Going Postal | Terry Pratchett

Suddenly, condemned arch-swindler Moist von Lipwig found himself with a noose around his neck and dropping through a trapdoor into ... a government job?By all rights, Moist should be meeting his maker rather than being offered a position as Postmaster by Lord Vetinari, supreme ruler of Ankh-Morpork. Getting the moribund Postal Service up and running again, however, may prove an impossible task, what with literally mountains of decades-old undelivered mail clogging every nook and cranny of the broken-down post office. Worse still, Moist could swear the mail is talking to him. Worst of all, it means taking on the gargantuan, greedy Grand Trunk clacks communication monopoly and its bloodthirsty piratical headman. But if the bold and undoable are what's called for, Moist's the man for the job -- to move the mail, continue breathing, get the girl, and specially deliver that invaluable commodity that every being, human or otherwise, requires: hope.

I know I recently reread Snuff and Thud!, but honestly THIS is currently in contention for my favourite Discworld book. It's so wonderful to reread! Like an adventure that doesn't require a road trip, the sneaky thinking, the big ideas, the almost accidentally redemptive quality, the darkly and slyly and then broadly humourous, the smidgen of the fantastical that doesn't overwhelm with world building, that is basically just enchanting background,

Robotswithpersonality 2/3 but somehow how it all ends up being an open acknowledgement of a cynical worldview, of the unethical elements in a corrupt city, while also satisfying the faith of hope through people who choose to help others. Has a few touching/dark moments, but the overall feeling is not just fun, but triumphant. Pratchett's magic. 🥹 5mo
Robotswithpersonality 3/3 I will definitely be rereading the other Moist von Lipwig books (Making Money, Raising Steam) next. 😁

According to my excel sheet there are still some people who have not posted that they sent their boxes out. I may have missed your post. If I did not like or comment on that post, comment below. If you haven't sent your package out yet you are living on the edge (you are welcome for Aerosmith living in your head right now). Post when you do send it out. And Harpy IS judging you. She judged me when I sent mine out too.

This was my third Discworld novel and it cemented my love for Pratchett. This one works well as a stand alone. In it, con man Moist von Lipwig is saved from hanging by Lord Ventenari and subjected to an even worse punishment: he is tasked with bringing the moribund Ankh-Morpork post office back to life. Throw in Golem‘s rights, a little romance, and a lot of humor and voila! Pratchett deftly skewers corporate greed and much more.

#12Booksof2022

Vansa I LOVED this book.Practically reads as historical fiction for how the postal system is set up. 1y
vivastory Moist von Lippert. What a name! 1y
Ruthiella @Vansa I loved how pin collecting was a thing until stamps took it over. 😆 Let‘s face it, I loved everything about this book. 1y

Ruthiella @vivastory Oops! It‘s actually von LIPWIG. I corrected it. If that name doesn‘t make you at least crack a smile, his humor might not be for you. 😂 (edited) 1y
