Andrew's Recommended Beach Read:

"The late Pratchett, and Gaiman, have crafted a very droll, British take on the Apocalypse, infusing what is ostensibly a tale of the end of the world with their signature understated wit and charm. We meet the son of the devil, his hound, and his friends, witches and witch finders, a thoroughly modern Four Horsemen, angels and demons. It is these last two that underpin the whole tale, with an odd couple relationship between an angel and a demon, and their comedic and often bumbling efforts to prevent the Apocalypse. This satirical take on the idiosyncratic minutiae of life (and death) cannot disguise the authors deep love of life, and their hope for humanity amidst all the weirdness and mess. This is what makes it a good beach read; it is at once cynical and hopeful, and hugely funny on a subject often treated with the utmost seriousness."

The classic collaboration from the internationally bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, now an original series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant.

Season 2 of Good Omens coming soon!

"Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick."—Washington Post


According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.

And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

His novels have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he was the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal.
