Publisher's Summary

It isn't easy, being a teenage pharaoh. You're not allowed to carry money, uninhibited young women peel your grapes for you, everyone thinks you're responsible for making the sun rise and the corn grow, you keep dreaming about seven thin cows and seven fat cows (one of them playing the trombone), and on top of everything else, the Great Pyramid has just exploded because of paracosmic instability.And then you've got to deal with all these assassins, sphinxes, huge wooden horses, mad high priests, philosophers, sacred crocodiles, gods, marching mummies, jobbing pyramid builders and Hat, the Vulture-Headed God of Unexpected Guests.And all you really wanted was the chance to do something for young people and the inner cities.Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards.

good as usual

N. Planer is simply the best. a good book too. many a good laugh. lots of great ideas. the best one is about the generals always fighting the last war and then the horses...

Great stand-alone

As much a part of the Discworld series that this is, it's great as a stand-alone book to start off with if you want an introduction to Terry Pratchett's very own style of comedy. The story itself is wonderful, full of quirky characters, epic mysteries, ancient civilisations and camels.



While I prefer Stephen Briggs as narrator for Terry Pratchett's books, Nigel Planer does a good job of portraying different characters, subtly changing dialects. The quality of the recording is sadly a bit lacking with a flat sound that sometimes inexplicably slows down for entire chapters.

"Going Forth is Easy..."

The narration was excellent as always.

The story humorous and yet thought provoking, but don't let that put you off... You can still listen to it is you just want something you can listen to with out thinking. 😊

Great naration and fun storyline

What made the experience of listening to Pyramids the most enjoyable?

If you are a Terry Pratchett fan then you will enjoy this one (though not as funny as some of his other), as always delivering a humorous fantasy. This is my first audio book of Terry's that I have listened to and will definitely recommend the narrator!

Makes you think about space, time and dimensions. I'll always respect the camel from now on!
