Good Omens by Neil Gaiman,Terry Pratchett Summary

____________________ COMING TO AMAZON PRIME ON 31ST MAY - STARRING DAVID TENNANT, MICHAEL SHEEN AND BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH 'Marvellously benign, ridiculously inventive and gloriously funny' Guardian ____________________ '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, Judgement Day is almost upon us and the world's going to end in a week . . . Now 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. But what if, for once, the predictions are right, and the apocalypse really is due to arrive next Saturday, just after tea? You could spend the time left drowning your sorrows, giving away all your possessions in preparation for the rapture, or laughing it off as (hopefully) just another hoax. Or you could just try to do something about it. It's a predicament that Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon now finds themselves in. They've been living amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and, truth be told, have grown rather fond of the lifestyle and, in all honesty, are not actually looking forward to the coming Apocalypse. And then there's the small matter that someone appears to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman,Terry Pratchett Summary

The classic collaboration from the internationally bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, soon to be an original series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant. “Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—Washington Post According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman,Terry Pratchett Summary

There is a distinct hint of Armageddon in the air. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witch-finders are getting ready to fight the good fight, armed with awkwardly antiquated instructions and stick pins. Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. . . . Right. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon -- each of whom has lived among Earth's mortals for many millennia and has grown rather fond of the lifestyle -- are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist (which is a shame, as he's a really nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. . . . First published in 1990, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back -- and just in time -- in a new hardcover edition (which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort) that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.

The Quite Nice and Fairly Accurate Good Omens Script Book by Neil Gaiman Summary

The Quite Nice and Fairly Accurate Good Omens Script Book contains much that is new and revelatory and even several scenes that are not actually in the final television series. 'One of the most hotly anticipated TV shows of the year' Independent 'Even if you're very familiar with the original novel, this is a different experience... so damned charming and quirky that it feels like a must' Starburst Neil Gaiman's glorious reinvention of the iconic bestseller Good Omens is adapted from the internationally beloved novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman and is soon to be a massive new TV launch on Amazon Prime Video and the BBC. The series is written and show-run by Neil himself and stars David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Jon Hamm and Miranda Richardson, to name but a few. **Includes an introduction by Neil Gaiman about bringing Good Omens to the screen** Before he died in 2015, Terry Pratchett asked Neil Gaiman to make a television series of the internationally beloved novel they wrote together about the end of the world. And so, Neil began to write. And continued to write until he had six episodes that brought an angel, Aziraphale, and a demon, Crowley, (the only things standing between us and the inevitable Armageddon) to life for the screen. Contained between the covers of this book are the scripts that Neil wrote, which later turned into some of the most extraordinary television ever made. Take a tour behind the scenes with a text that reveals the secrets of the show, still has the missing bits and, sometimes, asks for the impossible. Step backstage and see the magic for yourself. You may just learn as much from the scenes that never made the final cut as from those that did.

Good Omens: Belas maldições by Neil Gaiman,Terry Pratchett Summary

Nova edição revista e aprimorada de obra essencial de dois dos maiores autores britânicos de todos os tempos. Agora uma aclamada série produzida pela Amazon Prime Video. O mundo vai acabar em um sábado. No próximo sábado, para falar a verdade. Pouco antes da hora do jantar. Não há nada que possa ser feito para frustrar o Grande Plano divino. Mas quando uma freira satanista um tanto distraída estraga um esquema de troca de bebês e o pequeno Anticristo acaba sendo entregue ao casal errado, tem início uma série de erros cômicos que podem ameaçar o próprio Armagedom. Aziraphale é um anjo que atua na Inglaterra e dono de um sebo nas horas vagas. Crowley é um demônio e ex-serpente responsável pela mesma região. Ambos veem nessa confusão uma grande oportunidade, porque os dois, que vivem entre os humanos desde o Princípio, apegaram-se demais ao mundo para desejar a grande batalha entre o Céu e o Inferno. Em sua jornada para evitar o Armagedom e encontrar o Anticristo, agora um menino de 11 anos vivendo tranquilamente em uma cidadezinha inglesa, eles acabarão trombando com uma jovem ocultista, dona do único livro que prevê com precisão os acontecimentos do fim do mundo, com caçadores de bruxas ainda na ativa e, quem sabe, até com os Quatro Cavaleiros do Apocalipse. Mas eles terão de ser rápidos. Não é só o tempo que está acabando... Esta edição contém a tradução revisada a partir do original revisto, aprovado por Neil Gaiman e pelo Pratchett Estate, que corrige vários erros de digitação e imprecisões presentes em edições anteriores.

