Bad Religion

I liked American Gods, I liked Anansi Boys so I was eager to read Good Omens.  I liked Crowley, I liked the first half of the book but inevitably it's sensibilities (and supreme Pratchett Englishness) overpowered the narrative and I stopped caring.  I don't know if it suffers from having two very distinct voices and there were some seriously good moments especially with the Four Other Horsemen but I wouldn't look forward to reading it again in the same way I'd look forward to checking in with Shadow.
