A storm. Rain-lashed city streets. A flash of lightning. A scruffy lad sees a girl leap desperately from a horse-drawn carriage, in a vain attempt to escape her captors. Can the lad stand by and let her be caught again? Of course not, because he's... Dodger!

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. Read full review

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. Read full review
