    Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

    Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

    The book starts out with the birth of the antichrist who is supposed to bring about Armageddon. There is a demon and an angel that have grown quite fond of earth and set out to thwart the impending destruction of mankind. Pretty funny but in some parts slightly over the top, it seems like they're trying too hard to be funny all the time.

    I love this book! I think it was the beginning of my crush on Neil Gaiman (but i love Pratchett too, even if he's old.)
    Sometimes it gets a little blah-ish but mostly is like chocolate made into a book

    Yes I have to agree I loved this book, I just thought it was great and it had me almost rolling on the floor at times.

    One of the things I never forget, is how all music, after being left in a car for 10 years, turns into Queen.

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe
