'Ridiculously inventive and gloriously funny' Guardian
What if, for once, the predictions are right, and the Apocalypse really is due to arrive next Saturday, just after tea?
It's a predicament that Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon, now find themselves in. They've been living amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and, truth be told, have grown rather fond of the lifestyle and, in all honesty, are not actually looking forward to the coming Apocalypse.
Now people have been predicting the end of the world almost from its very beginning, so it's only natural to be sceptical when a new date is set for Judgement Day.
You could spend the time left drowning your sorrows, giving away all your possessions in preparation for the rapture, or laughing it off as (hopefully) just another hoax. Or you could just try to do something about it.
And then there's the small matter that someone appears to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
Crowley - David Tennant
Aziraphale - Michael Sheen

Voice of God - Frances McDormand
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Acclaimed fantasy authors Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman teamed up for this wry, pre-apocalyptic comedy of errors. Due to a hospital mix-up in England, a normal boy named Warlock is presumed to be the Antichrist; Adam Young, the actual Antichrist, is raised as a normal boy. Swirling around this pair are witches, angels, demons and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, all straining against their celestial roles while hell-bent on fulfilling them. Hilarious in the style of Monty Python films and Red Dwarf episodes, Good Omens regards the end times not with seriousness, but as a seriously good-natured goof.
This zany tale of the bungling of Armageddon features an angel, a demon, an 11-year-old Antichrist and a doomsaying witch; unmistakably British humor is in abundance.

One of my most favorite books of all time. I have one copy I lend to friends, and another just for myself. Feeling like I should get an ebook too just so I can have it whenever I want.
Two of the best together!
Neil and Terry the only way to make it better if if Douglas was in on it.
Armageddon once... but you can reread this a hundred times
Read this when it was young and on paper - was blown away by the genius of the book and found I could come back and dip into it over the years. One of my first e-Books - read it and Starlight in a day. Then devoured the backstory of the collaboration of these two writers :) It just keeps getting better.
