Brutha is the Chosen One. His god has spoken to him, admittedly while currently in the shape of a tortoise.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...Please note: This is a vintage recording.

"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)

Not really like the other Discworld books
Definitely. I've yet to find a Terry Pratchett book I haven't loved, and would do anything I can do to expose others to how great the Discworld books are.
It deals with possibly controversial subject matter in a way that is very thought provoking, and exposes readers to different viewpoints.
This book made me laugh quite frequently. There are also a few bits which are quite sad
It's quite clearly still set in the Discworld universe, yet manages to feel quite different by featuring unique characters and settings. I believe it's also set in the past of the main Discworld books.
Enjoyed it very much
