Two of modern literature's best writers

I would be wasting your valuable time if I were less than direct. Good Omens is one of the funniest and most engaging books I have ever read. Now take the time you've saved by my brevity and use it to start reading this book that much sooner.

There are things and really liked about this book and things I personally got annoyed with.

Things I didn't like were: Rambling, unfunny unnessesary whole pages of writing. Besides Aziraphael <3, Crowley <3, and the four horsepersons I didnt care at all for any of the other switching muiltiple and often random fleeting characters point of views with their rambling usually not quite funny and, except for a few key lines you might miss that add something to the plot, very skippable sceens. There were funny and interesting bits but overall an annotated version of this book would rock.

Only Aziraphale and Crowleys parts are worth reading all the way through. These two are interesting for being a not quite pure Angel and a not compleately evil in fact has a good side Demon. Besides them I wanted almost everyone elses part to be annotated for me.

Adam(a very central character) and his Them gang are a compleate bore. The author even admits through one of the characters saying it that their 'conversations' ramble (I cant use that word enough). Its more like 6 year old chatter chatter debate chatter, boring!

I guess it was a sort of a whos to say what some might find funny and others dont so they left all the rambling that would appeal to different people? I just did not like the 'voice' of the authors throughout this. But besides that, I was really into the plot and I wanted to know what was going on. I even stoped halfway and told myself to stop skipping and restarted the book so I could get it. And of course some of the characters were very very memorable and I want to hear more about. I picked mine you can pick yours.

    Maybe this book is funnier for folks living in England, but I didn't laugh at all. Real disappointment.

    I can't even finish this book!!!!! I really wanted to like it but I can't. I have tried three times to read this book and each time I start I get to about the third or forth chapter and think this book stinks! It is all over the place, very hard to follow and just not that funny. I don't like to not finish a book I paid for so I guess maybe I will try to read it another time.

    Highly recommend!

    Hard to put down and some laugh out loud parts. Loved it the first time I read it several years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed reading it again.

    Impossible to follow! Zero stars

    I can read Tolstoy and enjoy, but this trash was an involuted mess with storylines going off in every direction. I want a refund. Worse than a bad acid trip.

    Confusing

    This book started well, with wit and great characters... but the more I read the more confused I became with the way it changed story lines without transition. Some stories were also very tangential.

    I must have missed something.

    I don't usually write reviews but when I look at all the four and five stars that this book received I wonder if I read the same book as everyone else.

    I didn't find the book at all amusing, I thought it was just inane. It was painful but I did finish it.

    Don't bother

    I bought this because of the ratings but don't waste your money. I thought it would be a spoof, which it is, but all over the place. Put it down several times and then thought I'm going to get through this, can't

    Good Omens

    Just could not get into this book. It was difficult to finish it. It did not keep my interest. I know its well known but it was not for me.
