    War has come to Discworld...again. And, to no one's great surprise, the conflict centers around the small, insufferably arrogant, strictly fundamentalist duchy of Borogravia, which has long prided itself on its ability to beat up on its neighbors. This time, however, it's Borogravia that's getting its long-overdue comeuppance, which has left the country severely drained of young men.

    If you haven't read/heard Pratchett, do yourself a favor and get one. There are many to choose from, and if you like one you're in for a lot more fun.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    "1st five star rating I've ever given"

    Truly the best. If you don't read this, you're missing a great experience.

    Arch-swindler Moist von Lipwig never believed his crimes were hanging offenses, until he found himself with a noose around his neck, dropping through a trap door, and falling into...a government job? Getting the moribund Postal Service up and running again, however, may be an impossible task. Worse, the new Postmaster could swear the mail is talking to him.

    Robert W says: "Finally on AUDIBLE!!!"
    "Good Pratchett, Excellent Narration"
    Overall

    Pratchett is excellent fun. If you like Pratchett, then "Going Postal" is above average. If you don't know Pratchett, then find his best (not this one) and listen/read. I've listened to a few Pratchett audibles and love the narration. This one is no exception.

    English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. They can only write long, dull papers about it, while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memory.

    David says: "Hang in there!"
    "Too much hype"
    Overall

    1 word: Slow. Not too long, just too slow. It's not bad, but there are too many good books out there to waste your time with this one.
