Publisher's Summary

The world’s last day has arrived. Hell itself has come to Earth. Streets of fire, rivers of blood, and the trains aren’t running on time. 

But Morag Murray isn’t going down without a fight. And as the mother to the anti-Christ, she feels a wee bit responsible. And maybe - just maybe - with the aid of possessed voodoo doll Steve, a cursed donkey, and her colleagues at the Consular Mission to the Venislarn, they can figure something out, even after all hope has gone. 

The fifth (and surely final?) novel in the best-selling Oddjobs comedy series.

Sad to see the end

Wonderful. Would love to hear the outtakes of the reading of all those names. I love the whole series.

This was my least favorite series but...

I still bloody loved it. The authors are amazingly good at writing characters and staying faithful to them, which is the hallmark of an excellent writer. They are also masters of weaving complex yet comprehensible tales that are never predictable yet never have the sort of lame plot twists at the last moment that seems to be the norm these days. Even though I hated the resignation to a tragic fate that permeated all the proceeding books, the ace writing always kept me coming back. Nicely done, you two.

Wonderful, simply, wonderful!

I was drawn to this series because of the title. After listening to the first book, I was hooked.

Now after listening to the entire series, I can say without a doubt this was one of my most enjoyable listens in a while.

Both the story and the narration are to notch.

I highly recommend.

Brilliant take on the Apocalypse

Amazing and so well done! . The cast, writing and reader are incredible and I can't wait to re-read with hubby. 2nd read: Even better!!! Love how much I discovered I missed the first time. So clever and each MC is an unusual hero. This NEEDS to be a series or animated series. Very Pratchett in weird way. Top 10 fav series and Discworld is number 1...I'm sure they understand...LOL!

Horrific narration

I have bought every book that Heidi and Iain have written. The month by month titles for JC are set at different levels of genius.
I loved Odd Jobs, books one to four (analogue) are outstanding. A thoroughly enjoyable romp through an impossible time and adventure
This presentation is just awful. It’s possible that the preceding volumes are equally bad, but I haven’t listened to them.
I’m about 20 minutes in and will be returning this book as the narrator is horrifically poor. My crass Hartley Hare impression from a badly remembered Pipkins is so, so much better than Matt’s “brumeey” accent.
DISAPPOINTED.

Amazing Narration

Great series. I love how all the little elements from the previous book came into land. Adore the new covers. Thanks to both authors and the narrator for hours and hours of inventive fun.
