Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all.

But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck...

Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive, because he has a job to do. He must track down a murderer, teach his younger self how to be a good copper and change the outcome of a bloody rebellion.

There's a problem:if he wins, he's got no wife, no child, no future...

A Discworld Tale of One City, with a full chorus of street urchins, ladies of negotiable affection, rebels, secret policemen and other children of the revolution.

Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a Hard-boiled Egg!

initially thought I had read to many Discworlds' back to back, however the story unfolded I ended up really enjoying this tale of time travel and revolution...engaging characters and the anti hero Vimes in both iterations very entertaining and thought provoking...

As another reviewer warned don't read to many back to back, but otherwise a wonderful book...

My favorite of the Discworld series. Vimes is a great original character in a great original series.

Be careful reading too many Discworld books back to back as some joke veins run through the whole series and begin to get repetitive if taken in large doses.

As always a good story. Don't know if I'd do that good of a job of bringing myself up. It is a good practice session for Sam as back in real time he is about to become a father.
