Absolutely my favorite Terry Pratchett yet, he just keeps getting better. Of course, I say that about most of his books... Could there be an unlikelier hero than Moist Von Lupwig? Yet hero he is, and you’ll find yourself cheering him on long before the book’s end, despite his incredibly yucky name. If you want to laugh out loud, smirk quietly to yourself, and even, gasp! have your thoughts provoked once in awhile, while society as we know it is deliciously skewered in the crazy alternative universe of Discworld, just pick up a Terry Pratchett book and prepare to have fun.

Hilarious take on government organizations and how people with lots of difference can work together.

Conman Lipwig Von Moist has been hung. But an angel, in the form of the terrifying tyrant Vetenari has given him his life back. He has a simple job for Moist to do- revitalize the flagging, and sagging, postal system. Moist must pull off the biggest con of his literal life. But there are people looking to disrupt what he wants to do. Can a miracle save his life? Terry Pratchett is in high form in another book in the Discworld Universe. A great read, and a fun time.
