Publisher's Summary

Brutha is the Chosen One. His god has spoken to him, admittedly while currently in the shape of a tortoise.

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...

What the Critics Say

"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)

    Story
    "somewhat confusing..."
    What did you like best about Small Gods? What did you like least?

    i found this perticular story to be quite confusing, but i admit that it might be because it took me a long time to get through the book and i only got to listen to it for short amounts of time at any given time so that might be why i had trouble following the story


    Would you be willing to try another book from Terry Pratchett? Why or why not?

    i've read or listened to almost all of his books so indeed yes :)


    What about Nigel Planer’s performance did you like?

    Nigel has a good strong voice that i never get annoyed with or tired of listening to


    Was Small Gods worth the listening time?

    no, but like i said, that might be due to real life making me unable to follow my usual listening habits

    "Spatulas and corkscrews"

    Every time I open a kitchen drawer, I am reminded of this book. As in every story by Pterry, there are places where you can hang your past memories or pick up a few more, hooks for things you forgot you knew and occasionally a push pin trapping a small, dead thing that is more than a memory but not always a good one. There's wit, there's warmth and as typical with his work, there are questions and answers. Not always the right ones and not always matching what you expect. Of course, if you want to be entertained and not stretched, you can do that too. Only read every other word, if that's the case. It's much simpler.

    "Another superb novel......"

    As a Terry Pratchett fan I was not disappointed in this book. This book has plenty of his humour making it an enjoyable story with a perspective on what makes a God! Nigel Planner is an excellent narrator bringing the characters to life as you listen.



    Overall well written and well read! I'd recommend this to any Pratchett fan!
