    The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

    Of course, "Good Omens" is an easy choice for any shopper. If you haven't read it before or especially if you have, the audiobook is a pleasure to listen to!

    Once I heard Martin Jarvis reading in the character's voices, I can no longer imagine their voices any other way. Jarvis hits the nail on the head with Aziraphale's mild personality and Crowley's "flash bastard" attitude.

    My only problem is the lack of a distinct pause between scene changes. As the book does this often, I quickly got used to paying attention to the new scene. It would certainly not dissuade me from buying the audiobook.
