Mehso-so

It was very clever about the end of the world and the Antichrist being misplaced, etc., but I had a hard time getting into it. I think I would have liked it better 20 years ago or so, when I was more in a mood for it. I'm not quite as much into fantasy / humor now. Series on TV may be good though. I still recommend it for those who like early Neil Gaiman and basic Pratchett.

KathyWheeler The tv series was great. 1w

Finished this one today while running errands. I loved this book. It was super cute. I am looking forward to re-visiting the Prime show (I remember I absolutely loved it) - Pick of Carwash :)

A real change-up compared to what I‘ve been reading, this book is just… fun. Shockingly anticlimactic for a book about the apocalypse, but in a doesn‘t-take-itself-too-seriously kind of way. A nice blend of biblical doom and comedic absurdity. Takes a bit of prior knowledge about England and the Bible, but its generally accessible I think, (and the footnotes certainly helped lol!)

I'm also starting this book. Stopped by a local library and they did not have available
a Jemisin book I wanted so I picked up this one. I like Pratchett and Gaiman so it might be good. Did not see any of the series.

#WrapUp for March

📚 7 total reads for the month.
Enjoy all of them! Last month of pure pleasure reading.

From April I'll have to start-up my studies again and read a few more compulsory books that the fun ones.
But I am to track them as well...
I mean I am reading, just not necessarily what I wish to read.

I‘m giving this read a 3.9⭐️ but in truth as being very generous. I love Neil Gaiman… He is creative, dark, funny and very imaginative. All of these qualities were present in this book, so in that regard it wasn‘t lacking. However, there were so many times that I actually found myself bored can dreading having to go on. Overall the book wasn‘t bad but it wasn‘t great and it kind of left me disappointed. This was also my second #roll100

I love recommending books and try to match a person's personality, but these are some that get brought up again and again, in no particular order:

📚 Good Omens
📚 Neverwhere
📚 Recursion
📚 Lamb
📚 Skyward
📚 The Way of Kings
📚 Flowers for Algernon
📚 The Princess Bride
📚 The Little Prince

Honorable mention: Under the Whispering Door -- recent read, so hasn't been recommended much, but it will be.

Elizabeth2 Good Omens was an excellent book and I almost added it to my list. 😄 I am looking forward to reading Under the Whispering Door because I loved Cerulean Sea so much, which made my list in the same way - recent read but I will be recommending often! 6mo

I finished my Good Omens reread. This is time seven or eight, I think. GO is my feel-good book; but for the first time, I didn‘t love it. The gay jokes really bothered me (more so than in the past; I didn‘t realize how pervasive they are) and the fat jokes, too. Also, I didn‘t love the adaptation when I watched it last summer and it colored my reading.

Now I‘m sad.

Tamra 😔 But sad for the right reasons is some consolation. I am often afraid to reread favorites in case of disappointment. 12mo

Weird book synchronicity - reading HP with the kiddo and just began a reread of my favorite book; and I realized Miranda Richardson was in the adaptations of both. I was reading Madame Tracy to myself today, and then reading Rita Skeeter to the kiddo, and it dawned on me. Odd.

Also, my GO copy looks filthy from reading it so often. And the more I read the less thrilled I am with having watched the GO series. My in-head voices are off now.

Audiobook version.

I normally love Gaiman's work but I just could not get into this. I might try it again down the line as everyone raves about it- or maybe I will just watch the show. Everything felt too clean and the characters were not interesting enough.

For now, I am out, opinion subject to change, but I have too much of a backlog to finish something that feels like pulling teeth.

Sorry Neil, Terry, still a big fan of your works.

This was so witty! I felt like I was retreading the tv show and yet, it was different. So easy to get through! I loved the characters even more than I did before, if that was even possible. A great way to unwind after all the intense fantasies I‘ve read!

I reread Good Omens this past week on a whim. I still enjoyed it, but there is some casual racism that really makes me cringe now. And the idea that Pestilence threw in the towel and became Pollution hasn't aged well 😂

(No, I haven't seen the tv series.)

night_shift The TV movie is very good! If you have the chance, I'd give it a watch! 1y
wanderinglynn I second @UnidragonFrag – the tv series is very good. Gaiman wrote the script and made some needed updates. 1y
effani @UnidragonFrag @wanderinglynn I definitely want to watch the show, but I don't have much tv time and haven't gotten around to it. I hope I can soon, now that the book is fresh in my mind! 1y

If you ever had doubts about religion or having an existential crisis, this book won't help. But it will make you giggle hysterically. You will fall in love with either Aziraphale or Crowley. Or both. After reading you will hum 'Bohemian Rhapsody' every time you enter a car. Bonus: the series is on Amazon and is also very good!

Bailedbailed

This is the second month in a row I tried but couldn‘t commit to this one.

I think of the bail button as a “pause until I‘m in a different mindset” button. Honestly if a book is bad I‘ll still finish it and mark it as a “pan”. I feel like if I catch myself in the right mood I‘d like this one, or maybe I‘ll just check out the show 🤷🏼‍♀️

Taking it off my #bookspinbingo board though and revisit it in a few months.

MsMelissa I bailed on this one and never had any desire to go back and try again. With the exception of Stardust, I am not a fan of Gaiman‘s books. 1y
Annie1215 @Book_Fiend_Melissa I‘ve never read any of his others either, but feel like there‘s a lot of hype. Makes me feel like I‘m missing something. But I‘m not generally in to fantasy or a sci-fi so maybe it‘s just not a good fit. 1y
TheAromaofBooks Sometimes it's just not the right book!! 1y
TracyReadsBooks I read this book but really didn‘t like it—far too much Pratchett and not enough Gaiman for me. That being said, even as I was reading (and hating it) I felt it would be better as a movie or tv show and I have to admit, I really did enjoy the tv adaptation. 1y

With a cast of characters including an angel, a demon, a witch, witch hunters, nuns, lords of hell, a group of kids, and the antichrist hurling towards the end of the world, where can you go wrong?

#TerryPratchett #NeilGaiman #GoodOmens @Branwen

GingerAntics @Branwen I know I‘m a week ahead, but I got to Sunday and the momentum just took me to the end. 2y
Branwen @GingerAntics Hahaha! That's totally fine! I love that feeling; being so caught up in a book that you can't put it down! 😍💕📚 I'll probably be finishing up next week! So that's really cool to hear that you really loved the audio book! Which would you say you like more-the print or audio version? 2y
GingerAntics @Branwen hm. That‘s a though one. The narrator did a really good job and though he wasn‘t/couldn‘t have been trying to be David and Michael, he sort of came off that way. Maybe it‘s just so much of who Az and Crowley are. The audiobook also streamlines the footnotes into the text so there is no back and forth. So maybe the audiobook. It‘s pretty much a toss up, though. My preference may change next week. 2y
GingerAntics @Branwen Totally forgot Satan doesn‘t actually show up in the book. I‘ve got one episode of the show left, so I‘ll wait until next week for that. See, I didn‘t totally finish early. 😂 2y
