Publisher's Summary

Nominated for the Audiobook Download of the Year, 2008.According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch - the world's only totally reliable guide to the future - the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea...The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the apocalypse are revving up, and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not particularly looking forward to the coming rapture - having thoroughly enjoyed life on earth amongst the mortals. If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist. There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him...

It's the end of the world... but not as we know it

Fantastic... one of my favourite books of all time and the one that introduced me to the genius that is Neil Gaiman. At times as laugh out loud funny as the best Pratchett and at others as dark as Gaiman gets. No doubt I will listen to this almost as many times as I've read it!

Laugh out Loud

I chose this book purely because I really enjoy Stephen Briggs' narration. I was not disappointed. The story was great fun. The story (which I don't want to spoil) briefly revolves around the swapping of a baby at the maternity hospital with the son of the Devil. This is messed up by the demon and the consequences of that are hysterical. There are quite a few characters in this book - all relevant to the plot and at times brief glimpses of other characters not so relevant but they tie in. I listened to it in the car on the way to work and must have got some strange looks as I laughed out loud at times! Stephen Briggs is brilliant as usual. I love the way he portrays the characters. His voice of DEATH is spot on. If you like Terry Pratchett you will not be disappointed. It is great.
