Toll the Hounds by Steven Erikson
"I have no choice but to give it at least five stars! This is an author who never stops to grow and continues to thug on every emotion I am capable of and some new ones I had no idea I was capable of. If you are a fan of Fantasy, on the darker side..." Read more of this review »
Rinaldo and 39 other people liked Trish's review of Small Gods (Discworld, #13):
Small Gods by Terry Pratchett
"One of the Discworld novels that doesn't belong to any character sub-series, Small Gods is nevertheless one of the best ones I've read so far.

Terry Pratchett was a humanist. That is to say, he wasn't religious. He apparently distinguished between..." Read more of this review »
Rinaldo and 71 other people liked Lyn's review of Small Gods (Discworld, #13):
Small Gods by Terry Pratchett
"One of Pratchett’s best Discworld novels.

Pratchett delivers a brilliant parody of religion in this early (the 13th) standalone. In the land of Omnia, the great god Om is worshiped and all who don’t are subject to the Quisition – a satire of the po..." Read more of this review »

4.5/5

It's official now, I've lost my Discworld virginity. To be slightly pedantic, Small Gods wasn't technically my first Terry Pratchett book; it was Good Omens, but that one was co-written with Neil Gaiman, so I am not sure whether it counts. Suffi

Small Gods by Terry Pratchett
“Om sighed. ‘It’s reasonable, isn’t it? Think about it. The stronger ones hang around the edge, where there’s prey … I mean, people. The weak ones get pushed out to the sandy places, where people hardly ever go—’
‘The strong gods,’ said Brutha, thoughtfully. ‘Gods that know about being strong.’
‘That’s right.’ ‘Not gods that know what it feels like to be weak …’
‘What? They wouldn’t last five minutes. It’s a god-eat-god world.’
‘Perhaps that explains something about the nature of gods. Strength is hereditary. Like sin.”

“Anyway, I’m a bit worried about the screw. It was invented to move water along, not move along on water.’
‘You mean it’s confused?’ said Simony.
‘Screwed up,’ said Didactylos happily.”

“When you been dead, everything after that’s looking up.”
Steven Erikson, The Crippled God

Steven Erikson
“It is only the dumb beast that understands futile gestures – the cold necessity for them, in the face of all the hard truths. We who hold to the higher aspirations of the intellect, we surrender too quickly. And yet, in looking upon that dog – a creature knowing only loyalty and courage – we find flavours to wound our own souls.”
Steven Erikson, The Crippled God

Terry Pratchett
“You don’t want people to be kind to animals because they’re animals, you just want people to be kind to animals because one of them might be you.”
