Description

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

Sometime hard to follow

The story is sometime hard to follow. The reader makes no pause between chapters and in dialogues. Some voices are too similar to distinguish.

Not the best version

You’ll find better audio versions of this book elsewhere (and apparently could find it here until recently), but this is currently the only one here, presumably because it’s the newest. Martin Jarvis reads well, but I disagree with some of his choices in characters’ voices.
I’ll return it as soon as the Stephen Briggs version becomes available again.

Just too long winded

Good story, but they could have cut 30% and it would have been a better book.

What else can you do after you finish the Amazon mini series?

I watched the (mini) series but - obviously - needed more! Which is why I downloaded this audiobook :) It did the trick, although I believe the film version was better than the book (something that happens way too rarely). In any case, I enjoyed the audiobook and can recommend!

Even the 4th time round, this book is awesome

This is the only book I’ve ever read more than once.
I simply love the dark humour of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

Martin Jarvis did them proud . His narration is flawless.

Loved every second of it.

Jarvis did a marvellously especially with the impersonation of David Tennant's performance in the show.

Great introduction to Pratchett!

Narrator does an excellent job of incarnating the ineffably joyous world of Pratchett and Gaiman.

Book owns

Id thought the TV series (which I watch 2 times before book) was very accurate. I still think, but twice the amount of fun in book, as well as some of special effects was ofcourse made for TV. God (has?) forbid the possibility that any TV or movie ending make people actually have to imagine what will happen. Example "Sopranos"...

Anyway, well worth time even if seen TV serie

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.

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.

einfach wunderbar

als Fan der Bücher kann ich nur sagen, ein Hörgenuß
der Sprecher ist pointiert und auch für einen Nicht-native -english- Hörer sehr gut und einfach verständlich!
