Description

Armageddon only happens once, you know. They don’t let you go around again until you get it right.”

According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch – the world’s only totally reliable guide to the future, written in 1655, before she exploded – the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea…

People have been predicting the end of the world almost from its very beginning, so it’s only natural to be sceptical when a new date is set for Judgement Day. This time though, the armies of Good and Evil really do appear to be massing. The four Bikers of the Apocalypse are hitting the road. But both the angels and demons – well, one fast-living demon and a somewhat fussy angel – would quite like the Rapture not to happen.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist…

    From THX1198
    Very funny. It moves at a great pace too. It makes me wonder why they haven’t written a sequel.
  • Pratchett at his Best !!

    This was the first Terry Pratchett book I read. A delightful read, and like all his books, thought provoking and hilarious at the same time. The end of the world has never been presented quite this way before. Pratchett's gentle humour and insight into human nature makes this book one of my all time favourites.
  • Amazing!!!
