Making Money by Terry Pratchett
The master does it again. Narrativium resists my predictions of becoming just too predictable.
The human condition twisted just enough to bring it into even sharper focus than reality normally grants. Ventinari continues to undermine my faith in democracy, as he says "Do I need to wear a badge marked 'tyrant'?"
A particularly lovely set piece at the end and lots of food for thought on the meaning of freewill.
Surprisingly little material taking the mick out of Banks - but then, working in one, I have perhaps more raw material at my fingertips than Pterry did.
I want a Golem.
All too brief - barely a days read - come on Pterry where is the next one?
4 out of 5.
