Book review: Going Postal (Discworld)

Going Postal – Sir Terry Pratchett

(Note: I read this book in 2009, and this is a repost of a review I did then in Visual Bookshelf on my Facebook)

This was my first Terry Pratchett book so I can’t compare it to the others. I really loved his way with words. Terry uses the English language to it’s full use to bring hilarious sentences to life. The story of Moist Von Lipwig is extremely entertaining as he goes from con-artist to entrepreneur, and the wonderful similarities. Terry has some funny insights, and critiques, to society and business and portrays it wonderfully in this book. The characters are entertaining in themselves and it’s hard not to sit there giggling while reading what they say and do.

Conclusion: Read it.
