Review: What The Hell Did I Just Read
What the Hell Did I Just Read - David Wong

I feel like I say this every time I review a book from this series, but this was an exercise in insanity!

 

Let me start by saying, there's only so much I can say without spoiling.  I'm about to say something that may be of an unpopular opinion; I don't know because I haven't talked to anyone who has read the series, but here it is:  I don't like Amy.  I don't know what it is about the character, but she just irks the hell out of me, and I cannot remember if I felt this way after reading the first two novels.  Even though I get the reason for her character, at the same time, I don't see the point of her.

 

That being said, John and Dave had yet another not-so-excellent adventure in [Undisclosed].  Just when I think the author couldn't possibly come up with a more, profane, creepy, hilariously convoluted story than the last, he goes and does it with style.  The kind of person you have to be to come up with this stuff... all the blessings to the author's wife!

 

Seriously, this was creepy, funny, and ridiculous.  If you've read the series, you understand why it's so hard to describe.  If you haven't read the series, you're missing out.  Go read it.  Right now!

 

I went back and forth between the paperback and the audiobook.  Whatever audio issues people were having when it was first released must have been fixed, because I thought it was great quality and a pretty good performance.  I think I may have liked the narrator of the second book a little better--taking away nothing from this narrator.  Overall it was a very good story and performance.

Review: This Book Is Full Of Spiders
This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It (Trade Paperback) - David Wong

I. Hate. This. Book.

 

Okay, not really, but the ending, which I won't spoil, was upsetting.

 

So let me tell you, this book was well and truly full of spiders.  Gross.  It made me shudder just reading about them!!!!  This sequel was all together creepier, and more serious than it's predecessor.  John Dies At The End, while creepy, and it had it's sad parts, was a lot lighter and more humorous.  Things in this book escalated quickly.  Stuff got serious within the first chapter or two.

 

It doesn't take away from the book at all.  This was equally good, and it was evident that things clearly had to get worse this time around.  John and Dave are thrown into save-the-world situations, again, only this time they get separated and have to work toward the same goals while apart.  It definitely made for some anxious moments and the reader routing for them to make their way back together.  

 

There was still humor, and John and Dave's shenanigans will probably always be epic.  I am very much looking forward to the next installment!

Technically this book is only 406 pages; the rest is a excerpt from another book.  So I am soooo close to the end!  It's so good, but I'm so tired.  I need to nap before I can continue.  It's sad getting to the end, because there will be no more John and Dave shenanigans until the next book...which isn't out until October.  *sigh*
