First Chapter Review: Genius de Milo by Russ Colchamiro

I viewed the first chapter of the sci-fi comedy Genius de Milo by Russ Colchamiro from the Pump Up Your Book website.

BLURB:  Best pals Jason Medley and Theo Barnes barely survived a backpacking trip through Europe and New Zealand that — thanks to a jar of Cosmic Building Material they found — almost wiped out the galaxy. But just as they envision a future without any more cosmic lunacy:

The Earth has started fluxing in and out of existence, Theo's twin girls are teleporting, and Jason can't tell which version of his life is real.

All because of Milo, the Universe's ultimate gremlin.

Joined by the mysterious Jamie — a down-and-out hotel clerk from Eternity — Jason and Theo reunite on a frantic, cross-country chase across America, praying they can retrieve that jar, circumvent Milo, and save the Earth from irrevocable disaster.

In author Russ Colchamiro’s uproarious sequel to Finders Keepers, he finally confirms what we've long suspected — that there’s no galactic Milo quite like a Genius de Milo.

COVER: Love the colors on this one. It picks up the whimsy of something comedic while staying true to its sci-fi genre. It confused me a bit because I wasn't sure if this was a kid's book based upon the cover, but I really like it,

FIRST CHAPTER: Brigsby is drinking a snifter of chocolate milk and watching an episode of LOST when the TV flickers. He and Lawrence have a lively conversation, but Brigsby would prefer to wait until tomorrow to deal with Milo and his antics.

KEEP READING: Sure. It's not my usual fare, but my interest is piqued. The banter between Brigsby and Lawrence is witty enough and I really want to know exactly who Milo is and what he's after. I would also like to meet Jason and Theo to learn how they play into all of this.
