Excellent book - funny funny funny! Lord Vetinari gets it in his head to revive the Ankh-Morpork Central Post Office, and picks a most unlikely character to do the work for him. But can the post office really compete in the age of the clacks? Read and find out!

Although this is a DiscWorld novel, it is not part of any of the DiscWorld sub-series, and can be read and enjoyed even by people not familiar with the series (it was my first DiscWorld book).

Book arrived via USPS safe and sound. I can't wait to read this one - being a ex-postal worker I am going to really have a laugh. I can't wait to compare the USPS to the Moribund Postal Service.

Enjoyable book. Not one of my favorite Pratchett books. I only laughed out loud once, and I do believe it was because of a Postal joke. I did enjoy reading this - Pratchett has to believe that you have to laugh at yourself in order to avoid living life tooo seriously. I did work for the United States Postal Service for a few years and the Postal jokes were all too real. But, I'm also very proud and have a great appreciation for the USPS, so maybe I didn't relate to all the jokes. But, I do agree stamp collectors can be over the top - sometimes. Definitely one I would recommend to read.

It is currently in the USPS mail stream and on it's way to Norway. I hope it makes it. ;-)

Really looking forward to this one:) Will be my first discworld novel. Only read one Pratchett-book before (Good Omens), and I didn`t like it that much. I hope this one is better...
Thanx for letting me read it!
