Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

(I must apologize for the hiatus, I recently moved to Kansas and started a new job, all of which has been very taxing and time consuming. I did, however, get back to reading – weekends are wonderful like that – and am hoping that the busyness of life does not consume me entirely. Carry on.

The story is a wonderfully funny tale about the apocalypse. Everything and anything has gone wrong, and these two British humour authors are just the writers to tell the tale. Both writers are known for their twisted intellectual humor, and their combination of outstanding wit produce this very odd adventure of an eleven year old boy over the course of a week. I admit a number of the references went right over my head, but those I did put together were sensational. At times I also had a hard time picking the book back up, but I blame that more on my personal current events than the writing itself. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in British humour and is in need of a good laugh (several if you get the intellectual jokes 😉 ).
