Beschreibung

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.

The queer energy in this one is strong.

It has its weaknesses but the shortcomings are ignorable since the characters are funny, lovable and entertaining (for the most part), the humour sharp and witty and the commentary on point as ever. The story is about Armaggedon. Aziraphel and Crowley, an angel and demon respectively, are tasked to do angelic and demonic things on Earth. But during all this time, they become friends and come to enjoy human things, like food and entertainment. Both decide that Armageddon kinda s*cks so they set out to stop the Antichrist, a child, so they can continue Earthly life. The result is a highly engaging story where two authors clearly went "F*ck it, let's throw in every and any idea we have" and just rolled with everything that popped into their head. They had fun writing and I had fun reading.

Good Book

Habe auch die Serie geschaut und finde beides Klasse! Es ist gut und lustig geschrieben. Es gibt Dinge die im Buch geschrieben sind aber nicht in der Serie und anders rum. Im Buch wird auch mehr auf die Charakter eingegangen, was sie symphatischer. Das Buch hat mich so gefesselt, dass ich es in einem zug durchgelesen habe.
