The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

Put New York Times bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett together . . . and all Hell breaks loose.

I read this because I had to read it for a book group type-thing. Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett unfortunately are two authors that I do not gel with. I recognise their ability as writers and they are good at what they do and obviously have a good and valid fan base. But it leaves me feeling dead inside. I didn't even do so much as smile during this book. I have never found Pratchett's type of humour funny in books. Part of it is that books that make me laugh, I laugh at incidentally. I don't get on well with books written specifically to be humorous.

So sadly to enjoy this book was impossible for me.

This is one of my favorite books, I've read it several times. It takes a topic like religion and makes it so much fun for both the religious and non religious. Pratchett and Gaiman are both wonderful writers on their own but together they make magic.

Hilarious, griping spoof on the apocalypse. A must read for 2012.

A hilarious account of the last days. Only Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman could put an angel, a demon, a massage therapist, a witch, an Antichrist, and a nipple-crazed retired witch-hunter on the same team.
