    The Ankh-Morpork Post Office is running like...well, not at all like a government office. The mail is delivered promptly. Postmaster General Moist von Lipwig, former arch-swindler and confidence man, has exceeded all expectations - including his own. So it's somewhat disconcerting when Lord Vetinari summons Moist to the palace and asks, "Tell me, Mr. Lipwig, would you like to make some real money?"

    Jason says: "Another gem."

    Story

    This was a great story. It is technically a sequel of Going Postal. I haven't read (or listened) to it but I have seen the made for TV version which was good. It helps to know what happened in the past novel, but I imagine you could jump right in if you wanted to. It always amazes me how Terry Pratchett takes a fairly boring topic (moving to paper currency) and makes an interesting story out of it. However, the stand out thing for me was the great narration. Stephen Briggs managed to really personalize all of his characters. It was always really easy to tell who was talking. He even did a good job with the female voices...they weren't pretty but they were noticeably women.

    In financial straits and on a sure path to spinsterhood, Venetia Milton thought her stay at the remote, ramshackle Arcane House, far from society's prying eyes, would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engineer her own ravishment. She was there to photograph the relics and artifacts collected by a highly secretive organization, founded two centuries earlier by an eccentric alchemist.

    Story

    This was a big fat "meh". I have read other books by this author in her various pseudonyms, but has to be the bottom of her barrel. I don't mind the fact that it was predictable and formulaic...all her books follow the same basic steps. But this one was incredibly boring. People spent so much time talking about boring stupid things that the reader (or listener) already figured out. Venetia and her family spent a good 10 to 15 minutes considering what to do when her "husband" showed up and she assumed he was a blackmailer. I respect the fact that the author wants to establish that she is an intelligent and self possessed woman, but ^@%@# we already know who it is!!! Stop harping on it! This is just one example of many super boring scenes you will sign up for if you get this book. I'm not saying you won't like it, but I didn't. I also didn't like the narrator very much.

    In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about 60 years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds....

    Story

    This was a great book that I thoroughly enjoyed. I have played MMORPGs and RPGs in the past so it was pretty funny and curiously disconcerting to see the 'adventurer' from an NPCs perspective. The characters' tone of voice makes even the most bizarre situation funny. I was doubly impressed when I came back here and noticed that the writer was also the narrator. He did an excellent job and it is cool knowing that you are hearing all of the emphasis that was intended. I would listen to him narrate other stories for sure.
