Small GodsThe Great God Om manifests himself as a tortoise and finds himself stranded in the garden of brother Brutha, his only remaining believer. Brutha is a simple soul but has a perfect memory and is forced to accompany the chief inquisitor on a military mission to the neighbouring country of philosophers, where he begins to learn the power of rational thought over religious tyranny.

I read this one because of that bloke in the Guardian who criticised Pratchett for being shallow and meaningless, but then admitted he had never actually read any of his books. He then read Small Gods and changed his mind a bit. I read it and thought it all a bit dull, not very funny. The philosophers were quite good.
