Terry Pratchett: Making Money

Image via Wikipedia
I have just finished Making Money by Terry Pratchett. As usual, a great read but not as entertaining as the previous book about Moist von Lipwig, "Going Postal". As one reviewer at Amazon writes:

But for a Discworld novel, "Making Money" lacks Pratchett's usual shoot-from-the-hip-and-mouth-and-other-body-parts originality. Maybe Moist von Lipwig, former Postmaster General and current trouble-shooter at the Royal Mint, is too slight a character to have the weight of two Discworld novels resting on his shoulders. Maybe his antics at the Mint are too similar to his antics at the Post Office.

But then again, I always have very high expectations on a Pratchett book. I have already started on next book, Wintersmith.
