    Hardcover ¶ Going Postal ePUB º going epub, postal ebok, Going Postal Kindle35 starsThis is only my 2nd Discworld book so technically I've skipped over 32 books to get to Going Postal I didn't care for the 1st book in the series but this one kept getting recommended to me over and over again so I thought I'd give the audiobook version a shotThe first several hours were kind of boring and unfunny to me so I ended up giving up on it and listening to a few romance novels and a Sherlock Holmes story before I came

    Hardcover ¶ Going Postal ePUB º going epub, postal ebok, Going Postal KindleThe mail must get throughHe was part of the government wasn't he Governments took money off people That's what they were forTurns out years spent scamming and conning the public have excellently prepared Moist von Lipwig with the skill set needed to run a vast corporationWho knewMy Discworld reading for the Humour Club has had its ups and downs Some books I loved some bored me to tears one I didn't finish I thrilled to the adventures of the witches laughed at the exploits of the Night Watch and frowned upon the know it all wizards Seriously could they be pompous It's like reading a book where every single character is my mother in law Yet I've never rated anything less than three stars because I laughed at least once while reading each book But now I'm in love again and the spring is comin'I'm in love again hear my heart strings strummin' This one is EVERYTHING a Discworld book can be funny touching cleve

    Hardcover ¶ Going Postal ePUB º going epub, postal ebok, Going Postal KindleI love it when one work of art makes me think of another and my enjoyment of both is enhancedThe executive office meeting subseuent to the gallows made me think of Mel Brooks’ hilarious 1974 film Blazing Saddles and Harvey Korman’s portrayal of Hedley LaMarr So throughout the rest of the novel I eschewed the British aristocratic drawl of Lord Vetinari and replaced with Korman’s robber baron prose for full comedic effectGranny Weatherwax is still my favorite but Sir Terry has succeeded again in making a GREAT Discworld n

    Hardcover ¶ Going Postal ePUB º going epub, postal ebok, Going Postal KindleFor the longest time Going Postal has been my best known unread book Having watched and rewatched the SkyOne TV adaptation I had sort of tacitly decided that actually reading the book was not high on my list of priorities Plus Charles Dance is the uintessential Lord Vetinar

    Hardcover ¶ Going Postal ePUB º going epub, postal ebok, Going Postal KindleWelcome to the Industrial Revolution Well technically we already had three books belonging to that sub series though I only really consider two of those truly to be of that subject but this one is full of industry And not as in factories but as in a man's industrious effortsMeet Moist von Lipwick No his parents really didn't think it through when naming him He is up to no good cheating people out of money though always without using any form of violence and he is about to pay the price at the beginning of this book Because Lord Vetinari has ordered his death So he's hanged until an inch of his life literallyI really love the PatricianAfterwards he has an audience with Vetinari where he is voluntold to be the next Postmaster of Ankh Morpork You see the industry there is that word again that has formed around the Clacks towers is getting out of hand the moguls becoming almost unruly which is something the Patrician certainly cannot stand However previous attempts at rein

    Hardcover ¶ Going Postal ePUB º going epub, postal ebok, Going Postal KindleThis book was an excellent surprise; I love the Discworld series but was getting tired of seeing the same characters again and again in every book But this book introduces an entirely new and refreshing cast of characters I particularly liked the main character and felt he was very well developed Pratchett's books are funny precisely because he has a very firm grasp of human nature His best work feels surprisingly profound even though you're also laughing so hard you're afraid you might break a rib In some of the later novels I was getting of a reused joke feeling and while it was still pretty funny all the depth was gone In this novel it's back and I would rank Going Postal pretty high among the Discworld novelsHighly recommended especially to Pratchett fans who think Discworld has gotten a little stale

    Hardcover ¶ Going Postal ePUB º going epub, postal ebok, Going Postal KindleThis was really surprising actually Perhaps it shouldn't have been given how many people whose opinions I respect are Pratchett fans but I haven't read a fantasy novel since giving up on Robert Jordan's painstakingly prolonged The Wheel of Time somewhere in book 5 I think long before college Actually I suppose I read a few of the Harry Potters in the interim but in some ways that felt like keeping up with pop culture than reading actual fantasyIn any event Going Postal was purely a pleasure 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 But whereas Adams' plotlines can be meandering and perhaps secondary to his constant seeking of the absurd Pratchett's were elaborately coiled well paced and compelling and his characters amusing and strange as they often were had a certain sincerity that kept me intereste
