Good Omens: 12/10/07
Agnes Nutter probably prophesied this but it's still worth celebrating; Good Omens is my 365th review for the year!
Good Omens is the brilliant novel collaboration between Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett with a guest appearance by Death. See, it's the coming apocalypse and Death is one of the Four Horsemen except that Pestilence has quit in a huff and Pollution is filling in for him.
At the center of the world's destruction is the 12 year old Antichrist. He should be living in the United States but he's apparently not. Can the forces of good and evil find him and set things right before they go completely pear shaped?
Good Omens is an enjoyable book with humor similar to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. Gaiman and Pratchett play off of each other well although the pacing of the ending does stutter a bit. I'll forgive the book the last thirty pages since I enjoyed the rest of it so much.

I love this book! I'm thinking I should put it back in my TBR pile so I can re-read it. :)"

You know I think it was called Good Omen, Bad Omen when I bought it from B&N but we loved this book."
