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)

    "Thrice Widdershins"

    Beautifully crafted tale of omnipotence, omniscience, and the hilarity of trying to control the universe. Mr. Jarvis is a skilled narrator and truly brings the story to life. Highly recommend.

    "Truly splendid!"

    If the Coen brothers did the book of revelations. Martin Jarvis is brilliant. Massive props to both Mr. Gaiman and Mr. Pratchett on such exquisite and delightful story telling.

    "Rollicking, irreverent fun"

    Neil Gaiman has quickly become one of my favorite authors. If you haven't already, get Gaiman's "American Gods" next.

    "A quality reading of a superb book"

    To me, this book is so brilliant and so magical that it would be hard to do it justice in an audio format but Jarvis makes an excellent attempt and generally succeeds. I would say it's better read the physical book if you have the opportunity but this audio book is still very well done.
    Apologies for my purist bent; in having read the physical book first I struggled to adjust to Jarvis' interpretation of what the characters should sound like. I have grown to love it but it took a few listens and to my ears his Adam is still off. Not enough to keep me from repeat listens though.

    "Loved it!"

    One of the best thing I love about reading is an author's writing style and in this there's a collaboration of two great writers! This was a non stop read for me.

    "Need to read again"

    I think that I was too distracted when I listened to this book to give it proper credit. I'm going to try and give it another go when I have time to pay adequate attention.

    "Crowley Makes Up for Everything"

    I've loved this book since I first read it, and listening to the audio is a treat. Crowley is perfect and Aziraphale is close enough. The sections with them are hilarious, and the narrator captures their relationship perfectly. It makes up for the fact that Brian is the only 11 year old whose voice I can even stand. Adam, who we hear a lot from because he's, well, IMPORTANT, sounds like the same voice Martin Jarvis used for Adam's father in the very beginning. Every time I'm listening to any of Adam's parts, I have to remind myself that he's not 45 with a pipe.

    As others have noted, the lack of pause between scene switches can throw you if you're not paying attention.

    That said, I'm glad I bought it as I can certainly see listening to favorite (non-Adam) parts over again.

    I live in Columbia Maryland not Columbia Moldova! I haven't turned into a Groucho Marx character yet.

    "A Masterpiece"

    I haven't laughed consistently throughout a novel from beginning to and as far back as I can remember. The story is exquisitely but mundanely and seriously funny while the narrator does a perfect job stylizing each character. If you grew up in the Catholic Church as I did, this novel will hit every funny bone that was once a sacrosanct sacred body appendage but now is ready to relax and have a good laugh.
