Book Review: Good Omens

Title: Good Omens

Author: Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

Genre: Speculative Fiction Comedy…err…ish

Summary: (from amazon.com)
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 . . .

Why did I read this book: Neil Gaiman + Terry Pratchett. Need I say more?



In a nutshell, that’s exactly what this book is.

The End.
