Publisher Description

The classic collaboration from the internationally bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, soon to be an original series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant.

?Season 2 of Good Omens coming soon!

“Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.” —Washington Post

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.

And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

Good Omens

Good premise. Ironic and funny. Ending is a bit disappointing.

Brewtopian ,

Totally awesome!

This is one of the funniest books I've ever read and at the same time its a great commentary on modern culture. Written in a style similar to Douglas Adams with that dry British wit this book will have you busting a gut from start to finish

Beautifully Funny

Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett: two great tastes that taste great together.

If you have read and enjoyed writings from either of these authors, then there is no question that you will find this book equally entertaining (if not more so). If you've never read a Gaiman or Pratchett book before, well, this is a great place to start.

I could go on and on, but I really don't have the skill to do this book justice. Besides, it speaks for itself. So go ahead, read it. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
