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.
Clever, well written, perfect balance of imagination and credibility
Perfect portrayal of each character
I love this novel, but Briggs's reading of Adorabelle Dearheart is a grating, monotone attempt at an Irish accent that makes listening to her dialogue insufferable.
I've read this book at least 5 times, but I'm so glad that I listened to it as well. The narration was superb! I laughed many times (esp liked the Igor) ... my only regret is that now the book is finished.
