Good Omens: Crowley, Aziraphale – or?

24 Festive Tasks: Door 23 – Hogswatch, Task 4:

In Terry Pratchett’s and Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens, who do you root more for: Aziraphale or Crowley?  Or another character?  (And in each case: why?)

Oooh — Aziraphale and Crowley.  It’s very simple:

  • The eternal teenager inside me roots for Crowley.  I don’t think I’ll ever outgrow tall, dark and handsome bad boys who aren’t really bad at heart.
  • The book lover inside me roots for Aziraphale.  I mean, how could any book lover not root for the owner of a bookstore?

And of course, however slick I may find this year’s screen adaptation, there is absolutely no question that David Tennant and Martin Sheen are Crowley and Aziraphale.

Then again, by way of decidedly more than a side note, I also root for Agnes — far and away the most kick-ass of all the book’s female characters.

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings – Performed by Andy Serkis

In another online community, we recently talked about the new Andy Serkis Lord of the Rings recordings.  Well, it turns out that the pull of The Ring is still mighty strong, for however much it may have been destroyed in Mount Doom. I had barely gotten my hands on these audios and I found I […]
