It'll make you laugh, it'll make you think. It'll make you look differently at turtles, at the very least.

There are some books that make you rethink things in a massive way. This one is one of them. The book opened my mind to the boundaries between faith, religion, and the religious. It shaped my understanding in this matter in a way that still holds today, nearly 20 years after I first picked it up. Heck, I even referenced it during my university studies, much to the awe and surprise of the lecturer who heard it (He never expected this sort of thinking from an undergrad).
But even if you don't need to have someone shatter your world, even if this stuff is clear to you, this is still a ridiculously funny, heartfelt, and interesting book to read. It will take you on a journey across desserts and seas along with a boy and a turtle and a whole lot of characters, from crypto-atheists to waterlogged philosophers to people up poles and steam powered turtles.
It's a Discworld novel, and a wonder.
Just pick it up and you'll see what I mean.
