Overview

Pyramids (Discworld Series #7) by Terry Pratchett, Tony Robinson

“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 pay for the construction of a monumental pyramid to honor your dead father. And particularly when your only visible means of support is a recently acquired qualification from the Guild of Assassins, an association wherein running a kingdom and basic financial acumen were not prerequisites for course entry.

Here we go again on Discworld. Pratchett is mixing an hilarious take on a stiff and unchanging tradition with his blend of twisted logic and magic. All the myths about pyramid power are here- sharpening blades, prolonging life, preserving food and then there are a few Prachett made up himself. There is a reluctant king, a beautiful slave girl, a "Zorro" figure and lots of laughs. And don't forget the importance of a thirsty camel. Finally, as in all Terry Prachett books there is an underlying social commentary. What should we do with our land and other resources? And is eternal life really something to be sought?
