Yes, it's so incredibly funny and I feel like I am only getting about 2/3 of the jokes. Would go back to catch the rest of it.
This was my first Terry Pratchett book, and I am definitely hooked. He is so witty and insightful. Next I will be starting on some of the Discworld series.
So many go on about this author but I don't know why. It was my first and last book of his. I pushed through to the end and just when I thought it was done...it added a bit more. I pulled my ear phones out...I just couldn't take it anymore. Almost want to ask for my credit back.
The best thing is the best and most versatile narration I've heard on audible and the story is equal parts whimsical and delightfully dark. It starts slow but builds to a very satisfying story to listen to.
This is one of my absolute favorite books. It's packed with hilarious, unexpected, dry humor. I don't like to read or listen to books a second time almost ever, but this one never gets old. Totally unlike anything you've read!
I highly recommend this story, and I particularly like this performance. The reader is spot on, and very entertaining, while the story is original, engaging, funny and well written. Good Omens narrated by Martin Jarvis is true delight, and I've listened to it many times.
If you love dry humor of the classic British style, if you love Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, you will not be disappointed. Martin Jarvis' rendition is a pleasure to listen to; he brings life to the characters and treats the whole story as I believe the authors would have done themselves. WONDERFUL!
A bit of a slow start, but absolutely worth it. I bought the physical copy and ended up not having the time to sit and read it, and I'm actually glad about it! The narrator is delightfully versatile.
The character design is unique and colorful.
The funny and clever bits always brought a smile to my face. The serious parts brought a smile to my face. This is a lovely story about humanity and how the core elements that make a child childlike (wonder, imagination, honesty, kindness) can be lost completely as one grows older and gets caught up in settling with the "that's how things are" mindset that's so easy to settle into. A very heartwarming story, and not painfully cliché or overdone (which is hard to find). I didn't dislike a thing about it!
