©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)
Writing is solid. Great British humour. The audio is awesome. If you are a fan of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy television miniseries and/or Monty Python, you enjoy this production. British accent, does character voices.
Great humor and storyline. The voices were nicely done, unexpected at times. Could envision the story and characters. I would normally listen to this while driving long hauls and would often laugh out loud! Highly enjoyable story.
Good Omens is one of the first Terry Pratchett books I had the pleasure to read, and remains one of my very favorites.
Blending Pratchett's wry wit with Neil Gaiman's incomparable ability to write modern stories with the depth and wonder of 3,000-yr old myths, Good Omens is fun, thoughtful and frankly hilarious.
The performance is excellent, with just the right tone of wry British humor for the story.
Wonderful on all counts.
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Good Omens is now definitely one of my favorite books. This is a fantastic story read by a good narrator who makes characters easily distinguished from each other.
As usual, Neil Gaiman has again created an amazing world that is amusing and thought provoking. He always finds a way to twist the world we think we know, into something completely new. This time he takes us on a wild ride with religion; where we find that good and evil are two sides of the same coin. Extremely enjoyable listen.
Great book written by the masters of whatever genres they want to write. Reader obviously also loves the book and gives it perfect pitch. Highly recommended.

Started out really funny. But the longer the story went, the more repetitive and padded it felt. Relieved when I finally reached the end.
This book introduced me go both. Gaiman and Pratchett and is both funny and interesting. I really like the idea of two agents far from their bosses becoming more similar to each other then to their respective ideologies. Like two cold was spies in a far flung country becoming friends.
Originally given to me by a friend. This book has become one of my favorite books of all time. The writing is funny upbeat and informative. The narration is spot on with characters you'll remember for the rest of your life. Highly recommended for all ages.
