I didn’t care as much for it, but it’s brimming with satire and some scenes are great.

The suite of characters is sizable and well developed, but never out of control so one always knows who cqrtas who. In that silence, Moist tried out a variety of responses, from “Pull the other one, it’s got bells on” to “That’s impossible”, and decided they all cqrtas stupid. Besides being a great entry into the Discworld mythos, this is also just a good book; Pratchett, getting better like a fine wine, spins a good yarn.

Not a romance series, but there are some love interests. My favorite supporting character is Mr. But this book introduces an entirely new and refreshing cast of characters. My Discworld-reading for the Humour Club has had its ups and downs. A good starting place: Ridiculous name aside, Moist von Lipwig’s reluctantly scrupulous con artist emphasis on ‘artist’, as his maneuvering definitely deserves such a word was exceedingly entertaining to follow.
Sir Terry Pratchett passed away on 12th March Terry Pratchett is in a category all his own.
Discworld is not a fluffy fantasy setting despite being extremely humorous. In any event, Going Postal was pur This was really surprising, actually. However, in Going Postal the characters are definitely not magical, but are awesome nevertheless. Moist von Lipwig is a con man of major proportions whose last fraud has come to haunt him, caught and about to hang he believes it is all over for him. There are some spin-off books that cross-over with the “City Watch” sub-series.
