4 stars for Pyramids. I find this story from the Discworld takes a bit more getting into than other books.
Teppic, our hero, is sent from the ancient Kingdom to study at the Assassins Guild in the mighty city of Ankh Morpork. Teppic's father , the king, discovers he can not fly and Teppic must return home to take over his kingly responsibility. And the adventure and mayhem begins.
The book shows why razors appear to stay sharp in a pyramid, the consequences of super sized pyramids and how Gods never live up to your expectations when they leave the abstract and enter the real world.
For me this is not the best of Sir Terry of Pratchett's novels, but not the best of his is still better than the best of many writers. Well worth a read.
