Good Omens

and the wisdom and wit of Terry Pratchett.

I really enjoyed the Radio 4 dramatisation of Good Omens.  I re-read it every year, during the summer. I haven't done that (for obvious reasons) for two years. It was nice to be reminded why I like Pratchett's work, especially Good Omens.

 One quote sums it all up for me
"Anyway, if you stop tellin' people it's all sorted out after they're dead, they might try sorting it all out while they're alive." (Adam Young - on not blowing up the world and starting again)

 The script was a very good adaption. It brought the story into the 21st century with good use of 'old technology (landlines).

Plus, I really like The Hell Hound Dog.
