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.Performed by Stephen Briggs

Our customer reviews

The recording is the marvellous one by Stephen Briggs and is therefore enjoyable in every particular except that involving Harper Collins. The packaging and disc quality are abysmal and were in no way damaged in the post. The packaging style makes it very easy for discs to fall out and become damaged, although some of my 11 discs came pre-scratched. The quality of the discs themselves is poor. My 1 cd player is not very good so I use my computer instead. There is either an inconsistent security coding or the discs are rubbish because the discs could be read apparently at random by my drive and, having been uploaded to mp3 so I could listen to the whole disc in one sitting, some of the recordings were very, very patchy. I was looking for an alternative to the expense of Isis but this is no good and as I loathe the opening credits of Audible (the nasal american horror does not please when I am craving the soft tones of Stephen Briggs), I shall be purchasing another, better quality copy of this recording from them. The services of the Bookdepository are wonderful as always. Harper Collins should have put a bit more money into their production. The reading is great and deserves a better vehicle.show more
