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.

I've read almost all of the Discworld novels in the last 3 months, since my son got home from college and recommended them. I've reread only a couple of the books. Small Gods simply resonates with me as none of the others. Even so, it is hilarious. The ending is pure gold. Read full review
