Good Omens




A brilliantly dark and funny take on mankind's final judgment, from bestselling authors Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

'Armageddon only happens once, you know. They don't let you go around again until you get it right'

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. But what if, for once, the predictions are right, and the apocalypse really is due to arrive next Saturday, just after tea? 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.

Praise for Good Omens

“Marvellously benign, ridiculously inventive and gloriously funny”

GUARDIAN

“Wickedly funny”

TIME OUT

“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

“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”
