Making Money: Discworld, Book 36 | [Terry Pratchett]

Making Money: Discworld, Book 36

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.

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

    "Brilliant Pratchett as ever"

    I really enjoyed this book, Terry Pratchett is so clever with his sideways glance at real life - writing his parallel tale in another world. Brilliant

    "Terry Pratchett - writer and now prophet..."

    How did he do it? Terry Pratchett spins another magical tale from the Diskworld, featuring the highly reformed conman Moist Von Lipwig, lashings of Lord Vetinari and the usual list of wastrels, liars and love interests, the latter in the form of a golem and the lovely Miss Dearheart, she of the never-extinguished cigarette. The theme of the book is a bank system which runs on belief and confidence, without which it will fail...does this sound somewhat topical? Terry Pratchett drives the narrative along with plenty comedy and action, and a huge accolade must go to Stephen Briggs. This man must have been born in Ankh Morpork, he sounds so comfortable with the place. His range of voices never fails to match the characters and he draws the scenes in the listener's mind in satisfying detail. In Moist, Terry Pratchett has created a wonderfully reluctant hero whose greatest asset is a huge barrowload of people skills; at times, he almost matches Vetinari, but of course, that is always an unwise thing to attempt. No reservations about this book; put on the headphones and wander the streets of Ankh Morpork and beyond. It is a beguiling journey.

    "Terry Pratchett magic"

    If you love Terry Pratchett and the disc world then you will definitely love this audible book. Catch up with some of your favourite disc world characters including the Golden suited postmaster general. This book is jam packed with great wit and a brilliant story. I loved the comical links to the modern day banking system. If you enjoyed Going Postal then this is definitely the Terry Pratchett book for you.

    "Wonderfull story, loved it"
    Where does Making Money rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Brilliant story, liked the narration think it added to the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Moist von Lipwig - main character. Just the style and charisma of the character is brilliant and isn't afraid to take a risk.


    What does Stephen Briggs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The voice acting is very good brings the story alive.

    "Pratchett Continues To Produce Enjoyable Stories"

    Terry Pratchett continues to produce beautiful stories allowing one to escape into the Discworld for hours at a time. With superb narration by Stephen Briggs (and others) these books are a fantastic way to escape the nowadays mostly frustrating world we live in providing an insight into another world where anything is almost possible one way or another. All sorts of things can happen and generally do on a daily basis making the Discworld a magical place to visit with interesting resolves to fairly common problems. I'm always looking forward to the next Discworld book.

    "fun"

    This is the second novel featuring con artist Moist von Lipwig, following where "Going postal" left. As usuall with the sharp humor of Prachett, you will not be dissapointed or bored though this book, it contains a female golem called Gladis, a randy ghost and a dog, chairman of a big bank, with an unusual toy. This is the first audio I head from Prachett's work, and I find the characterization and reading quite good. Please get it.

    Story
    "Ah.. Mr. Libvig"
    If you could sum up Making Money in three words, what would they be?

    Old languages, Con artist and a touch of magic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mr. Fuss Spot.


    What does Stephen Briggs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Stephen Briggs is far from my favorit story teller, but he is one of the better story tellers. I happend to like Nigel Planer better. But he has the time to read my favorite books whiled I work and do my duties at home.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I might say the last part where ouer willen wakes up in a ward for ppl that think they are Vetenary and he is as happy as he could ever be.


    Any additional comments?

    This dook is a brilliant follow up on Going Postal, Libvig is not my favorite character ore anything. But The Dick Worlds series is an absolute blast.

    As always the different voices bring the characters to life and point up nuances in what is said - or not said

    It would not make a suitable film

    "Average but still Discworld"

    Moist Von Lupwig is back! This time Patrician Havelock Vetenari has different plans for him. The city bank needs reform, and Von Lupwig is the man for the job. Unfortunately he refuses the immediate riches and a dog becomes the chairperson of the Royal Bank! But there is a catch that ensures that Von Lupwig cannot escape his newest adventure.

    New characters introduced are a special kind of gollum and prof. Hicks of the Department of Postmorten studies...
