Making MoneyBook - 2007
It's an offer you can't refuse.
Who would not to 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), it turns out that the Royal Mintruns at a loss. A 300 year old wizard is after his girlfriend, he's about to be exposed as a fraud, but the Assassins Guild might get him first. In fact lot 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 !

SummaryAdd a Summary
Making Money features the usual, revolving cast of absurd characters and witty observations of our society. Postmaster General Moist von Lipwig, is forced to take responsibility for the Royal Bank of Ankh-Morpork, when Topsy Lavish, widow of the former Director, dies. She has left the controlling block of shares to Mr. Fusspot, her small dog, and appointed von Lipwig as the dog's guardian. As running the Post Office was getting predictable, Moist thinks he might enjoy the challenge and decides to introduce paper money. Except the rest of the Lavish family want their bank back and all the gold has disappeared from the vault.
Sir Terry Pratchett's absurd fantasy world has been described as combining the best of JRR Tolkien and PG Wodehouse.
