Purchased on Mighty Ape

I adore this book: this purchase is to replace my original (completely worn out) copy. Pratchett and Gaiman effectively satirise Omen the movie, quite a few New Age “superstitions, and the Book of Revelations all in one heartily funny bundle. See what happens from the Angel kicking Adam and Eve out of the garden of Eden and worrying about it in conversation with the Serpent. Take it from there when the Antichrist moves toward Armageddon; which Agnes Nutter, witch, had predicted would be Saturday. And she was always right, because that's what "nice” means: absolutely accurate… Apparently (see the Appendix “good Omens, the Facts”) it's a cult classic, and a lot of other people have copies in similar condition to my original one. Good on them, I say.

Please note this is for one book, you will receive either the black cover or the white cover. Unfortunately, we are unable to honour requests for a specific cover.

According to “The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter,” “Witch” (the world's only “completely” accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon–both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle–are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.

And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .


San Francisco Chronicle
“Reads like the Book of Revelation, rewritten by Monty Python.”

New York Review of Science Fiction
“I whooped . . . I laughed . . . I was in near hysterics.:

Palm Beach Post
“It could be called The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Armargeddon.”

Rocky Mountain News
“If you’ve never read [GOOD OMENS], don’t miss it now. Grade: A.”


Orlando Sentinel
“Outrageous . . . read it for a riotous good laugh!”

Sunday Express (London)
“Huge fun.”

New York Times
“A direct descendant of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

“The birth of the Antichrist in a London hospital begins the countdown to Armageddon. As the forces of both Heaven and Hell anticipate the coming battle to decide the world's fate, a desperate few–including an angel with a taste for rare books, a demon in mirrorshades, the descendant of the world's most accurate prophetess, a part-time witchfinder, four young children, and a dog–race against time to prevent it. Irreverently funny and unexpectedly wise, this collaboration between comics writer Gaiman and Discworld series author Pratchett fuses fantasy and comedy into an untrammeled romp through the latter days. Highly recommended for fantasy and general fiction collections.” Library Journa
