I truly do not believe a book has ever made me laugh as hard as Good Omens. The story is side splitting and the friendship between the main angel and demon is great. Just freaking hilarious. Plus, it eased me into the world of Neil Gaiman, not something I would recommend jumping headfirst into. Since then I've read almost everything Gaiman has done, and loved it all. If he started a church, i would totally join. It wasn't all Gaiman's doing though. He co-wrote it with Terry Pratchett, who was probably responsible for the humor. Gaiman isn't exactly a funny guy in any of his other books. I've read some of Pratchett's other work, but didn't care for it. Without the philosophy and darkness Gaiman lends to Good Omens, Pratchett's work just seems kind of fluffy and boring. This book however, was pure gold through and through. Absolutely a must read.
