Dodger
Dodger | Terry Pratchett
Beloved and bestselling author Sir Terry Pratchett's Dodger, a Printz Honor Book, combines high comedy with deep wisdom in a tale of one remarkable boy's rise in a fantasy-infused Victorian London. Seventeen-year-old Dodger is content as a sewer scavenger. But he enters a new world when he rescues a young girl from a beating, and her fate impacts some of the most powerful people in England. From Dodger's encounter with the mad barber Sweeney Todd, to his meetings with the great writer Charles Dickens and the calculating politician Benjamin Disraeli, history and fantasy intertwine in a breathtaking account of adventure and mystery.

Needed a new audiobook and this sounded fun! Anyone read it? It‘s been a few months since I‘ve read some Pratchett and this one is not Discworld.

Pratchett never fails to disappoint. Always a laugh, many a commentary on the parallels between his world and ours, sarcasm aplenty and a good story to hang it all on!

Bedroom door closed (husband doing bedtime duties), great book, and shopping for #SecretSantaGoesPostal ... Sorry, what was that? I couldn't hear you because I was introverting SO HARD.

This is not a Discworld book but a reimagining of Victorian England where Charles Dickens befriends a young man called Dodger. Lively, entertaining fun twist on historical fiction.

Like everything Pratchett wrote, Dodger is funny, imaginative, a little thoughtful, and, of course, entertaining. Being a fan of Victorian novels made this especially interesting to me., but I think anyone who wants a good adventure book would like it.

Readingrobin Well said! It's an amazing audiobook too! 4y
