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...

    "Great book"

    A truly cult novel. I normally groan when I encounter a book written by two authors. This, though, was a brilliant combinations between Pratchett and Gaiman. I particularly like the characters of Crowley and Aziraphel.

    "Madly, Englishly funny"

    Good Omens is exactly the kind of book for you if you were one of those people who grew up on BBC radio, and appreciate finely written good humour.

    The narration was precise and exactly how it should be.

    "Good Omens: The Nice Observations of TP & NG"

    If you've ever read any Terry Pratchett before, you've got a pretty good ida of what you're going to be getting from this book. Sharp insights on genre fiction, and wider observations of (particularly English) society in general. And you'll be taught a thing or two along the way - 'nice' (possibly the most maligned word amongst teachers of the English Language) has an alternate use that gives an indication of precision. Hence, the title.

    Whilst Good Omens cannot be considered the pinnacle of his work, it is an entertaining departure that follows the End of the World as if planned and executed by 'normal' people. Needless to say it is not a smooth ride. The plot is dependable, although the characters sometimes feel a little flat - with a few notable exceptions who are perhaps enhanced by their lack of 'screen time'.

    So far this review has proceeded as if this were a book only written by Pratchett - and that is the way it reads for the most part. Not entirely surprising as TP later took the credit for writing the majority of the book. Although not stylistically dominant, it is still possible to hear Gaiman's voice - more commonly through particular arcs of the story and certain characterisations.

    In short - this book is fun. It does not, perhaps, reach the heights that either author has achieved, but it's a pleasant enough story and the jokes are genuinely funny. Having reached the end it seems like 'nice' was probably the right word for it after all.

    "The world will end...on Saturday?"
    Where does Good Omens rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say Good Omens highly ranks in my audiobook collection. The writing styles of Pratchett and Gaiman - despite being quite different versions of fantasy - mix together well to create a truly laugh out loud book. I highly recommend this book to fans of either author.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Crowley was my favourite character simply because his perspective on things made him seem like a hilarious interpretation of a demon. Examples include the Bentley and every cd/tape that was in a car for more than a week transforming into a best of Queen album as well as his reasons for his arc in the book


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Briggs – was your favourite?

    Crowley once again as Briggs makes him sound like just enough of a self-centered git that you believe his character. Briggs's narration on the whole is excellent and makes it easier to follow the plot when the book jumps characters.


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

    Yes as I found it very hard to put down as I was laughing far too hard for my own good! This book is highly recommended!


    Any additional comments?

    The only drawback this book has is it can be difficult to follow at times although Briggs's narration is a big help with this.
