I didn't really like Good Omen. It was ok at best.

Great start. Very BLAH middle. Good enough finish.

Yeah I really loved the beginning.

Yup. I have read a lot of Gaiman, so the start had me hyped up. And then I literally cannot recall half of what happens in the middle chapters because it is all so overly elaborately written despite so little actually happening. The kids are just not interesting at all, and the horseman parts are mildly entertaining. Very on the nose with the horseman.

Things pick up at the end, but I had to force myself to finish... whereas with most Gaiman books, I have to force myself to pause for the night and get some sleep.
