Description

Neil Gaiman was the WINNER of the BBC Audio Drama Award 2015 for Outstanding Contribution to Radio Drama

A full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman’s celebrated apocalyptic comic novel, with bonus length episodes and outtakes.

According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday in fact. Just after Any Answers on Radio 4….

Events have been set in motion to bring about the End of Days. The armies of Good and Evil are gathering and making their way towards the sleepy English village of Lower Tadfield. The Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse - War, Famine, Pollution and Death - are assembling. Witchfinder Shadwell and his assistant Newton Pulsifier are also en route to Tadfield to investigate unusual phenomena in the area, while Anathema Device, descendent of prophetess Agnes Nutter, tries to decipher her ancestor’s cryptic predictions.

Atlantis is rising; fish are falling from the sky; everything seems to be going to the Divine Plan. Everything, that is, but for an unlikely angel and demon duo, who have been living on Earth for several millennia and have become rather fond of the place. If they are to prevent Armageddon they’ve got to find and kill the one who will bring it about: the Antichrist himself. There’s just one small problem: someone seems to have mislaid him…

Adapted, sound designed and co-directed by Dirk Maggs (Neverwhere, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) this first ever dramatisation of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s novel features a large cast including Peter Serafinowicz, Mark Heap, Josie Lawrence and Paterson Joseph.

An adaption of one of my all time favorite books

This is a tricky thing to review. I love the story & have read it many many times & I know the details inside out & back to front.

The cast are stellar & the performances are excellent but as a fan of the original I found the adaption quite irksome in places.

In the original, the book has a voice of it's own (almost) with foot notes and asides. these are dropped entirely from the adaption with some of the text clumsily shoe-horned in to characters dialogue or as additional exposition. This for some reason grated with me, every time.

Personally, I felt that an adaption might have worked better with a 'narrator' for the book, or at least for the footnotes but perhaps they feared it would make it more like Hitchhiker's Guide.

Either way it's an excellent audiobook worthy of your time, but fans of the original may find some of the changes a little jarring. New listeners will enjoy every second of it.

Listen to the audiobook, not the adaptation

This adaptation loses a lot of the wit and charm of the book. Many of the clever lines of narrative and action sequences are described aloud by the characters, lending an air of contrivance and breaking my suspension of disbelief over its knee.
While the cast themselves did nothing wrong, this is a piece of fiction that sounds more like an underfunded radio hour than a 'nice and accurate narrative of events leading to the apocalypse'.
As a fan of the book and Dirk Maggs (whose adaptations of 'Neverwhere' and the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy I quite enjoyed), I am disappointed with the quality of this adaptation. Don't waste your money on this, and listen to the audiobook instead if you want a audio narration of 'Good Omens'

I love the book and this is not a replacement for the real thing but it is a brilliantly done radio adaptation and the cast does a wonderful job.

Good Omens is Great!

Fabulous casting, wonderful voices & characterizations. Well done!
Newt & Anathema should have their own sequel. Jolly good Pratchett & Gaiman adaptation. Bravo!

One of my favorite books, brought to life...

A few months ago I downloaded the copy of Neverwhere done in radio dramatization by the BBC and was sadly very dissapointed in its performance. A much loved story, I was easily lost with what was happening even though I have tead it many times. This production on the other hand, was fantastic. Well adapted to the radio audience and wonderfully performed. I would love to hear some of Pratchett's plays or short stories done like this was. Excellent purchase. Wish there was a sequel, or wven if the movie finally took off!

A real audio play rather than a reading

And that puts it in a whole different place. It was fantastic.
I recommend this highly and hope you like it as well.

Great adaptation!

I adore Mark Heap and company. It's a fun listen. I'd recommend the book first as it has the hilarious prose of Pratchett and Gaiman, but this adaptation is solid. If you've read the book you'll enjoy it.

well done

I've been a fan of Good Omens for many years and am glad to have such a great performance of this book.. My only complaint (if there can be one) is on the picky point of how to translate the footnotes into dialogue. I think the adaptors made a valiant effort here but they either might have done either a lot more or just left them out entirely. This is my only complaint though - the performances match what I've always heard in my head, even Adam and the Them. Well worth a listen.

Good all on its own.

I listened to the radio adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, then read the book. The radio drama was fun and then the book added so many more details. I did Good Omens in the other order. If you listen to this first or on its own you will really like it. However if you have read the book you will feel that something is missing.

Great fun

True enough to the story yet adapted very well. Voice actors were mostly stellar. All main roles were brilliantly performed. Thanks, BBC.

Wunderbares Hörvergnügen

Es gibt nicht viele Hörspielproduktionen, die mich derart begeistern. Noch dazu spielen Terry Pratchett (R.I.P.) und Neil Gaiman selbst kurz mit, einfach köstlich, rundum ein Festschmaus für die Ohren!

Vergnügliches Hörerlebnis

Das Hörspiel Good Omens mit einer umwerfenden Klangkulisse bietet vier kurzweilige Stunden allerfeinster Radiokunst. Doch Vorsicht beim Hören in der Öffentlichkeit: es kann vorkommen, dass man - von heftigen Lachkrämpfen geschüttelt - mitleidige Blicke auf sich zieht, wenn man irre kichernd und grinsend in der Straßenbahn sitzt. Wenn das deutsche Radio auch nur ansatzweise solche Produktionen hervorbrächte - ich würde meine GEZ-Gebühr verdoppeln oder verdreifachen!
Das kann nur die BBC: Eine astreine Hörspieladaption von Terry Pratchett's Good Omens, die man sich immer wieder anhören kann. Auch geeignet, wenn man gerade nicht so recht weiß, welches Hörbuch man sich als nächstes anhören soll und einfach nur gute Unterhaltung sucht.

Traumhaft

Diese Hörspiel-Inszenierung der BBC macht einfach nur Spaß und ist ganz großes Kino für die Ohren. Allerdings empfiehlt es sich die Buchvorlage im Voraus zu kennen, um der Handlung problemlos folgen zu können.

If you like it in form of a drama.

I actually wanted to buy the audiobook and ended up with this. it's still a great story and well performed, but I prefer the regular audiobook format.

Loved the book did not like the audio

Turns out I prefer Audiobooks that just read out the book. This dramatization just wasn't for me. Too much fuss and harder to follow. I'll stick to "regular" audiobooks in the future.
