I’m re-reading Good Omens right now. I was actually looking for Neverwhere, but our local bookstore did not have it i stock. So I got the only Neil Gaiman book they had, even though I already knew it. It’s hilarious.

Short plot summary: Armageddon is coming about, and the world will end. Aziraphale (an angel) and Crowley (a fallen angel), have lived among humans so long that alll that free will stuff has rubbed off on them, and they kinda like humans and earth, so they decide to interfere with the ineffable plan and stop Armageddon…

If you like Terry Pratchett, you will like this book. But it’s not one of his usual Discworld books or something like Johnny and the dead – the dark humour and great storytelling of Neil Gaiman add a very new twist, making this one of the best books either author has written. My first Gaiman book, this left me hungry for more.
