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.

    " Simply, brilliant... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theanonymousafro | 1/17/2014

    " To be honest may be my least favorite Discworld novel but was still pretty good "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam | 1/4/2014

    " I thoroughly thoroughly enjoyed this one, the comparisons with Ancient Egypt were amusing and surprising enlighting and the social satire that arose from the clash between traditional and progressive views was entertaining and hysterically funny. Pratchett's one liner's were witty and often unexpected and had me giggling out loud frequently. The characters of this book were well conceived and well written and you can identify traits in each that at least one person you know has (including yourself, although you may not necessarily admit it). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brigette | 12/19/2013

    " I really enjoyed this one - probably my favorite of the Discworld books I've read so far. But then again, I've always been a fan of Egyptology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 12/14/2013

    " I've said it before, this guy is so smart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will | 10/21/2013

    " Watch out for sea gulls. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooke | 10/17/2013

    " Like a house on fire (lots of flames, screaming, running away)... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony Faber | 8/21/2013

    " A reread. Discworld #7. It's a shame that the characters here never made it into any later books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerr Cuhulain | 6/16/2013

    " I am a major Pratchett fan. Great spoof of Egyptian mythology and great characters. Love this book and have re read it multiple times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth (Miss Eliza) | 3/31/2013

    " Loved it, funny about Egyptology and is so easy to visualize. Also the parody of Tom Brown's School Days with the sacraficing of a goat, priceless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gayla Bassham | 3/14/2013

    " Not my very favorite Pratchett, but still so. Much. Fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ange | 8/19/2012

    " Enjoyed it. Couldn't quite get the ending? Don't think we hear from these characters again. Although good descriptions of the assasins guild. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott Dailey | 4/28/2011

    " Another fun Discworld book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia Egbert | 1/6/2011

    " If you would like some great tongue in cheek quantum physics ideas to mess with your head...well you should pick up this volume from Discworld...it is delightful and so very funny!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marijke | 10/26/2009

    " Ik heb van dit boek genoten, zoals van alle Pratchett boeken. Ook deze is weer gevuld met grappige dialogen, absurde situaties en heel wat kritiek op onze maatschappij. Got to love Discworld ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moominboy | 6/20/2009

    " It surely doesn't drop below Pratchett's usual level but it's not as brilliant as, say, Moving Pictures. Or maybe I'm more fond of Ankh-Morpork centered novels... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 6/12/2009

    " Good Terry Pratchett. In many ways a very interesting one, but it had more than its fair share of dirty parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich | 5/11/2009

    " I enjoyed this book but i was thrown off by the fact that it wasn't about assassins at all, just that Teppic was an assassin. It was quite funny and random, especially You Bastard the Camel! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexandra | 4/20/2007

    " My favorite Pratchett book. Assassins and mathematical camels, what more could I ask for? One of his best books without a question. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loralee Knudsen | 3/9/2005

    " Funny and fun adventure story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chip Hill | 8/9/2004

    " Probably my favorite discworld book yet! "
