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.

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 solidly funny read about the apocalypse. The British dry wit, which made the first hundred pages so amusing, however, became a bit tedious and the story slowed in the middle. I pushed through and was rewarded with a thoughtful ending. All in all, it was worth the read.

This is a fun book for light reading, although the story is a bit predictable. Gaiman and Pratchett interact well and their revision of standard mythology is entertaining.

This book is a fantastic read! I was laughing continuously as I read, a fantastic irreverent comedy!
