Publisher's Summary

It's an offer you can't refuse. Who would not wish to be the man in charge of Ankh-Morpork's Royal Mint and the bank next door? It's a job for life. But, as former con-man Moist von Lipwig is learning, the life is not necessarily for long. The Chief Cashier is almost certainly a vampire. There's something nameless in the cellar (and the cellar itself is pretty nameless), and it turns out that the Royal Mintruns at a loss. A 300-year-old wizard is after his girlfriend, and he's about to be exposed as a fraud, but the Assassins Guild might get to him first. In fact, lots of people want him dead. Oh...and every day he has to take the Chairman for walkies. Everywhere he looks, he's making enemies. What he should be doing is...Making Money!

Great fun

Going Postal was the first Pratchett book I read/listened to, and having found it laugh out loud funny was keen to listen to the follow-up 'Making Money'. It has not disappointed and I am currently listening to it for a third time. While new to the cast of Pratchett characters, Moist Von Lipwig & Adorabelle Dearheart have quickly become some of my favourites (although they can't displace Vimes or Granny Weatherwax or Sgt Colon or Lord Vetinari...). I just wish Mr Groat & his sulphurous trousers had made a reappearance, however, I digress. Terry Pratchett's way with words is marvellous as are his descriptions of characters & situations. While on the surface he always tells an entertaining, slightly over-the-top story, there is always something deep & meaningful to think about - I love this kind of challenge. The sound quality is excellent as is the narration by Stephen Briggs. Highly recommended - but don't try it if you take yourself too seriously.

Utterly hysterical

From the laconic Ms Dearheart to Gladys the Golem via the incomparable Igor - all the characters are perfectly realised - could any author have been better served by a reader. My first Pratchett... enabled me to face an interminable flight delay with equanimity
