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

mymira89, August 4, 2012

If you want a book that will make you laugh out loud while excitedly turning its pages; if you want to read something that provides deep thought while still provoking a child-like sense of innocence; if you want a story weaved from the minds of two brilliant authors who have obviously never stopped letting their imagination take over, read this book.

With characters to fall in love with instantly, and enough twists in its plot to keep even the brightest interested, Good Omens pulls the reader in and grips them until the end. In the midst of the lighthearted hilarity, some heartwarming moments, and a few heart-racing ones as well, the intricate plot cleverly weaves itself together in ways impossible to predict.

It is highly recommended for lovers of adventure, fun, and laughing until your cheeks hurt. Fans of Terry Pratchett will not be disappointed; however, it is excellent as an introduction to his writing as well.

I’ve now read it three times and it is still one of my all time favorite books.
