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...

just loved the way the story twist and turns wrapping you tightly into a world that you thought you knew
"Joy & Pleasure"
Stephen Briggs does a marvellous job of bringing all the fantastic characters that Terry & Neil have created. I cannot recommend this story enough in any format but this audiobook is certainly worth the price!
"Good Omens... A must read!"
Great story.... Perfect couple...the angel and the fallen angel!! The good and the bad in one person.. One human!
What can one say about a collaboration between two truly wonderful storytellers. Fabulous story, laugh out loud silliness. Stephen Biggs is a consistent and engaging narrator
Yes it made me laugh out loud.
Lovely story with great characters well read
I can't compare this to any other books other than Sir Terry's Guards Guards or Monstrous Regiment
"Read book twice, listened twice, good even then."
Read book twice, listened twice, good even then.
loved the description of dog, and his rise to pethood
"Well performed, well written, well enjoyed"
Although I felt at times, especially near the end, the story dragged a little, this may have just been due to the fact I listened to it so often in such a short period of time I started to feel restless. I also thought that the vast cast of characters sometimes became a little confusing, though they were all well crafted and acted. However these two aspects don't take away from how awesome the book was at a whole, and especially how Briggs narrates it, I loved the whole experience and I'm glad I chose to listen to it rather than read it myself.
it has to be said, good omens represents one of the finest examples of the genre. whats interesting is that to hear the authers tell it, the book for the most part wrote itself.
"The end of the world: This Saturday!"
I don't often read fantasy novels, but this was a great 'behind the scenes' look at what could happen! Very typically English, whilst remembering to explain British things to our North American cousins!
This is s novel that you need to listen to a couple of times because, you just know that you'll miss something funny, or interesting the first time around!
Reminds me a little of C. S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters. Another good read. It is, of course, only human to imagine what is going on in the minds of angels and demons… this was very well imagined!
"Laugh Out Loud Funny & Super Clever"
It was totally unexpected. Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman are both amazing authors but this combination is the best of both of them. Every joke is perfectly formed & perfectly timed, the story is totally unique & yet as old as time.... Every piece fits into place perfectly & I found myself laughing out loud so many times I was banned from listening to it when there were other people around!
Definately! I could have listened to this forever!
