Summary

'Look after the dead', said the priests, 'and the dead will look after you.' Wise words in all probability, but a tall order when you have just become the pharaoh of a small and penniless country whose largesse - and indeed treasury - is unlikely to stretch to the building of a monumental pyramid to honour your dead father.

Pyramids Summary

Pyramids: (Discworld Novel 7) by Terry Pratchett

Look after the dead', said the priests, 'and the dead will look after you.' Wise words in all probability, but a tall order when you have just become the pharaoh of a small and penniless country whose largesse - and indeed treasury - is unlikely to stretch to the building of a monumental pyramid to honour your dead father.

Pyramids Reviews

'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.
