Publisher's Summary

STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don't put it down. It's too late. They're watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you'll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You touched the book. You're in the game. You're under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why? You just have to trust me. The important thing is this: The drug is called Soy Sauce and it gives users a window into another dimension. John and I never had the chance to say no. You still do. I'm sorry to have involved you in this, I really am. But as you read about these terrible events and the very dark epoch the world is about to enter as a result, it is crucial you keep one thing in mind: None of this was my fault.

    "Love it"

    As a house-wife I listen to new Audible books every few days. However, I've listened to this book six times and I'm still not finished with it. I love the story, the narration, the outlandish adventure, and the actual wording. A big thank you to David Wrong for his books.

    "Amusing"

    Good narration, amusing character display (some people DO reference their "junk" whenever possible), peculiar last 45 minutrs fizzling out a bit

    Story
    "It's Just Empty"

    I made it about a third of the way into the book and just ground to a halt. The book feels like it's been written by your average college student. There's a sophomoric feel to it. The characters are cardboard, the plot drags on, the situations are repetitive. While many have commented on the gruesome nature of the story, that didn't bother me. What got to me was the author's need to string along a series of gross-out scenes, like a literary haunted house. There's no rhythm to the narrative, just monotony. The story lacks space for the reader to get to know the characters. Perhaps this unfolds later in the book, but I found myself listening less and less until I'd actually forgotten that I had it on my iPhone.

    "I love this book!"

    This is a great book and I listen to it all the time. I find new things I missed before even though I have listened at least a dozen times.

    "Nick Podehl should have read this one"

    The greatest horror story I have ever read is John Dies at the End. The only thing not to love about this verison is the narrator; the story really needs a lot of flare to work and this guy just doesnt have it. The guy who narrated "Name of the Wind" (Nick Podehl, sry if spelling is off) should have narrated this one.

    Story
    "Absolutely fantastic absurdist horror comedy"
    Would you listen to John Dies at the End again? Why?

    David Wong is an exceptional writer. He injects humor throughout the book and keeps the plot moving in wonderful and unexpected ways. For those who saw the movie, the book is considerably better (and I enjoyed the movie). The book adds considerable emotional depth to the characters and does such a great and serious job describing a violent event from high school that it almost seems out of place in this version of Clerks vs. Cthulu. The book has layers to it. It's got a wonderful juvenile sense of humor, but it also tackles some oddly serious subjects. Furthermore, it does a phenomenally subtle job of changing the past events of the book in accordance with the rules of the book's universe. Extremely well done.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Cheese perfectly represents that one friend we all have from high school. That guy.

    Story
    "Stephen King meets M.I.B...but not in a good way"

    Meh. Story combined the super natural weird of a King novel with the goofy, gross, absurdist sense of humor of the MIB movies but it failed to either truly disturb or charm the way either of those do.

    The story just wanders from gimmick to one-liner to random turn of event. I'm glad I listened to it while doing other things or I'd have felt like I was wasting time.

    I never saw the movie or heard if it was any good. I could see that this could be a fun 90 minute or 2 hour romp, but I can't recommend as a 14 hour listen.
