The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

I wish I would’ve read this book instead of listening to it. It gets a bit slow at some points so it would have been nice to read it at my own, faster pace. It also gets a bit too fast at some points and gives you a lot of details (so much so that I would rewind to listen again). My main problem with this audiobook, however, is the way this voice actor does female voices. In particular, the voice of war. This book doesn’t pass the bechdel test insofar have I listened, and it’s further frustrating to me that they hired a voice actor who does female voices in a horrifically bad way. Seriously, which editor listened to this man do that voice and said “that’ll do just fine”??!! Be warned: this one should be read instead of listened to.
