Publisher Description

'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.

Out of This World

All Terry Pratchett's DiscWorld books enfold you in sheer joy; every page has you smiling, every character reminds you of someone you know. Pratchett's subtle wit is pure delight. As soon as you finish one of his books you reach out frantically for another. I read them again and again, inevitably finding a new source of wonder each time.

Going Postal is one of my personal favourites, together with its sequel, Making Money. I read both before the film of Going Postal hit the big screens. The movie is great, especially with the cameo appearance in the final scene of Sir Terry himself, who evidently helped keep the filmmakers on track.

Nonetheless, the book is even better than the film. Aren't they always? In Going Postal the words come alive. Literally. You dive deeper into the story, revelling in the famous Pratchett footnotes and you emerge after reading it with a huge grin of wonder on your face, wanting more, regretting the canon is now complete.
