The Night Watch, Audiobook (1998/2006/2010) Sergei Lukyanenko translated by Andrew Bromfield, narrated by Paul Michael (Night Watch)


“The common good and the individual good rarely coincide . . .”

Sure, I know. It’s true.

But some truths are probably worse than lies.

When I ran out of podcasts I wanted to listen to for the week, I decided to listen to a favorite: the Night Watch series.

Anton Gorodetsky is a member of the Night Watch.

“Boris Ignatievich, you always told me I was just an average magician!”

“Well, let’s just say I need an excellent programmer more than one more field operative.”

But he apparently spent too much time in the office, and now gets to spend time in the field–whether he wants to or not.

The book is divided into three stories: Destiny, Among His Own Kind, All for My Own Kind. All three stories follow Anton, but there are other characters–marvelous characters like Semyon, Ilya, Yulia, Olga–and of course Gesar.

“It’s okay to get drunk, Anton. If you need to real bad. Only you have to get drunk on vodka. Cognac and wine— that’s all for the heart.”

“So what’s vodka for?”

“For the soul. If it’s hurting real bad.”

But mostly this is all about the story

In a war the most dangerous thing is to understand the enemy. To understand is to forgive.

But mostly it’s the story that I love so much.
