    Review of by (9781857989380) #books (

    I was pretty sure I knew how this book was going to end when I started it, but that didn’t stop it from breaking my heart.

    This is the book I would hand to someone who was new to Science Fiction. Beautiful, insightful, and incredibly powerful.

    Update (2020-02-26):

    I’m writing this long long after originally writing this sparse little review. Two years after reading this book, it continues to haunt me as one of the most emotionally powerful, affecting books I’ve ever read. I suspect if I read the last page or two, I’d start crying once again (after the original read I was sobbing uncontrollably). This book is truly remarkable.

    Who knew a book about starting up a post office could be so enjoyable! While not one of my favourite in the Discworld, Pratchett still cuts deep with his satire, taking hard shots at short-sighted corporations, ruthless financiers, and, randomly, naturopathy.
