`Deftly weaves themes of forgiveness, belief and spiritual regeneration` The Times

The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .

`Just because you can`t explain it, doesn`t mean it`s a miracle.`

In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was: `Hey, you!` This is the Discworld, after all, and religion is a controversial business.

Everyone has their own opinion, and indeed their own gods, of every shape and size, and all elbowing for space at the top. In such a competitive environment, shape and size can be pretty crucial to make one`s presence felt.

So it`s certainly not helpful to be reduced to appearing in the form of a tortoise, a manifestation far below god-like status in anyone`s book.

In such instances, you need an acolyte, and fast: for the Great God Om, Brutha the novice is the Chosen One – or at least the only One available. He wants peace and justice and brotherly love. He also wants the Inquisition to stop torturing him now, please . . .
