Being trained by the Assassin's Guild in Ankh-Morpork did not fit Teppic for the task assigned to him by fate. He inherited the throne of the desert kingdom of Djelibeybi rather earlier than he expected (his father wasn't too happy about it either), but that was only the beginning of his problems...

Customer Reviews of Pyramids


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Terry Pratchett There is not another author out there that delivers such a perfect and entertaining story every single time as Terry Pratchett. This book is another example of how amazing a writer he is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Enjoyable Thoroughly enjoyable. I laugh every time. A little convoluted at times but in a way that makes you feel gratified when you realize what's going on. It contains some mature themes, but nothing graphic, and if you're too young to read them, you're too young to understand them anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a really funny book I really liked this book, because it was so funny and had an interesting story-line. I found it slightly confusing at times though, and was just barely able to figure out some parts of the story. I'll guess that's because it was made for teenagers, and I was only 11 when I first read it. In any case, it's a good book and I definitely reccomend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another fine Discworld read "Pyramids", the seventh Discworld novel, follows the adventures of Teppic, an assassin from Ankh-Morpokh, who suddenly finds himself the king of a very Egyptian country. Trouble, as always, ensues. "Pyramids" is another novel worthy of Terry Pratchett's name. It is only vaguely Discworld-esque, however, as the action takes place in the Discworld equivalent of Ancient Egypt. Lots of fun ensues, but it may not be what you're used to from a Discworld novel. Greek philosophers trying to prove their theorems, a rematch of the Trojan War, lots of mummies and high priests, and mathematician camels: definitely worth it for the Discworld fan, but perhaps not the best choice for a first Discworld read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pyramids Pratchett gives us his version of Ancient Egypt, into which some modern ideas have been interjected. This Disc World novel follows the adventures of Teppic, heir to the throne of the desert kingdom of Djelibeybi, who has been trained as an assassin. Upon the sudden death of his father, Teppic is required to assume the throne of his ancestors. This is only the start of all of his troubles. Pratchett looks at our fascination with all things Egyptian in a very humourous way.

From Our Editors

Teppic wasn’t exactly expecting to become king of Djelibeybi as soon as he did -- and as it turns our, his father didn’t expect it either. Now the young king, trained by the Assassin’s Guild in Ankh-Morpork, has far more on his plate than he could ever stomach. Teppic’s hilarious predicament will make you roll with laughter in Pyramids, one of the most hilarious instalments in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series.
