Publisher Comments:

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.

About the Author

Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular living authors in the world. His first story was published when he was thirteen, and his first full-length book when he was twenty. He worked as a journalist to support the writing habit, but gave up the day job when the success of his books meant that it was costing him money to go to work.

The Great God Om gets religion! Classic Discworld hilarity, with some sharp commentary on fundamentalism and compassion.

Terry Pratchett has an inate ability to disguise profound observations as pure, whimsical fantasy. This book is awesome.

Thoughtful, satirical and profound, Pratchett casts a lovingly critical eye on all aspects of religion, including piety, conversion and even atheism. This call to examine the ways and means of humanly-developed belief structures should be added to the reading lists of every comparative religions, theology, philosophy and world studies class. I especially love casting Om as a turtle, though Pratchett’s obvious exclusion of females as a whole (except for Brutha’s influential though long-passed Grandmother) is less endearing.
