    "Brilliant!"

    Neil Gaiman's obviously had a lot of fun writing this small piece, and that fun is contagious. Helped by Christina Pickles's priceless delivery, that story of an old lady picking up the Holy Grail for a few pence at Oxfam packs tons of humour and emotion in 27 short minutes. Being more of a "laughing inside" audience, I found myself chuckling like an idiot with my earphones on. Highly recommended.

    "Delightful short story"

    I've listened to this story numerous times. It is funny, sweet and quirky all at once. I enjoy the juxtaposition of the mundane and fanciful. I also enjoy Ms Pickles smooth voice and phrasing.

    Story
    "It's all a matter of perspective."

    Good Omens was my second Neil Gaiman book (Don't Panic was first). This story seems to have a bit of Terry Pratchett hovering in the background, and that makes me smile.
