Description


The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

Put New York Times bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett together . . . and all Hell breaks loose.

Praise For…


“The Apocalypse has never been funnier.”

“Hilariously naughty.”

“Wacky and irreverent.”

“Reads like the Book of Revelation, rewritten by Monty Python.”

“Fiendishly funny.”

“From beginning to end, GOOD OMENS is side-splittingly funny . . . a ripping good time.”

“If you’ve never read [GOOD OMENS], don’t miss it now. Grade: A.”

“It could be called The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Armargeddon.”

“[L]ittle asides, quirky observations, simple puns and parody eventually add up to snorts, chortles and outright laughs.”

“What’s so funny about Armageddon? More than you’d think . . . GOOD OMENS has arrived just in time.”

“Full-bore contemporary lunacy. A steamroller of silliness that made me giggle out loud.”

“A direct descendant of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

“An utter delight—fresh, exciting, uproariously funny.”

“Outrageous . . . read it for a riotous good laugh!”

“I whooped . . . I laughed . . . I was in near hysterics.:

“A slapstick Apocalypse, a grinning grimoire, a comic Necronomicon, a hitchhiker’s guide to the netherworld.”

“One Hell of a funny book.”

“Hilarious!”

“Huge fun.”

“Irreverently funny and unexpectedly wise . . . Highly recommended.”

“Something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated.”
