9780060853969: Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch

There is a distinct 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 amassing, the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witch-finders are getting ready to fight the good fight, armed with awkwardly antiquated instructions and stick pins. Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. . . . Right. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan.

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

First published in 1990, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back -- and just in time -- in a new hardcover edition (which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort) that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.

Recensione:

“From beginning to end, GOOD OMENS is side-splittingly funny . . . a ripping good time.” (Rave Reviews)

“If you’ve never read [GOOD OMENS], don’t miss it now. Grade: A.” (Rocky Mountain News)

“It could be called The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Armargeddon.” (Palm Beach Post)

“Reads like the Book of Revelation, rewritten by Monty Python.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“[L]ittle asides, quirky observations, simple puns and parody eventually add up to snorts, chortles and outright laughs.” (San Diego Union-Tribune)

“What’s so funny about Armageddon? More than you’d think . . . GOOD OMENS has arrived just in time.” (Detroit Free Press)

“A direct descendant of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.” (New York Times)

“An utter delight—fresh, exciting, uproariously funny.” (Poul Anderson)

“Outrageous . . . read it for a riotous good laugh!” (Orlando Sentinel)

“I whooped . . . I laughed . . . I was in near hysterics.: (New York Review of Science Fiction)

“One Hell of a funny book.” (Gene Wolfe)

“Hilarious!” (Locus)

“Huge fun.” (Sunday Express (London))

“Irreverently funny and unexpectedly wise . . . Highly recommended.” (Library Journal)
