‘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.
‘Wickedly funny’ Time Out
‘The Apocalypse has never been funnier.’ Clive Barker
‘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
‘Reads like the Book of Revelation, rewritten by Monty Python.’ San Francisco Chronicle
‘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’ Locus
