Cult favorite, Tony Vigorito's award-winning underground hit is a chronicle of the party at the end of time. A game of graffiti tag on a local overpass is kicked off by a mischievous artist who writes a simple phrase: "Uh-oh." An anonymous interlocutor responds with "When?" A sly answer appears: "Just a couple of days." But what happens in just a couple of days? Professor Blip Korterly is arrested, his friend Dr. Flake Fountain is drafted into a shadow-government research project to develop the ultimate biological weapon, and an accidental outbreak turns into a merry-hearted, babble-inducing apocalypse that will either destroy humankind or take it to the next step in evolution.

I would absolutely listen again since the plot of this book is not the only point...the story is very interesting and captivating, but it does such a great job of making the reader think that multiple listens would provide totally unique experiences.
The narrator really made the book for me. He did a great job, especially considering the multiple paths that the story went in.
He really gave the characters depth, great narration.
My preference for a good story is something totally unusual and not run of the mill stuff. Give me something I haven't heard before.
I don't know what that was but I think it was a mixing bowl of slag! Maybe a mixture of other books he thought of writing, left over pages and fragments of story wannabes? Not sure but I found myself hating it. It didn't seem to have a purpose for existing as a story.
I listened to the preview and read the reviews. I was pleased with the way the author used language. However, the story meanders all over the place and it is more like a comic book story in prose without the superheroes. I stopped listening about half way through.
