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)

    "Enjoyable"

    in general, I'm a fan of both authors, so I was excited to listen to this one. After finishing it, I can't say I loved it, but I did enjoy it. I think what kept me from falling in love was the fact that each character still had a lot of story to tell, they were all incredibly interesting, but not enough time in which to do so. Honestly, I would have really loved for this to have been an epic vs a standard novel.

    As far as the narration went, I liked it. I think he did a very good job of giving each person a specific sound so you could instantly tell who was talking. My only problem lies in the specific sound that he chose for a few of them, namely Red and Adam.

    Over all, it's worth a listen. It just left me wanting more, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    "Love this novel."

    This is the book that introduced me to Neil and Terry, two of my favorite authors. Both authors are better on their own than they are together but even together they are better than most. (Why does England produce the best authors? Must be something in the tea..)

    "Brilliant."

    Have read this book numerous times and loved it every time. It was a nice change to hear it read by Martin Jarvis with all the voices. Lots of chuckles.

    "Unabridged seemed abridged."

    It was missing a few paragraphs here and there and several times a single line. Just enough to be noticeable.

    "Essential Listening"

    This is the best thing I've heard on audible so far. The performance was amazing. The story was so good I might just buy a copy of the book as well.

    "Just too "British""

    I've never read Terry Pratchett, but he had made a name for himself. I've read a few books by Neil Gaiman and loved them all...so I had high hopes for this book. Boy, was I disappointed. I didn't even finish the book.

    If you could describe something as being "Too British", this would be it. The story was just too dry and it kept side tracking with little fictional anecdotes which I guess are suppose to be witty (think Monte Python) but just come of as unfunny and silly.

    In the end, the book just wasn't for me
