I can not express how much I love this book or what effect it has had on my life. I found it in a neighbors trash as a teenager and it was my first exposure to both Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Searching for other works by Gaiman got me interested in Graphic Novels after picking up his Sandman series at the Library. Later I also sought other books by Pratchett and discovered the Discworld series, books that I now count as my all time favorites. I highly recommend this book, I now own several copies, and the original is in tatters because I have passed it around to so many friends.
Enjoy!

I love this book. Absolutely hysterical. I've read it no less than 5 times and it's fantastic every time. I've also owned 3 different copies of it because they wind up being stolen from me, everyone I know that has read it has loved it. I definitely reccomend it.

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy meets Monty Python in a very amusing version of the biblical apocalypse. Will probably only appeal to those who enjoy this type of humor. On those grounds, your mileage may very. Two thumbs up from me!

Who would have thought that the coming of Armageddon would be hilariously funny? Nobody but Pratchett and Gaiman---and they make the readers crack up laughing too!
We hear the world will end on a Saturday . . . next Saturday.
But Sister Mary Loquacious of the Chattering Order has misplaced the Antichrist. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (in Hell's Angels leathers) ride motorcycles. And the representatives of Heaven and Hell have decided that they actually LIKE the human race . . . so do we absolutely HAVE to hold Armageddon now?

This is the first time I have read a book by either author and I'll definitely be reading more of both. Very few books have made me laugh out loud and this was one of them. The style and tone reminded me a little of Douglas Adams.

A clever and entertaining read.

I read this book months ago and I cant not remember much about it except the end. Which I do not want to spoil. There were funny things about about the book like, when the Antichrist wishes for his hell-hound and it turns out to be a small and tiny dog because that is what he wishes for.

What is left that I remember is not that great, which could be because of the subject matter. I dont usually read Apocalyptic stuff even if it is tongue in cheek but read this on recommendation of my husband. I just did not find this one remember-able. I find similar problems with American Gods as well but enjoyed some of Pratchetts work alone.

I think if you like British humor and Monty Python you might grasp the humor better then I did.

A good but not great book that was mildly amusing, but not hilariously funny. To get the most out of the book, you really have to read it closely with lots of attention to the details. The humor is usually subtle and occasionally obscure. The book felt more like a Terry Pratchett novel than one by Neil Gaiman, not that it matters, just that it was interesting to analyze because so few books are written in teams.
