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.
