    The Instant New York Times Best Seller

    Who has the right to change the world forever? How will we live online? How do we find comfort in an increasingly isolated world?   

    The Carls disappeared the same way they appeared, in an instant. While the robots were on Earth, they caused confusion and destruction with only their presence. Part of their maelstrom was the sudden viral fame and untimely death of April May: a young woman who stumbled into the Carls' path, giving them their name, becoming their advocate, and putting herself in the middle of an avalanche of conspiracy theories. 

    Months later, April’s friends are trying to find their footing in a post-Carl world. Andy has picked up April’s mantle of fame, speaking at conferences and online; Maya, ravaged by grief, begins to follow a string of mysteries that she is convinced will lead her to April; and Miranda is contemplating defying her friends’ advice and pursuing a new scientific operation...one that might have repercussions beyond anyone’s comprehension. Just as it is starting to seem like the gang may never learn the real story behind the events that changed their lives forever, a series of clues arrive - mysterious books that seem to predict the future and control the actions of their readers - all of which seems to suggest that April could be very much alive. 

    In the midst of the search for the truth and the search for April is a growing force, something that wants to capture our consciousness and even control our reality. 

    A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor is the bold and brilliant follow-up to An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. It is a fast-paced adventure that is also a biting social commentary, asking hard, urgent questions about the way we live, our freedoms, our future, and how we handle the unknown.

    I miss these wonderful characters already

    After finally listening to the first book I immediately downloaded the sequel. At first it felt a little strange getting to know these people from different perspectives than Aprils, but I soon realized that this is one of the things that makes the book so special and helps transport the message.
    The story kept me listening way too long into the night :) All in all it came full circle and feels complete together with the first book. Still part of me hopes Carl and the Gang will somehow return one day - maybe in Fan fiction.

    Not TOO much on the nose

    Yeah you can "see what he's trying to do" and what the messages are. But they are nuanced enough and the story is engaging enough that you start to flow with it. And then... Accidentally... You let it teach you some stuff and make you optimistic even though you "can see through it". And that's 5 stars hundop
