One moment, Sir Sam Vimes is in his old patrolman form, chasing a sweet-talking psychopath across the rooftops of Ankh-Morpork. The next, he's lying naked in the street, having been sent back thirty years courtesy of a group of time-manipulating monks who won't leave well enough alone. This Discworld is a darker place that Vimes remembers too well, three decades before his title, fortune, beloved wife, and impending first child. Worse still, the murderer he's pursuing has been transported back also. Worst of all, it's the eve of a fabled street rebellion that needlessly destroyed more than a few good (and not so good) men. Sam Vimes knows his duty, and by changing history he might just save some worthwhile necks-though it could cost him his own personal future. Plus there's a chance to steer a novice watchman straight and teach him a valuable thing or three about policing, an impressionable young copper named Sam Vimes.… (més)

In which Samuel Vimes, Duke of Ankh Morpork, is thrown back in time with a murderous criminal. To the end days of Lord Winder's Patrician-ship. And a Watch House that needs roughed into shape with a young recruit still wet behind the ears by the name of Sam Vimes.

The story of the barricade and the 7 casualties of the stand off between the citizens of the city and the cavalry is poignant and moving. I love Vimes' conversation with Vetinari in the last pages of the book. ( )

It's so hard to write a good time travel novel. Add in a crazy magical place like Ankh-Morpork and you have yourself a hard job. But of course, Terry Pratchett is up for anything, always, and he has fun while he does it. Fairly certain this man could have written a history of the English language that featured some kind of pun loving ogre with a kitten sized griffin for a sidekick...and it would have made complete sense. I am only sorry that he is not around to do it. ( )

A fine place to start reading Pratchett if you don't mind a few ''in'' jokes, ''Night Watch'' transcends standard genre fare with its sheer schoolboy humor and characters who reject their own stereotypes.
 
What makes the book intriguing is Pratchett's Chestertonian common-sense morality. While his blunt logic doesn't always equip him to deal with the niceties (at one point, he seems to argue against any controls on gun ownership), it allows him to break through liberal confusions and conservative certainties.
afegit per melmore | editaThe Independent, Robert Hank (Nov 29, 2002)
 
Not a side-splitter this time, though broadly amusing and bubbling with wit and wisdom: both an excellent story and a tribute to beat cops everywhere, doing their hair-raising jobs with quiet courage and determination.
afegit per melmore | editaKirkus Review (Nov 12, 2002)
 
Stories both trap people in a continuum and console them with images of beginnings and ends. Pratchett is a master storyteller.
afegit per Shortride | editaThe Guardian, A. S. Byatt (Nov 9, 2002)

"When Mister Safety Catch Is Not On, Mister Crossbow Is Not Your Friend."

-- Detritus learns about weapons safety (Terry Pratchett, Night Watch)
"Don't put your trust in revolutions. They always come around again. That's why they're called revolutions. People die, and nothing changes."

-- (Terry Pratchett, Night Watch)
'It's not me, you understand,' said Vimes, 'but if I went back
and showed my captain this piece of paper and he said to me,
Vi- Keel, how d'you know he's Henry the Hamster, well, I'd be a
bit... flummoxed. Maybe even perplexed.'

-- (Terry Pratchett, Night Watch)
Maybe the best way to build a bright new world is to peel some spuds in this one.
'One's got a lot of holes in his feet, one dropped through the privy roof and has got a twisted leg, and one's dead.'

'I don't think I can do much about the dead one' said the doctor. 'How do you know he's dead? I realize I might regret asking that question.'

'He's got a broken neck from falling off a roof and I reckon he fell off because he got a steel crossbow bolt in his brain.'

'Ah. That sounds like dead, if you want my medical opinion.'

(Terry Pratchett, Night Watch)
