really liked it

I loved the concept of an Angel and a Demon trying to stop the predicted Armageddon from happening. Why? Because they each like living among humans and eternity will be rather boring when this world ends.
And it all starts with their journey to find the Antichrist, “the Destroyer of Kings, Angel of the Bottomless Pit, Father of Lies and Lord of Darkness”...

Written with the funny/intelligent lines that are common in all Gaiman’s novels, this one was written with Terry Pratchett, and the result is a satirical novel that makes you want to think how crazy some of the lines sound, because they actually make sense...

“God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e. everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.”
― Terry Pratchett, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch

Have you ever heard of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse? Here we have the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse (because times have changed) and what if the AntiChrist disagrees with his role in the whole plan?

Good Omens the TV series is one of the most anticipated shows of 2019. I’m looking forward to seeing this book adaptation!
