Finally, I’ve read something new again! I’ve been taking a break to fill out grad school applications, but luckily I’m almost finished with that.
Anyway!….. I just read Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens. It was really funny actually; there were a lot of moments when I was laughing out loud. I also really enjoyed that the conclusion they came to was that maybe nothing can be controlled and that even when you think you are trying to control your fate, there’s a good chance that it was supposed to happen that way anyway. Very interesting! I liked it a lot especially because I believe in predetermined fate so that was a nice agreement with what I believed in.
I like how Gaiman always plays with the unreal, but he does it in such an amazing way that it doesn’t seem fake at all. I feel like I’m just reading a story that could potentially happen and it’s really such a skill that I admire. I can’t even really think of much that I didn’t like about this book. There were some parts that dragged a bit, but overall I really liked the characters and the plot a lot.
