Monstrous Regiment book. Terry Pratchett’s 31st Discworld novel, first published in 2003, is somewhat of a departure from the other series. Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett deals with several of the seven deadly sins, namely pride, greed and wrath.

Also "lesser" sins like stupidity, ignorance, misogyny and bigotry. It's a wonderful book!
