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.

Audio is variable

This is a great book well read, but beware the audio quality is all over the place. I know it's a 'vintage recording' but that doesn't excuse a good chunk of it being (ironically given the subject of the book) recorded at the wrong speed. Planer sounds drunkenly slow at times and speeds up again just as you've acclimatised to it. I've no doubt it was like this in the original release, and it's become no less disappointing since then considering how trivial it'd be to fix.
