Welcome to the the first ever Transworld book club! The first 25 people to comment on the below thread will recieve a copy of Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman - to celebrate it's inclusion in World Book Night.

If you've already read Good Omens, tell us what you loved about it, why you didn't like it, if you like the cover and any other salient points you want to mention!

Nikki-ann (nixy) | 23 comments I'd love a copy!

"According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter — the world's only totally reliable guide to the future — the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea..." <-- Gotta love a synopsis like that! :)

Crusader (CrusaderZA) | 9 comments I've been meaning to read this for ages now. Just haven't managed to get to it yet.

Teresa (LovelyTreez) | 29 comments I'd love a copy to review - I love Neil Gaiman but have never quite got on with Pratchett so this could be the one to turn me! ;-)

Lindsay (thelittlereaderlibrary) I love the synopsis Nikki-ann! Sounds a great read.

Jo Barton (Jaffareadstoo) | 44 comments I'd love a copy to read and review - I love Neil Gaiman and always wanted to get round to reading Terry Pratchett. Good Omens sounds fascinating !

Thanks !!

Chris Parfitt (Chris_P_Bacon) | 14 comments I would love a copy please. Love Terry Pratchett's books so this would be right up my street I am sure.

Natalie I read this a year or so ago, after a friend raved about it, but I wasn't overly keen, I got very confused and didn't really get it, not sure why, as everything about it suggested it was right up my street! I've since read another 2 Pratchetts, and loved 1, but wasn't overly bothered with the other, although I will get stuck in to more when I can! I haven't yet read any other Gaiman, but have a couple on the shelves, I have seen the film of Stardust though, and adore it!!

Fiona (Titch) Hunt (Titch) I think I have a copy here, will check as soon as I can x

message 35: by Kim (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kim (MunchKim) | 8 comments Thanks for my book Lynsey, I started it last night, I've not read either author before but I'm enjoying what I've read so far :-)

Jo Barton (Jaffareadstoo) | 44 comments Thanks for sending this book to me Lynsey. I started it over the weekend and after a spell of reading some quite "heavy" review books, Good Omens was like a ray of sunshine. I laughed out loud so many times - it's completely irreverent in places, but I loved it.

Ashley | 1 comments If I'm not too late, I'd love a copy of Good Omens! I just started reading a library copy and love it. It would be a great addition to my personal collection that I can share with others.
