'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 . . .
What readers are saying about Good Omens:
***** 'A superb recipe for disaster. I didn't stop grinning from beginning to end.'
***** 'Both Gaiman and Pratchett are great authors and they complement each other brilliantly'
***** 'Superbly enjoyable read. Seamlessly co-written.'
Marvellously benign, ridiculously inventive and gloriously funny
A superbly funny book. Pratchett and Gaiman are the most hilariously sinister team since Jekyll and Hyde. If this is Armageddon, count me in
Heaven to read, and you'll laugh like hell
