What is the book about?

The plot centres around the oncoming end of the world as accurately predicted by a witch and prophetess by the name of Agnes Nutter and an angel and demon, respectively named Arizaphale and Crowley, hoping to stop it. It portrays modern religion in a way that is both endlessly funny, a little mocking, and always engaging. It also took an interesting look at the nature of belief and the flexibility of human morality, that couldn’t have been put more eloquently.

Who is it aimed at?

When reading I often have a clue as to what group of people a book is more suited to right away, but with the intense almost inhuman nature of this book, I think it’s something that could be read by practically anyone.

What did you enjoy most about it?

Out of the many reasons I loved Good Omens, If I had to choose my favourite part it would be how many unique and often unbelievable plot points it was able to make seem so effortlessly normal and easy to understand.

What did you enjoy least?

When I adore a book as much as I now do this one, it’s near impossible to write this section of my review but if I could change one thing about Good Omens I could change, I felt like it was so fast-paced that I would have loved to be able to savour some of it more.

Which character would you most like to meet?

This is a book made entirely of immensely fascinating characters but I’ve known the answer to this particular question for a while. If I could meet any one character it would most certainly be the Delivery Man, for his interesting experiences and dedication to his job.

Why should someone buy this book?

There is no way to explain this other than the fact that you just absolutely must.
