How can Pratchett, after 28 previous Discworld novels, craft a story so good that I sometimes find myself listening to the words, and forgetting to listen to the story? His abilities with the English language and satire are so rare as to be once-in-a-century events.
I've never encountered Terry Pratchett's work before, though folks have been raving about him for years. I found Stephen Brigg's amazing ability to capture each character's voice with precision and flair made the listening a pleasure.
I'd highly recommend both the book and this audio version.
Terry Pratchett has done it again! This is one of his very best. I would recommend this as highly as Guards! Guards! (currently unavailable on audible.com). I hope Audible and ISIS can resolve their differences soon and restore all of Terry's novels.
This is the fifth discworld book I've listened to, and, so far, this is the best. They've all been extremely clever and humorous, but Going Postal is the first that made me laugh out loud constantly.
Highly recommended for anyone familiar with discworld, but I wouldn't start my journey through Pratchett's alternative universe here. Also, Going Postal is the perfect book to come after Monstrous Regiment.
Fantastic story with some familiar faces. Longer than many in the series but not plodding so. If you enjoy other books in the series, this is at the top of the list. It also stands alone, perhaps more so than many. The reading is well done with quite a variety of consistent accents. Not all of them wowed me, but they did the job. The recording did justice to the text.
If you want people to review the books, why do you force limitations on them.
I recommend the book, especially to my fellow Postal Service employees. Teeheehee
I've had yet to find a Terry Pratchett book that I like better than "Monstrous Regiment." But this one comes the closest. A wonderful story of a conman who finds purpose. Thoroughly enjoyed all characters. And a top notch voice artist who brings it all to life.
I'm just a pixelated guy.
This was my first time with Terry Pratchett. When he passed away, Brandon Sanderson wrote a blog entry about him and recommended a few books for getting hooked.
I was amazed at the incredible characters that lived in this story. The humor is very clever. I humbly submit my application to be a Terry Pratchett fan.
