Good Omens
Good Omens | Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett
There is a distinct hint of Armageddon in the air. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witch-finders are getting ready to fight the good fight, armed with awkwardly antiquated instructions and stick pins. Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. . . . Right. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan.Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon -- each of whom has lived among Earth's mortals for many millennia and has grown rather fond of the lifestyle -- are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist (which is a shame, as he's a really nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. . . . First published in 1990, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back -- and just in time -- in a new hardcover edition (which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort) that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.

My first Pratchett, and so far I am not disappointed. 🙌🏻

Scochrane26 This was my first, too. Haven‘t read any others yet. 19h
jb72 I haven‘t read it yet. My first Pratchett was his autobiography of sorts. It was pretty good and sad at the same time. 12h
Jesstifies I ended up not finishing this one, despite really wanting to love it. I think bc I know very little about religion I ended up missing a lot of the subtle jokes that really make this book shine. I‘m curious why you‘ll think! 9h

I loved the characters and crazy plot in this book. Most of all I enjoyed the subtle humor in the narrator. Awesome.

This genre is growing on me. It's like a cross between Roald Dahl and C.S Lewis. Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman have created a modern classic. There are some hilarious lines, especially as I'm British and there's so much fun poked at us. The message of Good and Evil and how easy it is to mix the two up, is a powerful philosophy and encourages the reader to think about more than the story itself.

“Aziraphale collected books. If he were totally honest with himself he would have to have admitted that his bookshop was simply somewhere to store them....In order to maintain his cover as a typical second-hand book seller, he used every means short of actual physical violence to prevent customers from making a purchase. Unpleasant damp smells, glowering looks, erratic opening hours - he was incredibly good at it.” #Collect #QuotsySept19

Listening to the audio book and loving it. Amazing performance by Martin Jarvis. So much humor packed into this story. I love the narrator‘s voice and the subtle jokes that really require the reader to pay attention to every word. Reminiscent of Douglas Adams.

Happy National Read a Book Day!! I'm back with a vengeance this week! I finished two books from my Purgatory Shelf and I'm finally on to the next. Perhaps this is a sign of good things to come? Will this be a heavenly read? Or a hellish one?

Not one but TWO book deliveries today! First, the nice edition of Good Omens to replace the copy Book Depository mixed up with fashion history (Crowley doesn't object) and subsequently lost (it, in turn, is meant to replace a fraying old paperback, the white one. )

Cute story with clever writing. As an American reader I feel like a lot of the British references were unfamiliar to me, and I missed some of the humor.

I don't remember the last time I bailed on a book, but I'm about halfway through and I have no idea what is going on. I also can't keep track of all the different characters. I'm just going to watch the show, which is the only reason I'm reading the book anyways. Maybe I'll want to revisit it after that.

KatieDid927 Oh noes! I liked it but didn't love it. I do think it's pretty over-hyped. 4w

Finally scrolled all the way back to my first #bookhaul post! A little over 3 years ago & I wasn't yet savvy enough to use the tag. I've read half—all but the Bradbury—but my husband picked those out for himself, so they don't count, right?😏 I read Mark of Athena right away (Riordan binge!). I LOVED Good Omens. Oscar Wao sat around until I read it for book club. It was OK, but problematic in retrospect & I didn't hang on to it. #bookhaulchallenge

Thoroughly enjoyed Good Omens, it was giving me some real Douglas Adams vibes. Very funny and loved the Horsemen. Only complaint would be it was too short. Image unrelated but designed by my wife- I was reading whilst she was busy with this.

This one fell off my radar a while ago, but fully admit seeing all the promotion around the Amazon series pulled me back in. And I decided I would not watch until I read the book, and that was really hard given how much I love all things David Tennant. This was a great read and I should have read it long ago.

When you are travelling, only just arrived in the city and you come across a great bookshop with complete collections of your favourite authors... And they have a pretty edition of a book you read several times but did not have the paper edition of... Oh well :) I mostly bring back books from my trips!

annamatopoetry Oh that is beautiful! I was literally browsing the book tag for an upgrade to my ooold paperback and was able to get one! So thanks! 2mo
catsuit_mango @annamatopoetry you are welcome : I had realised after watching the series that my paper edition was in French :o so I re-read the eBook in English but still, it's one of my favourite books and I wanted it in original version ;) 2mo

This show dark & witty show a spot on adaptation of the amazingly well written book! If you read and loved the book, you'll love the show because it is the words from the pages come to life before your eyes. It is so accurate and filled with direct and exact book quotes with perfectly added elements that only enhance the story. If you haven't read the book, there's almost no need to after watching the show. Now set aside 6 hours and watch it!

The only thing I am not enjoying about this audio is that there are no breaks between character changes. But the book is fantastic and very enjoyable. Very funny and a light-hearted take on the Good and Evil angels teaming up to stop the Armageddon from happening (they enjoy Earth too much).

Well... this was a little bit of a let down. I enjoy both authors and their work but this fell a little flat. The first 150 pages were a joy to read but after an influx of characters it got quite messy. Other characters disappeared into the background and the humour became a little grating. I think I may reread this in the future, it‘s so beloved by many and I think it will deserve a second chance.
