Dodger Summary

Dodger by Terry Pratchett

A brand new edition of a Terry Pratchett classic - set in Victorian London, and starring cunning but kind Dodger, as he sets off on a whirlwind adventure through the city streets

THE SEWER IS DODGER'S WORLD . . .


He hunts treasure there - coins and jewels lost in the dark and dirty drains. It's a good life, if you don't mind getting your hands (and arms and feet and face) dirty.

But one night, Dodger helps a young woman flee two ruffians. Now, a street urchin dressed as a gentleman, he must discover the secret behind her escape.

Along the way he'll befriend Charles Dickens, outwit Sweeny Todd and reach the giddy heights of Victorian society.

Dodger may be living in the gutter, but he's heading for the stars . . .

Dodger 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
