Summary: Crowley is a demon sent to earth to seed discord and demonic horror. Aziraphale is an angel meant to watch over earth and keep it’s occupants on the right track. Their bosses didn’t expect them to become the best of friends. But now, the Apocalypse is nigh, and they must work together to do their part in both eencouraging it as per their assignments, and secretly to stop it.
My Thoughts: I’ve read this book before, but after watching the miniseries I really wanted to read it again. It did not disappoint. This book is so funny – a perfect combination of Gaiman’s dark humor and Pratchett’s silly humor. The reading by Martin Jarvis was quite enjoyable.

I have not read this and I have not seen the series. I would like to do both. I will probably give the series a try first.
Oh, you must see the series. Such a gem!
I might need to do a reread again. My wife and I are planning to watch the miniseries here shortly, at the end of the month while I’m recuperating after knee surgery on Oct. 22. I know I loved the book, but it’s been a long time.
I hope you enjoy the series as much as I did!
