    Description

    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.

    Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards.

    Audio is variable

    This is a great book well read, but beware the audio quality is all over the place. I know it's a 'vintage recording' but that doesn't excuse a good chunk of it being (ironically given the subject of the book) recorded at the wrong speed. Planer sounds drunkenly slow at times and speeds up again just as you've acclimatised to it. I've no doubt it was like this in the original release, and it's become no less disappointing since then considering how trivial it'd be to fix.

    Another Great Pratchett in Need of Clean-Up

    Where does Pyramids rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Above average in terms of performance. Fantastic in terms of story, and below average in terms of audio quality.

    What other book might you compare Pyramids to and why?

    Along the lines of Moving Pictures, also by Pratchett.

    Which character – as performed by Nigel Planer – was your favorite?

    You Bastard, the Discworld's foremost mathematician.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh and cringe. Funny book, and absorbing, but the audio quality, like most of the early recordings of Pratchett's books, sounds as thought it was transferred from audio tape.

    Any additional comments?

    One of Planer's better recitals, but needs an audio clean-up. Worth getting though!

    Audio quality is bad

    This is one of the weaker audio transfers from analog to digital. During 'book II' the playback speed changes making Nigel Planer sound like he's drunk. The story of Ptepic is great, and it's an enjoyable enough listen, but perhaps the audio transfer could be redone?

    good as usual

    N. Planer is simply the best. a good book too. many a good laugh. lots of great ideas. the best one is about the generals always fighting the last war and then the horses...

    Great characters in the disk world tradition

    Great narration adds to the overall enjoyment. Nigel Planer adds to the experience of the novel by creating rich rewarding verbal images of people and place, A very enjoyable book to lose your self in.

    Miserable Audioqualität

    Pratchett bleibt Pratchett, aber von Audible ist man bessere Tonqualität gewöhnt. Der Ton ist sehr dumpf und mittenbetont, wie auf Kassette.

    stellenweise sehr dumpfe Aufnahme

    Einer der besten Pratchett-Sprecher und eine der besten Geschichten dieses Autors, bei der das Hörvergnügen aber leider durch die stellenweise etwas dumpfe Klangqualität (insbesondere am Anfang der Aufnahme) getrübt wird. Wer alt genug ist, diese Geräte noch zu kennen, wird sich an die analogen Telefone mit Wählscheibe erinnert fühlen. Hier wäre eine Nachbearbeitung oder notfalls auch eine komplette Neuaunahme wünschenswert. Die spannende Geschichte läßt den Hörer zwar die Mängel der Aufnahme rasch vergessen, trotzdem ist es schon ein gewisser Schock, wenn man unmittelbar zuvor die glasklare Aufnahme eines anderen Pratchett-Buchs mit dem selben Sprecher gehört hat.
