Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

Book Review | Rating – 5/5 | Genre – Fantasy

Armageddon only happens once, you know. They don’t let you go around again until you get it right.

According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch – the world’s only totally reliable guide to the future, written in 1655, before she exploded – the world will end on a Saturday.

Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea…

My First Thoughts

I bought this book after seeing lots of adverts for the TV series (which I’m still yet to watch). Im so glad I did! This book was just so much fun to read from start to finish.

This book was helped by my love for both Gaiman and Pratchett, together they have crafted a beautifully witty story.

Why 5/5?

  • Weird & wonderful characters – whether they had a staring role or only appeared for one chapter, each new character was written with care and detail. This crafted an intricate world so much like the one we live in.
  • Consistently entertaining – with each chapter came more excitement for what came next. There was never a dull moment for me.
  • So witty – as can be expected from a book written by to very witty authors, this book didn’t hold back on sarcasm and dry humour. The seem-less comedy presented surrounded by a rather bleak story made the book realistic and relatable.

Would I Recommend It?

Definitely! This was such an exciting book to read from start to finish. If you’re a fan of Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman it is the perfect collaboration of two brilliant writers.
