Making Money

By Terry Pratchett
I’m a huge fan of Pratchett’s to begin with, so it’s probably no surprise that I really enjoyed this book. It has a few things that seem a wee bit off, as though Pterry is picking the low-hanging fruit rather than reaching for the better, higher stuff (a recurring bit about a dog playing with a sex toy got a little old for me, for example), but I love Moist von Lipwig and I absolutely adore Vetinari and both have big parts in the book, so I was happy.
This is basically a sequel to Going Postal, but you don’t have to have read that to get what’s going on. Semi-reformed conman Moist is hemmed in until he takes over the Royal Bank of Ankh-Morpork, and he completely revolutionizes the banking system. Good stuff. I know only a wee bit about how banking actually works, but I understood what was going on and enjoyed the read.
Book 13 in 2008.

One Response to Making Money

    Excellent. I’m currently reading Going Postal right now and am thoroughly enjoying it – especially Moist. Making Money is on my to read list. I didn’t realize that it was a sequel to Going Postal. It’s good to know that Pratchett keeps up with the wonderful story telling that I love in his novels. Thanks for the review.
