Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

book 59: Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

Good Omens is about the end of the world and what would happen if a certain angel and a certain demon decided that they kind of liked mucking about on earth and sort of work together to try and thwart and abort the process. Also, what would happen if the antichrist was accidentally switched at birth and raised in rural England? It's silly but thoughtful British humor, as is expected by these authors (although I mostly have to take other people's word for it as this is my first novel by either of them, having only read Sandman by Gaiman before). It was a fun read. I think I liked Christopher Moore's Lamb a little better, if I consider the genre of thoughtful, irreverent, humorous Christian mythology. But, there were still plenty of giggles and things to consider.
