Publisher Description

THE BOOK BEHIND THE AMAZON PRIME/BBC SERIES STARRING DAVID TENNANT, MICHAEL SHEEN, JON HAMM AND BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH

'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.

And then there's the small matter that someone appears to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

A treat

The wonderful thing about this book is that it’s pretty much deliberately timeless, but also very much of a period. In simple terms, it’s The Omen meets Just William, But it’s so much more than that.

There are those who will say there’s too much one one author and not enough of the other, but that’s not true. And better yet, the bits that you think are by one tend to be by the other (according to the authors when they spoke about it). The footnotes alone are worth the read, and funnier than many other novels, but the book itself is funny, and at the same time very serious, as all the best funny books are. This a a book about what it means to be human, and about the simple joy of being alive. And it remains, after thirty years, my favourite book ever.
