I didn't care for it, but I have a hard time with novellas and short stories. It is nominated for a Hugo, so stay tuned....
A story of amateur film makers trying to make people laugh in the face of the apocalypse. An offbeat account of ordinary people dealing with large scale tragedy in a way that makes sense for them.
This book didn't capture me right off the bat. It seemed a bit scattered and insubstantial at first - weird for the sake of being weird. But there's a level of bizarre and disturbing that grows in the background as you read and it becomes compelling. It's also pretty funny and wonderfully kinetic. Oddly, this book reminds me of reading histories of tumultuous times. History tells the big picture stories but it can't really tell you what it must have been like for regular folk living through dangerous times: how people went about their day-to-day in the midst of everything. "Rock Manning Goes for Broke" accomplishes what history can't - it lets me feel what it's like to be a regular person living through big, dangerous events.
