    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.

    "Hilarious"
    Overall

    This book is fun and hilarious to listen to. Terry Pratchett writes a hysterical book about one of the most mundane subjects: the post office. Stephen Briggs does a fabulous job reading this book and captures the characters personalities quite well. I find myself sitting in my car once I have reached my destination just to listen to a "little bit" more. If you want to listen to a great book that is fun and interesting this is the book for you!

    Story
    (634)

    Former naval doctor Peter Crane is summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below on "Deep Storm", a stunningly advanced science-research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The top-secret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to an ancient mystery.

    "Scott Brick Not So Good In This"
    Overall

    I have been a big fan of Scott Brick (the narrator of this book) because I enjoyed all of the Shannara books he has narrated. But, I recently realized that even though someone is good at narrating in one genre, does not mean they will be good in others. There are many parts of the book where there should be a hint of excitement and/or nervousness which does not translate well with Scott Brick’s laid back, calm somewhat blas? style of narration. Everyone sounds the same from the military personnel to the average Joe off the street. There is no emotional change between characters which leaves one with a sense that everyone in the book is void of personality. I find the book very boring not because of the content, but more because of the person reading it. I have not finished the books as of yet, but I am almost tempted to buy it in hard copy and read it instead of wasting any more time listening.
