Publisher's Summary

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. Put New York Times best-selling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett together...and all Hell breaks loose.

©1990 Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett; (P)2009 HarperCollins Publishers

What the Critics Say

"Pratchett (of Discworld fame) and Gaiman (of Sandman fame) may seem an unlikely combination, but the topic (Armageddon) of this fast-paced novel is old hat to both. Pratchett's wackiness collaborates with Gaiman's morbid humor; the result is a humanist delight to be savored and reread again and again." (Amazon.com review)

    "Fantastic fun 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.

    "Brilliant fiction, humor, and narration!"

    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!

    "Beautiful!"

    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!

    "Best. Book. Ever."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, I recommend it every time I get the chance and often judge friendship potential based on whether or not they can appreciate this kind of humor. It's sneakily profound humor.


    What other book might you compare Good Omens to and why?

    Any book by either Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman is worth reading. American Gods for Gaiman. Any of the Discworld novels for Pratchett.

    "Are you a fan of Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Luis Bunuel, Terrance Malick, Neil Gaiman, and Haruki Murakami? This film is for"

    The hero is no hero, but the land is. The visuals, even before they get triply, are hypnotic and compelling. If you are looking for an out of the ordinary and extraordinarily creative.

    I understand the film was made on a very tight budget and schedule; It never shows. The direction and editing are sure footed, the actors are perfect, the production values are flawless, and the photography and use of light is compelling. I love that it is in black and white , the most abstract, most removed from reality, photographic medium. It forces you to pay attention to the small details. Color would have been, at best, a distraction.

    "The end of the world has never been so much fun!"

    This is one of my favorite books of all time. Chock full of uniquely British humor this book will make even the more dour demon giggle. I find something new and subversively funny every time I give it a go.

    "favorite book to reader"

    I've read this book 6 or 7 times its my favorite.
    it's well written and funny as anything you can read. but I thought the narration was not up to what I had hoped. l may be jaded because I have my own ideas of what the characters should sound, but I thought that the narrator made 11 year old Adam Young sound like a middle aged bank manager.

    Great performance, snarky and rich. Very enjoyable irreverent romp of religious themes and the apocalypse.

    "Loved it."

    Neil Gaiman consistently delivers an interesting story and charming off-color humor. The addition of Terry Pratchett turns it into a brilliantly funny and entertaining story.
