NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Low-level entertainment lawyer Nick Carter thinks it’s a prank, not an alien encounter, when a redheaded mullah and a curvaceous nun show up at his office. But Frampton and Carly are highly advanced (if bumbling) extraterrestrials. The entire cosmos, they tell him, has been hopelessly hooked on American pop songs ever since “Year Zero” (1977 to us), resulting in the biggest copyright violation since the Big Bang and bankrupting the whole universe. Nick has just been tapped to clean up this mess before things get ugly. Thankfully, this unlikely galaxy-hopping hero does know a thing or two about copyright law. Now, with Carly and Frampton as his guides, Nick has forty-eight hours to save humanity—while hoping to wow the hot girl who lives down the hall from him.

Oh, this tries so desperately to be another Hitchhiker’s Guide. You can tell from the snark and the forced jokes and the crazy nonsensical dialogue that pours out of the first couple of chapters.
And that’s the problem. It tries so hard to be something it’s not. What might have been a mildly amusing plot is simply overwrought with bad decisions. I found it unfunny and tepid.
Year Zero is, if you'll pardon the expression, a hoot 'n' a half. So much pop culture, so much science fiction, and all of it very well put together. I loved every moment!
Year Zero is a fabulous sci-fi adventure. It's been a while since I've read a book as fun as this. Definitely worth the money.
