Description

Brutha is the Chosen One. His god has spoken to him, admittedly while currently in the shape of a tortoise.

Brutha is a simple lad. He can't read. He can't write. He's pretty good at growing melons. And his wants are few.

He wants to overthrow a huge and corrupt church. He wants to prevent a horribly holy war. He wants to stop the persecution of a philosopher who has dared to suggest that, contrary to the Church's dogma, the Discworld really does go through space on the back of an enormous turtle. (Which is true, but when has that ever mattered?) He wants peace and justice and brotherly love. He wants the Inquisition to stop torturing him now, please.

But most of all, what he really wants, more than anything else, is for his god to choose someone else...

Critiques

"Pratchett is the funniest parodist working in the field today, period." (The New York Review of Science Fiction)
"Terry Pratchett is simply the best humorous writer of the 20th century. Wodehouse, Waugh, Sharpe, etc. all have their merits, sometimes considerable, but Pratchett really is a cut above the rest." (Oxford Times)

Certainly one of Sir Terry's best ever!

Nigel Planer was born to read Pratchett, the characters come ALIVE. Sir Terry's wit and imagination are, as always, superb.

interesting story, excellent narration by Nigel, the story was mabye a bit too much here and there and a few too many characters to keep tabs on. God is good though...

Not really like the other Discworld books

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely. I've yet to find a Terry Pratchett book I haven't loved, and would do anything I can do to expose others to how great the Discworld books are.

What did you like best about this story?

It deals with possibly controversial subject matter in a way that is very thought provoking, and exposes readers to different viewpoints.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me laugh quite frequently. There are also a few bits which are quite sad

Any additional comments?

It's quite clearly still set in the Discworld universe, yet manages to feel quite different by featuring unique characters and settings. I believe it's also set in the past of the main Discworld books.

Enjoyed it very much

I'm glad I found this. No real complaints. Brutha's voice was exactly as I'd imagined.

5 stars all round

This is one of my favourite Discworld novels. Nigel Planer is EXCELLENT at different voices and accents and brings the whole story to life.

So good

I am a huge fan of Discworld and am currently re-living them through audiobook. This was so much fun to listen to. Nigel Planer does a great job narrating. I am looking forward to listening to the rest of the series.

somewhat confusing...

What did you like best about Small Gods? What did you like least?

i found this perticular story to be quite confusing, but i admit that it might be because it took me a long time to get through the book and i only got to listen to it for short amounts of time at any given time so that might be why i had trouble following the story

Would you be willing to try another book from Terry Pratchett? Why or why not?

i've read or listened to almost all of his books so indeed yes :)

What about Nigel Planer’s performance did you like?

Nigel has a good strong voice that i never get annoyed with or tired of listening to

Was Small Gods worth the listening time?

no, but like i said, that might be due to real life making me unable to follow my usual listening habits

Eines der besten Bücher Pratchetts

Die Geschichte um den Propheten Brutha ist eine der besten, die Pratchetts Feder entsprungen ist. Der Sprecher ist ebenfalls sehr gut, die Stimmen sind sehr unterschiedlich und sofort wiedererkennbar, auch wenn es etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig ist, daß der Prophet einer Wüstenreligion einen schottischen Akzent hat.
Was zur Abwertung führt, ist die Tonqualität. Die gesamte Aufnahme klingt extrem dumpf, was aber scheinbar bei mehreren älteren Pratchett-Aufnahmen der Fall ist, bedauerlicherweise.

Super Hörbuch, schlechte Audioqualität

Ich bin gerade dabei die Scheibenwelt Reihe durchzuhören und habe mir jetzt zum testen ein englisches Hörbuch runtergeladen. Der Sprecher ist gut, die Geschichte genial. Ich werde mir aber keine englischen Pratchett Hörbücher mehr holen, da die Audioqualität schlecht ist, sehr schlecht wenn man bedenkt das es sich hierbei nicht um ein Nischenbuch handelt. Dann doch lieber zur deutschen Übersetzung greifen, die haben wenigstens gute Qualität.

Very good as expected

The readers accent was very lovely, however the soundquality was a bit grainy.

The story is very good and funny as to be expected from any terry pratchett book.

Great as always

This just might be Terry Pratchets best book, it has everything. I haven't read a book from him for quite some time now, and so i was amazed how great he is. I must confess i had forgotten a little bit. If i could only recomend a few books to read or in this case hear, this would be at the very top. I love it. The one Star i took away is because people who do not speak very good english might not understanding. Buy it anyway, understanding half of this is still better than most other books. Have fun.

Typical Pratchett

Mad story, typical Pratchett, very enjoyable, but it is read too fast. I had to slow it down to 0,75 which slightly changes the voices.

Terry Pratchett at his best

Einer der besten Romane der Disc World-Reihe und SEHR GUT gelesen. Insgesamt aber nur drei Sterne wegen der schlechten Aufnahmequalität (zu blechern und Rauschen, wenn man z.B. im Auto die Lautstärke hochregeln muss).

Tonqualität mangelhaft.

Das Hörbuch klingt meist zu dumpf. Dies trübt den Hörgenuss. Die Geschichte hingegen ist gut und der Sprecher tadellos wie immer.

very up to date

possibly one of the best of Terry Pratchett's discworld stories and certainly up to date with current, ideological developments - sadly.
