Gaiman and Pratchett have never disappointed me. This one, recommended by a friend, beat my already-high expectations. It was great for some light reading that still inspired some pleasant turns of mind. After finishing it, I felt a strange sense of empty completion; a good feeling!

The darkness of Neil Gaiman and the Great comic writing of Terry Pratchett. Who could have ever asked for a better combination. i found this book hilarious from start to finish and I've read it about 50 times. Anyone who hasn't read it yet or are "struggling" to get through it, go back to Harry Potter books. Apparently this is just way to advanced for you. Seriously, what is funnier than a demon and angel being best friends, getting drunk and then simply sobering up again on a whim. Still laughing now.
