9780060853983: Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch

From two delightful imaginations comes a comic masterpiece in which the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride motorcycles, the hound of the devil chases sticks, and the end of the world is subject to Murphy's Law.

Product Description:

According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter - the world's only totally reliable guide to the future - the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea...

Review:

Pratchett (of Discworld fame) and Gaiman (of Sandman fame) may seem an unlikely combination, but the topic (Armageddon) of this fast-paced novel is old hat to both. Pratchett's wackiness collaborates with Gaiman's morbid humour; the result is a humanist delight to be savoured and read again and again. You see, there was a bit of a mix-up when the Antichrist was born, due in part to the machinations of Crowley, who did not so much fall as saunter downwards, and in part to the mysterious ways as manifested in the form of a part-time rare book dealer, an angel named Aziraphale. Like top agents everywhere, they've long had more in common with each other than the sides they represent, or the conflict they are nominally engaged in. The only person who knows how it will all end is Agnes Nutter, a witch whose prophecies all come true, if one can only manage to decipher them. The minor characters along the way (Famine makes an appearance as diet crazes, no-calorie food and anorexia epidemics) are as much fun as the story as a whole, which adds up to one of those rare books which is enormous fun to read the first time, and the second time, and the third time.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: HarperCollins UK | The Nice and Accurate Pophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch | »Es war keine dunkle und stürmische Nacht. Eigentlich sollte es eine dunkle und stürmische Nacht sein, aber auf das Wetter ist eben kein Verlaß.« Die Geburt des Antichristen steht unter keinem guten Stern. Eigentlich soll der junge Warlock von den finsteren Engeln Erziraphael und Crowley zum gefürchteten Höllenfürst erzogen werden. Doch statt für die Apokalypse interessiert sich der Junge viel mehr für Baseball, seine Briefmarkensammlung und Kaugummi mit Bananengeschmack. Es stellt sich heraus, daß das Kind im Krankenhaus vertauscht wurde. Nun gilt es, den wahren Antichristen aufzuspüren. Zudem begreifen Erziraphael und Crowley, daß die Erde eigentlich doch gar keine so üble Gegend im Universum ist. Doch der Termin für den Weltuntergang rückt unaufhaltsam näher | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 210 gr | 173x105x28 mm | 432 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780060853983
