      A very interesting and well written book. Rhoda D'Ettore has the ability to keep me entertained, and educated, both at the same time. I really liked this book, especially this part {God! I know the world is coming to an end now. There is talk that they will give you ladies the vote in the U.S as well. What Perhaps you should remember, for every man with great power and deportment, there is a woman who created him, and raised him to be that way. Just you keep that in mind. If a woman can raise a [...]

      This is "Two Books in One", and the two books are completely different. The flow is good, there are no grammatical errors, and the characters are vibrant. The two books are completely different from each other, as the first is a "true" and humours account of what it is like to be a US Postal Worker. The second book I read as a short story on Smashwords, but the author has continued the short story into a very well written and entertaining book. There were quite a few surprises that made me say, [...]

      I first decided to read this book out of curiosity of the cover and the two different titles listed there, probably not the best of reasons I know but what a little gem it turned out to be. Here you get two very different stories for the price of one, the first being a series of side splitting snapshots and anecdotes of the author’s time working in the US postal service, and in the second story, The Creek, the reader is treated to a delightful family and local history of stories from in and ar [...]

      United States Postal Service worker (USPS). What a diverse & cultural group of men/woman with of course their own unique personality. My Grandpa was 1, the fun times I had as a child going around his at the time huge route, no vehicles back then. And then there is the environmental issues they endure 6 days a week. As well as the mean dogs or disgruntled PPL on their mail route. I have lots of friends I played ball with that are postal workers. I’m at awe how great a shape they stay in. Th [...]

      I received this book as part of Potluck review. Loved that I got two stories in one!! at first I wasn't sure about a book focused on the post office but it was great!!! Loved all the personalities and relatable characters. Just a fun read. The Creek took me by surprise. I loved how it all wove together. Such a good story. I am looking forward to reading her other stories.

      Most books I can say fairly quickly say why I liked reading them. These two shorts, particularly the first, a memoir about working at the US post office, took me a little longer.The postal short itself is like a collection of shorts or vignettes. The passage of each brought out a growing collection of eclectic characters that surprised and, initially, befuddled the narrator.Reading each event's description and dialog exchange, all occurring at a huge mail processing center, I can recognize and e [...]

      Goin' Postal is an interesting collection of creative-nonfiction short stories about the author’s life working for the United States Postal Service. The stories are hilarious, serious, scary, heartbreaking, and do a great job of depicting what life is like working anywhere with a tight knit group of people. I’ve only worked in four places in my life, and all of those places felt like this. We had our in-house squabbles, our deaths, our births, our disasters, our nights away from the job, and [...]

      Goin' Postal-HILARIOUS. I've been up all night reading this book because I could not put it down. I cannot think of many other books that made me laugh out loud but this one did. Of course it also makes me appreciate those who work in certain settings, but mostly - it made me laugh. If you need a break from life, some cheering up, or just a fun read - get this!This is also the third book by D'Ettore that I've read and been unable to put down; if you haven't read her: you should.The Creek -Anothe [...]

      Goin’ Postal & The Creek. 2 Books in 1! 4.5 Stars.Because this was two completely different books, I’m going to review them separately.Goin’ Postal. 4 Stars.This was a great, light read that often had me chuckling aloud. The unique writing style made me feel like I was with friends, drinking and sharing funny work anecdotes instead of reading an actual novel. I loved that about it, but it also meant that there was no real point to the story as a whole. It was very entertaining, but tha [...]

      I do like the fact that this author has put together two short books and given us, the reader value for money. On the face of it they are not related but after reading it you get a sense of being presented with a very American portrait. A very warm and insightful portrait by someone who loves her country and it’s diverse people. In Goin’ Postal she relates some of the stories (in part fictionalised to protect identities I’m sure) she experienced while working for the institution that is th [...]

      Interesting read. When Jessica's aunt Gertrude gets here to try for a job at the U.S. Postal Service, Jessica's life is changed forever. The reader gets a behind the scenes look at the happenings at a post office. Yes, a lot of the crazy stories are here, but the reader also gets an in depth look at what actually occurs while you are waiting for your mail. I found the stories hilarious, sad and some that happen no matter where you work. Life is life after all and the author did a great job bring [...]
