Hiya Everyone! I hope you had a saucy weekend and are ready for a fantastic week. I wanted to start something a little new. During the pandemic I have been doing a ton of reading. Now, I have been reading a plethora of different things from fiction to self help to biographies. I want to start sharing what I’ve been reading and ask with lots of love for recommendations for the future.
So the first book I wanna tell you all about, Good Omens. Here is an overview from Amazon:
“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 . . .”
I want to start off my review with saying I thought the book was really good. It was funny, had an awesome plot, and had very in depth characters. To start out with, the plot is a well tried idea with a new twist. It is the apocalypse but not everyone is on board even with the Antichrist in play. What makes the plot even better is the fact that an angel and a demon are BFF’s.
There are two things that I will say made this book a little hard to read. One, it was very long. As a reader with limited reading time it can be a little intimidating. The second thing is that there are some dry spots of the book. The stories are good and clever but its a little long which means there are some dry spots.
That being said all I would give this book 4.6 stars out of 5 and would recommend everyone takes time out of their day to read!
