People keep telling me how great Terry Pratchett is. People keep telling me how great Neil Gaiman is. And okay, they might be right, because this book is delightful. The end of the world is at hand and the armies of Good and Evil are called to fight the final war. Except neither side really wants to go. Sure, the higher ups on both sides are all for it, but the boots on the ground have been on earth for a while and kind of like it here, and find they have more in common with each other than they do with their bosses. Meanwhile, someone has misplaced the Anti-Christ and things can’t really get started without him. So demon Crowley and angel Aziraphale have both been ordered to straighten the mess out and get on with the mayhem, but instead they team up to follow the letter of their orders while trying to wriggle out of the intent of their orders. The book is a very gentle kind of comedy with charming characters that will leave you in a good mood.
