Overview

Presi separatamente Terry Pratchett e Neil Gaiman sono due semidivinità letterarie. Ma basta metterli insieme perché scoppi l'inferno! Sulla base delle profezie di Agnes Nutter, Strega, messe per iscritto nel 1655, il mondo finirà sabato prossimo. È per questo motivo che le temibili armate del Bene e del Male si stanno ammassando, che i Quattro Motociclisti dell'Apocalisse stanno scaldando i loro poderosissimi motori e sono pronti a lanciarsi per strada, e che gli ultimi due scopritori di streghe si preparano a combattere la battaglia finale. Tutto sembra proprio andare secondo il Piano Divino. Non fosse che un angelo un filo pignolo (ma giusto un filo, per carità) e un demone che apprezza la bella vita non fanno esattamente salti di gioia davanti alla prospettiva dell'incombente catastrofe cosmica¿
Buona Apocalisse a tutti! è una favola surreale e dark, eccessiva e divertentissima, che ricorda molto il miglior Douglas Adams e i Monty Python al culmine della loro follia creativa, e le cui lodi saranno cantate sino alla Fine dei Tempi da tutti: devoti e dannati.

Neil Gaiman is the acclaimed creator of the graphic novel series SANDMAN and of such novels for children as Coraline and for adults as American Gods. His comics and novels have sold in their tens of millions. Like Terry, his works have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and also like Terry, he is the winner of multipleprizes, including the Carnegie Medal. Unlike Terry, he has never been awarded a knighthood for services to literature, although his mother thinks that sooner or later the Queen will read one of his books and immediately knight him if she likes it, and that to be on the safe side he should leave out the rude words. He does have the Newbery Medal, though.
