Small Gods was different from the other Terry Pratchett books I've read. It wasn't as easy to get caught up in it because it didn't have some crazy kind of plot. My only opinion about it as I read it was that it was "different." The ending is great. It is a pretty good crack at talking about religion and god and what they all should really look like, and it is also a pretty good description of problems with structured religion.

It makes a lot of sense why he and Neil Gaiman teamed up to write Good Omens, and the same themes in this book kind of form the foundation of American Gods that Gaiman wrote in 2000 (one of the best, of the best I've ever read.)
