Going Postal?какви препятствия дъжд градушка кучета Взаимоспомагателното благотворително дружество на пощенските работници пагубния председател на компанията „Семафор на Гранд Пън“ и среднощния убиец И няма лесно да уговори Адора Бе. For the longest time Going Postal has been my best known unread book Having watched and rewatched the SkyOne TV adaptation I had sort of tacitly decided that actually reading the book was not high on my list of priorities Plus Charles Dance is the uintessential Lord Vetinari as far as I'm concerned Sorry GoT fans the Discworld was here long before youMoist von Lipwig has dedicated most of his life to perfecting the intricacies of con artistry but his unparalleled streak of luck is about to meet a rather definitive ending Or is it Lord Havelock Vetinari is in need of a new Post Master for Ankh Morpork's long deceased Post Office A truly impossible job even for Lipwig but our hero's had plenty of experience in slinking off Unfortunately for him the Patrician has had plenty of experience preventing said slinking offAnd since no reuest from Lord Vetinari ever comes with just one catch Lipwig soon realizes that any possible failure may have some truly fatal conseuences And that's not just due to Vetinari's retaliationSo with no other alternatives and a parole officer immune to any forms of bribery Lipwig decides to just fake his way through the Post Master job And against all odds our hero becomes an instant successSo how was the reading experience you may ask As predictable as I suspected but also not that much The generic idea remains of Lipwig managing to surround himself with some of the most capable people in order to achieve his goals especially when said people had no idea of their own capabilities Except for Ms Dearheart of course who should just be declared a Goddess so we can all bow down to her officially “What kind of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government Apart from say the average voter”“That was an important rule of any game always make it easy for people to give you money”“And you just hoped something would turn up What made you think it wouldIt always has The only way to get something to turn up when you need it is to need it to turn up” So which one is better Honestly I liked both versionsThe TV adaptation has turned Adora Dearheart into this absolutely kickass heroine who doesn't just command the Golem Trust but also dabbles in Clacks Tower experiments tames crazy horses and is generally up for saving the World any time and any whereThe book on the other hand gives you awesome bonus scenes like Moist getting inducted into the secret Postal Workers' cult Miss Macalariat the ferocious office manager of the Post Office intent on proper bathroom etiuette even when golems where involved and of course Grandad Lipwig's many teachings back in Uberwald the building blocks of Moist's survival strategiesAll I can suggest is not to rereadrewatch either so much as to be able to anticipate each and every twist and turn It'll take away from the excitement of discovering Lipwigs next crazy schemeScore 385 starsSurprisingly entertaining in spite of all my initial misgivingsOther books starring Moist von LipwigReview of book 2 Making MoneyReview of book 3 Raising Steam
