Making Money

Postby Hegewych » Mon Jul 28, 2008 10:10 am

Just about to start reading this one.
I know its a bit late, but was in the middle of another book.
Find nice quiet spot and settle down for the afternoon.

I've only read it once so far. In my opinion Terry's books have to be read at least twice and even more! However, I've been working my way through the series for a discussion group on another forum and I don't get around to Making Money until October. We'll have to see if I cave in and read it again before then. :wink:

BTW - I'm currently reading Going Postal and have been working through the series for over two years. :shock:

I'm still waiting for the paperback edition of Making Money.

I've read it though. Twice. It's extremely good like all PTerry's books. I liked that Mrs. Dearheart featured a bit more it this one.

She's sooooo cool! :wink:

The paperback of MM has been out for a few weeks over here and was even on special offer at Tesco last time I looked.

Yeah I know... You get all the fun first! xP

It's not gonna be in bookstores here, so I had pre-ordered it on Amazon. Am now waiting to get my salary so I can actually buy it! xD

Making Money was very good. I think I'm in love with the Chairman. I couldn't get the image of him and his toy (being vibrated across the floor) out of my head for a long time after reading it!

We've had the paperback version of Making Money for quite a long time.. Few months at least. South Africa must be getting better. Woot

Controversial I know, but I didn't find this one anywhere near as good as Going Postal. It just seemed to be more of the same only a little weaker. I have only read it once though so when I get time I'll have another read-through and see what I think then.

I agree with you. I really didn't like Making Money very much on the first reading. I'm hoping I'll enjoy it more when I read it again though.

I don't remember 'Going Postal' very well .. Someone stole my copy (happens a lot.. I am currently wondering where my fifth copy of 'Guards! Guards!' has got to) but i thoroughly enjoyed 'Making Money'. I remember i preferred 'The Truth' to 'Going Postal' though, and am a little disappointed that Pratchett didn't carry on with that series.

Done! My copy of Making Money is on its way! I can't wait to read it again! I liked it a lot on the first read so I bet I'll like it even more now. ^__^

I'v just finished reading MM and i thought it was good I like that ms dearheart was in this one more as well. I agree that the truth was good and wish that terry would do more about them but they seem to pop up in alot of books now, mostly following Vimes around hehe
