One of the Discworld novels that doesn t belong to any character sub series Small Gods is nevertheless one of the best ones I ve read so farTerry Pratchett was a humanist That is to say he wasn t religious He apparently distinguished between religion as in religious institutions such as The Church and faith as in what people believe in their own hearts and minds and was especially critical of the former I m much the same Personally I find religion silly period It has had its place in the evolution of mankind surely but not nowadays And yet look around I keep hearing people talk about all the good this or that person or institution is doing for religious reasons and maybe some are but they are not the norm and many do it for ulterior reasons anyway eg wanting to get recognition for what they are doing or being afraid of some form of hell or whateverThis and are points Sir Terry is addressing in this book as wellWe meet Brutha a novice in the temple of the Great God Om The problem Well for starters Brutha might be honest to a fault and have an impeccable memory but he also just wants peace which he is unlikely to get to enjoy since he s been chosen as the new Prophet And then there is the tiny problem of The Great God Om who is speaking to Brutha currently being trapped in the body of a cute little tortoiseIn a world full of gods and saints and whatnot with almost everyone believing something else they have to find a way to restore Om to His Former Glory and possibly make things a little better in Brutha s home country and some neighbouring ones as wellAuthoritarian systems the Discworld version of the Inuisition gods saints demons lions eagles philosophers priests and some mysterious monks safeguarding history The reader gets a wide cast of characters that are all tragically funny and always spot on when it comes to condemning wilfull ignorance and promoting free will Pratchett nails it with his snarky and bone dry observations on religious upbringing I should know because despite being an atheisthumanist I was born into a Roman Catholic family In his signature funny and light way he shows how these oppressive systems work often so that those trapped in them don t even realize it Moreover he makes valid points such as that either you do nice good things because you want to and because it s the right thing to do or you shouldn t bother However despite all that the book is never preachy see what I did there P or boring On the contrary the mad romp through several hitherto unseen countries on the disc was delightful
