Not his best, but it's up there with them,

This review is from: Making Money (Discworld Novels) (Hardcover)
It's always difficult when introducing a new character. I feel that Pterry loves Moist perhaps more than a lot of us do, and he's almost trying too hard to make us love him too. I like Moist, I do - but he's no Vimes.
I am not sure that I really quite GOT this one, it kind of seemed two books shunted together, I'm probably missing the point about the gold and the golems or something.
But the character who makes this book live is Vetinari. For the first time (other than a brief glimpse in Night Watch) we see Vetinari as he really works behind the scenes to achieve the city's survival. I devoured every speech of his and was just thrilled to bits to see him out of the shadows. Perhaps it is because Moist would be a great Patrician and Vetinari is grooming him for such? Who can say?
More Vimes please, Pterry.
