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)

    "it was okay"

    this book was entertaining and had funny parts but overall I was not very satisfied with this one. The Graveyard book is my favorite so far.

    "Over done"

    A lot of funny and ironically philosophical situations over done with to much prattle. Right

    "Stupid.... But in a good way"

    The reviews on the cover art say it pretty well. Extra points for being narrated by a British Gentleman.

    "Terrible story."
    What was most disappointing about Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett ’s story?

    The story line was absolutely terrible and confusing. Would not recommend.


    What does Martin Jarvis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrations were wonderful, I loved the voices he put on.


    What character would you cut from Good Omens?

    All of them, the story was terrible.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was wonderful, but it was the only thing that saved it.

    "Lots of Fun"
    Any additional comments?

    I have to admit, I absolutely loved Gaiman's book American Gods. That said, I have had trouble talking about this Good Omens without nit-picking the little things that made American Gods better. However, Good Omens was an excellent book and deserves to be read and reviewed without being played down because I liked another book better. So I'll do my best to keep my comments focused on Good Omens.<br/><br/>Gaiman has a very fun, light hearted style, even when talking about the apocalypse. The story is fast pace and engaging, and the characters are like-able and relatable (the unearthly ones included). He does touch on some more serious topics with some heavy commentary, but its always done tastefully, with just enough humor to let you disagree with out souring the book. In other words, I was able to read this book as a Christian with out the almost sacrilegious nature of the story ruining it. It does take a good sense of humor and a little suspension of... belief if you've got it. All in all, a fun read.

    "Get the paper copy"

    This is an absolute favourite book of mine and I was so excited to listen to it after having read it twice before but the editing and production of this recording is simply atrocious. The reader is decent enough but the way the audio is cut together you are bound to get lost and confused when there narration changes perspective (which it does constantly). In the physical edition of the book, it's easy to see, as there is a clear break in the text but there isn't so much as a pause or change in reading style in this recording to give you any clue. It'll give you narrative whiplash.

    "Maybe some years before I would find it funnier"

    I got bored. Maybe I had great expectations but still.

    High IQ humor, very tasty really, super sarcastic funny lines, but they were not enough to keep me wanting for more and all this sounded a bit outdated. After a while it was boring and not funny.
