Fantasy • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

In this intensely funny novel, which is part of the science fiction series Discworld, the Night Watch of the capital city Ankh-Morpork experiences political correctness as it must hire a troll, a dwarf, a werewolf and an adopted dwarf who may be the rightful heir to the kingdom. The panoply of Discworld is there: assassins, clowns, soldiers, fools, beggars, talking dogs, sorcerers and the orangutan librarian. British actor Nigel Planer portrays them all believably and effortlessly. His portrayal of the troll Detritus is especially hilarious when the IQ of that lumpish individual begins rising as, caught in a freezer, his internal temperature falls. Outstanding.
