Going Postal

(Discworld Novel 33)

Discworld Novels 33

The post was an old thing, of course, but it was so old that it had magically become new again.

Moist von Lipwig is a con artist and a fraud and a man faced with a life choice: be hanged, or put Ankh-Morpork's ailing postal service back on its feet.

It’s a tough decision.

The post is a creaking old institution, overshadowed by new technology. But there are people who still believe in it, and Moist must become one of them if he's going to see that the mail gets though, come rain, hail, sleet, dogs, the Post Office Workers Friendly and Benevolent Society, the evil chairman of the Grand Trunk Semaphore Company, and a midnight killer.

Getting a date with Adora Bell Dearheart would be nice, too.

Perhaps there's a shot at redemption in the mad world of the mail, waiting for a man who's prepared to push the envelope...

Rezension
"'Like many of Pratchett's best comic novels, it is a book about redemption ... There's a moral toughness here, which is one of the reasons why Pratchett is never merely frivolous.'"

In his new bestseller in the Discworld series Pratchett introduces the "Royal Mail" to the Discworld. A notorious forger and cheater is hung for his deads, just hung enough for the audience to believe him dead. But he is offered a second chance for life - as the Postmaster. So he revives the old post and invents stamps on his way - to his amazement a form of money he can print as much of as he likes...

Going postal is definitely one of the best books by Terry Pratchett in the recent years. I've been missing this satirical humour, but now he's back again... DEATH is still missing, but okay... I'm looking forward to his next book
