The unabridged, digital audiobook edition of Rick Riordan’s The Kane Chronicles: The Red Pyramid, read by Joseph May and Jane Collingwood.
Percy Jackson fought Greek Gods. Now the Gods of Egypt are waking in the modern world....
I guess it started the night out dad blew up the British Museum....
Carter and Sadie Kane's dad is a brilliant Egyptologist with a secret plan that goes horribly wrong. An explosion shatters the ancient Rosetta stone and unleashes Set, the evil god of chaos.
Set imprisons Dr Kane in a golden coffin and Carter and Sadie must run for their lives. To save their dad, they embark on a terrifying quest from Cairo to Paris to the American Southwest and discover the truth about their family’s connection to the House of Life: an Egyptian temple of magic that has existed for thousands of years. The pharaohs of ancient Egypt are far from dead and buried. And so, unfortunately, are their gods....

I love the egyptian mythology, so explorer this book was very exciting
For me all the book is memorable. It's impossible choose only one moment.
Not much but it served the purpose it was narrating the story.
"Interesting and enlightened"
This story gives us an insight to the Egyptian way of life, plus the way they lived and what they believed in. Good story.
Awesome book great get it good for boys and girls
Best book I've ever heard we've all enjoyed it in my family
A very good book and keeps you wondering what will happen next.
I love how their is two narrators for the siblings
I'm 13 and my sisters 9 and we both enjoyed this book and are great fans of rick riordan's books
"A new twist on egyptian mythology"
It is better as an audio book rather than text to speech which is sometimes very difficult to follow.
Aretimis Fowl by Eoin Colfer because the borders of fantasy and reality cross
Sadie because she gave more background description and it padded out the story
It made me laugh, particularly the description of some of the Gods when faced with the modern world
You have to read them all because they are great. I hope there will be more in the series.
Good narrator, American boy, English girl. I really liked it, even though it is magicians, not demigods. I hope you enjoy it!
"An excellent book which appeals to both sexes"
I haven't read the print version
There were so many - I can't recall the most memorable. It is jam-packed with exciting moments.
The narrators are excellent - Jane bringing to life Sadie's character and wit and the same for Joseph May.
The relationship between brother and sister is very well portrayed, from initial irritation to a growing love and respect.
My family (3 kids aged 11,9 and 7 - boys and girls) listened to this twice through. It's actually better the second time because there is so much information you miss lots the first time through. Listeners learn a lot about Egyptian mythology and Gods, but again you need 2 listenings to get the real knowledge and understanding. Oh - did I say it's very funny in places - Sadie's sarcasm in particular. We all really enjoyed it.
The whole thing. I've read the book but I really enjoyed listening to both Jane Collingwood and Joseph May read it. They really brought Sade and Carter to life as well as Zia, Set and Horus. It had me laughing out loud.
The banter between Sade and Carter and Carter and Horus.
Hard to pick a favourite scene there were so many.
"Rick Riordan does it again!"
Addictive, enthralling, family
Percy Jackson tales
They helped to bring the characters alive.
A lovely book to share as a family
The different characters and use of different people
When they learn to understand themselfs
The difference between the characters and the emotions
"100% Recommend engaging teenage listen"
I got this book for the drive to school with my daughters. They couldn't wait for the journey to school each morning and it inspired them to visit the British Museum and both Cleopatra's needles.
Downloading the second part for the drive to school in the morning now. I enjoyed it too, great narration, hard act to follow. Fingers crossed.
