Narrated By: Martin Jarvis

Duration: 12 hours 33 minutes

Summary:

Winner of the Audiophile Magazine Earphones Award.
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 . . .

    I was so glued to the story that I could not stop listening to it until the end. The end was so Neil Gaiman weird that I don't know what to say. I loved everything except for the end. I feel like something was missing. I bet the TV show will clear things up. It did with American Gods. I understood the book much better after watching the show.

    I love Neil Gaiman and although he is known to be an established children's author, I would always read his stories prior to letting a young reader venture in. This book is no exception. It is a bit difficult to follow in places and it is always a shame when Gaiman does not read his own work as he is exceptional at conveying he characters personalities, it was still well read and entertaining.
