Holy Crap! the World Is Ending!: How a Trip to the Bookstore Led to Sex with an Alien and the Destruction of Earth

Autumn wasn’t expecting to be infatuated with some random guy at the bookstore. She also wasn’t expecting him to be an alien and their relationship to be forbidden. And that’s not the only surprise looming. There’s also an alien prophecy, a doomsday countdown, chaos in the streets, and a slim chance to save humanity from destruction…

Holy Crap! The World Is Ending! is a tale of two books. One is an incredibly wacky romp that involves the true history of Earth, WalMarts that guard alien secrets, and pig-out sessions so ambitious that the nonsensical word “madsnackage-athon” is the only way to describe them. The other book confronts the protagonist with threats of rape and murder or alien artifacts that cause agony with a single touch.

The fact that this book tries to ricochet between wacky and darkly serious makes for a strange, disjointed, and off-putting reading experience. It’s hard to go back to enjoying jolly weirdness when something heinous just occurred for the sake of narrative tension or high stakes.

There is a lot to recommend about this book, but its inconsistent tone undermines a great deal of the creativity and fun plotting of alternate history.
