Going Postal is a fantasy novel by British writer Terry Pratchett, the 33rd book in his Discworld series, released in the United Kingdom on 25 September 2004. Unlike most of Pratchett's Discworld novels, Going Postal is divided into chapters, a feature previously seen only in Pratchett's children's books and the Science of Discworld series. These chapters begin with a synopsis of philosophical themes, in a similar manner to some Victorian novels and, notably, to Jules Verne stories.

Much to his mailman father's dismay, Steve Reeves is not mailman material, his girlfriend has just dumped him, his embarrassing career at BagelWorks is over, and his father, who had been steadily losing it for years, has just given him his first gun. A first novel. Original.

Going Postal is a story of a college grad, with a postal worker father, stuck in the dead-end merry-go-around work-cycle. A life far from perfect, but one in which the main character, Steve Reeves, in spite of a titanic-like sub-exisitence never gives into complete despair.

Reeves' take on everything would be: Life hands u your jaw, so be it, simply fit the teeth back in and go on, making jokes about toothpaste all along the way.

And when epic tour-de-force quasi-stage play novels take on this 'false high-toned greatness and richness', it's oh sooo ever nice to read a story like Going Postal.

Writer's gimmick, slacker pointlessness, meandering characters; all charges leveled against this novel. But those are easy surface whip lashes; this is a experienced novel - a daily record. It's one thing to impart one's experiences and to transform them upon another, but Jaramillo goes far beyond that...his book 'becomes' you.

I hate to divide Postal into a GenX vs. Baby Boomer tag, as the story can stand alone. But I see a direct line between half the readers rabidly, frantically loving this book and the other half tossing it off as world-owes-me-living whining. The steady drum beat
of the plot is underlining the story, with major diversions, which to some are cause for great alarm, but that's part of the charm of this book. Going Postal is real life, it's not nice little neat packages, save that for happily-ever-after fairy tales or bestseller novels.

To the Baby Boomer types who see only whining and yagging; wipe away preconceived notions, live thru the character, don't impart your conceptual framework upon the book.

Jaramillo's extended descriptions of various concepts and characters almost creates a whole new writer's coinage, call it Jaramilloism if u wish. Going Postal's laser-beams in on what many experience, but never can solidly articulate; wording the minor details to a angelic level.

The book is soooo much alive, I simply cannot grasp how this could have been lost on anyone, but then again as Going Postal so vividly befolds, life is not perfect

I read this book for the first time shortly after it came out. It is very well done, extremely funny & engaging. I can't believe it didn't "catch on" or that its author didn't explode on the literary scene--it and he are that good. Occasionally you read a book like this (another one for me would be Thom Jones of Pugilist at Rest and Sonny Liston Was a Friend of Mine fame) and you say to yourself, what ever happened to these guys? Is Jaramillo waiting in the wings with something new and cool waiting for us? Let's hope so. In the meantime there is Going Postal, which I highly recommend, especially now if you're an approaching forty-year-old dude like me and you enjoyed the 90s.

The frustrations of the young protagonist, Steve (a bright college graduate forced into, you guessed it, postal work) are timeless--and particularly timely in these (2009) economic times. I can only guess as to why this book isn't mentioned along with "Catcher in the Rye" and 'Confederacy of Dunces' as the sharpest, wryest, funniest alienated young protagonist novels of all time. I can't believe I hadn't heard of it until recently coming upon it. Maybe "going postal" is cliched and that put people off, even over a decade ago. Forget that. If you are looking for a few hours (and you will read it straight through) of the best and most insightful comedy possible, "Going Postal" is your book. And tell a literature professor.

I loved this book, some of the most imaginative and humorous stuff I have ever read. I am shocked so many people are dogging it. Yes, the story does slow up a bit towards the end, but the beginning and middle more than make up for it. And to the nutjob that denounced the book for encouraging workplace violence, get real! It is a story bout a hopeless, intelligent guy, that just cannot seem to find his way in life. It is "Catcher in the Rye," the post-college years.

Dude, I love it, love it, love it!!! This guy is insane! Stephan Jaramillo has a special skill called detail, all the way down to the platform shoes. The images are fun and the dialogue is fierce. My only question at the completion of this book was "what if the love doesn't work out? Is he going to pull a lil' O.J. with his Colt 45?" and "what happens to Callahan? Does he ever return?" Do you see what I see.....?

GOING POSTAL is clearly a very amusing book, and while the protagonist is clearly very close to (or over) the edge, his rantings are very believable, as are his collection of friends. The book reads incredibly quickly, and I definitely laughed out loud more than once. Not the greatest book I've ever read, but definitely worth picking up.
  • Painbrand
stephen jaramillo has created a highly realistic main character....he's got depth, he's got feelings...but really, he's just a normal guy. This book was very funny, it's an easy read, and a laid back story...while the ending wasnt that great, pretty quick and abrupt, the book itself is still worth reading.
Stephan Jaramillo has written a book that is hilarious yet tender. He accurately describes the insane drudgery of the standard youth of America minimum wage job market.
If you want to read another outstanding book, I recommend Youth in Revolt by C.D Payne
