Pyramids –Discworld, Book 7, Audiobook Online By: Terry Pratchett
Brought to you by Penguin.
The Book of the Pyramids is narrated by Alfred Enoch, known for playing Dean Thomas in the Harry Potter series and Wes Gibbins in How To Get Away With Murder.
BAFTA and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Bill Nighy (Love Actually; Pirates of the Caribbean; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) read the captions, and Peter Serafinowicz (Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace; Shaun of the Dead) plays the lead role as the voice of Death. Features a new theme tune composed by James Hannigan.
‘”GO AFTER THE DEATH,” SAID THE PRINCIPLES, “AND THE DEATH WILL FOLLOW YOU.”‘
The young Prince Teppic is sent far from his desert homeland to the city of Ankh-Morpork to get the best education money can buy. It happened by chance at the Assassins Guild.
But when Teppic’s father dies suddenly, fate takes him from an assassination attempt to something much worse: politics. Teppic returned to the small penniless kingdom of Djelibeybi to take over the throne.
It’s not easy being a teenage pharaoh. Traditionally, the new king had to build a monumental pyramid to honor his deceased father. But this could bankrupt the kingdom, and warp its very fabric of time and space…
Discworld novels can be read in any order but Pyramid is independent. The first book in the Discworld series – Colors of Magic – was published in 1983. Certain elements of the Discworld universe may reflect this.
The listening ability of Discworld recordings has been very successful or (mostly) missed. I’m happy to say that this one definitely succeeds. Alfred Enoch did a great job of narrating vividly but not too loud. I will be looking for more titles from him in the future, because he has such a wonderful voice and meaning for audiobooks.
Enoch is one of the better voice actors on the re-records – he reads the narration playfully, like he’s actually enjoying the pun in Ptrachett’s work. He also has pretty consistent voices for different characters, and each voice really shows off the characters’ personalities. His Dios in particular is a very interesting character. The way Enoch voices him makes him an ambiguous moral character and a tragic character throughout the book, without the obvious evil of a Vorbis.
