by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
I have to say I am a big fan of Terry Pratchett. This book is a collaboration with Neil Gaiman who is also very witty and fun. The apocalypse is coming, according to the beliefs of angels and demons. All part of The Great Plan they say. But these celestial characters have flaws just as humans do and when the antichrist is swapped with another newborn it is the wrong one. So the antichrist is lost for eleven years and matures as a regular boy. The angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley have become friends over the millennia and would rather not lose their friendship and humankind just yet. The story evolves as a farce with witches and unemployed witch-hunters and small English community characters. I laughed out loud several times. And the ending made me think, does any being really know God’s Great Plan?
