About the Book

Title: The Eternal Enemy
Published: 1993

The Deal:

Rela saves up money to buy a VCR so she can ogle Mel Gibson’s bare ass in Lethal Weapon in slow-motion. No, really. But as she begins recording news programs, she realizes she’s recording news from…THE FUTURE! (This book gets a sneaky shout-out in Remember Me!)

How Fucked Up Is This Book?


Does the Cover/Title Accurately Represent the Story?

OMG, I love this title and cover. They’re ridiculous, but apropos of the story.

Should I Read (Or Re-Read As an Adult) This Book?

Read it! It’s absolutely crazy!
