While I'm not a big fan of Terry Pratchett, I do really enjoy Neil Gaiman's work so I finally took the plunge to read this collaborative work. It's great – so great that as it winds its way towards a conclusion it becomes very difficult to tell who wrote what. The idea of a modern apocalypse being frustrated by a bumbling devil and a studious angel working together to save the planet, all the while racing against time to find Satan's Spawn before the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse can, as the last Witchfinder teams up with the direct descendant of Agnes Nutter, Witch, is far too ridiculous to ignore. Buy it.

Description

There is a hint of Armageddon in the air. According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the Armies of Good and Evil are massing, the four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witchfinders are getting ready to Fight the Good Fight. Atlantis is rising. Frogs are falling. Tempers are flaring, and everything appears to be going to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. They've lived amongst Humanity for millennia, and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle. So if Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the AntiChrist (which is a shame, really, as he's a nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's brilliantly dark and funny take on mankind's final judgment is back, in a new hardcover edition which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.
