Waterstones Says

Pooling everything that is so great about Pratchett and Gaiman’s writing into a freewheeling tale of the apocalypse, the antichrist and the disturbingly specific prophecies of a 17th century witch, Good Omens is a comic fantasy whose reputation has only grown stronger with the passing years.

A landmark collaboration between two of Britain’s greatest authors, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaimain, Good Omens is now a major television series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant

Armageddon only happens once, you know. They don't let you go around again until you get it right.

According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch - the world's only totally reliable guide to the future, written in 1655, before she exploded - the world will end on a Saturday. 

Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea...

People have been predicting the end of the world almost from its very beginning, so it's only natural to be sceptical when a new date is set for Judgement Day.

This time though, the armies of Good and Evil really do appear to be massing. The four Bikers of the Apocalypse are hitting the road. But both the angels and demons - well, one fast-living demon and a somewhat fussy angel - would quite like the Rapture not to happen.

Oh, and someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist...

Wow - WASHINGTON POST

Heaven to read, and you'll laugh like hell - Time Out

“Chuckle and snort your way to the end of times”

Well, what can I say about this book other than it is just utterly awesomely hilarious. The combination of wit, humour and inventiveness of Pratchett and Gaiman is just a joy to read and makes for one of the most... More

“Entertaining collaboration”

So far I've read two Pratchett novels, both from the Discworld series, and I liked how Pratchett plays with language, even adding a touch of philosophy and what not here and there. I plan to read more Discworld... More
