The End Is Now

A book by Rob Stennett

< read all 1 reviews

Snark, Quirk and Bizarre

This is a quirky read. Part morality tale cast with a bunch of crazy slapstick characters, mixed with some Biblical truth, a little Biblical fiction, and a whole lot of paranoia froth into a book that is quickly read but is not going to appeal to all.

Rob Stennett charmingly breaks a biggie fiction rule with amusing results. Conferences, books, lectures have focused on tight story crafting that cuts backstory into tiny, palatable pieces. Stennett serves up backstory in a smorgasbord of offerings from character motivation and past experiences, to random thoughts and bizarre beliefs. 

If you can't do a fiction menu that varies and does not offer just meat and potatoes, you'll probably not enjoy this novel. But, if you go for quirk, snark and variety and the subject interests you, give it a shot.
