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...

    "Terrible sound quality"

    First download from here and the sound quality is shocking, like it was recorded in a tin cell. Will be cancelling after this free download as I wouldn't pay for something of this poor quality

    Story
    "A++++ Absolutely loved it!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Good Omens to be better than the print version?

    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


    What other book might you compare Good Omens to, and why?

    Is there any other book? How can you compare it to this masterpiece?


    What does Stephen Briggs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    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!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    *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..


    Any additional comments?

    My favourite book of all time (so I'm probably a little bit biased)!

    Story
    "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.

    "Great book."

    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.

    "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.
