Publisher's Summary

A brand-new full-cast audio production of Good Omens, the internationally beloved novel and collaboration by best-selling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Starring Michael Sheen as Aziraphale, David Tennant as Crowley and Rebecca Front as the Narrator.

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....

Don't miss season two of Good Omens, coming soon to Amazon Prime Video.

It’s beautiful

The performances are flawless and the voices fit the characters perfectly. The novel in itself is brilliant, but we already knew that.

Funny and genius

The text is hilarious, and the performance really makes the best out of it. I think I wouldn't enjoy it this much even if I read it myself. And the book is just so well written with so many sophisticated ideas and humor. Great listening!

That's the way to do it!!

A big thank you and kudos to Headline for this excellent new production of Good Omens.
Whatever voices you have in your head, work. When you have someone reading it then often, it doesn't.
This is the way all audio-books should be done: unabridged but with a cast so you don't get men who sound like women, women who sound like men and children who sound like adults pretending to be children-and a lot of silly voices.
It also means you can do away with all the 'Said XXX.' which can be very distracting sometimes. You have a natural conversation and you can tell who everyone is without exaggerated or silly voices.
They should be recorded like putting on a play. Assemble a cast, let them rehearse together and then do the production.
So often recordings clearly have been made on one run through because the intonation is wrong or the reader has started with the wrong accent and it's clear they only start to really get the characters after they are a fair way in. Having a troop also avoids those times where vocabulary just isn't up to pronunciation, and more people means more insight.
This is a brilliantly funny book and a big thanks once again to Headline for choosing a cast that really understands comedy.
You must have people that know how to deliver a funny line to get the best out of it.
Especially with comedy where there's a big difference between a reading and a performance.
A bad reading just kills all the comedy
I haven't got much to say about the book. It's beloved by so many people and so famous.
It's probably one of a kind. Wickedly funny, clever, challenging. Just a complete all round delight.
What a collaboration! Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. As Neil says in the preamble: a couple of mates having fun. Boy, does that come across! Just so much fun. But such beautifully crafted fun.
This is a production worthy of such a good book.
You don't necessarily need big names though, and there are literally thousands of good actors who could do a good job.
Please take note Penguin.

Such a brilliant and fun listen

Loved the story!! Would definitely recommend the book, especially for fans of the show as Tenant and Sheen’s narration really adds to the comedic situation.

Unexpectedly wonderful

I’ve loved Terry Pratchett novels for years but only recently heard of this and wasn’t quite sure. It’s marvellous— the storyline, the humour, the humanity and the performances. I will be listening again.
Edit: After listening to this I watched Good Omens on Prime and it is absolutely faithful to the book. Quite brilliant.

Nothing compared to the other adaptations

i was really, really excited about this, given how it features cast from the television show. However, it's full of production errors (repeating words, skipping/missing bits, etc) and poor performances (other-than Tennant). AVOID, unless you are a Good Omens completion, like I am.

Fantastic performance of a favourite story

I have loved Good Omens since I first read it many, many, years ago. The recent TV production was good but I missed certain parts of the story (such as the other four motorcyclists of the apocalypse) so to find a full cast audio production was a joyful moment indeed. David Tennant and Michael Sheen as the voices of Crowley and Aziraphale are every bit as wonderful as they were in the TV version and the rest of the cast are fabulous too.
Highly recommended!

Excellent recording of one of my favourite books

The book of Good Omens has been one of my faves since I first read it in the early 90s. The TV series is the best adaptation of a book I've ever seen. This recording is like as dream combination of the two - the book with all its delightfully understated quirkiness, beautifully narrated by Rebecca Front with David Tennant and Michael Sheen taking on Crowley and Aziraphale as they did in the series and supported by a full cast. It's bliss, because you get to hear these two actors who were so perfectly cast delivering lines that got sacrificed in the TV adaptation. The full version of the drunk scene at the bookshop alone is worthy of the purchase price.

Fantastic!

This audiobook is an excellent reading of a great tale written by two of the best authors I've ever read. Sheen and Tennant maintain the energies of the characters from the tv series adaptation. A truly entertaining read.

All time favourite

Excellent - while I adore (and own) most of Pratchett’s and Gaiman’s work, this remains my favourite. The all star cast made for a different style to the previous audiobook version I’d heard (narrated solely by Gaiman). Both equally enjoyable.

Awesome!

Of the hundreds of audiobooks I've listened to, including Nigel Planer reading early Pratchett, Stephen Briggs reading the later stuff, to the full cast graphic audio experience of James Axler's stuff, I can firmly state that this production of Good Omens is the best audiobook experience I've had. High quality production value with an excellent cast brought these characters even more to life than the two wordsmiths that created this fantastic work of fiction. Amazing work. If only all my favourite books were this well transferred to audio.
