Good Omens (Pratchett and Gaiman)
Quick synopsis: Satan's child is born into the world and inserted into the wrong family. What results is the ultimate experiment in nature vs nurture. When the end times come, will the son of the devil follow the evil in his genetics, or the standard well rounded human upbringing his mistaken life gave him.
In the book are devils, angels, witches, witch hunters, politicians, four horsemen of the apocalypse, nuns, satanists, paint ballers, soothsayers, aliens, etc.
Laugh out loud funny, but because of the varied styles in the dual authors, may not be easy for all readers to get into. Give it fifty pages before you decide though, would hate if you gave up too early, it would be a damn shame.
People who wrote more in depth and are worth reading:
Bonnie over at Blogcritic has a great POV.
"Good Omens uses the pre-Apocalyptic circumstances to explore the idea of what it means to be good, evil and, most of all, human." Review Link...
"a proof of how versatile and flexible both authors can be. The two just fed off into each others abilities that the synergy between them had produced a novel of this high caliber" Review Link...
Side note - Perfumes based around the Good Omens Characters and places.
