* Good Omens - Book Review..

Brilliant and deceivingly demanding while being extremely interesting! Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett write as if they were born to co-author a book.

The characters were off the charts, Crowley (a demon -or fallen angel- that is too lazy and cool to be really evil) and Aziraphale (an angel who isn't 100% angelic, and a part time book dealer), are the most entertaining and perhaps most human characters throughout the story. I fell in love with this book as soon as it described Crowley as "an angel who did not so much Fall, as Saunter Vaguely Downwards!".

Atlanteans, Americans and Tibetan tunnels; angels, demons, hellhounds and witches; tapes that turn into ‘Best of Queen’ after too long in the car; the four horsemen of the apocalypse; Beelzebub and Metatron; and the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter – the strange forces of heaven and hell have been unleashed, and by next Saturday (just after tea) the world will end..oh, and someone has misplaced the antichrist!!

4 stars because the plot became a bit muddy at times, nevertheless the book is very funny and has several really cool music references as well, which i liked!

One word of advice: Don't skip the footnotes!
