This time Pratchett takes a sharp, funny jab at organised religion. In the city-state of Omnia, ruled by a theocracy, young novice Brutha hears a voice that no one else is able to, and coming from a tortoise, no less. Brutha may not be as clever and power hungry as Vorbis, nor is he considered to be very clever, but he has a talent that no one else does, and the Great God Om needs someone -- anyone to belief in him if he is to evade a fate that even a god fears... Great good fun, and some serious things to think about as well. Four stars overall, and a must read for Discworld fans.
