Praise for Good Omens

“Wickedly funny”

Time Out

“Marvellously benign, ridiculously inventive and gloriously funny”

GUARDIAN

“A superbly funny book. Pratchett and Gaiman are the most hilariously sinister team since Jekyll and Hyde. If this is Armageddon, count me in”

James Herbert

“Wow”

Washington Post

“'Heaven to read, and you'll laugh like hell'”

Time Out

“'Not quite as sinister as the authors' photo'”

The Times

“'Hilarious Pratchett magic tempered by Neil Gaiman's dark steely style; who could ask for a better combination?'”

Fear

“'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'”
