It does not get any better then this. Terry has got it right! I was looking for a writer that had the same style as Douglas Adams and Terry has far exceeded my expectations! Going postal is a very funny book. Very easy and enjoyable listen. If I had to pick one thing bad about the book it would be that is was over to soon.
I have also just listened to another book by Terry Pratchett and I am now a true fan and will be buying more by this author.
The Narrator Stephen Briggs also does an outstanding job.
I highly recommend this book.
good but cut-off
He was very good
The ending... I guess it is a cliff hanger ending..
The book ended in the middle of the story.. It is a very good story so if you want to listen to it you will need to buy the second book Better than life.
If you loved this series then do NOT listen to this butcher job. Douglas Adams must be turning over in his grave.
I usually actually say what I felt was wrong with the book, but it is so bad I just don't know where to begin or how to say it.
I Will just leave it at this "PANIC"
I only listened to this book for about 4 minutes. The Narrator : Lynn Redgrave's voice is so irritating to me I had to stop. I really wanted to listen... I guess I will have to wait for the movie to come out on DVD.
This book was just ok If I had to do it agian I would skip it.
I liked it! It was a very good listen. The plot keeps you wondering what is going on and why? The characters are well developed. I do recommend this book. One word of caution. The F-bomb is dropped several times through out the story.. I started the audio book while my daughter was in the car with me and the first 3-4 words of the book are the f-bomb. Overall - Very good.
I have 8 other Disc World books and I am A big fan. This being said I am VERY DISAPOINTED! The Narator butchered this book beyond my point of listening. She will speak real softly forcing you to turn the volume up then do a messed up voice at 2-3 times the volume blowing up your speakers. Her charecter voices are pittiful at best. This is the first and hopefully the last time I have not finished a book.
I loved it! What a wonderful book. This is a must read/listen.
I have listened to 3 other Neil books Anansi Boys, Neverwhere and Stardust, All awesome! This book however is nothing but "F@#$ this", "F@#$ that" "I will F-N Kill you". The the F word is used way to often. I think that if you took the F word out of just the first hour of the book it would have only played for 30 min!! Way to much.. I don't mind books that use the F word but this book seems to use it for every 3rd word. Way to F-N much! Skip this book, Neil has way to many really good books.
