In between papers and all the school reading, a bit of lighter fare: Small Gods by Terry Pratchett.

The novel is one of his Discworld books - he has about 40 of them, I think.

The usual: Humor, good-natured satire on our world (in this case, religion and international relations, as well as digs at philosophers), DEATH TALKING ALL IN CAPITALS,  and so on.

I love that the main "god" in the book is a tortoise, a cranky one-eyed one, and that the force of reason is a man regarded by others as a fool.

Heavy reading? No. But quite enjoyable.

Pax et bonum
