The classic collaboration from the internationally bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, soon to be an original series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant. " Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It''s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick."-- Washington Post According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter , Witch (the world''s only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon--both of whom have lived amongst Earth''s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle--are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . . Note: Title is available in different packaging, however content is the same.
Taking a cynical look at the horror genre, this book features Crowley and Aziraphale, two friends who attempt to prevent the prophesised Armageddon. When the Antichrist is born they divert him from his original home at the American Embassy to Tadfield, where he grows into an unkempt individual.
Dieu et le Diable en ont ensemble décidé : l'Apocalypse est pour demain ! À Londres, un ange secondaire libraire d'ancien et un petit démon dandy amateur de rock et de grosses cylindrées, employés permanents de Dieu et de Satan sur Terre, sont chargés de son organisation. Mais, guère enthousiastes à l'idée de la fin d'un monde auquel ils ont fini par s'attacher, ils vont allier leurs forces et leur ruse pour abuser leurs patrons. Mission : faire capoter l'Apocalypse !
Un roman purement irrésistible, délirant et désopilant, débordant de finesse et truffé de références musicales, télévisuelles ou de films de série B : il est pour les Diables de Vauvert une référence incontournable, un titre culte, mieux, une carte de visite !
There is a hint of Armageddon in the air. According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the Armies of Good and Evil are massing, the four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witchfinders are getting ready to Fight the Good Fight. Atlantis is rising. Frogs are falling. Tempers are flaring, and everything appears to be going to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. They've lived amongst Humanity for millennia, and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle. So if Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the AntiChrist (which is a shame, really, as he's a nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. This edition features a new revised text, approved by Neil Gaiman and the Pratchett Estate, which clears up many typos and errors from previous editions. It also features twelve full colour illustrations from Paul Kidby - Terry Pratchett's artist of choice - and a plethora of line drawings.
