#3 Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

My Rating: 8 out of 10 stars

A very interesting book. I definitely detected the writing style solely as Pratchett’s though, and wonder where Gaiman’s influence came in. Perhaps in the design of some of the main characters… I suppose I can see a little of Gaiman’s style there.

The ending left me wanting for a sequel. I wonder if there will be one…. After all, Adam (the Antichrist) did divert Armageddon, but at the end, you find the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley talking about a bigger effable Plan, and then the Further Nife and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter: Concerning the Worlde that Is To Com shows up on Anathema’s doorstep, so you’re left wondering what the future holds for these guys, especially since Agnes Nutter found it interesting enough to write about again.
