The book is a comedy about the birth of the son of Satan and the coming of the End Times. There are attempts by the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley to sabotage the coming of the end times, having grown accustomed to their comfortable surroundings in England. One subplot features a mixup at the small country hospital on the day of birth and the growth of the Antichrist, Adam, who grows up with the wrong family, in the wrong country village. Another subplot concerns the summoning of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, each a big personality in their own right. It is the coming of the End Times : the Apocalypse is near, and Final Judgement will soon descend upon the human species. This comes as a bit of bad news to the angel Aziraphale who was the guardian of the Eastern Gate of Eden and the demon Crowley who, when he was originally named Crawly, was the serpent who tempted Eve to eat the apple, respectively the representatives of Heaven and Hell on Earth, as they have become used to living their cosy, comfortable lives and have, in a perverse way, taken a liking to humanity. As such, since they are good friends despite ostensibly representing the polar opposites of Good and Evil, they decide to work together and keep an eye on the Antichrist, destined to be the son of a prominent American diplomat stationed in Britain, and thus ensure he grows up in a way that means he can never decide between Good and Evil, thereby postponing the end of the world. In fact, Warlock, the child who everyone thinks is the Anti-Christ, is a normal eleven-year-old boy.
What do angels eat? And can food be a good reason for having a body, rather than being spirituals entities dancing on the head of a pin? This delightful mini-series features Michael Sheen in the role of the angel Aziraphale and David Tennant playing the demon Crawley. He is the one who tempted Eve with an apple, although apparently he does not really care much about food and eating, except as means to get his way cars and technology are his thing. He also has a penchant for Bordeaux wine, which he collects and which Crawley uses to get him solemnly drunk. He is a quintessential and exaggerated foodie, ready to cross vast bodies of water to taste what he fancies when he gets peckish. Crawley, in his devious ways, knows that a good meal is the way to get his angelic friend to listen to him, so he shamelessly uses invitations to the best tables of London to convince him to collaborate. However, Famine is not about lack of food or starvation: it is all about the distortions in our contemporary food system and in our eating habits. But besides this not-so-imaginative jab at modernist cuisine, it is around fast food that Famine gets really diabolical. Chow us an edible substance and must not be confused with food. Eating Chow can help you lose weight, hair and kidney functions. May cause anal leakage.
