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
    "A charming balance between adult and child fiction"

    Neil Gaiman (Coraline) and Terry Pratchett (Discworld) team up much like Crowley and Azerafeal to deliver a delightful story dripping with British humor. It may not be the most complex story but it is rich and most importantly will make you think and feel like a kid again and believe in the possibility of innocence.

    "Loved it"

    Very funny story. Had to "back up" for a few one liners because the pop up so fast. Jarvis does a marvelous job narrating. Wouldn't change a thing.

    "Fun tale, amazing performance"

    A take on Armageddon that is interesting and entertaining, told with wit and cleverness. The vocal performance is one of the best I've heard - adds another level of quality.

    "Author and narrator have created a fantastic experience"

    The most well done reading and consistency with character voices I've heard on Audible so far. Pleasure to listen to. Great story, made me belly laugh a handful of times and smile often.

    Story
    "Life. Don't talk to me about life..."

    It can be hard coming down from Douglas Adams. Not knowing where to turn after the simple and humorous practicality of Adams' perspective.
    Neil filled the void, for me at least, with a very similar perspective of smile truths portrayed entertainingly. While this didn't expand the philosophy in my mind (not much there to expand really), it did continue the fun in a new light. It's like reading just another personal development book and realizing it says the same damn thing the last one you read had to say, but is somehow just as life changing, or influencing as the last seemed.

    In any case, fun, happy feelings coming from a beautifully read story. Thank you...

    "Excellent"

    Pratchett and Gaiman managed to use their uniquely illogical logic to make a madcap story which is both hilarious and thought-provoking.

    Martin Jarvis is a great narrator. Not only does he have an easy-to-listen-to voice but he takes obvious care with the story and really brings it to life.

    It really is that good. And listening to the audio book was a great choice. It really only added to the story.

    Story
    "Hilarious, insightful, thrilling.."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman have harmoniously constructed a beautiful novel that is as enchanting as it is funny. The clever way they've twisted mythology into narrative is entertaining and provocative. The characters are wonderfully affable and the story is engaging. This is a great read on its own and the spectacular narration makes it even better.


    What about Martin Jarvis’s performance did you like?

    Absolutely everything. He has an amazing knack for accents and the variety he achieves in intonation with all the different characters is remarkable. He's the best performer I've listened to with Audible as of yet.
