4.5 Score: 4.5 (From 802 Ratings)


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.

  • A Wacky Collaberation

    Pretty well anything goes in this frenetic fantasy gone berserk. Open your mind for this one and enjoy.
  • Doesn't come with the helpful notes!?

    By iamellaelise
    You get the asterisks, but none of the helpful notes. What is up with that?

    This 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.
