The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

Put New York Times bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett together . . . and all Hell breaks loose.

For those familiar with both Gaiman and Pratchett, this is an amazing blend of the two authors.

This is an exceptionally clever, laugh aloud book. What else could it be when it's written by a collaboration of two geniuses in their own right. I would recommend the audiobook version. The narrator does a terrific job with the voices and adds to the overall enjoyment.

i liked it but it was a bit to British for me. I had to look up terms and that killed the immersion for me. Witty yes. Clever yes. Funny yes. But besides crowley i didn't feel too much for the characters and Douglas Adams did this in spades. Not the best i will try another off your list.
