Escaping Infinity by Richard Paolinelli
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I picked this one up a while back, but only decided to move it up in the queue when it hit the Dragon Award Nominees for 2017. Wow, am I glad I did. What an an amazing ride!

Even if you don’t make the sale, trust me, it’s worth the price.
For those of you who don’t want to read a whole book, let me summarized it for you (highlight below to read spoilers):
<…>Once upon a time aliens blew up the Earth by accident, then a bunch of people hung out at the Infinity Hotel for forever until it wasn’t anymore, and that’s when they met Jesus Jr. and went off to explore the universe.<…>
What’s that, now? You really do want to read it? Well, alright then. Let me give you my review.
When I started reading it, it went something like this:
First, the Earth blew up. It was done in the most AMAZING way… by accident! Then I found myself lost on Route 66 with two architectural engineers, and I was going ‘WTF just happened’? That’s when I saw the Infinity Hotel out in the middle of nowhere and realized this was going to be one of those ‘try to keep up’ books.
Then I was<highlight for spoilers><…> trying to help the M.C. get out of the Twilight Zone Hotel, when suddenly an electric blue bear almost ate me, but I got away and found out I was invincible and also fell in love with a beautiful woman from before the Civil War!<…>
No, wait, that wasn’t me.. that was the Main Character!
OMG this is why it’s called Escaping Infinity… you can’t put it down!
The plot… OMG the plot!… is non-stop whiplash where the hell is this thing going and why is it so good! (Yes, that run-on sentence is meant to be read that way!)
The characters… well, there are really only three important ones, but trust me, you will know all about them before it’s over with. And you will like them!
I’m not going to spoil any more of it. Just go buy it!
I really can’t say enough good things about how fun this book was to read. It was genuinely refreshing, and it was a mix of so many genres in one! Some of them are not even my typical reading fare, but they were written so well, so engrossingly, that I could not put it down.
5 HUGE stars for this book, and much appreciation to Mr. Paolinelli for writing it!
I call it an INFINITELY AWESOME READ!
