Good Omens

By Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

Both of these authors write amusing, witty books, and their collaborative effort is wonderful. It’s a satirical twist on the movie Omens, with an angel and a demon (who “did not fall, so much as saunter vaguely downward”) trying to shape the supposed antichrist. Instead, he grows up uniquely human, and it changes the course of both sides in the immortal war. I enjoyed the book because of its paradoxical irreverence toward established religion, while at the same time respecting the core message of personal freedom and responsibility. It is hilarious, gets you out of the prison for a few hours, and can be reread ever so often for kicks!
