Terry Pratchett is one of my most favorite authors. I have bought everything he has written(hardcopy, audio book, or both) and was excited to have a new book available. But Making Money was a disappointment - it felt like Pratchett used a formula to recycle Going Postal. Usually when he writes a new book about a character from a previous book, he moves the character forward with a very different story. That wasn't the case this time. sigh.
This book is still worth having, but it's definitely NOT the place to start reading Pratchett.
I decided I should listen to The Eyre Affair before any of the successive books, but didn't notice it was abridged. I HATE abridged books! So my review may be tinged by that...
Great fun - the concept of an alternate world where literature reigns. Some decent puns and a reasonably interesting plot. The reader did a good job reflecting the narrator, though she was a little weak on some of the other characters.
Some other reviewers commented that they didn't like the language. I generally don't mind when characters swear when angry or annoyed, but if a particular word is going to be used as a swear word, it just doesn't feel right for the same word to be casually accepted by other characters as a normal proper name. That's not clever, it's annoying!
