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)

    Story
    "Expecting Neil Gaiman, got adolescent blather."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.


    Has Good Omens turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely not. I will just stick to books written by Gaiman without a co-writer.


    Have you listened to any of Martin Jarvis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I like the performance very much. A good reader. Not too slow or overdramatic.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "One of my favorites."

    I have always lobed this book since I first discovered it. What a pleasure to be able to listen to it during down times at work.

    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!

    Would you listen to Good Omens again? Why?

    Funny, very well-written and the narrator is excellent.


    What about Martin Jarvis’s performance did you like?

    Martin Jarvis is an excellent narrator. HIs use of various accents, inflections are brilliant and he has an excellent sense of timing.

    "Outstanding! "

    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!
