©1990 Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett; (P)2009 HarperCollins Publishers
"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)
This book is dated and you have to listen to a lot of boring blather to get to the story. I'd say Neil Gaiman must have written a sketchy plot outline and Terry Pratchett filled in the rest. Not worth the time. An very young adolescent boy might enjoy it.
Absolutely not. I will just stick to books written by Gaiman without a co-writer.
I like the performance very much. A good reader. Not too slow or overdramatic.
I suppose some would find it clever, but it's not clever enough to make up for the excessive verbiage that does not move the story forward.
I really wanted to like this book because I love Neil Gaiman, and I really did give it a good shot, but it just wasn't worth the time.
Loved it! Read this book years ago and wanted to reread it, but didn't have the time. Audible made it possible and the narrator was excellent!
Funny, very well-written and the narrator is excellent.
Martin Jarvis is an excellent narrator. HIs use of various accents, inflections are brilliant and he has an excellent sense of timing.
A great story, but the narrator steals the show. The various characters could have been generated by a dozen voice actors, but alas there was only one!
