Good Omens

by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman Year Published: Average
A comical depiction of the end of the world where forces of good and evil collide and realize they are not too different from one another. A number of humans and/or deities act to prevent or encourage the apocalypse except for the antichrist who seems to have been misplaced. I was originally drawn to this novel by Pratchett and Gaiman’s quirky humor, and it is still worth a second read as it philosophizes over the roles of good and evil while making numerous biblical references and allusions. It is a very appropriate read for those enrolled in the AP Literature course. (Recommended by Matt Chin)
