9780061161650: Making Money (Discworld Novels)

'Whoever said you can't fool an honest man wasn't one'

The banks are facing a crisis, and this time it's too serious even for the old boys' club to sort it out - this time, they've sunk to government intervention. But opening the vaults to public scrutiny brings a whole host of problems for those at the top: people want to know where the money's gone, they want loans, reasonable interest rates and much much worse - accountability. The fortress of high finance is crumbling, and it may be time for a change of management - before it's too late.

Review:

"Terry Pratchett is a comic genius" ( Daily Express)

"If you've never read Discworld, then perhaps you're unaware that what started out as a very funny fantasy spoof quickly became the finest satirical series running. It has dealt with - among many other topics - racism, sexism, journalism, death, war, the army, the Inquisition, the ambiguous nature of good and evil, and the uncomfortable power of narrative, all in novels that are smart, hilarious and humane. Come to think of it, if you've never read a Discworld novel, what's the matter with you?" ( Guardian)

"Although Terry Pratchett's comic novels are set in the imaginary Discworld, do not assume that they are divorced from contemporary concerns. His latest is almost spookily relevant... As bright and shiny as a newly minted coin; clever, engaging and laugh-out-loud funny" ( The Times)

"Remarkably topical timing, concerning as it does major wobbles in the financial system brought about by unscrupulous and idiotic banking practices... Most writing on the economy is either opaque or depressing; this is funny" ( Irish Examiner)

"Along the way Pratchett shines as he mocks modern society whilst taking us on a merry chase inside the pages. As with all his novels, Making Money is very readable and the constant edge of gentle sardonicism rarely grates" ( Daily Express)

Book Description:

Pratchett takes on the bankers and the financial system in the thirty-sixth Discworld novel.
