Wow, what a way to learn about the characters.
This book concentrates on Sam Vimes, who is feeling a little worn out being the commander of the watch, and is wishing for a simpler time. He gets his wish.
There are so many things going on in this story. Time travel, serial killer, magic (of course), political intrigue, revolution, etc. That if it had been in the hands of a different author, might have been hard to follow. But the story unfolds quickly, and you are never allowed to take a breath. Towards the end of the book where Vimes is falling asleep standing up, you can relate.
Not the funniest Discworld book, but it has it's great moments. Riduclly's bath for example.
The ending is sweet and lovely.
