    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.

    All it's hyped up to be

    As someone with a Catholic upbringing and agnostic adulthood I found this very entertaining, clever and meaningful.

    A cultural classic and a must read.

    The performance added depth and comedy to the characters and helped make them unique and recognisable

    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.

    Good book, performance gets old quick

    The book is great fun, loved it for years. This performance tho (at least for me) was exhausting after a while. The Narrator tries to give specific voices to every character, but he just has three main "modes": the sluggish, dumb idiot, the confused old man and the edgy soft spoken demon. It's fun at first but when every character has one of these three rather forced voices - in the same accent - it gets old way too fast. Listening for long stretches of time is irritating, and to me personally it's a big negative as I like to listen to these while I work all day long. It would have been better if the Narrator just read the book without using silly voices. I regret not getting the full-cast production.

    Perfect!

    I love the story and the way it was read! Well, you could never really go wrong with a Neil Gaiman! Aaand I know I'm so late into the game, but this made me very interested to read/listen to Terry Pratchett's! As for the narrator, I wasn't too keen at first but Martin Jarvis is talented and would love to listen to more of his works.

    Sweet Story on How/Why to Keep the Planet Alive

    A sort of kids retelling of the argument for social engineering and reasonable reform. The Apocalypse (the undoing) and the total redoing of the world are refused, and humanity gets another chance to behave reasonably (maybe outside the pulls and pushes of external forces).
    The book is a great piece of English humor. The dialogues between the kids are warm and endearing.

    Loved every second of it.

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

    Witty fun

    Very fun, smart humor and easy to listen to. The mini series is incredibly faithful to the book.

    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.

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

    A real gem

    If you love Terry Pratchett and or Neil Gaiman, this book is a must have. Very enjoyable experience. A very human and humorous tale of the end of the world. With a lot of truth hidden behind the jokes. The narrators voice is soothing and easy for me to listen to.
