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)

    "Uneven, but the good parts are great"

    I would have rated it lower, but the ending bumped it up a star.

    Jarvis' narration was as always top notch.

    "Absolutely Hilarious!"
    Would you listen to Good Omens again? Why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Beautiful Narration"

    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.

    "One of my favorite books of all-time!"

    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!

    "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!

    Story
    "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!
