This was a very funny book and it had an excelent story too. It's about a demon and an angel (who are friends) who are supposed to bring about Armegeddon except they have been on Earth a long time and really get to like it. So they try to stop Armegeddon. I definately reccomend this book. The first event that happens of Armeggedon is that the antichrist is misplaced, if that gives you any idea of how the rest goes. Although this book is very funny, the plot is actualy quite serios, and it's a good story.

I thought this book was great because it has great humor as well as a good plot. The story is about a demon and angel who have been on earth together since it was made, and they like each other more than they like the other demons/angels on their own side. They accidently gave the baby antichrist to the wrong family and have to work together to fix their mistake. The contrast and cooperation of the characters, interesting situations keep this book interesting thorought the whole story, and it is an easy read no matter how old you are.

No kidding around this time; the world is about to end. This is the real Apocalypse we’re talking about. Armageddon is scheduled for next Saturday, actually, according to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, fifteenth century Witch and fortune-teller. But there are a few kinks in the plan. The ancient rivals of Good and Evil have decided that the end of the world would seriously cramp their lifestyles. Besides, they like the human race. The charmingly clumsy Newton Pulsifer has been recruited to the witch-hunting profession and finds himself smitten with a so-called “occult professional” who is, in fact, the lovely descendent of the aforementioned Agnes Nutter. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride motorcycles. But the biggest obstacle to the end of the world is the Antichrist—an eleven-year-old boy quietly making mischief in the English countryside. Young Adam has grown up with a vague sense of purpose and power, and even his rough-and-tumble pack of best friends and his devoted pet dog (who’s actually a Hound of Hell) can’t predict what Adam will do when the forces of Heaven and Hell collided. This farcical book is a collaboration between two of the top fantasy writers today, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, and their blend of wry sci-fi and dark humor make for a hilarious, devious read. Adam is the calm around which the chaotic, comic mess of Good Omens centers, which makes it more than a fun book to read. It makes Good Omens a clever, irreverent satire that proves the simplest answer is often the best.
