Good Omens
Good Omens | Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett
There is a distinct hint of Armageddon in the air. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witch-finders are getting ready to fight the good fight, armed with awkwardly antiquated instructions and stick pins. Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. . . . Right. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan.Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon -- each of whom has lived among Earth's mortals for many millennia and has grown rather fond of the lifestyle -- are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist (which is a shame, as he's a really nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. . . . First published in 1990, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back -- and just in time -- in a new hardcover edition (which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort) that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

You might think there‘s nothing funny about the Apocalypse. Turns out, it‘s hilarious!

A philosophical discourse disguised as a quirky satire.

This book was witty, but a bit long & tedious as well. I‘m glad I listened to the audio version or I might have jumped ship. Still, I‘m glad I listened to it all.

Getting back to this today. I wasn‘t able to listen on my commute this week bc my car doesn‘t have Bluetooth and my charging port is messed up on my phone so when I had it on AUX it kept repeating the part about the Bible that had a typo, omitting “not” to say “Thou Shall Commit Adultery” 5 times before I gave up 🥲🤣

DrexEdit One of my favorite books ever! I watched season one now that it's out on DVD. Even got the husband to watch. He finally understands about the book now! It was a very good series and followed the book quite closely. Welcome to Litsy! 2w

Best news! 🎉 Pratchett & Gaiman always meant to write a part 2 but sadly the book never happened. But there will be more David Tennant as Crowley & Michael Sheen as Aziraphale 🖤🖤🖤

I reread #GoodOmens during my day trip to the capital yesterday. I did not like it as much as the first time.
#Berlin is very beautiful in October🍂 . I went to the Berliner Mauer memorial and the Topography of Terror and visited an exhibition at the new Humboldt Forum.

#sightseeing #travel

ravenlee I reread Good Omens this year (for about the seventh time) and was kind of disappointed, too. It‘s been my favorite book for so long and now I don‘t know what to do! Your pics of Berlin look amazing; I‘ve always wanted to go. Hopefully I‘ll get back to Germany in the next few years and make it to Berlin this time! 2mo

“Aziraphale collected books. If he were totally honest with himself he would have to have admitted that his bookshop was simply somewhere to store them. He was not unusual in this. In order to maintain his #cover as a typical second-hand book seller, he used every means short of actual physical violence to prevent customers from making a purchase. Unpleasant damp smells, glowering looks, erratic opening hours - he was incredibly good at it.”

SaunteringVaguelyDownwards I'm excited too, especially since Gaiman's drawing on ideas he and Prachett had years ago, since he's got the same amazing cast, and collaborating with John Finnemore, whose radio show Cabin Pressure is one of my favorite comedies. 5mo

This book was as good as everybody said. The tongue-in-cheek satire got me every time. I love how it was just slipped into casual conversation (as casual as conversation can be when the end is nigh). It poked fun at religion, lore, and history but in both a respectable and humourous way.

I‘ve already started the show and cannot wait to see more!

Definitely still struggling to read physical books, but until I can - I've been enjoying podcasts and audiobooks while I craft or play Minecraft with my son. Have any of you read these? What did you think?

My keyboard was painfully accurate:
"In a relationship with this book that I think about regularly and am tickled by again and again" ?

The book I was referring to when I originally typed that was Good Omens, so maybe I'm in a relationship with Aziraphale and Crowley? ??

A humorous take on the Apocalypse. The antichrist is a child named Adam who must make the final choice in the Ineffable Plan. Aziraphale and Crowley, an angel of the light and an angel of the dark, respectively, are present throughout to play their parts in the end of the world. The show is much better, sadly. ⭐⭐⭐

PurpleTulipGirl Especially after the series, I would love a book just on the relationship between Aziraphale and Crowley. 10mo

I was already sold on Gaiman but now I'm sold on Pratchett as well. I laughed out loud on several occasions, and there are parts of this book that I think about regularly and am tickled by again and again. The writing is so clever and irreverent, and yet it speaks truth and has heart. I would like a whole separate volume of vignettes chronicling the relationship between Aziraphale and Crowley over the centuries, though. 😇😈

@GingerAntics #goodomens

I definitely only noticed this after watching the show, but I LOVE the moments in the book where people assume that Crowley and Aziraphale are a couple! ?? It makes me happy!

"Can we get on?" said Crowley. "Goodnight, miss. Get in, angel."

Ah. Well, that explained it. She had been perfectly safe after all.

??

GingerAntics I noticed that for the first time, too!!! I remember Gaiman answering a question from a fan about their relationship and he said something like “it is whatever you want it to be, we purposely left that to the imagination.” And I thought it was brilliant. I wonder if, to Neil and Terry, they always were something of a couple. After all those millennia it just kind of happened. It was “ineffable.” 🤣😂🤣 12mo
GingerAntics Who is the first person they each call as soon as the anti-Christ is delivered? The person they each care about most in the world. 🥂 To the world! 🤣😂🤣 (edited) 12mo

#3books that have been made into TV series (which I love)

Good Omens - Gaiman did a fabulous job with the screenplay & it was perfectly cast! I‘ve watched it over two dozen times now 😆

Dirk Gently - I was worried that this book wouldn‘t translate well to a screen because, well, because it‘s Adams. But I think they did a good job & good casting.

Sherlock! - because Benedict ❤️❤️❤️ Plus a fabulous cast & a great job modernizing the stories.

I could not get into this book. Not at all. I rarely give up on a book but I struggled through it and tonight I‘m giving up...I made it 38% in so I think I gave it a good shot. I‘m not a fan of the religious angels vs demon theme and this has so many characters with so many hard-to-follow names that I couldn‘t keep track. I just did not find it interesting...maybe the audio book or tv show is better.
