Publisher's Summary

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. Put New York Times best-selling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett together...and all Hell breaks loose.

©1990 Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett; (P)2009 HarperCollins Publishers

What the Critics Say

"Pratchett (of Discworld fame) and Gaiman (of Sandman fame) may seem an unlikely combination, but the topic (Armageddon) of this fast-paced novel is old hat to both. Pratchett's wackiness collaborates with Gaiman's morbid humor; the result is a humanist delight to be savored and reread again and again." (Amazon.com review)

    "Great authors, good story, weird performance"

    This is my favorite genre of book- some fantasy, some magic, interesting odd characters . The authors know how to write s great and engaging and fun story. The performance was the only failing here

    "One of my favorite pieces of satire"

    Two great authors come together to write one brilliant satire performed masterfully.

    I read this book at least once a year and listening to it was a wonderful experience for a book I've enjoyed so many times before.

    "Great fun!"

    Loved it! A great listen. Characters brought to life. I enjoyed how the story unwound through different storylines. Some delicious characters.

    "One of my all time favorites."

    Made even better by Martin Jarvis. The only apocalypse book worth reading for people of a mischievous and hopeful nature.

    "A humorous twist on the end of the world"

    A fantastic satirical storyline about the end of days. I would happily suggest this book to many people I know. If you are considering this book, get it. It balances dramatic tension and witty humor fantasticly.

    I really enjoyed this book and the narrator was fantastic. It was witty and irreverent but thought provoking at the same time.

    Just get it.
    Very funny.
    British wit and humor at its best. Reminiscent of Douglas Adams.

    "Clever book!"

    I don't write reviews on much. This book was worth one though. Tons of tongue in cheek, high brow humor that help you appreciate what you take for granted... and question it... and then realize that it really is nice that we can take all this stuff for granted, now isn't it, and you just wish that all those silly people that set about stirring up trouble in the world could just read this book and that would make them all feel better too, and the world would just be a better place then, now wouldn't it?

    Well written. Equally well read. In my top 3 ever short list.

    "What is going on?"

    Great humor, great narrator. But this book switches characters and setting in the middle of sentences with no information on the new characters. I've went over ten minutes trying to figure out why one character would be saying that and it's a totally new character.
