      I think I may have enjoyed this one a bit the second time around, but not enough to change my rating Indeed, I had a lot fun with all the quantum irregularities surrounding the Pyramids out in the boonies of Discworld.There s a lot of great ribbing for conspiracy theorists who go on and on about the dimensions of the real pyramids and the mystical importance, even going so far as to make these monuments at least here into time recyclers It s very funny and Death isn t pleased Fortunately for D [...]

      The desert kingdom of Djelibeybi is THE place to get yourself the ultimate eternal resting place Boasting a history of thousands of years, its kings and queens had ample time to pepper the shore of the river Djel with pyramids of various sizes Of course, such an endeavor is not exactly cheap unsurprisingly enough, the entire kingdom is neck deep in debt.It is now up to 12 year old crown prince Pteppic to save the country He was signed up at the prestigious Assassin s Guild in far off Ankh Morpor [...]

      Terry Pratchett takes the mick out of ancient Egyptians, hilarity followsOverviewPyramids gets a solid 4 star rating I rarely have a physical reaction when I m reading but I was chuckling on the train to this one hopefully not too loudly This has turned me from a fan to a Pratchett fanboy StructurePyramids uses a fairly straight forward structure It s linear and focuses, mainly, on Teppic our main character The paragraphs are nice and short in the main It also includes the nice little footnotes [...]

      When I think about the Discworld series I instinctively want to give them all 5 stars, they via Sir Pratchett provide such a huge amount of entertainment, fire such delights of imagination and offer much food for thought on any number of subjects both Big and small and yet as I run through the audio books in an attempts to stem the flowing tide of flabby bits about my middle I find myself unable to truthfully say that every entry is worthy of that ultimate rating Pyramids is one such title, it i [...]

      Pyramids is Sir Terry Pratchett s 7th Discworld book and the Pratchett Smile O Meter is dancing happily as this is another fun ride with cool Uncle Terry.This is a blisteringly funny satire on religion, faith and loyalty taking place in the blisteringly hot desert of Discworld in the Old Kingdom of Djelibeybi which is of course analogous to Egypt in our world.First published in 1989 and by this time Pratchett s fame and fortune with the Discworld was established and he mixed things up a bit The [...]

    6. Trish on said:

      This seventh Discworld novel is, for once, divided into three parts.The first part, The Book of Going Forth, tells the story of the main character Pteppic I m reminded of the German word Teppich, which means carpet He is the son of the ruler of the desert country of Djelibeybi the Discworld equivalent of Egypt but because his mother insisted on a foreign education before her death, he spent most of his years at Ankh Morpork s Assassin s Guild.The second part, The Book of the Dead, takes the read [...]

      And the gods go crazy24 November 2012 I am really glad that I decided to reread a the Discworld novels to give them a better commentary as I have found that I have been quite enjoying them, and in many ways they have been getting better and better However, this is the second to last one that I read and it seems that I may have originally read them in order of publication, since the last one I read was Guards, Guards, and that is sitting next to me waiting to be reread very soon Pratchett seems t [...]

      Back to the Pratchett reread with the SpecFic Buddy Reads group I skipped Wyrd Sisters because I ve only recently reread it, but now I m back on the main thread of the read This is at least my third read of this and probably I can remember when there were only ten or so Discworld books and I would read a selection of them every year.Pteppic Teppic is the crown prince of the Old Kingdom of Djelibeybi and has been studying abroad in Ankh Morpork with the Assassin s Guild when his father King Tepp [...]

      People needed to believe in gods, if only because it was so hard to believe in people Here s one for the history buffs Anyone who s familiar with the Trojan War or has an interest in Ancient Egypt and Greece would probably get a kick out of this So many good references In case that doesn t interest you, there are also some assassins and some camels who are very good at math.I didn t enjoy this one as much as I had expected to I think it just felt too long for a Pratchett novel and there were too [...]

      Executive Summary Another good, but not great entry in the Discworld series This one seems to read pretty much stand alone, though I think it would be best to have some knowledge of the series prior to this book.Full ReviewIt s been a few months since my marathon of several of the previous books, and I was in the mood for Mr Pratchett s humor I d been in a bit of a reading slump after my previous book, and hoped this would be a light quick read to break me of that.Unfortunately that wasn t the c [...]

    11. Jonathan on said:

      Philosophically, this is the richest Discworld novel so far I m reading them in order of publication It mounts a delightful critique of tradition and religion It s not just another tiresome empiricist refutation by lack of imagination, or even another tiresome denunciation of priestcraft although it contains elements of both It s actually an idealist critique, in the end Here s a scene from pp 202 3 Belief is a force It s a weak force, by comparison with gravity when it comes to moving mountains [...]

