Discworld is an extragavanza--among much else, it has billions of gods. "They swarm as thick as herring roe," writes Terry Pratchett in Small Gods, the 13th book in the series. Where there are gods galore, there are priests, high and low, and ... there are novices. Brutha is a novice with little chance to become a priest--thinking does not come easily to him, although believing does. But it is to Brutha that the great god Om manifests, in the lowly form of a tortoise. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"Deftly weaves themes of forgiveness, belief and spiritual regeneration... While other writers gnaw at violence, sexuality and rootless despair" (The Times)
"An intriguing satire on institutionalized religion corrupted by power, crackling with one-liners while obliquely suggesting that maybe gods are only as powerful as the beliefs of their followers" (Independent)
"Spectacular inventiveness make the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction" (Mail on Sunday)
"Surely the best novel Terry Pratchett has ever written, and the best comedy" (John Clute Interzone Magazine)
