Publisher's Summary

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch - the world's only totally reliable guide to the future - the world will end on a Saturday.

Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea...The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the apocalypse are revving up, and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not particularly looking forward to the coming rapture - having thoroughly enjoyed life on earth amongst the mortals.

If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist. There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him...

    "My fav book is a fab audible listen!"
    Would you listen to Good Omens again? Why?

    Yes, it is my fav book I have read and I love all the quirky characters and the world they inhabit. I love everything that happens and that when you get to the end you want to re-read immediately.


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

    I love the diskworld series by Prachett and it has elements of that but also the humour and language found in Gaiman books, if you like anything by these two authors then I highly recommend this book!


    What does Stephen Briggs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Having read the book lots I found it odd that all these voices Briggs was creating were not the way they had sounded in my head, obviously, however after a while I got so use to his versions that I hear them now rather then my own voices. He brings the multitude of various accents and characters alive for me and I loved his voice by the end.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The end of the world is coming but lets have a cuppa first.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this audio version and it is one of those books that even if you don't think one aspect is working or too different from another by the end of the story when it all comes crashing together you realise how perfect it is.

    Story
    "Silly and funny"

    At times (mostly) it has very good humour (laugh out loud) but at other times it becomes a bit detailed and dull. Sometimes it borders with silly. It's not a book you can finish in one reading - as you couldn't read a book of anecdotes for 10 hours... And the longer you listen to it, the sillier it feels, so you need to make pauses rather often to enjoy it again...

    But I have to say the narrator is just amazing! Fits the book very well and feels like he's a born comedian himself. And I totally recommend the audio version - I think he brings the book to life.

    Story
    "Humour of the book w/footnotes does NOT translate"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Nope. This is probably best read from a printed copy of a paper book. The efforts of the narrator were much appreciated and it was a stellar performance. However, much of the humour was lost. I can only give it three stars but cannot help suspecting that the reviewers on amazon.com from the printed version are correct and it is a good book if read from print.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Briggs’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Buy a printed copy, don't get the audiobook on this occasion despite the convenience.

    "Fantastic, so pleased to have stumbled across this"

    I love all the Neil Gaiman books I have listened to so far, I was nervous about this collaboration as I haven't ever gotten as lost in Terry Pratchett stories. I was not disappointed.
    This was so random, funny and an absolute joy to listen to. I will certainly be listening to this again when I need a good laugh and have recommended this to friends already.
    Thank you Mr Pratchett and Mr Bauman.

    "Great fun."

    This book is an ideal accompanying text to the Bible. It corrects all those irritating little errors that are so abound, especially in the Book of Revelations. Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman team up to reveal the prophecies of Agnes Nutter in a hilarious holy text that all true theologians should read. I read this book when it first came out (more than once, actually) and having had that copy stolen-by-loan many years ago, was pleased when I saw that the audio version was available.

    It's probably on one of those "Hundred-Books-To-Read-Before-You-Die" lists somewhere, but I would ignore that and read it anyway.

    Nicely and Accurately narrated.
