Terry Pratchett is a well-known humourist, satirist and a fantasy author.

His book “Small Gods” is proof of how much heavy thinking he puts in his work.

Where do gods come from? Where do they go? What keeps them moving? Gods do not like these sorts of questions.

And people who think are not what gods look for in followers.

People who believe blindly is what gives gods power. What happens when a great god loses all his believers, then?

That is the premise of this story- of the great God Om and how he became a tortoise for three years.

A lot of readers saw this book as an attack on religion. Some saw it as a defense of personal faith. What the book definitely is, is that it is very good.
