Wonderful style and voice. Fascinating characters. Great fun! ( )

I always love the characters in Prattchet's books. Dodger is no exception. It is sprinkled with whit and humour as well as the grit and grime of London. I loved it! ( )

I thought this book was very well-done portraying the grimey streets of Victorian London with honest accuracy. More than just shades of Dickens in the telling of this story. ( )

Loved this! It was interesting reading something non-fantasy from Terry Pratchett. Great characters and the homage to Dickens is great. You can read it without ever having read Oliver Twist, but it would let you in on the inside jokes he drops. ( )

I love Charles Dickens, I love Victorian England, and I love happy endings. ( )

First words
The rain poured down on London so hard that it seemed it was dancing spray, every raindrop contending with its fellow for supremacy in the air and waiting to splash down.
