Publisher's Summary

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. Worst of all, it means taking on the gargantuan, money-hungry Grand Trunk clacks communication monopoly and its bloodthirsty piratical head, Mr. Reacher Gilt.

But it says on the building 'Neither Rain Nor Snow Nor Glo m Of Ni t'...Inspiring words (admittedly, some of the bronze letters have been stolen), and for once in his wretched life Moist is going to fight. And if the bold and impossible are what's called for, he'll do it; to move the mail, continue breathing, get the girl, and deliver that invaluable commodity that everyone requires: hope.

What the Critics Say

  • Audie Award Finalist, Fiction (unabridged), 2005

"Thanks to the timely subject matter and Pratchett's effervescent wit, this 29th Discworld novel may capture more of the American audience he deserves." (Publishers Weekly)
"Instead of revisiting old characters, Pratchett again takes on the task of further rounding out his already beautifully imagined Discworld, doing it with his usual blending of good laughs and unexpected depths." (Booklist)

    "A good entry point"

    One of Pratchett 's most intriguing characters in a stand-alone book. Recommended as an introduction to the Discworld.

    "Exquisite"

    This audiobook is a great rendition of Terry Pratchett's work. As to the story itself, it is one of those you will keep on listening to for years to come....

    "The best!"

    One of the best book that have been written since the invention of books. Terry Pratchett was truly a genius with the written word and will be sorely missed in the literary world... If you love fantasy and witty writing this book is the perfect blend of both.

    "Perhaps the best from the Disc"

    Fantastic story with some familiar faces. Longer than many in the series but not plodding so. If you enjoy other books in the series, this is at the top of the list. It also stands alone, perhaps more so than many. The reading is well done with quite a variety of consistent accents. Not all of them wowed me, but they did the job. The recording did justice to the text.

    "Very interesting and insightful book."

    If you want people to review the books, why do you force limitations on them.

    I recommend the book, especially to my fellow Postal Service employees. Teeheehee
