Small Gods has to compete as one of my favourite Discworld Novels. It is very, very funny - and yet, it reaches depths of observation about humanity, religion, philosophy that many an academic treatise barely scratches.
I have listened to Small Gods many many times now. I can say with little fear of being wrong that it is my favorite audiobook and performance. It's both hilarious and thought provoking.
This book really speaks to Pratchett's philosophy on religion, spirituality, cruelty and humanity. The first time I read this it opened my eyes without being heavy handed or preachy.
Love listening to young adult fantasy when I run and slightly more epic fantasy when I commute into work.
Ahh what a listen. I want to read a biography on terry Pritchett after this book, the characters, the prose, the end to end story are all masterful!
All that a 3rd grader could listen too as well, no harsh language or graphic descriptions.
My books are water; those of the great geniuses are wine; (fortunately) everybody drinks water. - Mark Twain
It's funny, thought provoking, and entertaining. It satirises religious institutions, people, and practices, and the role of religion in political life. I highly recommend it.
