Synopsis

According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter - the world's only totally reliable guide to the future - the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea...

"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

"Good Omens is by far one of the funniest works of fiction I have ever read. Pratchett and Gaiman have managed to create a story that weaves together large doses of satire, cynicism, slapstick and wacky unconventional humour into a cohesive yet suprisingly accurate observation of human life all over the world."

\"I laughed. I cried. One day I\'ll even read it.\" – Groucho Marx Here\'s the thing: if you are lucky enough to have read this book, a book with Dukes of Hell and bikers of the Apocalypse and a demon who drives a Bentley through the English countryside all the while not giving a damn about the stiff British upper lip plus a seriously hilarious cast (some that are experts at lurking and some that are totally confused on whose side they\'re on) where you even gotta love the baddies – well then, you are one of the lucky ones to have read Good Omens. Truth: my girlfriend has forbidden me to read this in bed because I break out into hysterical giggles so often she can\'t sleep. So she can\'t function the next day. We are suing Messrs Pratchett and Gaiman for writing the funniest book ever!
