Dodger – Terry Pratchett

A children’s historical novel set in the early part of Victoria’s reign. It features Charles Dickens, Sweeney Todd and other people from that time. Even Karl Marx gets a mention.

I wouldn’t bother with the book. I didn’t particularly like any of the characters and the main character was especially awful. The plot was turgid. Not one of Terry Pratchett’s best. I did read it to the end though…a predictable end. Still better than Harry Potter, just.
