©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)
Clever book, but over-written - Do yourself a favor and purchase the abridged version - Not a disappointment, just clunky
I loved this book when I read it! It was OK to listen to, but not the same. I think Stephen Briggs would have done a much better job. Or even Nigel Planer.
Still a good listen.
This was such a disapointment. I am a big Neil Gaiman fan, but this book was so difficult to follow. Sometimes I think some books do not translate well to Audio, and for me this book is a prime example.
I was looking for something funny and after reading some of the reviews and ratings, got this. It wasn't funny. I stuck with it for a few hours hoping it would take a turn but then I had to quit and get something else. If you want funny, try Christopher Moore's "A Dirty Job" or "Fool". I haven't written reviews for those but I had to write one for this one to spare you the trouble of buying this Gaiman book. I actually laughed out loud with the Moore books.
