Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch – by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

This is just about what you would expect from these authors. Fantastical storytelling with humor and, in the end, a moral. A story of the forces of Heaven and Hell coming together to, well, actually, to thwart what they should be instigating.

One on hand we have the Anti-Christ living as a normal eleven year old boy and his relationship with his friends. Then we also have Crowley, Hell’s angel, and Aziraphale, Heaven’s angel, involved in what could almost be called a “buddy” story. There’s also witches and witch hunters, myriad others, and, of course, the impending apocalyptic end of the world.

I’m not sure who contributed what, but Gaiman and Pratchett have come up with a story that keeps you turning the pages. It may not find a place on the top 100 books to read in a lifetime, but I found it to be well-written with humor and style. Your mileage may vary.
