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...

©1990 Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman; (P)2006 Isis Publishing Ltd

    Story
    "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.

    "Magnificent"

    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"
    What made the experience of listening to Good Omens the most enjoyable?

    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!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definately! I could have listened to this forever!

    Story
    "A masterpiece novel from two fantasy geniuses."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The four horseman of the apocalypse because of the authors unique interpretation of them.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Briggs’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The only tears were tears of happiness.


    Any additional comments?

    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!
