A charming, funny story about the end of the world and the demon and angel who work together to prevent it. There are so many enjoyable things about this book. There's some inspired silliness, there is some philosophical perspective, there are a lot of quotable concepts (my husband and I often joke about "Best of Queen" and I can't hear the line in "Bohemian Rhapsody" about how "Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for meeeeeee..." without thinking of this book, just as one example).
I re-read this book every few years and have done since about 1993.
