The book is such a fun read about the birth of the son of Satan and the coming of the End Times.
The angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley who were to look after the earth and when the time comes they are to make sure the ‘end of world’ happens perfectly.
But they have become alittle too accustomed to their comfortable surroundings in England and also kind of developed a liking for the humankind.
And when the time comes, they unknowingly mess up on the day of birth of ‘Antichrist’, who is now growing up with the wrong family, in the wrong village. So when the day comes and so do the ‘Four Horsemen of the apocalypse’ its all a huge mess and our angel and demon want to sabotage the D-DAY.
Filled with fun characters, that have enough space to breathe,the friendship between ‘the them’ and the angel and demon is to die for, & filled with mystical characters perfectly blended with the 90s nostalgia, this is a treat.
