Publisher's Summary

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.

Great as an audiobook

Warning - don't listen to this book whilst driving in peak hour traffic, it's so funny you can't concentrate on the driving! The combination of Terry Prachett as author and Stephen Briggs as narrator is the best. Highly recommended.

Probably one of the best Discworld novels

I thoroughly enjoyed Going Postal. Postmaster Moist Von Lupwig is a brilliantly thought out character (or should I say Mr. Spangler).

The Patrician of Ankh-Morpork, decides to put a fraudster, embezzler and thief in charge of the Royal Post Office. He must resurrect the white elephant from the ashes. What follows is typical Terry-Pratchett-wiz(z)ardry.

I also enjoyed Stephen Briggs' performance. He made the characters come live and made you wish you were there! Highly recommended!!!