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman,Terry Pratchett Summary

Presi separatamente Terry Pratchett e Neil Gaiman sono due semidivinità letterarie. Ma basta metterli insieme perché scoppi l'inferno! Sulla base delle profezie di Agnes Nutter, Strega, messe per iscritto nel 1655, il mondo finirà sabato prossimo. È per questo motivo che le temibili armate del Bene e del Male si stanno ammassando, che i Quattro Motociclisti dell'Apocalisse stanno scaldando i loro poderosissimi motori e sono pronti a lanciarsi per strada, e che gli ultimi due scopritori di streghe si preparano a combattere la battaglia finale. Tutto sembra proprio andare secondo il Piano Divino. Non fosse che un angelo un filo pignolo (ma giusto un filo, per carità) e un demone che apprezza la bella vita non fanno esattamente salti di gioia davanti alla prospettiva dell'incombente catastrofe cosmica... Buona Apocalisse a tutti! è una favola surreale e dark, eccessiva e divertentissima, che ricorda molto il miglior Douglas Adams e i Monty Python al culmine della loro follia creativa, e le cui lodi saranno cantate sino alla Fine dei Tempi da tutti: devoti e dannati.

Race the Sands by Sarah Beth Durst Summary

"National Velvet with monsters and a big helping of palace intrigue, Race the Sands is monstrous (literally), heartwarming, and empowering in equal measure. An incredibly fun and inspiring read." - Katherine Arden, New York Times bestselling author of The Bear and the Nightingale In this epic standalone fantasy, the acclaimed author of the Queens of Renthia series introduces an imaginative new world in which a pair of strong and determined women risk their lives battling injustice, corruption, and deadly enemies in their quest to become monster racing champions. Life, death, and rebirth--in Becar, who you are in this life will determine your next life. Yet there is hope--you can change your destiny with the choices you make. But for the darkest individuals, there is no redemption: you come back as a kehok, a monster, and are doomed to be a kehok for the rest of time. Unless you can win the Races. After a celebrated career as an elite kehok rider, Tamra became a professional trainer. Then a tragic accident shattered her confidence, damaged her reputation, and left her nearly broke. Now, she needs the prize money to prevent the local temple from taking her daughter away from her, and that means she must once again find a winning kehok . . . and a rider willing to trust her. Raia is desperate to get away from her domineering family and cruel fiancé. As a kehok rider, she could earn enough to buy her freedom. But she needs a first-rate trainer. Impressed by the inexperienced young woman's determination, Tamra hires Raia and pairs her with a strange new kehok with the potential to win--if he can be tamed. But in this sport, if you forget you're riding on the back of a monster, you die. Tamra and Raia will work harder than they ever thought possible to win the deadly Becaran Races--and in the process, discover what makes this particular kehok so special.

The Cedar Tree by Nicole Alexander Summary

In the spring of 1949, Stella O’Riain flees her home – a sheep property on the barren edge of the Strzelecki Desert. She leaves behind the graves of her husband Joe and her baby daughter. With no money and limited options, Stella accepts her brother-in-law Harry’s offer to live at the O’Riain cane farm in the Richmond Valley. There she hopes to get answers to the questions that plague her about her marriage. However Harry refuses to discuss Joe or the family’s secrets, even forbidding her to speak to the owner of the neighbouring property. Nearly a century earlier in County Tipperary, Irish cousins Brandon and Sean O’Riain also fled their homes – as wanted criminals. By 1867, they are working as cedar-cutters in New South Wales’s lush green Richmond Valley. But while Brandon embraces the opportunities this new country offers, Sean refuses to let go of the past. And one cousin is about to make a dangerous choice that will have devastating consequences down the generations . . .
