In the beginning was the word.  And the word was "Hey, you!"

For Brutha the novice is the Chosen One.  He wants peace and justice and brotherly love.

He also wants the Inquisition to stop torturing him now, please...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Stand Alone I enjoyed this book. It explored a lot of interesting topics, including belief, religion, and gods. Unfortunately, it didn't feel connected to the rest of the Discworld. The characters you've grown to know and love, over the course of the series, are mostly absent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small gods A book to make you think and to make you laugh. Liturature has lost one of its finest minds of the century.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Discworld novel "Small Gods" follows the story of Brutha, a simple-minded but gentle Novice, caught in the web of intrigues of the Quisition and the head exquisitor, Vorbis. He is the Chosen of his god Om... Only problem is, Om is trapped in the body of an old, one-eyed turtle with a fear for eagles. This Discworld novel is simply delightful. Brutha is both endearing and extremely comical, and comes off as having more depth than most characters from the early Discworld novels, with the Night Watch and the Witches excluded. His tale is, ultimately, touching, endearing, and somewhat tragic. Oh, and there's plenty of fruity philosophers, mad priests and general insanity to go around, too. Finishing the novel, one is left with a warm, fuzzy feeling, having read a very funny, yet somewhat deeply touching, humane story. It might be the 12th Discworld novel, but it's highly recommended as a starter into the Discworld series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Gods One of Pratchett's Disc World novels, it examines such topics as the Inquisition, religious intolerance and the scientific revolution in a humourous way. This is achieved through the adventures of Brutha, the new Chosen One of the great god Om. There are many problems that Brutha must deal with, including the fact that Om is trapped in the shape of a very small one-eyed tortoise. To make matters worse, they must both be careful of Vorbis the head of the inquisition. One wrong move, and it's the end. I highly recommend this novel.
