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.

All of the disk world stories are fun. I liked the additional insight into the assasin's guild. I would love to have a list of all the character's names in the disk world... I think this had a little bit better love story then most... Not that that is critical to the story,but it adds additional depth. As i am writing this review, I can' remember a lot of the details of the story,but I remember liking it... That may give you some insight into what kind of story this is. Fun interesting fluff.
Not my favorite Pratchett but who cares any time I listen or read his work I not only smile but think.
Simply brilliant. The jokes, puns, word play, and intelligent idea skirmishes were so fast and furious I could barely keep up. I loved it. I think it's one of the best. I really loved the camels and the names they have by custom. Hilarious. Forget the arguing about whether it's four stars or five, or if the fabulous irony is post modern, sit back and have fun listening.
We are all a bite odd and enjoy this type of humor
Hard to say
I love books but HATE to read so Nigel Planner lets me experience the entire book.
It is your daddy's old kingdom.
Of course, that's an easy review to write. Pratchett takes all of human history and mushes it together in this crazy place called imagination. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
