Good Omens | [Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett]

Good Omens

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.

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)

    "Do yourself a favor..."

    Clever book, but over-written - Do yourself a favor and purchase the abridged version - Not a disappointment, just clunky

    "Where is Stephen Briggs?"

    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.

    "What???HuH??"

    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.

    "Not funny"

    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.
