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)

    "great story, not so great performance"

    I loved the story, it was great. I just dont like the way martin jarvis did the kids voices. It didnt sound like kids more like a group elderly dementia patients. I will probably buy another audible book by Neil Gaiman or Terry Pratchett as long as Martin Jarvis doesn't read it.

    "Some of the finest tounge and cheek story telling"

    Absolutely brilliant. I will say as an audio book, this one takes more undivided attention than most due to frequent character switching marked only by brief silences. Either way, I highly highly reccomend this story

    "Perfection!"
    If you could sum up Good Omens in three words, what would they be?

    It is as if Douglas Adams met up with Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett to write this gem. Loved every minute of it. If you like any of the these writers you will love this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adam Young. Loved that the narrator chose to voice an 11 year old boy as if he was a pompous banker.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with Azeaphael (sp?) and Crowley


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes

    "Marvelously Entertaining!"

    This was an amazing story! I usually listen to audio books that I've already read to keep my mind occupied while working or doing childcare tasks. This is the first fiction I've listened to first and I'm so glad I did! The narrator, Martin Jarvis, brought the entire story to life. For those who appreciate sardonic humored and satirical prose tackling theological dilemmas, I highly recommend this fantastic romp!

    Story
    "It's funny, it's British HA!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would, if they like Hitchhikers Guide or something similar.


    What other book might you compare Good Omens to and why?

    I haven't come across one similar. I venture into this genre on rare occasions. Hitchhikers is a similar comedic style. Not content.


    What about Martin Jarvis’s performance did you like?

    His performance was ok. I did read a review before I got the book about his pauses between ideas/chapters. He needed to pause a little bit longer to separate ideas. But since i read that I was looking for it, which made it easier for me.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Hell yes!


    Any additional comments?

    The book got a little bit long towards the end. It was good but there was a point where i felt tired. However, push through cause the end is really good and totally worth it. :)

    Any additional comments?

    It was entertaining but a bit slow and required a lot of British context to fully appreciate. I don't think I laughed out loud but I smiled a few times.

    Absolutely original, full of humor and oddities that without a doubt will push your imagination over the edge. This plus "Neverwhere" have both been excellent new reading material for me. You won't be disappointed!

    "Perfect"

    I adored Good Omens. It's hard to not worry when someone performs your favorite book; Will they get it right? Will the jokes still be funny? Will the voices sound distinguishable from one another? Will you still love the book when you're on the other side of the recording of it?

    Yes.
