What the Hell Did I Just Read

NYT bestselling author Wong takes readers to a whole new level with his latest dark comic sci-fi thriller, set in the world of John Dies at the End and This Book is Full of Spiders

John Dies at the End's "smart take on fear manages to tap into readers' existential dread on one page, then have them laughing the next" (Publishers Weekly) and This Book is Full of Spiders was "unlike any other book of the genre" (Washington Post). Now, Wong is back with the third installment of this black-humored thriller series.

Dave, John and Amy recount what seems like a fairly straightforward tale of a shape-shifting creature from another dimension that is stealing children and brainwashing their parents, but it eventually becomes clear that someone is lying, and that someone is the narrators.

The novel you're reading is a cover-up, and the "true" story reveals itself in the cracks of their hilariously convoluted, and sometimes contradictory, narrative.


My Review

I am always in the mood for laughs. This book states it is a black humor book. It was just that and more. If you have never read a black humor book than you are missing out. When it is done right it is great. Mr. Wong has the right elements. Black humor is a bit slap stick silly with crude and over the top jokes. Besides the humor aspect of this book, I liked the sci-fi/horror as well.

This is my first introduction to this series. I have never seen the movie that was inspired from the book, John Dies at the End. Although, as I was reading this book, I kept flashing to the Kevin Smith movies, Jay and Silent Bob. The best part is that the main characters, Dave, John, and Amy are just your regular joes.

Warning, if you are not into sex jokes or references, than you should just turn back now. This book had so many and I am not shy to admit that I laughed at them all. For example, the sex shop is called Venus Flytrap. There are references to butts and dildos as well.

What the Hell Did I Just Read...one of the most awesome books of 2017!
