This is just not my type of book. It reminded me a lot of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I am not a fan of dry humor. This book would be great for someone who enjoys that type of book, it is just not me. There are many rave reviews and great comments. If you are a fan of Hitchhiker's Guide or Dogma, you will likely love this one as well.

Day 12 of #scarathlondailyprompts is grave. Early in the story, one of the MCs meets up with two others at a grave to exchange a valuable item.
I just did a buddy read with a sweet friend. We both really enjoyed this one with its dry humor.

So Audible had another 2 for 1 credit sale & I picked up 4 books. It ends tonight. In mere minutes.

I have Good Omens. A different version. I still chose the full cast edition. 🤨

2 books are completing 2 series & one will help me purge so I can buy more books 😆

It was very clever about the end of the world and the Antichrist being misplaced, etc., but I had a hard time getting into it. I think I would have liked it better 20 years ago or so, when I was more in a mood for it. I'm not quite as much into fantasy / humor now. Series on TV may be good though. I still recommend it for those who like early Neil Gaiman and basic Pratchett.

KathyWheeler The tv series was great. 6mo

A real change-up compared to what I‘ve been reading, this book is just… fun. Shockingly anticlimactic for a book about the apocalypse, but in a doesn‘t-take-itself-too-seriously kind of way. A nice blend of biblical doom and comedic absurdity. Takes a bit of prior knowledge about England and the Bible, but its generally accessible I think, (and the footnotes certainly helped lol!)

a Jemisin book I wanted so I picked up this one. I like Pratchett and Gaiman so it might be good. Did not see any of the series.

#WrapUp for March

📚 7 total reads for the month.
Enjoy all of them! Last month of pure pleasure reading.

From April I'll have to start-up my studies again and read a few more compulsory books that the fun ones.
But I am to track them as well...
I mean I am reading, just not necessarily what I wish to read.

I‘m giving this read a 3.9⭐️ but in truth as being very generous. I love Neil Gaiman… He is creative, dark, funny and very imaginative. All of these qualities were present in this book, so in that regard it wasn‘t lacking. However, there were so many times that I actually found myself bored can dreading having to go on. Overall the book wasn‘t bad but it wasn‘t great and it kind of left me disappointed. This was also my second #roll100

I love recommending books and try to match a person's personality, but these are some that get brought up again and again, in no particular order:

📚 Good Omens
📚 Neverwhere
📚 Recursion
📚 Lamb
📚 Skyward
📚 The Way of Kings
📚 Flowers for Algernon
📚 The Princess Bride
📚 The Little Prince

Honorable mention: Under the Whispering Door -- recent read, so hasn't been recommended much, but it will be.

Elizabeth2 Good Omens was an excellent book and I almost added it to my list. 😄 I am looking forward to reading Under the Whispering Door because I loved Cerulean Sea so much, which made my list in the same way - recent read but I will be recommending often! 11mo

I finished my Good Omens reread. This is time seven or eight, I think. GO is my feel-good book; but for the first time, I didn‘t love it. The gay jokes really bothered me (more so than in the past; I didn‘t realize how pervasive they are) and the fat jokes, too. Also, I didn‘t love the adaptation when I watched it last summer and it colored my reading.

Now I‘m sad.

Tamra 😔 But sad for the right reasons is some consolation. I am often afraid to reread favorites in case of disappointment. 1y

Weird book synchronicity - reading HP with the kiddo and just began a reread of my favorite book; and I realized Miranda Richardson was in the adaptations of both. I was reading Madame Tracy to myself today, and then reading Rita Skeeter to the kiddo, and it dawned on me. Odd.

Also, my GO copy looks filthy from reading it so often. And the more I read the less thrilled I am with having watched the GO series. My in-head voices are off now.

Audiobook version.

I normally love Gaiman's work but I just could not get into this. I might try it again down the line as everyone raves about it- or maybe I will just watch the show. Everything felt too clean and the characters were not interesting enough.

For now, I am out, opinion subject to change, but I have too much of a backlog to finish something that feels like pulling teeth.

Sorry Neil, Terry, still a big fan of your works.

I reread Good Omens this past week on a whim. I still enjoyed it, but there is some casual racism that really makes me cringe now. And the idea that Pestilence threw in the towel and became Pollution hasn't aged well 😂

(No, I haven't seen the tv series.)

night_shift The TV movie is very good! If you have the chance, I'd give it a watch! 2y
wanderinglynn I second @UnidragonFrag – the tv series is very good. Gaiman wrote the script and made some needed updates. 2y
effani @UnidragonFrag @wanderinglynn I definitely want to watch the show, but I don't have much tv time and haven't gotten around to it. I hope I can soon, now that the book is fresh in my mind! 2y

If you ever had doubts about religion or having an existential crisis, this book won't help. But it will make you giggle hysterically. You will fall in love with either Aziraphale or Crowley. Or both. After reading you will hum 'Bohemian Rhapsody' every time you enter a car. Bonus: the series is on Amazon and is also very good!

Bailedbailed

This is the second month in a row I tried but couldn‘t commit to this one.

I think of the bail button as a “pause until I‘m in a different mindset” button. Honestly if a book is bad I‘ll still finish it and mark it as a “pan”. I feel like if I catch myself in the right mood I‘d like this one, or maybe I‘ll just check out the show 🤷🏼‍♀️

Taking it off my #bookspinbingo board though and revisit it in a few months.

MsMelissa I bailed on this one and never had any desire to go back and try again. With the exception of Stardust, I am not a fan of Gaiman‘s books. 2y
Annie1215 @Book_Fiend_Melissa I‘ve never read any of his others either, but feel like there‘s a lot of hype. Makes me feel like I‘m missing something. But I‘m not generally in to fantasy or a sci-fi so maybe it‘s just not a good fit. 2y
TheAromaofBooks Sometimes it's just not the right book!! 2y
TracyReadsBooks I read this book but really didn‘t like it—far too much Pratchett and not enough Gaiman for me. That being said, even as I was reading (and hating it) I felt it would be better as a movie or tv show and I have to admit, I really did enjoy the tv adaptation. 2y
