Pratchett has sadly gone the way of many authors who pump out book after book, which is to start repeating them. This book is a sequel to his last book (the postal one), but unlike his previous serials, there is nothing new happening in this one.

I demand more Susan! ( )

A satirical fantasy about banks and money with a criminal in charge. But then the city of Ankh-Morpok is run by an assassin. ( )

Ágætis vitleysa líkt og margar bækur Pratchetts. Eftir að Lipwig bjargaði póstkerfi Ankk-Morporks sendir Vetinari hann í bankakerfið. Næg spilling þar og nóg af óvinum. Nú er Lipwig hins vegar ekki vafasamur skúrkur heldur orðinn meira sem hetja sem kominn er til bjargar. ( )

I liked this book and it actually made me think a lot about why money works the way it does. I didnt like it as much as Going Postal but it was still good and I love the main characters. ( )

MvL takes on the stock market... in an appropriately confounding tale including a turnip, secretaries in love with their bosses, a chef allergic to g____c, and lamb's head stew complete with head (and sunglasses). I was not very fond of one running joke (pun unavoidable). For various reasons, including that and the fact that my reading life is out of control, this will probably be the last Terry Pratchett I read for a while. Here's wishing that Moist had taken on Taxes. ( )

For all the economic theory in play here, Pratchett makes everything look easy - you get the sense that he's one of the smartest people writing fantasy out there, but he just doesn't feel like showing it off. He is always unbelievably fluid in his prose and the comic aphorisms that seem to flow out of him. Every once in a while he cues his punchlines too noticeably, with an "after all," or an "oh all right then." But it's hard to complain - he also uses the word "hopefully" correctly. Also: "charivari."
afegit per PhoenixTerran | editaio9, Austin Grossman (Apr 17, 2009)
 
When Pratchett is at his best, he matches the greatest satirists in piercing the veil of shared illusion. In a time when money's absurdities puzzle even those who purport to possess it, we need him to do better.
