Book: Good Omens

 Book:Good Omens

Author: Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Pages: 400

This is my 55th read for the year

This is the story of angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley who have lived on earth since its creation.  Over all the years together they have formed a friendship and a liking to humanity.  Crowley is informed he must deliver the Anitchrist to unsuspecting parents to be raised until it is time for Armageddon.  Aziraphale and Crowley now have 11 years to figure out how to stop Armageddon and the end to their precious humans.  

With the help of a Witch and a Witch Hunter, Aziraphale and Crowley come up with a plan to stop this war.  However the powers that be in Hell and Heaven want the war and will do anything they can to make sure it happens and earth is destroyed.

I love a good Neil Gaiman book.  I don't know how I have missed reading this book.  I did see the TV show (two seasons on Amazon Prime) and it follows the book quite well - at least the first season which is where the book ends.  The book is funny, and clever and a good read overall.  My only critique that lowered it a star was that at times I found it too wordy.  There were large sections of the book that didn't really move the story along that I felt could have been shortened.

Stars: 4
