Day 14: Favourite book of your favourite author

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Have I talked too much about Terry Pratchett? No? Okay, best keep going then. Good Omens, co-written between Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, is one of my all time favourite books; it is just so good. I really appreciate the relationship (okay, let’s just say it, bromance) between Aziraphale and Crowley, an angel and demon who have become too used to pretending to be human, and now have to contend with the world they have become used to coming to an end. There is a whole host of other characters, including a 14th century witch, that add further humour, as well as some pretty honest but funny observations. For example, the running joke that humans can create more terror and cruelty than heaven or hell could ever imagine rings true, while still holding the ability to make you laugh. Highly recommended.

On a sidenote, if they ever get round to making the film of this, can Michael Fassbender please play either Aziraphale or Crowley? Please?!
