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. ;)

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

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! ;)

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.

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!

Moist will be hitting the TV screens sometime next year as the Mob are making "Going Postal" their next offering for Sky.

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.

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

I would agree with Tony. You need to read Terry's books at least twice to really get the best out of them. I didnt enjoy Monstrous Regiment on the first reading, but on the second, I was surprised to find how good it was.

I am sure Anoia would help him in that case...again.

PS: well, Making Money is quite good...alas, not so good as Going Postal, but surely worth reading. My favourite character is Mr Bent, I consider him the best character of the book ;)

Ohmai! The last book I read..was indeed, Going Postal :) When I first picked up the book, I thought it was gonna be just a bit ordinary..I had no idea it was so good! Actually, it's one of my favourites. Can't wait to see the movie! The previous ones were awesome..this one is going to be a blast :)

As for Making Money, my school library just got it, and after I'm done with Night Watch, that should be my next reading. Considering it's a sort of "sequel" to Going Postal.

Your school library has very good taste!
