Going Postal

A Discworld Novel

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.

But he's got to see that the mail gets through, 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...

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
