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)

    "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.

    "On point as usual"

    I've enjoyed Mr. Pratchett's books for years now. The way he can and does make us see inside our lives and culture of the human race is simply a gift. Here we have a truly honest discussion hidden in a story so richly detailed that we completely forget there is a parable here. Then every once in a while through the story we a given set prices that remind us that there is indeed a lesson to be learned if only we as a race would listen.
