Last Donut Shop of the Apocalypse – Nina Post

★★★★★

Reading The Last Donut Shop of The Apocalypse (TLDSOTA), you may be tempted to ask yourself silly questions like “why would a gorgon run a donut shop“, but this would be a mistake; sort of like leaving your death worm tied up on his leash outside the north door (honestly the shrieking is unbearable). Entering the world of Kelly Driscoll means throwing logic and normalcy out the window, then closing the curtains, leaving the room, and ignoring their plaintive cries.

Even funnier and more loopy than The Last Condo Board, TLDSOTA is another bonkers tilt-a-whirl around Pothole city. Kelly is now the interim manager of Amenity Tower, but only until she can get the residents to accept GIL, a robot AI manager with zero interpersonal skills. Once again, the fallen angels that make up the condo board have cooked up an ill-conceived plan to set an Apocalypse in motion (when they’re not watching BBC America, of course), and Kelly needs to prevent it. Of course, she also has to tend to the feed and caring of the SPs (single-purpose angels) to whom she is now den-mother; as well as finding the president of the Cluck Snack company (who just so happens to share her surname). And because she doesn’t already have enough to do: a pair of warring donut shops run but two very different gorgon sisters.

Diving back into the world that Nina Post has so lovingly crafted is immensely fun. Once I picked up the book, I couldn’t put it down until it was finished, and then I was sad that it was over.
