Making Money (Pratchett Book Review)

Ah, yes, another in the beloved Discworld series, and I’ve just finished it — Terry Pratchett’s latest adventure. This one features Moist, Vetinari, and cameos by some of the Guards. It’s a direct follow-on to Going Postal. I really liked Going Postal. And I liked this one too.

However if you’re looking for Terry’s normal bell-laugh bludgeoning you will be disappointed. While funny in spots, very funny to be exact, mostly it’s a relatively serious though comical take on running a Mint.

Personally, I like Vetinari remaining mysterious, but we learn quite a bit about him in this novel. And we learn more about Moist and, well, I won’t spoil it. We meet Mr. Bent and if he’s gone missing you can always get Bent 🙂

There’s also a new family, the Lavishes, who I hope make a return appearance. They are horribly dysfunctional and could be right out of the old soaps Dallas or Dynasty.

I could go on about this book, but I try to be spoiler free. I will give it very high marks, and a full refund in Ankh-Porkian dollars to anyone who doesn’t agree*.
