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.

“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 . . .

The Ha-pocolypse

This book shows its age, now. It is still extremely clever and humorous. I gave it a 4 star review because it is a little culturally specific for the English, but I, as an American, still found it thoroughly enjoyable.

Yes

I bought the book at Barnes and noble and I’m reviewing it here. It is hilarious. I watched the series before I read the book, but just thinking about Michael sheen every time aziraphale pops up is fantastic <3 also the good omens fandom is HUGE and there are a buttload of fanfics out there, but I digress. Gabriel is an arse. Read this book.

Book that offends on end

This book isn’t seen as a typical fantasy. But one that offends religions and science saying it is wrong. The two angels are thrown into the story with little interest in the world around them. Opinions and thoughts are told like yesterday’s news. The book flows creatively through dialogue. A sense of humor that is merely overlooked. But what is seen as offensive is action packed. The book is for those who dislike religion and for those who are amused by philosophical discussions.
