From the book jacket: Set in Pratchett's wonderfully crazed city of Ankh-Morpork, Going Postal hilariously
reflects the plight of post offices the world over as they struggle to compete
in an era when e-mail has stolen much of the glamour from the postal trade.
Comment: It's been a long time since I laughed as much reading a book as I did reading Going Postal. Actually, to be totally accurate, I didn't read Going Postal, I listened to the excellent 12 hour audio book read by Stephen Briggs. Going Postal is Terry Pratchett's 29th book in the Discworld series but there's absolutely no need to have read anything else in the series to appreciate this wonderful satire of the postal service, corporate corruption, stamp collecting and so much else. Despite having more than 35 million books in print Pratchett remains relatively unknown in the USA. You can browse an exclusive excerpt at BookBrowse.
For Pratchett fans: Don't miss Thud - Pratchett's 30th Discworld novel, published in hardcover last month.
