Year Zero

Recently finished reading Year Zero by Rob Reid and mostly dug it.  Learned about the book via this headline on the All Songs Considered Blog:

Aliens Have Landed, Hoping To License All Of Humanity’s Music

Gets a little wacky and a little campy at times, but overall it’s a heck of a fun ride.  I especially liked the hidden musical tourette’s scattered throughout ala Timely Persuasion.  (Less frequent, but I’ll admit sometimes less forced…)  And the epilogue is just plain brilliant.

Check out the trailer below.
