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...

"Brilliant Brilliant & again Brilliant!"
Am now a huge fan of what is the "Amazing world of Pratchett & Gaiman!" Brilliantly written & Stephen Briggs delivery was the icing on the cake...Five*****all the way!
"A book I had to keep reversing to follow the plot"
I have found that I either thoroughly enjoy a Terry Pratchett or find it very disappointing. This one fell into the latter category.. too many characters and too much jumping around. When you have to reverse back frequently it is just not enjoyable. Maybe I should have just listened and not multi tasked with this one... But the ability to do other things whilst listening is the reason I love audible.
Great vocalisation from Stephen Briggs - he really catches the essence of Pratchett and Gaimans dry, black humour. Audio track was clear, which is always good news. Recommended
"A must listen!"
Stephen Briggs' narration is a joy to listen to, he breathes life into every character, showing great skill at voices and accents, and he has an excellent grasp on the sense of humour and pacing of the story.
"Clever, witty fun"
Its an exciting fairy story for grown ups! Witty and clever you have to listen carefully to get all the jokes.
"One of my favourite books"
This has always been one of my favourite books, and therefore it was no surprise that it was the first one I added to my audible library. I had not heard Stephen Briggs narrating before, and was impressed by the job he did. If you like Sir Terry, or Neil Gaiman then this version shouldn't disappoint.
One of the best I have. I have listened to it several times, whereas I listen to most of my books once.
Crowley and Aziraphael
It is difficult to pick one out amongst so many.
No. It is a book to savour the nuances of the interplay between Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
One for anyone who enjoys whimsical fantasy.
"Witty, engaging and well-read - A great listen"
Definitely recommend - very entertaining story and a relaxing listen
Crowley (nee Crawly) - he just seemed to strike a chord with me :)
Stephen Briggs does an excellent job of bringing characters to life - better, in many cases, than my own imagination could manage.
I quite embarrassed myself bursting out with laughter at one point on a busy train listening to this book
"Loved this to bits"
This is such a fun mix of stuff you cannot fail to enjoy it.
The different characters are great, all with their own personalities and blended perfectly.
Stephen Briggs voices for the characters are great. It's like you can almost see them!
This was my first venture into Pratchett or Gaiman and I wasn't sure what to expect. But this is a really clever, entertaining book and I listened to it twice, straight after one another!
Was recommended this from various TP fans - not the same as his normal Discworld titles, but worth a listen/read :)
Stephen Briggs, as always gives a clear reading, and does manage to make each character quite individual
