A book by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman< read all 32 reviews
If you thought you knew what the apocalypse will entail, you were wrong! In this book by fantasy genius Neil Gaiman and comedic fantasist Terry Pratchett, the end of days includes (in no specific order): the four motorcyclists of the apocalypse, a prescient book, and a chattering order of satanic nuns.
God’s ineffable plan for the end of days is being put into place, which wouldn’t be too much of a problem, were it not for the fact that two agents of the beyond – the angel Aziraphale, and the demon Crowley – decide that they rather like humanity. Glorious satirical humor ensues as they attempt to prevent the end of the world while keeping one step ahead of their otherworldly superiors. To make matters worse, the Antichrist has been misplaced, and is living life as a normal eleven year old in Lower Tadfield.
I’d actually recommend that you not read this book while drinking anything, because chances are your drink will end up all over the pages of your copy after you spurt it out while laughing hysterically. If you enjoy British wit, fantasy, and don’t mind mild lampooning of Christianity, I’d definitely suggest you give this book a chance, and give it a read!
