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...

Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards.

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)

    "Great book - recording could be better"

    I love Terry Pratchett books. I found this to be an amusing and insightful take on organized religion. Not an easy subject to tackle but leave it to Pratchett!

    "very old recording of a fantastic book"

    I loved this book. heck I haven't come across a discworld book yet I don't love. that being said, this book is, in a literal sense, hard to hear. there is so much static and fuzz that I couldn't hear most of the book. the recording sounds like it was done 60+ years ago. I had to replay several chapters just to get the gist of what the reader was trying to say and it gets worse as you go.

    "One of the best"

    This is one of my favorite discworld novels, and Nigel Planer does an amazing performance. The voices of the characters are so distinct that it's easy to forget that it's only one person reading the whole time.

    "Wonderful Story,Fantastic Narration,TERRIBLE AUDIO"
    Any additional comments?

    The audio quality of this book was absolutely abysmal. The effort put forth by Nigel Planer was amazing, yet the overall encoding of the audio is quite a distraction.

    "Fantastic, highly recommended"

    Audio quality a bit fuzzy, but the greatness of the book overshadows that by a long margin.
    If you're a fan of high concept fantasy and witty banter, there is no greater author than Tarry Pratchett.

    "Best of Discworld"

    Let me start by stating that I'm an avid fan of the late great Terry Pratchett as well as a fan of Nigel Planer. In my opinion this is the best in the incredible Discworld series.
    I would recommend all of his books to anyone that likes well written, funny, character driven stories. This one has such wonderful biting wit and sarcasm from its man character, the god that might be down to his last true believer.

    "Bad audio quality"

    The story is a good solid one and Nigel Planer's narration is fine (which is why I didn't give this a lower review) but the sound quality is terrible. At around chapter 11 there's a part where the distortion gets really bad. I know they say it's a vintage recording, but I think this story deserves better than this.

    "Better Than an Episode of Monty Python"

    I enjoyed every minute of this parody of religion. I highly recommend this to all religious skeptics and zealots.
