Going Postal - No not me, the book

I’ve been a Terry Pratchett fan ever since I bought a copy of “The colour of magic”, he was a master of constant jokes, diverse and interesting characters mixed together in a fantasy world which had enough commonalities with our own to add an extra twist to the tale.

If one thing stands out from that sentence it should be the word ‘was’, while the quality of the recent stories (Monstrous Regiment, Night Watch) is, if anything, better than the earlier books the newer books including Going Postal are very quiet on the humour front.

The last comment I’ll make on this reasonable read is the inclusion of the clacks ‘hackers’. I’m sorry but this part of the story is way over played in every review I’ve read and, IMHO reads like an unimaginative stereotype hastily added.
