Publisher's Summary

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.

This book will make you think.

Would you listen to Just a Couple of Days again? Why?

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.

MILITARY MEDICAL MAYHEM VS METAPHYSICAL MISCHIEF

As always, the military attempts to destroy everything, and everyone in it, just to see if it can be done. Fortunately, there are a few sentient beings left on Earth with enough technical savvy and spiritual savoir-faire to see, understand and transcend sociopathic psychosis. Tony Vigorito is a masterful metaphysical muse. And, he's a gods-be-damned magician with a words!
I look forward to savoring this book, and the rest of his writing, again and again...until I am certain that I know what he knows.

WHAT???

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.

Regret buying th book

What did you like best about Just a Couple of Days? What did you like least?

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.
