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)
"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!
