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 . . .

SummaryAdd a Summary
An angel and a demon try to stop the apocalypse since they enjoy life on earth too much to destroy it in a war.
This book is a fantastic read for those who enjoy British humor with a side of the occult. Both fans of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett will find something to love about the story.
