Overview

Making Money (Discworld Series #36) by Terry Pratchett

Moist von Lipwig, condemned prisoner turned postal worker extraordinaire (see Pratchett's Going Postal) is back! Except this time he's been put in charge of a different branch of the government: he's responsible for overseeing the printing of Ankh-Morpork's first paper currency.

Filled with Pratchett's usual sharp wit, keen social commentary, and sagacious observations, Making Money is another highly anticipated volume in the internationally bestselling Discworld canon.

I am glad Terry Pratchett has written a sequel to "Going Postal". This book is filled with many laughs. If anyone who has finished reading this book already, be sure to read "Raising Steam", by Terry Pratchett. That book is filled more adventure and challenges for Moist Von Lipwig.

Making Money is number 36 in the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett.  Similar to the Piers Anthony Xanth series, the books in the series do not have to be read in order.  This book is a sort of sequel to another Discworld book called Going Postal.  It features one of Discworld most famous and favorite character, Moist Von Lipwig.  In Going Postal Lipwig saved the Post Office now it seems that the town of Ankh-Morpork’s bank is in trouble.  There is only so much one man can do but Moist thinks he is up for the job.  The question is does the town want him for the job.  I have only read 1 other book in this series which was the first book Moist Von Lipwig shows up, Going Postal.  I enjoyed the silliness of some the happenings.  For one the dog, Mr. Fusspot, was my favorite character.  Everytime Pratchett described the dog I always found a smile on my face.  My second favorite character was the Golem, Gladys, who showed up in Going Postal as well.  While Making Money was fun and sometimes silly.  I feel like Going Postal had much more silliness and frolicking fun.  It is not that it was boring but there was some of the story dealing with the character, Vetinari that I was not sure what was going on.   Even with it’s faults I still liked the book and it’s characters.  I can’t wait to read the most recent book (Snuff) with Ankh-Morpork’s returning characters.

Returning to the Discworld to follow the exploits of Moist von Lipwig for his second book (the first being Going Postal). Definitively worth the read.
