Going Postal Summary

Going Postal: (Discworld Novel 33) by Terry Pratchett

'Always push your luck because no one else would push it for you.'

Imprisoned in Ankh-Morpork, con artist Moist von Lipwig is offered a choice: to be executed or to accept a job as the city's Postmaster General.

It's a tough decision, but he's already survived one hanging and isn't in the mood to try it again.

The Post Office is down on its luck: beset by mountains of undelivered mail, eccentric employees, and a dangerous secret order. To save his skin, Moist will need to restore the postal service to its former glory, with the help of tough talking activist Adora Belle Dearheart. Who happens to be very attractive, in an 'entire womanful of anger' kind of way.

But there's new technology to compete against and an evil chairman who will stop at nothing to delay Ankh-Morpork's post for good . . .

'One of the best expressions of his unstoppable flow of comic invention' The Times

Going Postal is the first book in the Moist von Lipwig series, but you can read the Discworld novels in any order.

Going Postal Reviews

Pratchett can make you giggle helplessly and then grin grimly at the sharpness of his wit * Daily Mail *
'His world, increasingly subtle and thoughtful, has become as allegorical and satirical as a painting by Bosch ... Pratchett's joy in his creations, in jokes, puns, the idea of letters and language itself makes GOING POSTAL one of the best expressions of his unstoppable flow of comic invention.' * The Times *
'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.' * Time Out *
With all the puns, strange names and quick-fire jokes about captive letters demanding to be delivered, it's easy to miss how cross about injustice Terry Pratchett can be. This darkness and concrete morality sets his work apart from imitators of his English Absurd school of comic fantasy. * Guardian *
