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...

    "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!

    "Sublime"

    Great story, writing and performance. Witty, wonderful and, as always with Pratchett, has its heart in the right place. Very very enjoyable.

    "Disappointing"
    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Would you listen to Good Omens again? Why?

    Yes listened to a few times and never disappointed always being a smile to may face and will yours too


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

    Its a typical Pratchett book amazing funny details and great humour, too many book to compare it with to list.


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

    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

    "Wonderfully hilarious"
    Would you listen to Good Omens again? Why?

    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.


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

    While not riotously funny, there is an amazingly consistent level of chuckling throughout.

    "beautiful"

    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.

    Story
    "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!
