    "This is a great solution to the topic. It has many great reviews and is in the series Discworld. While it is subjective to which is the best book in a series this one does seem to fit the criteria to many. "

    "Wanna read a brilliant,funny story about "Religion" vs "Faith"? This is the book for you. Terry Pracchett's "Small Gods" skewers organized religion with a Discworld Tale about Brutha, the last True Believer in the Great God Om who, due to lack of faith, has been reduced to the form of a small tortoise. Om needs Brutha's help and the sincere, loyal initiate will gladly help his deity and maybe teach HIM a lesson in humanity."

    "One of my favorite Discworld books. Very funny and reminiscent of Monty Python. Great writing by author Terry Pratchett. There is some very creative storytelling in this book. It is a satirical take on the classic tale of going out to save a princess in a distant land. I don't want to spoil too much, but I enjoyed this one very much."

    "It's impossible to pick just one great Discworld book. Guards! Guards! could certainly be in the running, and not just because of the dietary habits of noble dragons. I remember when I first read this, I was on my second wife. She was a larger woman, and it took months to finish the last of her. Guards! Guards! kept me motivated to carry on, even when I feared the honey bbq wouldn't be sufficient. Yummy all around, this one."
