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...

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.
"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!
"best book ever"
loved it love it love it love it love it loved it! ! ! ! moo skellyT
Pratchett and Gaiman are pure genius - hilarious from start to finish, will definitely reread again and again!
"A masterpiece novel from two fantasy geniuses."
The book is a humorous take on the end of the world written by two modern fantasy authors whose imagination is endless. Plots of different characters and their visions of the end of the world are funny, unique and grotesque right up to the twist in the end.
The four horseman of the apocalypse because of the authors unique interpretation of them.
It is the first Stephen Briggs' performance I listened to. It was at a faster paste than other narrators, however I would listen to it again and again.
The only tears were tears of happiness.
Imagination of the authors is outstanding. Thank you for the hours of enjoyment.
"As good as I remembered it - 25 years ago"
This is a joy to listen to (and read) and has not lost any of the humour over the past 25 years. A must read for any Pratchett or Gaiman fan and any who like comedy - go on give a try, you'll like it!
"A brilliant book by a most brilliant man RIP"
This is an excellent, funny and provocative book with bible reference's and just plain funny.
