Product Description

Review

"'Like Dickens, much of Pratchett's appeal lies in his humanism, both in a sentimental regard for his characters' good fortune, and in that his writing is generous-spirited and inclusive'" Guardian "'As funny as Wodehouse and as witty as Waugh'" Independent "'Imagine a collision between Jonathan Swift at his most scatologically-minded and J.R.R. Tolkien on speed'" Daily Telegraph "'The best kind of parody - funny and smart and still a good story'" Mail on Sunday --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

Pyramids (The Book of Going Forth) is the seventh Discworld novel - and the most outrageously funny to date. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

It's bad enough being new on the job, but Teppic hasn't a clue as to what a pharaoh is supposed to do. After all, he's been trained at Ankh-Morpork's famed assassins' school, across the sea from the Kingdom of the Sun.First, there's the monumental task of building a suitable resting place for Dad -- a pyramid to end all pyramids. Then there are the myriad administrative duties, such as dealing with mad priests, sacred crocodiles, and marching mummies. And to top it all off, the adolescent pharaoh discovers deceit, betrayal -- not to mention aheadstrong handmaiden -- at the heart of his realm.

--This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
