- Author Terry Pratchett
Written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, you have to expect this book to be slightly crazy, pretty funny, and insanely well structured. It was all of those things. I’m not sure it was 100% to my tastes, but I did enjoy it, particularly the way all the characters seemed to be drawn inexorably towards each other.
I mostly liked Crowly and Aziraphale who made a brilliant odd couple, and could do with plenty of adventures of their own outside of this one. The mix up of the two children was also good, and I enjoyed the four horsemen of the apocalypse updating themselves depending on what the earth is like nowadays.
Some of the further characters were a bit confusing to me, but even when I wasn’t totally sure how they fitted into things, they were still fun to read. And yay for Death showing up with his capital letters again!
