Glo m of Ni t

I just finished the latest Discworld outing, Going Postal. It's definitely one of the better ones, a wry take on City types as Ankh Morpork has its version of the Internet boom. The clacks, a system of communication by semaphor that has played minor parts in previous books, takes centre stage here, complete with obssessive techies and even hackers. No, really. I also enjoyed the return of the golems, and even though they have overcome the tragedy that befell them in Feet of Clay, they remain tinged with melancholy. And Vetinari is in top form as always. Highly recommended.
