A tale of love and revenge – and stamps.
Moist von Lipwig is a con artist, a fraud and a man faced with a difficult life choice: be hanged, or put Ankh-Morpork’s ailing postal service back on its feet. It’s a tough decision.
With the help of a golem who has been at the bottom of a hole in the ground for over two hundred years, a pin fanatic and Junior Postman Groat, he’s got to see that the mail gets through. Also, in taking on the evil chairman of the Grand Trunk Semaphore Company and his midnight assassin, unlike previous postmasters he’s got to stay alive! Getting a date with Adora Bell Dearheart would be nice, too.
‘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.
