Coffee and Contemplation: Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

I’m discussing only the book and not the Amazon Prime TV show. I did enjoy the show, but this post is about the book. This was fun to read and was the first Pratchett book I ever read. This caused me to be sucked into the Discworld books from which I will never escape. This was a fun read. It was goofy and quirky and an all-around good time. This is not a horror novel but there are many supernatural characters and supernatural elements. I also think it’s a fun book for teens and pre-teens to read. 

There’s some adult humor but nothing crude or gross. There’s nothing scary in the book but maybe pre-teens won’t like some parts. The story follows an angel and a demon who become close friends on Earth. Their friendship begins at the Garden of Eden and the develop a system to help them both look good to their side of things but never gaining one way or the other. It’s a balance. And they both develop a liking to Earth and most humans. They even like it enough to stop the Apocalypse. It’s a fun Heaven and Hell story.

I recommend this book to everyone.
