Great humor, great narrator. But this book switches characters and setting in the middle of sentences with no information on the new characters. I've went over ten minutes trying to figure out why one character would be saying that and it's a totally new character.
Good Omens really feels like a collaboration between Douglas Adams and Mark Twain. I am certain I will listen to this many times. I wish it could go for days and days. Martin Jarvis is brilliant. Each of his voices has its own distinct character. The Metatron sounds EXACTLY like Bill Nighy and made me want to watch his movies... Gaiman and Pratchett are just as amazing as they always are. I am more familiar with Gaiman, so I don't know how the collaboration affected things. This is the first review I have written here, so I apologize for gushing... But I haven't loved a book this much in a long time.
LOVE this book and Martin Jarvis's narration makes it even better with his voice acting. This is a great stand alone book and a good place to start if you are thinking of getting into Pratchett or Gaiman!
This story is a great listen! The reader is perfect, does an excellent job. So many great books are rendered mediocre or even awful by untalented or unsuitable readers.
Loved the characters: reluctant angel and demon called upon to play their parts in Armageddon. Missing and confused Antichrist accompanied by his... Re-purposed hell-hound, and many other colorful figures all clambering eagerly, panicking or shuffling indifferently toward the end of days.
This book remains one of my favourites. A seamless collaboration, and just as fresh now as when it was first published. The humour is brilliant, and the fun poked at everything from popular culture to religion to human foibles is brilliant.
