By Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett
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 . . .
Aaaaaah5By UniSansBest book I’ve ever read, left me wanting more each time I read it. Really quite spectacular.
Not a biblical prophecy false preaching1By TDeter97This is not accurate to what the Holy bible says about judgement day this is a worldly one Christians be ware.
Good Omens5By .🤘.👍As a teenager I really enjoy books like this, it had a great premise and good comedy.
The Ha-pocolypse4By MallorysbroThis 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.
Amazing5By JvhenryI have read this book so many times and it only gets better!
A Wacky Collaberation4By DwardengPretty well anything goes in this frenetic fantasy gone berserk. Open your mind for this one and enjoy.
Doesn't come with the helpful notes!?1By iamellaeliseYou get the asterisks, but none of the helpful notes. What is up with that?
Fantastic5By Vincent PedoneThis book is just fantastic, and started my love of Gaiman.
Please just read it5By Happy pet ownerThis might be the third or forth time I've read this book; it's certainly not the last. I love Terry Pratchett. I love Neil Gaiman. I think the whole world should.
Yes.5By 101019329110A book 20 years old needs no review, for every review has already been given, every angle of analysis exhausted, every compliment catalogued, and every one of millions of copies used, abused, and ultimately loved. So instead refer to the title for my complete review, a monosyllabic affirmation of my immediate and unreserved affection for this book.
