Book Review: Good Omens

Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, WitchGood Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I know, I know, it’s blasphemy to not give this book five stars. Believe me, I feel guilty only giving it three stars. Not because I feel like it deserves more but because I know I should’ve liked it more. I mean the writing was fantastic and the main characters should’ve been interesting enough. I don’t know, maybe I just need to sleep on it, but sometimes when I was reading it–it felt like the writing was focused more on coming up with a clever punchline than advancing the plot.

Don’t get me wrong it was hilarious. I had a couple belly laughs while reading it, but they weren’t enough to make me invest in the book. While I read it I had two opinions: “Oh that’s cool” or “oh that’s funny.” I didn’t have any other feelings while reading it. So, yes, I had to give it three stars. I feel badly about it; to those I offend with my mid-level rating please forgive me.
