Works of literature worth frothing over (or avoiding like the pox).

It reads as very Pratchett, I've never got much of a Gaiman feel from it.

The maggots in the call centre is him, apparently. The whole "gods/angels/supernatural entities living among us" theme is also very Gaiman. I think most of the actual words are Pratchett's though.

This was a very funny book, I found myself laughing out loud many times throughout the story. It is a very easy read with loads of inside pop culture jokes and a reasonably good story to hold the jokes together.
I found my self wondering who would play the various parts in this book if it was ever to be made into a movie. I really do believe it would play very well on the big screen.
I have book number 2 ready to start tonight and I am looking forward to the further adventures of Isambard Smith a Space Captain of the British Empire.
just got book 4 - first 3 are fucking great
