I went with Neil Gaiman and Terry Prachett’s cult classic, Good Omens, about the birth of the anti-christ and Armageddon. Like I said, light and easy!
The story about the war between heaven and hell and the end of the world has never been this funny! It is a “laugh out loud” story about the efforts exerted by angels, demons, witches, witchfinders, satanic nuns, horsepeople, seers, mediums and other strange people to help young Adam, the spawn of Satan, fulfil his destiny in bringing about Armageddon.
One of the funniest and most entertaining books I’ve ever read – a perfect book to start the new year.
