Small Gods: (Discworld Novel 13) (Discworld Novels&hellip by Terry Pratchett

Every time I pick up a Discworld novel I feel obligated to give it full marks, and each time I read a new one I feel it deserves five stars more than the last. Small Gods is no exception. Terry Pratchett has covered an area of the discworld he has only tapped on briefly before and even then it provided a lot of humour. In Small Gods; gods, religion, philosophy, philosophers, mild megalomaniacy and the on going fight between tortoises and eagles are explained. It is set outside of the usual parameters of the areas described in Discworld novels, exept maybe Pyramids, by going into areas of that wonderful disc, on top of 4 elephants, on the back of a giant space turtle, previously… Read more

This is undoubtedly one of the most hilarious and down right eccentric books in the Discworld series. This isn't the best place to start for newcomers to the series as it relies heavily on you liking books like The Colour of Magic, The Light Fantastic, Eric, Sourcery and any book that has the complexities of magic and Rincewind, and this book is an extreme. It asks about philosophical impossibilities and theories of time and matter fitting into itself!? It's definately a very plot filled book. It follows the adventures of the misplaced Rincewind(and the Luggage), the misplaced Unseen University seniors(who run into a deity who hasn't quite learnt about "the birds and the bees") who are… Read more
