I'm steadily becoming a full-fledged Neil Gaiman fan. Each book I read of his is better than the last. This one, Good Omens, is a collaboration with Terry Pratchett, the creator of the Discworld series. This is an intelligent and hilarious telling of the birth of the Antichrist and the impending apocalypse. It tackles such topics as the origins of evil, the true nature of angels and demons and the number of nipples on a witch. No really, it does. Leave it to the Brits (and the British ex-pats) to make the apocalypse funny. I mean, how can you not like a book that has a "meat and two veg" joke.
The next book I will be reading by Neil Gaiman will probably be The Graveyard Book and I'm really excited.
A little bit angel and bit of demon as well,
Buy Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch on Amazon or find it at your local library.
