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...

"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.
"how do you quite this app???????"
Can not exit audible app! Why? going to remove app as just drains power. very disappointed in the AUDIBLE
Great story, writing and performance. Witty, wonderful and, as always with Pratchett, has its heart in the right place. Very very enjoyable.
I've read a couple of the Discworld novels and thoroughly enjoyed Terry Pratchett's writing and humour so I had high expectations of Good Omens. The narration was good as was the premise of the story, it just didn't engage me. In fact it became a bit of a chore to listen to and I found myself yearning for the next book on my wishlist. I really wanted to like it, such a shame.
"An amazing book, perfect fun loving story"
Yes listened to a few times and never disappointed always being a smile to may face and will yours too
Its a typical Pratchett book amazing funny details and great humour, too many book to compare it with to list.
Agnes Nutter, not really played as reimagined voices but played a crazy future seeing old lady perfectly
Laugh a lot, very time you think its turn a bit normal, it changes on you again and you'll be laughing
Would recommend this book to everyone makes life seem great and hey life could always be worse :D
"Best book in my collection"
The omen movie if things had gone awry.....with humour and a happy ending for all.
Highly recommended if you like Pratchett or Gaiman.
Most certainly. An incredibly funny book with a great story to deliver it. To me this feels like a Neil Gaiman story of endless celestial fate vs brief human morality absolutely steeped in Pratchett wit.
While not riotously funny, there is an amazingly consistent level of chuckling throughout.
A true piece of art. I am a great fan of Neil Gaiman and I thought i'd give this a go, and I was most definately not dissapointed. What a beautiful piece of writing. This book was written in such a way you fall in love with the characters and the relationships they have with one and other. The balance between what is good and what is evil is so beautifully represented, and the book is heartwarming and comedic, in an odd sort of way. The narrating was perfect. 10/10.
"Need a reasonable knowledge of the Bible for this one!"
As I have titled this is certainly true! As it also is though, a masterful 'round way wrong' scenario, you may get by with out that knowledge but will mean some of the jokes are impossible to define,
Luckily, as a good honest Christian, this was not a huge problem for me! Great book, recommended, funny & zany.. Would have given all five stars but because the bible knowledge is extremely helpful, marked down just a little bit, but great read!
