Dodger is a tosher - a sewer scavenger living in the squalor of Dickensian London.

Everyone who is nobody knows Dodger. Anyone who is anybody doesn't.

But when he rescues a young girl from a beating, suddenly everybody wants to know him.

And Dodger's tale of skulduggery, dark plans and even darker deeds begins . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
Here, once again, is the mark of a great writer . . . we are captivated by ingenious word-building on every page . . . As Dodger's triumphant path ultimately brings him honour from the very highest rank of society, we cannot help but cheer not only for his success, but also for the success of this ebullient, funny and delightful novel. * Guardian *
Wonderful. * Daily Mail *
Dodger feels fresh, vibrant and full of energy, a triumph that should be celebrated as yet another glorious gift from Narrativia. * SFX *
[A] superb novel . . . full of eccentric characters and carefully detailed London scenes, the tale embodies both Dickens's love for the common man and a fierce desire for social justice. * Publishers Weekly *
It's a masterwork from a treasure and hero of a writer, and it will delight you. -- Cory Doctorow

“Not for me”

I love the witty way Terry Pratchett writes, and all the clever wordplay, which is one of the reasons I have always loved the Discworld novels. However, I struggled to get through this book which really didn't... More

“Dodger”

Yet another Terry Pratchett must have. Lots of laughs but I'm sure that I missed some first time round, so I'm really looking forward to reading it again soon. Thank you Terry.
