He is about to be executed for theft when Lord Vetinari, the city dictator goes by the title Patricianoffers the charming swindler a way out. Los chistes y los gags. His fantasy has layers inside it’s layers. Granny Weatherwax is still my favorite, but Sir Terry has succeeded again I love it when one work of cagtas makes me think of another and my enjoyment tery both is enhanced. Going Postal Discworld 33 by Terry Pratchett. Sir Terry Pratchett passed away on 12th March The trery itself held my interest really well.

In Going Postalthe enlightened despot of Ankh Morpork, Lord Vetinari, rather forcibly recruits a con man, Moist pratchetr Lipwig, to take over the running of the venerable and deserted post office, where letters have been accumulating for years — if not decades — without delivery.

After that, the list gets blurrier, but nevertheless, Going Postal is among best. I have only read the Discworld books featuring the City Watch, and the related follow-up books featuring a spin-off character in this book, Moist Von Lipwig.

Monetary Relativity No better theory of money exists than Pratchett’s: In fact, I think this may be the first Discworld book for which I actually stayed up a few minutes past my bedtime one night because I wanted to know what would happen next. Which was my reason to postpone reading this book after I suffered from a severe Terry Pratchett fatigue. Arch-swindler Moist Van Lipwig never believed his confidence crimes were hanging offenses – until he found himself with a noose tightly around his neck, dropping through a trapdoor, and falling into I especially like this one for two main reasons.


I enjoyed the ending, and I particularly liked the choices Moist made it the end. Compared to the grueling epics I recall from years ago, Pratchett’s style was brisk and entertaining, his humor completely suffusing the tone of the book in a way that reminded me of Douglas’ Adams’ approach to science fiction. Will he succeed at setting up a working postal system — despite ignorance, interference, and outright sabotage?

Turns out, years spent scamming and conning the public have excellently prepared Moist von Lipwig with the skill set needed to run a vast corporation. You’re sure it can’t go wrong I ate this book up and bought copy of “Gu Xsunto am probably the last person on earth to read Terry Pratchett, but I’m glad I finally did. His best work feels surprisingly profound even though you’re also laughing so hard you’re afraid you might break a rib. It was a good way of getting prtchett really very quickly, and staying poor.

The anti-hero is Mr. Going Postal is essentially a book about hope. Going Postal definitely ranks among my top 3 Discworld books.


Discworld 1 – 10 of 41 books. Yet, I’ve never rated anything less than three stars because I laughed, at least once, while reading each book. She has a particularly fun scene involving use of her high-heeled shoe to deal with an overly-friendly drunk. Besides being a great entry into the Discworld mythos, this is also just vartas good book; Pratchett, getting better like a fine wine, spins a good yarn.

Since his only other option is a nonliving one, Moist accepts the position – and the hulking golem watchdog who comes along with it, just in case Moist was considering abandoning his responsibilities prematurely.

Cute, but kind of stale–like Seinfeld.

While I use e-mail and sometimes text messages, Pratchtt still enjoy writing and receiving old-fashioned paper letters. I suppose Pratchett may not be to everyone’s taste and I was not sure he would be to mine but he seems to be very skilled in his particular niche.
