The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza

Sixteen-year-old Elena Mendoza is the product of a virgin birth.

Or why the boy who shot Freddie, David Combs, disappeared from the same parking lot min Sixteen-year-old Elena Mendoza is the product of a virgin birth. This can be scientifically explained (it?...

    Readers who love the weird genre-bending fiction of Shaun David Hutchinson won't be disappointed. I'd also hand it to readers who love and are itching for weird in the style of AS King. And then for readers who love this book -- particularly the messages about life, about humanity, abo...

    Actual rating: 4.5 Stars! -- I just love Shaun David Hutchinson and his books so much. I've been waiting for this one and I can't believe I've already finished reading it! It was a fantastic edition to his "end of the world series" and I absolutely loved how it connected all...

    "What is going on?" "Maybe nothing," I said. "Maybe the end of the world. I'll let you know when I figure it out." I'm on the fence about The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza. It has many great individual components, but when looking back over the novel as a whole, I didn't enjoy it as ...

    Mais um livro surpreendente do SDH! Elena Mendoza me chamou ateno logo de cara. Garota bissexual, nascida de uma mulher virgem, capaz de performar milagres e lutando contra o fim do mundo! YAS! Acho incrvel como esse o terceiro livro do Shaun sobre fim do mundo (depois ...

    I?m falling asleep and I have to be at work at 5 am tomorrow, so I?ll come back and write a very intensive review later! Update 1/28/18: The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza has all the pieces that should make up a book I would love. It is by Shaun David Hutchinson, the author of ...

    Shaun David Hutchinson's The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza may be one of the craziest, most thought-provoking books I've read in some time, if not ever. It's wild, poignant, forces you to suspend your disbelief, and some may even think it's sacrilegious or blasphemous, but it definitel...

    "What is going on? "Maybe nothing" I said. "Maybe the end of the world. I'll let you know when I figure it out" so I'm finally reviewing this book. And Honestly? I can't remember the last time I felt so indecisive about a book - because I really wanted to love this and yet the mo...

    The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza is everything you can expect from Shaun David Hutchinson: queer characters, the apocalypse, a quirky story and a whole lot of originality. I did not love this book as much as I loved We Are The Ants or At The Edge of the Universe but that is really hard ...

    I had a hard time with this one. I was looking forward to SDH's quirkiness, but there were too many character & prose issues to fall in love with Elena & her world. First, the positives. The representation here is great. Elena is a bisexual Cuban teen who has a crush on Fred...

    I received an DRC from Edelweiss. All opinions in this review are my own. I'm going to say a possibly unpopular statement. I think Shaun David Hutchinson should be as popular as Adam Silvera. Sure, Hutchinson's books aren't nearly as tear jerky as Silvera's but they almost always fe...

    I REALLY liked this, but I feel like the ending was a little weak. I enjoyed the build up immensely, but tbh I almost stopped caring during the last 30 pages or so. Still highly recommend though because the rest of the book was 5 star worthy! ...

    "No one is perfect, no one is flawless, and loving someone means admitting they have faults. It means loving them, not in spite of those flaws, but because of them." I loved this. I knew I would love it from the day I pre-ordered it, but the first hundred pages or so I was worried...

    More of a 2.5 unfortunately I am so disappointed with this book. Shaun David Hutchinson wrote my favorite book of all time: We Are the Ants. Unfortunately, I haven't been very impressed with his books ever since. This book felt like another copy and paste of the same premise as We A...

    um...wow.... Since this doesn't come out until February of 2018, I don't want to say too much, but what I will say is that this book is magnificent. I'm going to be honest, I was quite worried going into this. WE ARE THE ANTS is my favourite book of all time, I was frankly, disa...

    Super interesting concept and story, that I devoured in a few short hours. It gives the reader so much to think about, in terms of life and death, the state of our world, and love. I'll simply say that I underlined a lot of passages in this one that I will hopefully reflect back on. Th...

    I'll always support fiction that gives baby Cthulu a voice. On a humor level Shaun just gets me, or I get Shaun, or there is no getting but his work makes me laugh enough to keep coming back to it. I'm getting off track. The Apocalypse begins at Starbucks and the story of Elena Mendoza...

    I liked this a lot more than I thought I would, considering I DNFed another book by this author after two chapters. I didn't think it was perfect, but I did really like it. Let's start with the good. The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza is a very weird book, and if you know me, you know...

    a book featuring a melodramatic, self-hating, confused bi young girl who wants to die... can't believe my life has been plagiarized like this! So this book took me completely by surprise. This is my first Shaun David Hutchinson, so my expectations were very low (I had no idea what t...

    The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza is like nothing I have ever read before or will ever read again. It is an existential and oddly hilarious book about choices, with a wide cast of amazing characters and some weird mystery thrown in. And I loved it so much. I felt as if I could have read ...
