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 Reviews


"'A satirist of enormous talent' THE TIMES."
"'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 *
"'With all the puns, strange names and quick-fire jokes about captive letters demanding to be delivered, it's easy to miss how cross with injustice Pratchett can be. This darkness and concrete morality sets his work apart from imitators of his English Absurd school of comic fantasy'" * Guardian *
"Going Postal again does justice to the author's peculiar vision. The weirdness of Discworld is appropiately captured in a tale of love and redemption which blends satire, humour and drama" * The Daily Telegraph *
