Praise for Pyramids

“'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

“'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
