Much like the rest of Pratchett's novels, this is pure wit with true knowledge and observation sprinkled in.

There's reflections about financial markets in this one with a lot of real-life resonance.

The last third or so is so densely packed I had to backtrack occasionally to make sure I had picked everything up, but hey! A book with a main character named "Moist" that you can take seriously enough is a jewel in it's own right!

Still one of the finest, clearest, and funniest explanations of how financial markets work.

A fun and entertaining vacation read. Just what I needed on a day I was feeling grouchy. Terry Pratchett never fails to make me laugh out loud.

I may have to reread this entire series. So much excellence. How did he do this for over 40 books!?!?!

I listened to the audiobook, which I normally do. I kept having to go back and relisten to parts during the final 1/3 of the book. Lots of stuff happening and any distractions caused me to lose the thread. Anyway, good story!

Funny how I always envisioned Lord Vetinari as Jeremy Irons and that was reinforced after seeing the movie "The Colour of Magic". Perfect match there.
