The Postman

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

This is the story of a lie that became the most powerful kind of truth.  A timeless novel as urgently compelling as War Day or Alas, Babylon, David Brin's The Postman is the dramatically moving saga of a man who rekindled the spirit of America through the power of a dream, from a modern master of science fiction.

He was a survivor--a wanderer who traded tales for food and shelter in the dark and savage aftermath of a devastating war.  Fate touches him one chill winter's day when he borrows the jacket of a long-dead postal worker to protect himself from the cold.  The old, worn uniform still has power as a symbol of hope, and with it he begins to weave his greatest tale, of a nation on the road to recovery.

From the Paperback edition.

Customer Reviews

The Postman is Brin's best

A excellent plot and characters that you can identify with make this "After the great disaster" book worthwhile. However, the movie is as bad as the book is good.

The Postman

A great story, well paced with just enough characters.
Perhaps a view of an unwanted future.

Hope In an Apocalyptic Future

A biting tale of a future that we really don't want, but might be heading for.
