It's not as if the Watch hasn't got problems of its own. There's a werewolf suffering from Pre-Lunar Tension, Corporal Nobbs is hob-nobbing with the nobs, and there's something really strange about the new dwarf recruit, especially his earrings and eyeshadow.
Who can you trust when there are mobs on the street and plotters in the night and all the clues point the wrong way? In the gloom of the night, Watch Commander Sir Samuel Vimes finds that the truth may not be out there after all...

A solid detective story in a fantasy setting
Would you listen to Feet of Clay again? Why?
As one of the "middle" City Watch books, Pratchett was really getting into his stride in evolving the characters and the city they inhabit. The story itself is nicely paced and doesn't suffer from any slow moments.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Feet of Clay?
This is the story where golems suddenly pop up as one of the many races inhabiting the Disc, so quite a few good moments circle around characters as they try to understand these strange man-made creatures. The sub-story about the Patrician's poisoning is particularly entertaining too.If I had to pick a winning moment without giving away any spoilers, I'd have to say that the bag of sugar has to be the best moment for me.
Which character – as performed by Nigel Planer – was your favourite?
Vimes is always a treat when performed by Planer, but to be honest most of the characterisations are entertaining.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I have done, several times.
Any additional comments?
It's probably worth checking out Men at Arms or Guards! Guards! first otherwise you might find this whole "Discworld" thing confusing.

Great, as usual, but with a glitch
This is the fifth Terry Pratchett I've bought, I'm going to work/listen my way through the entire library. Nigel Planer is absolutely brilliant and perfect as a narrator, I may move on to listen to everything he's narrated.
There is a "skip" in Part One, Chapter Four, minute 56:20. The narration moves from Foul Ole'Ron and the others shrinking away from a strange figure in the night, and jumps to the suicide of a golem in the butcher's workshop.
I can't get Audible customer support to understand my complaint - there's a problem with the recording! - or respond to it.
I still like the story, and the recording, I just wonder what I'm missing.

The characters in this fantastic Terry Pratchett story are brought to life by the reader, bringing a whole new layer to the great tales that Terry Pratchett writes.
