"'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)
"'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)

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
With many of the novels however, there can be times when some moments are hard to understand, (like what is a llb?), but was made hilarious again by calling a camel (who's a mathematician) YouBastard!
Overall, both Pyramids and Small Gods are something to poke fun of religion at, especially with as much humour as Pratchett did. So, even with the four stars, I would rate this 8/10.
Looked forward to reading the tale....art work excellent and on first sight the book looked good.
On starting however I seemed to get lost amongst a host of unlikely characters and events which to say the least are bizarre.
Very unfortunately Mr ......Sir Terry is rather too much for me as I was unable to see through to the end.
