by Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman
Pratchett and Gaiman combine humor, religion, and wonderful writing to create a book that a reader cannot put down. Good Omens had me laughing in public to the point where people stared. Also, the apocalyptic plot line tingled my religious studies senses and kept me intellectually enthralled. It is not difficult to understand how Good Omens has developed a cult following.
I apologize for the brevity of this review, but Good Omens is neither a book to be analyzed nor a book I can find to have a flaw (besides it’s too short). Go forth and find a copy of Good Omens and you will not be disappointed.
