Description

"Humorously entertaining. . . subtly thought-provoking. . . Pratchett's Discworld books are filled with humor and magic." --Chicago Tribune "Think J.R.R. Tolkien with a sharper, more satiric edge." --Houston Chronicle The thirteenth novel in the Discworld series from New York Times bestselling author Sir Terry Pratchett. Lost in the chill deeps of space between the galaxies, it sails on forever, a flat, circular world carried on the back of a giant turtle-- Discworld --a land where the unexpected can be expected. Where the strangest things happen to the nicest people. Like Brutha, a simple lad who only wants to tend his melon patch. Until one day he hears the voice of a god calling his name. A small god, to be sure. But bossy as Hell. Religion is a competitive business in the Discworld. Everyone has their own opinion and their own gods, of every shape and size--all fighting for faith, followers, and a place at the top. So when the great god Om accidentally manifests himself as a lowly tortoise, stripped of all divine power, it's clear he's become less important than he realized. In such instances, you need an acolyte, and fast. Enter Brutha, the Chosen One--or at least the only One available. He wants peace, justice and love--but that's hard to achieve in a world where religion means power, and corruption reigns supreme. The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Small Gods is a standalone.

Author Biography:

TERRY PRATCHETT is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already'. He was appointed OBE in 1998. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, The Bromeliad, is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, "The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents," was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal.
