Publisher's Summary

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....

    Story
    "A new twist on egyptian mythology"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Red Pyramid: The Kane Chronicles, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

    It is better as an audio book rather than text to speech which is sometimes very difficult to follow.


    What other book might you compare The Red Pyramid: The Kane Chronicles, Book 1 to, and why?

    Aretimis Fowl by Eoin Colfer because the borders of fantasy and reality cross


    Which character – as performed by Jane Collingwood and Joseph May – was your favourite?

    Sadie because she gave more background description and it padded out the story


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh, particularly the description of some of the Gods when faced with the modern world


    Any additional comments?

    You have to read them all because they are great. I hope there will be more in the series.

    Story
    "Excellent"
    What did you like most about The Red Pyramid: The Kane Chronicles, Book 1?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Red Pyramid: The Kane Chronicles, Book 1?

    The banter between Sade and Carter and Carter and Horus.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Hard to pick a favourite scene there were so many.

    Story
    "An excellent book which appeals to both sexes"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Red Pyramid: The Kane Chronicles, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Red Pyramid: The Kane Chronicles, Book 1?

    There were so many - I can't recall the most memorable. It is jam-packed with exciting moments.


    What does Jane Collingwood and Joseph May bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The narrators are excellent - Jane bringing to life Sadie's character and wit and the same for Joseph May.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The relationship between brother and sister is very well portrayed, from initial irritation to a growing love and respect.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
