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!
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.
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?
If this book isn't on your wish list... well that probably means you've already read it. But still, this is the greatest pre post apocalypse story ever. A true must read.
The end of the world will be happening next week, by the way. It takes a band of children (and a dog) plus "agents" from Heaven and Hell to make it all better. Hilarious!
