About This Item

Corgi Books, Oct 2005. New edition. Mass Market Paperback. I've been reading the Discworld novels since about 1989, and I believe that Going Postal is the 33rd book in the series - and honestly there hasn't been a bad book in the lot, and in many ways Terry Pratchett improves as a writer with every book he releases. GOING POSTAL is in some ways a throw-back to his earlier books, being the first book for quite a while that's divided into chapters, and with more of the hilarious footnotes that were a favourite feature of his earlier books. However, it still maintains the deeper characterisation and depth of his more recent works, and the very strong story-telling. Pratchett's great gift is using his fantasy world to make wry satirical observations about our everyday world, and the nature of human existence and weakness - without being at all heavy going to read. A true British institution, and I look forward to many more Discworld books :)

Synopsis

Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he ‘doesn’t want to get a life, because it feels as though he’s trying to lead three already’. He was appointed OBE in 1998. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, The Bromeliad , is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, The Amazing Maurice And His Educated Rodents , was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal.
