She's the interim manager of Amenity Tower, one of the few buildings still left standing in the rubble of Pothole City. But after answering a mysterious phone…. Kelly Driscoll tracks down monsters for a living, but the job isn't what it used to be. Vampire hunters are the new big thing, but Kelly doesn't swing that way.
When a reclusive client hires her to locate a rival angel, Kelly's search takes her to a downtown…. Extra Credit Epidemic by Nina Post. Taffy Snackerge is a high school senior who likes doing things her way. Gifted in science, she'd rather analyze infectious diseases and pick up a girl for the occasional fling than deal with her boring schoolwork or the high school social scene. Where it took awhile for me to really understand the mechanics of this urban fantasy universe in the first book, t Full Review at Foil the Plot Remember that time I read the strangest book ever?
Where it took awhile for me to really understand the mechanics of this urban fantasy universe in the first book, the second is much more straight forward in regards to plot and premise. And I was pleased to find that what I most appreciated in The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse its weirdness, humour and styleis still very much present here, making for an even more memorable reading experience.
Picking up right where The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse left off, we find out just how Kelly, Af and the rest of our favourite SP's are faring after the saving and subsequent destruction of Pothole City. Af, hunky as he is, is as clueless as ever when it comes to relationships and girls, more specifically, Kelly.
Raum and his sub-committee are still on their pesky mission to bring about the destruction of Pothole City, culminating in an inexorable escape. And though many zany things happen throughout the course of the story, the central crisis is all about Kelly.
Thrust into a new job, she struggles to adapt as everything around her changes. She feels lost, inadequate, without purpose and I think most of us can certainly relate.

And on top of that, she's now called on a mission to find potential family member and missing president of the Cluck Snack brand. You know, it's all in a day's work. One of the things I was most looking forward to was watching the relationship between Af and Kelly unfold. After all the sparks between them in the first book, Post doesn't disappoint here. I loved the tension that precedes a new relationship but proceeds the initial sparks, it felt very real. And then there's the characters. We get to know so many more of the SP's and they are each unique and quirky and loveable.
There's also Stringfellow, the human-turned-ferret. He's sarcastic, funny and too adorable and undoubtedly, my favourite character in the entire book. There's no shortage of wit and humour in The Last Donut Shop of the Apocalypse which is what makes Post's work stand out. Her unusual descriptions for everyday things is exceptionally amazing and had me giggling on a number of occasions.
For example, "The hoarse voice on the other end sounded like a all-mounted manual pencil sharpener. While ridiculous politics and absurd social commentary are still there, it's easier to decipher this time around. It may have taken some time for the first book to settle in a positive way, I didn't have that problem here.
The characters are charming, the storyline is easy and fun and the revelations are poignant as ever. In short, it's a win-win all around! I found it charming and humorous, and felt it stood on its own two feet well enough without a continuation of its story. Despite my concerns, Last Donut Shop recaptured the spirit of its predecessor and surpassed it in quality and entertainment, claiming the top spot in my personal hiera The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse is a book I didn't want to see a sequel to. Despite my concerns, Last Donut Shop recaptured the spirit of its predecessor and surpassed it in quality and entertainment, claiming the top spot in my personal hierarchy of Nina Post prose.
She's serving as the interim manager of Amenity Tower taking over for the beloved Roger Balbi , and, yet again, is called upon to solve everyone else's problems.
This time Kelly finds herself traveling between Amenity Tower, several different Hell Lodges, a Ferris Wheel restaurant, and two rival donut shops operated by a pair of gorgon sisters in order to solve two different housing problems, find the disappeared president of Clucking Along Holdings, and save the Single Purposes angels also: death worms.
Post's humor is a constant throughout her work. Last Donut Shop , though, has the best blend of her wit, her well-crafted prose, and her inventive imagination. The book is absolutely a pleasure to read, and has some of her best characters in the gorgon sisters Medusa and Stheno if you're having a hard time pronouncing that second one, try pronouncing it the way they would in Attic Greek. Fans of Af and Kelly will not be disappointed, and there's also some interesting issues related to identity in this one a recurring theme with disguises, false identities, beings in altered states and forms There's a lot to digest, but it reads as quickly as any of Post's other work.
While it's true I am and look to remain a Nina Post fan, I really believe this is Post at her best and brightest. The only thing that would cause me to hesitate in recommending it to a new reader is that it's a sequel That's always problematic. And while I don't know what it's like to read Last Donut Shop without having first read Last Condo Board an unfortunate artefact of the linear nature of existence , I have a feeling that Last Donut Shop can be read profitably without reading its prequel—it's just too much fun. Of course, you can always pick up Last Condo Board and read it first.
Really, if you're a fan of offbeat humor, you can't go wrong with Nina Post. Disclaimer: This is where I usually warn you that I received a free copy of a book in exchange for a review. Well, I didn't, even though I could have, I think you should know that I bought the book anyway. And I venture down Nina Post's zany path again! It's about time I get back on my game, so I chugged down both books, and here we are.
When we last left Kelly Driscoll, she had just prevented the apocalypse Disclaimer: This is where I usually warn you that I received a free copy of a book in exchange for a review. When we last left Kelly Driscoll, she had just prevented the apocalypse. You'd think she would deserve a break after that one, but now she's the interim manager of Amenity Tower where all of the angels were housed who caused the problems in the first place and she's on a new mission to locate the missing president of the Cluck Snack Brand.
Oh, and there's another plot to trigger the apocalypse. I was happy to see Stringfellow return, and as a ferret. It always excites me to see ferrets in books, especially hard-working, self-supporting ferrets as I wish my ferrets would stumble upon my kindle one day while I'm away and get some ideas. Although, I regress. This book also brings developments in the relationship between Kelly and Af, with both of their busy schedules, restrictions, and quirky personalities, which way will things go? Well, you certainly won't believe some of it, especially the "mysterious, recklessly handsome man" Kelly meets at the Donut Shop.
Who has time for relationships anyway, there's still an Apocalypse to prevent, some strange donuts being distributed in the city and what's up with the Gorgon sisters? As always, I love Nina's style.
Sci Fi & Fantasy
But somewhere, there was a mail drop in Mongolia stuffed with memories she wasn't willing to deal with. And, it has a flair of insanity that you can't help but believe because Nina manages to portray with a straight-face at least as much of a face as you can see through the pages matter-of-fact tone.
My verdict: I think you can guess. Apr 24, PJ Lea rated it really liked it Shelves: humorous.
The Last Donut Shop of the Apocalypse - Nina Post - Google книги
Donuts, who doesn't like donuts? Some flavours might be an acquired taste and much the same could be said for this author's writing and sense of humour. With that said I loved this book, Kelly is so convinced that she will never live up to the previous manager that she doesn't see what is happening to keep her there.
The goings-on in the donut shop are insane and very funny.
Search for Clues
It's a look at any condo building anywhere, just with otherworldly creatures involved. This is my first taste of Nina Post and all I can say is can I please have some more? This is the second book of a series, of which I had not read. After reading this zany little adventure, I will definitely be going more for another helping. The cover to this book is a technicolour beauty. If you can fit another colour in, I would be surprised. A real eye-catcher and I wish I would see it in paper for the full effect.
Sometimes ebooks just miss out. There is not much I can say about this book wit This is my first taste of Nina Post and all I can say is can I please have some more? There is not much I can say about this book without giving away plot. Suffice to say that each and every page has craziness written all over it.
The amazing thing is that Nina Post makes it believable. There is a straight-forward style about her that just adds so much to the book. This will have you cackling to yourself very quickly.
