Going, Going, Gone Postal

I've finished reading Going Postal by Terry Pratchett and I enjoyed it. Hurrah! It's the first book I've started and actually finished reading in quite a long time. We're talking a few years here...

As I noted before, it's quite politically oriented and fairly satirical but an ok read. Nowhere near as funny as any of his early books; in fact there wasn't a single moment I burst out laughing. His early books can do that though. Don't get me wrong, there's humour, and silly stuff, but not as much as I was expecting. It's all based in Discworld still and you get references to well-known entities from that universe but I don't think anyone would really suffer by coming to it devoid of any discworld knowledge.By the way, is that a capital D on discworld?

I'm back in the mood for reading more now, and looking back through the book list inside the cover there's a lot of Pratchett's I haven't read. I borrowed the early ones from my brother who happens to have all the earlier books, but I don't know if he has so many of the recent ones.
