And then about halfway through, I realized that I just wasn’t really laughing as much anymore. Despite being the harbinger of the Apocalypse, he has lived a perfectly normal life as the son of typical English parents, and as a result has no idea of his true powers.
So I agreed to give it another shot. Unpleasant damp smells, glowering looks, erratic opening hours – he was incredibly good at it. And I could never enjoy this. Neil Gaiman Hardcover Buemos.

You’d think that reading it 5 years apart might have loosened something in me. Born in the UK, he now lives in the United States.

I was a little disappointed with the ending, though. I highly recommend readers of the book to listen to the BBC dramatisation as well! Gerry description doesn’t really do the story justice, but that busnos definitely hits me in the same place as the book.
Sir Terry Pratchett sold his first story when he was thirteen, which earned him enough money to buy a second-hand typewriter.
Just humanity, in all the multifaceted nature of it, in its righteousness and wretchedness, love and cruelty, strengths and weaknesses, stupidity and wisdom.

This was one of the funniest books I have ever read. It felt like it was written by two guys who had just finished school and were ready to explode their ideas into some creative project that could be a piece of brilliance or a real chore depending on the reader tastes. Then there is the Antichrist himself, now 11 years old and not exactly what Heaven or Hell had imagined.
Hell may have all the best composers, but heaven has all the best choreographers.

As a result, Armageddon goes off with a few hitches. I knew from the first page that this book would not work for me. And for all of that it gets the ineffable five stars. I actually laughed out loud as I read Good Omens.
There are quotes in this book that just make you stop reading and think for a second. I know a lot of people, especially fantasy fans, love this book, and I will admit that it is romp-y, easily digestible, and certainly doesn’t betray the inclinations of either author.
