Brutha is a simple lad. He can't read. He can't write. He's pretty good at growing melons. And his wants are few.
He wants to overthrow a huge and corrupt church. He wants to prevent a horribly holy war. He wants to stop the persecution of a philosopher who has dared to suggest that, contrary to the Church's dogma, the Discworld really does go through space on the back of an enormous turtle. (Which is true, but when has that ever mattered?) He wants peace and justice and brotherly love. He wants the Inquisition to stop torturing him now, please.
But most of all, what he really wants, more than anything else, is for his god to choose someone else...

"Pratchett is the funniest parodist working in the field today, period." (The New York Review of Science Fiction)
"Terry Pratchett is simply the best humorous writer of the 20th century. Wodehouse, Waugh, Sharpe, etc. all have their merits, sometimes considerable, but Pratchett really is a cut above the rest." (Oxford Times)
I loved the examination of what some will worship and the twist in people's natures to believe it! Pratchett has a magic way of poking at people's naive and unquestioning belief in what they are told to and how that one special person can throw a wrench in it. Wonderfully witty!
I not only am willing but desperate to try others! He is one of my favs.
The turtle and his crankiness and the newest prophet to the flock.
No, several sittings, but this just makes it even better.
Everyone needs to laugh. You don't need any background in the Disc World to enjoy this story. It is close enough to our world to have a relevant point as well as just being an entertaining story.
Great characters, great story, great way to get into the Disc World.
Laughed out loud.
Awesome reading. Nigel Planer no longer reads the audiobooks for Pratchett, but this, I think, was his masterpiece and I am very glad it hasn't been redone.
Usual wonderful funny and wild stuff from discworld series,a delight! Gods definitely have human failings in this book.
