In Armageddon Two-step, Shelby saved the world and was given a bunch of money to keep quietly vague about it. Though, of course, he was the most famous man in the world…which was a big step-up from his last gig flipping burgers at Mickey-Ds. But in modern society, fame is fleeting and Shelby is feeling lonely. What does the world’s savior do for an encore?
I was hoping for more magical realism and less philosophy in Armageddon Two-step. In a world where entire families are rich and famous for being rich and famous, I don’t think the plot was absurd enough. However, literary fiction readers may like it. 3 stars.
Thanks to Redbat Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
