Brutha is a simple lad. He can't read or write, but he's pretty good at growing melons, and his wants are few. He wants peace and justice and brotherly love, but most of all he wants his god, who's currently in the shape of a tortoise, to choose someone else.

Review: Small Gods (Discworld #13)

User Review  - Chad - Goodreads

Very similar in structure and tone to his (and Neil Gaiman's) magnum opus Good Omens. But as an entryway into Discworld, I am sold. Looking forward to Guards!Guards!, Going Postal, Wyrd Sisters, Mort and Night Watch which are now added to my queue. Read full review
