Review: HOLY CRAP! THE WORLD IS ENDING! by Anna-Marie Abell

End times are here! Now you can eat whatever you want and not care if you gain weight.

The president has announced that Earth is going to collide with a rogue moon, and in the process, our entire planet is going to be smashed to bits. As one would expect, upon hearing this news, humans went ballistic. It was as if every sports team in the world lost their championship game at the same time. No car was left unrolled—but oddly enough, Taco Bell remained open and made unfathomable profits in the last days. Apparently, Doritos Locos® Tacos were a popular last meal.

Autumn (who for the purpose of this retelling asked to be portrayed as drool-inducing hot with kick-ass ninja skills) has just been handed the task of saving all of humanity. With the help of her unbelievably sexy alien boyfriend and her kleptomaniac friend with fire-retardant hair, Autumn races to save her fellow humans by using the Ark of the Covenant. Along the way, she discovers how sheltered people are from the truth of extraterrestrials and their power to either protect us or destroy us.

Stupid government.

Grab a bottle of wine, a shipload of snacks, and prepare to take a ride on this humorous chick lit romantic sci-fi paranormal adventure. If you’re into Ancient Aliens, conspiracy theories, UFOs, crave a little sexy time in your reading, are curious if we were genetically engineered (like the Sumerian cuneiform texts claim), and are dying to find out the meaning of life, then this book is for you.


REVIEW


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Holy Crap is right! Imagine meeting the man of your dreams... only to find out he's an alien... so while you're terrified of all that entails, you can't resist the pull he has over you... you both realize you're soulmates... but your death is imminent because his planet is about to collide with yours and Earth as you know it will be over... however, there's a bit of hope... if mankind can come together in peace, love and harmony, then they can be beamed to a planet similar to Earth to continue life. Easy peasy right?

I especially enjoyed the way the author wove what many of us have learned from the Bible, the history of our people, the Big Bang, and her own special brand of hilarity to give another perspective on how we as a people came to be. She used her imagination to give the reader a familiar yet refreshing view of the creation of life on Earth. It was thoroughly entertaining, full of laughs, and I for one hope that there is more to the ending than what I got. Please say it ain't so. I'm still dealing with this bittersweet feeling and I hope that this wasn't the true end for Autumn and extremely sexy alien!
