A differenza dei suoi coetanei, il dodicenne Teppic non ha più tempo da dedicare agli amici, ai divertimenti o alle distrazioni del sabato pomeriggio. È diventato, infatti, faraone di un regno desertico del Mondo Disco, e non si tratta di un incarico semplice: non puoi più portare con te alcun denaro, giovani donne disinibite ti blandiscono con acini d'uva, tutti ti ritengono responsabile del sorgere del sole e del maturare del grano, continui a fare uno strano sogno di sette vacche grasse e sette vacche magre e, soprattutto, la Grande Piramide rischia di esplodere per un'instabilità paracosmica...

Conservatives vs progressives was, even in this version of ancient Egypt, a hot topic, and Pratchett ridicules the arguments of antiquated minds by exaggerating their prime goals and authorities in general. It´s never bad for craftsmen to organize in guilds or unions and if the specialization is some Leggi tutto
So this was close to a 5 star ⭐️ book, but topped out at 4.49 recurring, thus meaning due to the law of fractals and quantum, it rounds down to 4, well that’s all according to ”You Bastard” you understand 😂 More to follow when Jeht, the Boatman of the Solar Orb, rises on the morrow. So I'm guessing th Leggi tutto
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 Leggi tutto
I think I may have enjoyed this one a bit more the second time around, but not enough to change my rating. :) Indeed, I had a lot more 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 an Leggi tutto
The desert kingdom of Djelibeybi is THE country 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 and Leggi tutto
Terry Pratchett takes the mick out of ancient Egyptians, hilarity follows Overview Pyramids 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. Structu Leggi tutto

The main character of Pyramids is Pteppic, the crown prince of the tiny kingdom of Djelibeybi, the Discworld counterpart to Ancient Egy Leggi tutto
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 aud Leggi tutto
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 equi Leggi tutto
Siempre que leo un libro de Pratchett termino con la sensación que ha merecido la pena aunque en esta ocasión no sea para mi lo mejor que llevo leído del Mundodisco. Se agradece en estos tiempos leer un libro que te evade de la triste realidad que vivimos en este 2020 y consigue sacarte una sonrisa Leggi tutto
