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.

©1989 Terry Pratchett and Lynn Pratchett; (P)1997 ISIS Publishing Ltd.

good puns, but not his usual brillance

What disappointed you about Pyramids?

The whole book is broken in parts called "books" Book 1 didn't catch my interest in the least. Book 2 I really enjoyed Book 3 is just like book 1 zzzzzz. I stopped listening yuck!

Would you ever listen to anything by Terry Pratchett again?

absolutely!! I love "Dodger" "Going Postal" and many others

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I don't think he did

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Book 2 was engaging

A fun Listen

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

We are all a bite odd and enjoy this type of humor

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hard to say

What does Nigel Planer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love books but HATE to read so Nigel Planner lets me experience the entire book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

It is your daddy's old kingdom.
