'Ridiculously inventive and gloriously funny' Guardian
What if, for once, the predictions are right, and the Apocalypse really is due to arrive next Saturday, just after tea?
It's a predicament that Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon, now find themselves in. They've been living amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and, truth be told, have grown rather fond of the lifestyle and, in all honesty, are not actually looking forward to the coming Apocalypse.
Now people have been predicting the end of the world almost from its very beginning, so it's only natural to be sceptical when a new date is set for Judgement Day.
You could spend the time left drowning your sorrows, giving away all your possessions in preparation for the rapture, or laughing it off as (hopefully) just another hoax. Or you could just try to do something about it.
And then there's the small matter that someone appears to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

“Marvellously benign, ridiculously inventive and gloriously funny”
“A superbly funny book. Pratchett and Gaiman are the most hilariously sinister team since Jekyll and Hyde. If this is Armageddon, count me in”
“Heaven to read, and you'll laugh like hell”
“Not quite as sinister as the authors' photo”
“Hilarious Pratchett magic tempered by Neil Gaiman's dark steely style; who could ask for a better combination?”
“Good Omens is frequently hilarious, littered with funny footnotes and eccentric characters. It's also humane, intelligent, suspenseful, and fully equipped with a chorus of "Tibetans, Aliens, Americans, Atlanteans and other rare and strange creatures of the Last Days." If the end is near, Pratchett and Gaiman will take us there in style”
