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 . . .

    Another amazing story by Gaiman. The narrator brings life to the characters.

    Great book and the gentleman who read it did a great job with the voices. Really enjoyed this audiobook.

    Talk about random and can’t make up its mind on telling a coherent tale. Story is all over the place, and constantly inserts inane and completely uninteresting side notes and frequently devolves into what they think are funny sudo facts thrown in, but are in fact, a complete waste of time, totally unfunny, and have nothing to add to the story. Good authors, big miss.

    Beautiful! This book walks a very careful line between sassy and sweet.

    I have tried to listen to Terry pratchett before and didn't enjoy it very much, I did understand more of what was happen in this book ,but still think this style of book is not for me.

    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.
