    Warning: You may have a huge, invisible spider living in your skull. This is not a metaphor. You will dismiss this as ridiculous fearmongering. Dismissing things as ridiculous fearmongering is, in fact, the first symptom of parasitic spider infection - the creature secretes a chemical into the brain to stimulate skepticism, in order to prevent you from seeking a cure. That’s just as well, since the “cure” involves learning what a chain saw tastes like. You can’t feel the spider, because it controls your nerve endings.

    "Worth it."

    Would you listen to This Book Is Full of Spiders again? Why?

    I definitely would. I enjoyed the book quite a bit (and multiple times), however I spend much of my time driving and this is a very convenient way to listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the characters are great and relatable in many different ways, but it's a fair bet that my, and many other peoples favorite character, is John. If you've read or listened to this book or the one that came before it, John Dies At The End, you'll know why.


    What does Nick Podehl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    With Nick reading the story, and doing a fantastic job of it, you actually get more of a performance than just a story read to you. He brings unique voices to the table that sound like what you imagine the characters would sound like while reading the book.


    If you could rename This Book Is Full of Spiders, what would you call it?

    "David Wong's Second Go-Round: You Don't Need To Read John Dies At The End But You Wouldn't Regret It If You Did"


    Any additional comments?

    You can probably tell by that renaming question, but I'm partial to John Dies At The End. That's the only reason for this audiobook's story getting four of the five stars. It didn't quite keep up with the original. If I hadn't read JDATE, my mind would still have been blown by This Book Is Full Of Spiders.
    And I'm not kidding about Nick Podehl's performance. A bad reader with bad voices will pull you right out of the story but Nick made it better.
