But what if, for once, the predictions are right, and the apocalypse really is due to arrive next Saturday, just after tea?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Marvellously benign, ridiculously inventive and gloriously funny' - The Guardian 

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

'A superbly funny book. Pratchett and Gaiman are the most hilariously sinister team since Jekyll and Hyde. If this is Armageddon, count me in' - James Herbert

'Wow' - The Washington Post

“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
