Inhaltsangabe

The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist. Put New York Times best-selling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett together...and all Hell breaks loose. 

©1990 Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett (P)2009 HarperCollins Publishers

great book, chapters are a bit inconvenient

loved it! only they could have tried to split it into more chapters instead of leaving it in the "day by day" structure.
apart from that it has been a great book, good narration. the short musical interludes create a nice atmosphere. plus: it had been quite some time since a book made me laugh out loud (and also made my write a review;)

Terrific omens for a great listening time

Good Omens is a thoroughly enjoyable audiobook. Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman composed a delightful and inventive story with memorable characters, hilarious situations, some drama and an endearing attention to detail. It provides both laughing out loud entertainment and food for thought. Martin Jarvis portrays each and every of the numerous characters with care and gives them their own tonation, accent and style. The fictional world feels very alive with all the different voices. Jarvis' reading, almost a dramatisation, is well-paced, although one has to pay close attention in order to catch all the funny details.

Best one yet!

This book is just perfect! It’s intelligent, funny and wise and -most importantly - makes one think. The characters are absolutely adorable and the story is original and has nicely surprising twists every once in a while.
Will definitely check out more by Pratchett and Gaiman.

Not as an audiobook

This book is amazing. It has everything one could wish for. Witty humour, amazing detail, great storytelling and the ability to fascinate you, every time you reread it.

But: This is not a good audiobook. At least not for me. I sometimes lose my concentration on the story for a few seconds when I change the busline, make some tea or start thinking about a subject in the story. Most audiobooks are forgiving and it's easy to get back into. This isn't. In this book the latter example of making me think (or laugh) to much happens so frequently, that I probably missed half the book and even rewind was at some point not helping anymore and details are to many (and to funny) to be able to follow the plot without. I now picked up a printed copy. It's the better medium for this truly great story.

Sau langweilig

Dieses Hör ich war das langweilige, dass ich seit langem gehört habe. Hab es wegen dem Namen Pratchet gekauft. Ist leider nicht mit seinen anderen Büchern zu vergleichen.
