Description

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...

PYRAMIDS (THE BOOK OF GOING FORTH) IS THE SEVENTH DISCWORLD NOVEL - AND THE MOST OUTRAGEOUSLY FUNNY TO DATE.

Review quote

'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 *

About Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett was the acclaimed creator of the global bestselling Discworld series, the first of which, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983. In all, he was the author of over fifty bestselling books which have sold over 100 million copies worldwide. His novels have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he was the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal. He was awarded a knighthood for services to literature in 2009, although he always wryly maintained that his greatest service to literature was to avoid writing any.
