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...

    "Brilliantly Read!"

    I love this book and have read it in paperback so many times that it was getting quite dog-eared. However, having it read to me by the brilliant Stephen Briggs made it a far richer and more-involving experience. It's a great adaptation and I listened every moment I could, even in the bath. Highly recommended.

    "Apocalyptic Fun"

    Funnier and better written than The Omen this is a brilliant take on angels, demons, witch-finders, witches, prophets and of course the anti-christ.

    Pratchett and Gaiman created a wonderful (if demonic) baby together. There are definite echoes of the Discworld in some of the characters - which is all to the good - even if this is firmly rooted on Earth.

    Some truly brilliant concepts and a great story.

    "A very enjoyable listen"

    This is a great book if you are new to Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman as it offers the best of both authors, humour and existential angst. I would say it crosses all boundaries and it would be a bit narrow minded just to be placed in the SF category.

    As to the narration Stephen Briggs walks a fine between engaging and over acting, however, it is still excellent. Each character is well delivered and you know who is speaking by the deft change of his accent.

    All in all this is a great book to read but also a great book to listen to. If you are considering either author but have never come across their work this is a good, easy, starter to get into. If you like this book then you should explore other Pratchett books as they are of a similar vein.

    "A Classic"

    I first read this book many years ago and loved it so much that I by re-reading the paperback it fell apart. The combination of two of the best fantasy/sci-fi/comic/humours writers of the modern age means that this is class from beginning to end. There is not a character in this book that I cannot get a clear picture of in my head and Stephen Briggs' tone and reading style really bring this book to life. Hopefully, I won't break this copy by wearing it out and will be going back to it again and again as I did in the paper back version.

    "Finally, a good non-Discworld Pratchett"

    I've been so put off by the Long Earth and the Dodger that I've had doubts about this one too - it looked like the Discworld was Pratchett I liked, and the rest was a bit duh.

    I am glad to say I was wrong; think Discworld mixed with American Gods, and you'll know what I mean.

    OK, it's a bit straightforward in places, but what do you want from a piece of SciFi about the apocalypse?

    An enjoyable listen, and long may it continue.

    "Usual high standard"

    Again not disappointed by the narrator. The story line we found fascinating and quite believable. Totally engaged with the audio book and found it utterly absorbing.

    "Synergy"

    I’ve read books by Pratchett and Gaiman and I think that this is better than both. I have heard it more than twice and I laugh at something new each time. My family thinks that I’m losing it.

    "Mixed feelings"

    This is one of my favourite books, and I have enjoyed Stephen Briggs readings of other Terry Pratchett titles. Something jarred this time though - partly, I suppose, because I had my own ideas of how the characters should sound (especially Adam - the Just William tone is completely missing here), but more because the different strands seemed to get muddled and difficult to tell apart. I think this may be a book that needs more than one narrator, to reflect the different points of view - the BBC radio production of Nation did this very successfully.

    "An excellent partnership"

    I've been a big fan of Terry Pratchett for years, and have read a few of Neil Gaiman's books too which I really enjoyed. I was curious to see what this book would be like and certainly wasn't disappointed - full of the usual Pratchett humour. A great listen - thanks of course in large part to the narrator Stephen Briggs whose tone and style seem to suit this novel very well.

    "Excellent version"

    A world apart from the usual discworld novels this is a superb novel read in inimitable style by Stephen Briggs. Normally I listen to the books a bit at a time last thing at night. I cleared this one in a couple of days.

    A joint venture by Terry Pratchet and Neil Gaiman this was well worth the credit.
