A simple dude into Sci-Fi and Comedy and Non-fiction
This book is way to disjointed to get more than 3 stars, the saving grace was the narrator and his pretty job impressions of Christopher walken and Christian Slater. Acid is bad kids, it'll really mess you up.
At its core this book is Ghost-busters, a group surrounded by and struggling to stop malevolent supernatural forces. Only instead of three groundbreaking scientists there are two slackers, who barely manage to conquer the everyday challenges of life, yet alone the strange new paranormal challenges thrust upon them after taking a strange drug that lifts the veil from their eyes.
The book goes back and forth between brilliant insightful concepts that really make you stop and think, and then weird for the sake of being weird moments punctuated with one to many penis jokes. Its odd but defiantly worth a read if you are into the paranormal.
I'm pretty sure the end of the book is screwed up- cuts off short- although this book is so out there that who knows, it could be how it goes... Just seemed really off. Otherwise it's wonderful.
so amazing I wish that the movie they made based on this book had more parts from the book in it. great story to listen to over and over again!
If a 14 year old wrote a supernatural book complete with penis jokes, gratuitous feces, blood, and vomit scenes, and some unsophisticated one liners, this would be it.

If Stephen King and Larry Correia had a love child, its name would be David Wong . Great story that had me laughing out loud and than questioning myself at why I was laughing at something so disturbing.
This book grabbed me by the ears, slapped me a few times and then had my full attention. Its silly, stupid and yet I could stop listening and laughing. Like a modern day Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy, it dragged me through the story and only at the very end did it let my exhausted brain heave a sigh of relief as understanding dawned.
It won't leave you with a deep understanding of the mysteries of existence instead your left with a goofy smile on your lips.
Yes, the narrator is great and the story line is crazy so I'm sure I missed a couple things the first time I listened to it and will definitely listen to it again.
For the supernatural factor: Odd Thomas. For the hilarity: pretty much any book Christopher Moore has written. Much lighter than any of Joe Hill's books but same unpredictability and strange uniqueness.
No I haven't but I greatly enjoyed this one.
This is a wonderful book. It relishes in it's ridiculousness in the best kind of way. It's funny, suspenseful, completely unpredictable and if you can get past the strangeness of it you will not be disappointed. I definitely recommend this book and narrator.
