separately, neil gaiman and terry pratchett are fabulous...together, cataclismically funny! this book is a great read for anyone, but especially those in love with the discworld series and gaiman's anasi boys.

Laugh out loud fun and games with both heaven and hell. The battle of good and evil isn't all about the sword of truth and demon dances, there are moments of treaty and beneath that white flag both demon and angel peer bewilderdly into the fog and flummery of humanity.
Add to this the mistakes of the divine, the mix-up of the satanic, the baying hound of hell and you've got some Gaiman-y goodness and Pratchett-y prose you won't soon forget.

This is the best book about the apocolypse ever! Pratchett and Gaiman make a great team. Their whole take on the end times is irreverantly hilarious, from the bungling of the baby-switch of the anti-Christ, to the four motorcyclists of the apocolypse, to the demon and angel who are pals, and really kind of like the earth, and don't particularly want it to end. I had to be talked into reading this book the first time, but it has since become one of my favorites.
