I am obviously not the target audience for this book. If I were a 13 year old boy, I might have liked it.
Just a long, winding series of disjointed and nonsensical stories loosely tied by a common thread of increasingly stupid rants on a theme of aliens out to rule the universe against a couple cynical slackers. This is what it must be like to be a paranoid schizophrenic. Can't believe anyone would really enjoy reading or listening to it. Spoiler alert: I didn't like it.
this book held me around 3/4 of the way through, after that I lost interest. there's quite a bit of amusing dialogue throughout but the plot loses focus. an interesting idea, but it was too long.
There is no way we were listening to the same book. I tried and tried again to listen to this, but after about 1-1/2 hours, I had to turn it off. I am just too old and life is too short to waste 14 hours and 20 minutes on this stuff. If an author can't get me in the first few chapters, I am done. This should be played for prisoners in Guantanamo until the cave in and give up any secrets they know. Oh, wait. Torture is illegal. I don't know if John dies or not, and I am not listening to any more to find out! I just don't care!
What genre? Crap is a genre? Well, then, yes it has.
Maybe, but not if it's written by David Wong. Obviously, I can't trust reviews of his work.
Confusion. Why would anyone write this stuff?
Please! NO MORE!
great read. may want to watch the movie first to see if you want to know more from the book. like watching Harry potter good movie but you know they could not fit it all in.
i have yet to listen to a sorry that has made me involuntarily laugh and have such good plot at the same time.
