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...

One of my top 20
Just as enjoyable as all the Bryant and May books
Impossible to pick, well read.
"One of my most favourite books"
One of my most favourite books read by a childhood hero so I may be bias.
Great story, well constructed, good characters.
The interesting ideas about the devil and his cohorts.
Stephen Briggs brings to life the characters with the voices and the personalities.
"A++++ Absolutely loved it!"
They're both the same story, they're both equally as fabulous as the other! So no, I wouldn't consider it better, but I would consider it VERY convenient and I would consider it the thing that got me through many long, dragging hours of study periods at college without falling asleep. Although... the lovely tiny illustrations on the first letters of each chapter is something you miss out in the audio version, and it's a little strange when the footnotes are being read out and you're left trying to figure out where they were meant to go. Other than that, however, I really can't fault it :D
Is there any other book? How can you compare it to this masterpiece?
There's already so much to experience reading the book, but Briggs brings all the humour and personality that comes with the story, and more, whenever I'm busy doing other stuff or feeling too lazy to pick up the book and read it for myself, thank you Simon Briggs!!
*SPOILER* Probably when Aziraphale's bookshop is up in flames and Crowley rushes in to try and find him. Or maybe the final paragraph of the book, that one really hits my heart every time..
My favourite book of all time (so I'm probably a little bit biased)!
"A bit pointless"
The story is well written and the narration is excellent but there is very little in the way of story drama or character development. It is just basically a whimsical comment on religion and faith. Nice enough but almost boring.
Ok, I may be biased having listen to many of T P's books, but this is excellent. With twists and turns and his sense of humour coming through. A good listen for all ages.
"a great read (listen) like I remembered"
enjoyed listening to it and remembering how much I enjoyed reading the book years ago.
well read by Stephen briggs.
This is one of the best stories ever written, Terry Pratchett rules! great narration! Kudos!
"Great story, quick narration"
I loved the story, it is well written, witty, amusing. The narrator read too quickly for me though. Consequently, I had (as a non-native speaker) difficulties to concentrate and understand every word when I was e.g. in the street or on a bus.
"Classic Pratchett Witt, fantastic!"
An absolute classic, so funny and read very well! it's Pratchett and Gaiman at their original best!
