I've loved this book since I first read it, and listening to the audio is a treat. Crowley is perfect and Aziraphale is close enough. The sections with them are hilarious, and the narrator captures their relationship perfectly. It makes up for the fact that Brian is the only 11 year old whose voice I can even stand. Adam, who we hear a lot from because he's, well, IMPORTANT, sounds like the same voice Martin Jarvis used for Adam's father in the very beginning. Every time I'm listening to any of Adam's parts, I have to remind myself that he's not 45 with a pipe.
As others have noted, the lack of pause between scene switches can throw you if you're not paying attention.
That said, I'm glad I bought it as I can certainly see listening to favorite (non-Adam) parts over again.
love it and good by to tarry prachit you will be missed by many so good by.
I live in Columbia Maryland not Columbia Moldova! I haven't turned into a Groucho Marx character yet.
I haven't laughed consistently throughout a novel from beginning to and as far back as I can remember. The story is exquisitely but mundanely and seriously funny while the narrator does a perfect job stylizing each character. If you grew up in the Catholic Church as I did, this novel will hit every funny bone that was once a sacrosanct sacred body appendage but now is ready to relax and have a good laugh.
Very well crafted. More enjoyable than expected. The clever twists incorporated into the story, as well as the entertaining characters make this a must read!
Pratchett and Gaiman form a wonderful team, and this certainly felt like true Pratchett humor through and through. Witty, sarcastic, and, above all, original, this one kept me hooked. What's more, the repertoire between Crowley and Aziraphale is borderline genius. Can't recommend it enough!
I read this book years ago, but listening to it on Audible made it even better! I didn't think it was possible! I would give it 10 stars if I could!
Even if you have already read this book, do yourself a favor and listen to this version!
