And.. "He" was Who ?

I like to think it's anyone who gets a bit too full of themselves.

The real quotation is a bit different.

It's from a book of his called 'The Colour of Magic'

"Let's just say that if complete and utter chaos was lightning, he'd be the
sort to stand on a hilltop in a thunderstorm wearing wet copper armour and
shouting 'All gods are *******s'."

The first book of his was written at some very young age..around fifteen, I

It's fun. He's unpretentious and great for kids of all ages.

Tom Sharpe is funnier, but in a different way.
