    Inhaltsangabe

    The internationally beloved novel by dream literary collaborators and internationally bestselling writers, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Soon to be a massive new TV launch on Amazon Prime Video and the BBC, a series written and show-run by Neil himself and starring David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Jon Hamm and Miranda Richardson, to name but a few.

    There is a hint of Armageddon in the air. According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. 

    So the Armies of Good and Evil are massing, the four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witchfinders are getting ready to Fight the Good Fight. Atlantis is rising. Frogs are falling. Tempers are flaring, and everything appears to be going to Divine Plan.

    Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. They've lived amongst Humanity for millennia, and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle. So if Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the AntiChrist (which is a shame, really, as he's a nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him.

    ©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.

    Great Story

    An interesting, funny, entertaining and surprising story that I can just recommend for everyone to listen to, especially if you're interested in Christian Mythology.

    Jede Minute ein Juwel

    Was für Typen! Was für Stimmen! ... und die Weltgeschichte in Nebensätzen erklärt. Auch beim zweiten Hören habe ich vor Lachen gewackelt.

    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.
