Good Omens by Neil gaimen and Terry Pratchett

Good Omens ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ By Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchette

My third Neil Gaiman book and this author is seriously brilliant and crazy at the same time. I don’t think this was his first book but it is surly one of his first, co-authored in 1990. From what I understand it has a cult following to this day.

For me, I enjoyed the raucous ride both hilarious and frightening as the story prepares for the coming of the end of the world. Armageddon never looked so entertaining with a Wild cast of characters from a witch who seems a bit “off” to angels and demons and motorcycle apocalyptic gang to an anti-Christ child.

Gaimen’s tendency toward fantasy stories is clear in Good Omens which reminded me often of the 1970’s movie The Omen while also having some similarities to Harry Potter. I enjoyed the book but enjoyed his more resent epic novel American Gods more.

Four stars for Good Omens.
