Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman is a story about the birth of the anti-christ and his destiny to destroy the world. But things never go as planned. Because two unlikely best friends (an angel with a slightly unorthodox approach and a devil with a soft spot for humanity) try to save the world (they like the world just the way it is and don't want it to end... yet). But what if the only person that can save all mankind is the anti-christ himself? Does he want to be the anti-christ, did anyone ask him?
As I mentioned on my previous blog Terry Pratchett's books are a bit weird, and it does take some time to get used to them. They do get less confusing as you go on. It is worth the effort! A lot of people comment that this is like reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I think the humour is similar, and both are about the impending doom of the earth, but this one has very different characters. My favourite character in this book is Crawly, a demon with a wicked sense of humour. But there are so many great characters in this book, you will love them all.
This is a funny, real-funny fantasy that I think anyone would enjoy. It's my mum's favourite Terry Pratchett story. In Australia we have this edition with a two sided cover, you can have it black or white, depending if you are cheering for good or evil.
I rate this book out of 5 paper dolls:
