I'm really beginning to enjoy Moist Von Lipwig as a character. This is a totally hilarious sequel to Going Postal, and I'm now curious what Pratchett is going to focus on for the next book: will it be the obvious subject of death and taxes? Will it involve the Clacks and the golems, or will it follow up on the hints re: underground public transit?

I was just saying a couple of weeks ago that I needed another book about Moist. He is SO over the top! Anyway, I am going to love every minute of the minty fresh puns. I can't wait to see the author tonight.

"Staff Pick" by ,

Making Money, the latest from Terry Pratchett, is now my favorite Discworld novel. It is funny, engaging, and satirical. Follow Moist von Lipwig, reformed con man, as he tries to drag the banking system into the Century of the Anchovy (the twenty-first century to you and me).

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Reprieved confidence trickster Moist von Lipwig, who reorganized the Ankh-Morpork Post Office in 2004's Going Postal, turns his attention to the Royal Mint in this splendid Discworld adventure. It seems that the aristocratic families who run the mint are running it into the ground, and benevolent despot Lord Vetinari thinks Moist can do better. Despite his fondness for money, Moist doesn't want the job, but since he has recently become the guardian of the mint's majority shareholder (an elderly terrier) and snubbing Vetinari's offer would activate an Assassins Guild contract, he reluctantly accepts. Pratchett throws in a mad scientist with a working economic model, disappearing gold reserves and an army of golems, once more using the Disc as an educational and entertaining mirror of human squabbles and flaws" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "After all these years, Discworld remains one of popular fiction's most reliably demented venues. Like the best of its predecessors, Making Money balances satire, knockabout farce and close observation of human — and non-human — foibles with impressive dexterity and deceptive ease. The result is another ingenious entertainment from the preeminent comic fantasist of our time."
"Review" by , "Lipwig is a brilliant scalawag of a hero, and Pratchett's taste for dry one-liners remains prodigious. Far from Pratchett's best, but entertaining nonetheless."
"Review" by , "[S]mart, funny, and a thoroughly entertaining read."
"Review" by , "Moist von Lipwig seems destined to join the permanent rogue's gallery of unforgettable characters who have entertained readers through 31 adventures."
"Synopsis" by , The revered international writer — one of the more significant contemporary English satirists (Publishers Weekly) — delivers another brilliantly clever Discworld novel filled with the trademark insight and humor readers the world over have come to expect.
