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

Critic Reviews

"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)

Cute

I'm a big Neil Gaiman fan. There's something about his sense of humor that I adore. And this book hams it up. Plus it's got a perfect narrator to deliver those amusing lines in just the right way. I think this book delivered on everything it said it would be.

Fantastic all around!

Great story, fun, clever, and using humor to tackle thought-provoking questions. The narrator was exceptionally good, with great use of character voices and accents- with one tiny proviso: he did a American Southern accent great, but not quite as spot on with a typical American accent. Overall this book is a delightful listen and I highly recommend!

funny and intriguing take on the end of the world

Enjoyable story with several intersecting storylines of quirky and interesting characters centered around one main event (end of the world). The journey to the main event has many funny twists and turns along the way.

Fun, clever but quite a meh end.

It's a very fun book, many memorable characters, but felt the end a bit weak for my taste. Martin Jarvis is so versatile!!!! He was really wonderful, a fan of him now!!!

Wonderful frothy little story

The narrator is a gem and really creates the characters for you-only Neil Gaiman can create a narrative arc where the world is ending and suburban England and have a story be delightful and very engaging
