Staff Reviews

A comet is coming to end the world and only Junior knows about it. Told in Vonnegut-like short chapters and bursting with dark humor, Currie tells the story in such a unique way (in the first half, the chapters count up to 100, and in the second half they count back down) as the world begins and ends. The book is a chain letter; once you finish, you hand it to someone else.

“What would you do if you knew the hour and the day that earth was to be destroyed by a meteor? This is the struggle of Junior Thibodeaux. As he races against time to save everything he loves, the reader will be transfixed and, ultimately, transformed by this big-hearted, brilliant novel.”
— christopher bowe, Longfellow Books, Portland, ME


Unabridged CDs • 12 hours, 10 CDs

In infancy, Junior Thibodeaux is encoded with a prophesy: a comet will obliterate life on Earth in thirty-six years. Alone in this knowledge, he comes of age in rural Maine grappling with the question: Does anything I do matter?
