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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”


  • “Terry Prachett seems constitutionally unable to write a page without a least a twitch of the grin muscles…But the notions Pratchett plays with are nae so narrow or nae so silly as your ordinary British farce. Seriously.”

    San Diego Union-Tribune

  • Locus Award
  • Audio Publisher’s Association “Audie” Award

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Dave | 2/20/2014

    " Terry Pratchett has never disappointed me with his convoluted plots filled with various cultural and literary allusions, wordplay and fascinating characters. This story is another delightful romp and a commentary on human nature that is mostly upbeat. Mingles suspense, intrigue, morality fable, fantasy and comedy to yield a genre bending tale of personal redemption. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Andre | 2/11/2014

    " Terry Pratchett goes with a new main character in the ongoing universe of Discworld. Another masterpiece. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Philip | 2/5/2014

    " This was my first Terry Pratchett book and I really enjoyed it. I'd heard Pratchett's name around a bit and wanted to try him out. I had no idea what his books were like and am pleasantly surprised I liked this so much. It was quite funny and entertaining. The style of humor is not usually to my liking, but I stuck with it and am glad I did so. "

    " A typical Discword novel that is both fascinating and amusing at the same time. The whimsy of the postal service and all its little nuances made this a very enjoyable read. "