    12. A. on said:

      Pyramids is, so far, my favourite Terry Pratchett book.The humour is sublime, and that s why I read him.This takes place on the Discworld, but isn t part of any other series The characters here don t get to have any adventures But that s fine, because their stories are complete This is one of the true Discworld standalones I know everyone says that you can read any Discworld book in any order, but that s madness.What actually happens in this book An assassin that s taking his final exam receive [...]

      Relectura Mundodisco 7 Tras iniciar varias sagas y presentarnos varios de sus personajes clave en las anteriores entregas, Pratchett nos dej esta novela independiente ambientada en Djelibeibi el Egipto del Mundodisco.Al contrario que otras de sus novelas donde predomina la diversi n y el caos, aqu Pratchett se pone m s filos fico y reflexiona sobre las tradiciones y la importancia de la religi n en la sociedad Tambi n cuenta con sus momentos divertidos desde la presentaci n del gremio de los ase [...]

    14. Yara (The Narratologist) on said:

      In Pyramids, the seventh book in the Discworld universe and the first in the gods ancient civilisations subseries, Pratchett tackles ancient Egypt and the pseudoscientific pyramid power theory It tells the story of a young prince turned assassin and the strange the country of Djelibeybi ha , where pyramids dominate the landscape and the king is believed to be a god Mummies come to life, deities wreak havoc, time and space are bent beyond all recognition, and Pratchett even manages to squeeze a f [...]

    15. Chloe on said:

      The name Djelibeybi made me laugh a lot when I realised how it was pronounced This setting is an entertaining take on Ancient Egypt and its mythology, and religion in general, and the take on assassins is very welcome from Discworld He has a great way of making fun of and being very realistic about ideas and traditions that manages not to be offensive His respect and knowledge is as clear as his intelligence and writing genius Every story is very entertaining, and the way he puts so many differe [...]

      Pratchett vs Egypt Guess who wins What happens when an assassin inherits a kingdom that is stuck in the past Read this to find out.In fact, I think Pratchett might have been on to something.

      Read this today while my youngest daughter is recovering from surgery Another Pratchett that I have read before, but an edition I never owned Bless you Pterry.

    18. Alfred Haplo on said:

      This is a novel lost in praises, but not of its own Wedged between two immensely popular books,Wyrd Sisters 6 2nd of Witches sub series and Guards Guards 8 1st of City Watch sub series , Pyramids 7 suffers from understatement by proximity It is the book your finger passes as it brushes perpendicularly across the upright spines of DiscWorld books in the bookstore to invest that US 9.99 saved just enough to buy one Pratchett book It is also the book you may not see displayed at the library, and is [...]

      La gente necesitaba creer en dioses aunque s lo fuese por lo dif cil que resultaba creer en las personas Sinceramente no ten a las expectativas muy altas cuando lo empec , ya que me dijeron que era m s flojo que Dioses menores, su predecesor Por lo que cuando comenc a leerlo me llev una grata sorpresa con ese ritmo trepidante y la narraci n combinando el pasado con el presente Es una historia que atrapa, que abarca uno de los temas favoritos favoritos de Pratchett las religiones y el poder de su [...]

      Just finished re reading this one, and wanted to say how wonderful it is It s mind bendingly quantum, has fabulous parallels with the roundworld, puns galore Djelibeybi Ptraci and the greatest mathematician on the Disc You Bastard The characters are beautifully drawn, and Pratchett s humanism is once again apparent There are no really evil characters, just misguided ones, and in portraying these characters he highlights universal human failings and encourages introspection and understanding Quit [...]

      This book is a or less standalone novel in the Discworld universe The chart shows it as the start of the Ancient Civilizations subseries, but it only has a dotted line minor connection to other books.I enjoyed this, but not as much as some of the previous Discworld books The protagonist is Teppic, the only son of the king of a small kingdom This kingdom has stayed relatively unchanged for about 7000 years and its citizens rarely venture beyond its borders They value ritual and tradition and the [...]

      Entering the reread of this one, I didn t really remember a single thing about the story The only thing I knew was that this was never one of my favorites.I think I enjoyed it on the reread than I did on my first go around, though it probably still won t be one of my faves It won t be in the bottom tier, either.This is pretty much a standalone in the series I don t believe we ever encounter Teppic again or, if we do, I don t recall it just now but it s also a companion piece with Small Gods whi [...]

      The only good thing about commercial air travel is that it provides ample opportunity to read And if anything can make a delayed flight tolerable, it s Pratchett in fine form.This is top shelf Discworld I don t know how I managed not to ever have read this particular one before If Small Gods is my favorite Discworld volume, this one s certainly in the top five It s got plenty of witty asides and groaner puns, but being an early book in the series, spares the reader the tedium of the usual Ankh M [...]
