The town of Ankh-Morpork is in big trouble, and the City Watch is desperate for a few good men to protect it. But all they've got are the dwarves Corporal Carrot and Lance-constable Cuddy; the troll Lance-constable Detritus; Lance-constable Angua, who is believed to be a woman; and, worst of all, Corporal Nobbs, who has been disqualified from the human race for shoving! These underdogs need all the help they can get, for they've been given only 24 hours to clean up the war-torn town.

    " Pratchett brings together some characters from a couple of earlier books in the series - the night watchmen (Guards! Guards!) and a couple of the 'extras' from Holy Wood (Moving Pictures), to take on prejudice and affirmative action, and the second amendment, among other things, as only Pratchett can. Another fine addition to the series that had me laughing out loud several times - a hard thing for most books to do. "

    " Awesome, as always. I really like the Vimes books. :) "

    " I'd forgotten how good this was, and how brilliant some of the throw-away jokes were "

    " This book was a re-read for me and was quite hilarious. It is the second book in Pratchett's night watch series. In this book they have had to put into practice the new affirmative action hiring process in the night watch and so the new recruits include a dwarf, a troll, and a women. The beginnings of these characters is probably my favorite part about this book. The cultural misunderstandings and conflicts, how they are dealt with among the watch and among Ankh-Morpork City as a whole are interestin and funny. Also it was enjoyable to see how the charcters from the first book, "Guards! Guards!" such as Constable Carrot, Captain Vimes, and Lord Vetinari, are evolving and growing. Sometimes I forget how much I love Terry Pratchett's books, and then I read one. Always full of real laughter out loud. "

    " One of my favourites. Our world in microcosm with added humour. Read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skip | 11/29/2013

    " Liked this one much better than its predecessor. Characters are growing on me, especially Corporal Carrot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari | 11/20/2013

    " Laugh out loud funny! The scenes with Cuddy and Detritus were brilliant. Oh and not forgetting trousers at half-mast for a clown funeral! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 10/30/2013

    " Terry Pratchett is one of the funniest human beings on the planet. The Nightwatch books are my favorite Discworld series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clint | 10/1/2013

    " This is one of the best Disc World books! On Par with Reaper Man. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthea Strezze | 7/6/2013

    " Review to be added later. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 2/2/2012

    " This was the unedited audio version. A Discworld murder mystery with quite a few twists and turns. There are some amusing moments too, with a troll being unable to salute and Carrot not realising the obvious. An enjoyable way to walk to work with this on my Ipod. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Joossens | 12/5/2011

    " a favorite of mine, super fun and a wicked sense of humor. one i turn to whenever i want something fun and easy to read although it always seems to draw me into reading the whole series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd | 8/30/2010

    " This Discworld novel takes place in the metropolis, Ankh-Morpork, and focuses on race relations, affirmative action, and theories of governance. It is actually a mystery as well as adventure so it was very hard to put down. Yay Pratchett! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lillerina | 8/14/2010

    " One of the best. A great examination particularly of Carrot as a character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 3/8/2010

    " This is the first Pratchett novel I read. This novel is why I'm addicted the Pratchett! It's still my favorite of the Discworld series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodrigo Cabrera | 9/15/2009

    " SEguimos las aventuras de la valiente guardia nocturana de Ankmorpock con una guerra de fondo por un islote surgido en medio del mar....absolutamente hilarante una satira....y un nuevo viaje a las tierras del mundo disco "

    " amazing discworld novel. while not a classic... if there is such a thing as classic discworld novels... it's nigh on close! saying that i enjoyed the last one i read about the ankh morpork night-watch. nice character additions in angua, detritus & cuddy "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooklyn | 12/30/2008

    " At first the Watch books didn't seem as good to me as all the other discworld books but as I got deeper into them the soon became my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris Larson | 11/17/2008

    " I love the Discworld guards series, mainly because the character arc of Sam Vimes across the books is so well done. This book focuses more on Carrot, who is always a delight, but I prefer Carrot as seen through the astonished lens of Vimes's cynicism. Still, fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 6/8/2007

    " The Guards series is my favorite of the Discworld novels. I really enjoy this one for continuing to expand Carrot's character and going more in-depth as to why people like him so much. On to "Feet of Clay"! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 6/6/2007

    " In my opinion, the Guard books are the best of the Discworld series. Pratchett takes a bit of a serious turn with the second in the series, without losing the humor that makes the stories. "
