This longstanding favorite collaboration between two clever and inventive writers tells the story of an Apocalypse thrown off-kilter when the Antichrist is switched at birth. There are dozens of comic asides in footnotes, an incredibly rich ensemble (including a demon who threatens his houseplants into growing instead of watering them), and a deeply moving meditation on destiny from an eleven year-old boy. Yet somehow, in the face of all the supernatural messes, the ordinary humans become the heroes. Good Omens is not only going to make you laugh until you cry, but also provoke some of the most interesting questions about faith and reality you've ever considered.
