I believe, Mullinax, that the Blockbuster world of explosive, easy endings has deprived us all of the necessary and refreshing subtlety that gives this novel life. However, in order to see true wit and subtlety, as used so deftly by Terrana, one must be more observant than a sack of potatoes.
that so many of us take for granted, and yet rely heavily upon-the postal service. The author takes you inside his world, and their world, and reveals the frustrations of a postal carrier, which is translatable to any thinking individual participating in the non-managerial American workforce. Instead of a woe-is-me tale, the author chooses a sarcastic, Dave Barryish tone that sets the
stage for the book. The language, though simple and without airs, reveals an intellect that is anything but. He pokes fun at the self-important supervisors, and points out the illogical and paradoxical ways of a large institution with subtlety and wit. If you are looking for a book that is smart,relatable, and funny, you have found it.
