First a disclaimer As virtually a life long Pratchett fan I would probably buy anything he publishes If he were to release a book titled World of Poo I would probablyoh NevermindThe point I m making is that I can t be objective when it comes to this author the Discworld books are too much a part of my life I cried while watching TP s deeply personal euthanasia documentary I know certain Discworld characters better than I know members of my extended familyBut this is a review of Dodger not an essay on why I love DW so here it isThough colourful and engagingly written this isn t a very good bookIt isn t awful and there is plenty of fun historical trivia but I wouldn t recommend it Instead I would steer newbie readers to the City Watch William dW or Moist vL episodes of DiscworldThe most glaring problem here is the Godmode Gary Stu like protagonist In the space of approximately a week the teenage tosher sewage scavenger with uestionable personal hygiene1 receives not one but two fairy godfather like make overs and is accepted by the cream of London society at a fancy soiree2 wins the heart of a beautiful multilingual Princess despite barely exchanging three sentences Middle aged women are also apparently magnetically drawn to the young urchin throwing themselves at the teen demanding kisses in exchange for their assistance3 displays the fighting skills of Greebo the skinny teenager easily outmanoeuvres the Demon Barber of Fleet Street and professional assassins4 is recognised as a national hero and showered with money by grateful citizens who provide free coach rides in exchange for his autograph5 meets ueen Victoria probably the most powerful person in the world at that time and is accepted as virtually her eual Although to be fair this occurred several months after his ascension to national heroThe other problem that I have is the use of real historical figures such as Dickens Mayhew Disreali Robert Peel etc I got the impression that Sir Terry included people he respects and admires and perhaps this is part of the problem overlooking the implausibility of these gentleman all happening to take an interest in Dodger during a single week the characters never really came to life for me I got the impression that I was reading about cardboard placeholders for the real men rather than the living breathing and flawed characters that inhabit TP s other novelsAnd this brings me to my next issue which is possibly controversial the historical figures were all middle class or wealthy do gooders concerning themselves with charity towards the deserving poor There was no mention of working class figures of the industrial era organised labour movement the movement that would culminate in arguably the biggest ever shift in British society the post war Labour victory that led to the NHS radical redistribution of wealth the grammar schools and free University education all of which would have fundamentally shaped TP s childhood and adult opportunitiesPerhaps it isn t surprising that these working class heroes who were fighting for a fairer society for everyone were not included Because Dodger is fundamentally a rags to riches tale where the audience is asked to empathise with and applaud Dodger s rise to join the upper classes while throwing out the occasional sixpence whenever he feels a twinge of guilt Appropriately the book ends with the new Sir Dodger engaged in the robbery of a priceless historical treasure a tiara once belonging to Marie Antoinette No he is not intending to sell it and distribute the money to the many starving orphansgirls driven to prostitution who populate the book in an Animal Farm like ending Dodger is stealing Marie Antoinette s tiara for his new wife a former Princess Great lesson for the kids TerryDespite the above issues this could have been an engaging read if the antagonists had been fleshed out something that Pratchett is normally incredibly good at If we had been introduced to the Outlander and her possibly conflicted henchman earlier and been led to feel truly terrified and slightly awed by the assassin s ruthlessness and cunning as well as sympathy for her henchman it might have broken up the Gary Stu ness of the tale it might also have given us a true sense of fear for Dodger and Simplicity Additionally it would have been a chance to show us early Victorian Britain a through the eyes of an outsiderLastly wtf was up with Dodger s mentor Solomon When we first meet him he is apparently so down at heel that he lives in a slum and eagerly awaits Dodger s scavenged scraps of meat a few chapters later and it turns out that he is known and well spoken of by the most influential and wealthy people in the country he exchanges a secret handshake with Prince Albert and shares a laugh with him regarding their mutual acuaintancethe King of Sweden Willing suspension of disbelief can only be stretched so farUltimately this can be viewed as either a competently written watered down Dickens fanfic Dodger s real name is Pip Stick he grew up in a workhouse etc etc or a not very successful attempt to deconstruct the Dickensian novelIt can also be viewed as an inspirational tale for children which teaches them to um steal from the innocent for personal gain vandalise the property of people who happen to be from the same country as one bad apple and elope with a girl you hardly know who happens to have lovely hair And not to bother with school or even basic literacy because crime is so much rewardingAnd yet despite all of the above and my disappointment in Snuff for fairly similar reasons I ll continue to buy any new Pratchett novel in the hope that it contains some of the old Discworld magic moments of which though few were still present here Which is probably what his publishers are banking onAt least there was less scatology in this one

    While I mostly enjoyed Dodger I don't think I'll be reaching for Terry Pratchett books His narrative style if Dodger is indicative at all of the rest of his work is a bit too extra for my taste The wit the cleverness the puns it gets tiresome Also this kind of writing I find fitting for children's books and this one wasn't exactly that although Dodger feels like a 12 year old boy most of the book that is until he makes i
