    "The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist. Put New York Times bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett together . . . and all Hell breaks loose."

    "This book is a very quick read despite a somewhat slow start. It is a collection of stories organized like a memoir or an autobiography where each chapter is a small anecdote from a time in the author's life. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy wit and dry humor. "

    "After watching the movie once again, I decided to read the book, so I ordered "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" on Amazon. What to say: the book is fantastic! It made me laugh as much as the movie, and I've been able to play another movie in my mind while reading it! I suggest it to all the lovers of the comedy genre."

    ""David Sedaris's ability to transform the mortification of everyday life into wildly entertaining art," (The Christian Science Monitor) is elevated to wilder and more entertaining heights than ever in this remarkable new book. Trying to make coffee when the water is shut off, David considers using the water in a vase of flowers and his chain of associations takes him from the French countryside to a hilariously uncomfortable memory of buying drugs in a mobile home in rural North Carolina. In essay after essay, Sedaris proceeds from bizarre conundrums of daily life-having a lozenge fall from your mouth into the lap of a fellow passenger on a plane or armoring the windows with LP covers to protect the house from neurotic songbirds-to the most deeply resonant human truths. Culminating in a brilliant account of his venture to Tokyo in order to quit smoking, David Sedaris's sixth essay collection is a new masterpiece of comic writing from "a writer worth treasuring""

    "I bought this book for David Sedaris to sign. Get this in conjunction with the audio book. There is nothing better than hearing him read these stories. We laugh our butts off listening to him. One time, we had to pull over because we were scared of getting into an accident. I would go into more detail, but it's better to listen or read for yourself. He's absolutely incredible."
