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.

    "What the heck????"
    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps it was my own misunderstanding, but when I selected this book, I had extremely different expectations of what the story would be than the absurdity that it actually is. Definitely would not recommend this story to anyone other than an immature "Ghost Busters" fan. Mind you - GB is a brilliant movie... this book just feels like a silly attempt to capture that energy but without any of it's success.

    Story
    "What an imagination!!!"
    Would you listen to John Dies at the End again? Why?

    Probably not....but, it was without a doubt one of the most interesting stories I've listened to in a long time!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    David was...because he was so......clueless...and it's hard to put into words the way the author did!


    Have you listened to any of Stephen R. Thorne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No....I only bought this audio book because I had just seen the movie 3 nights earlier...and when I was looking for a book to purchase....here it was!


    If you could rename John Dies at the End, what would you call it?

    I think "John Dies at the End" is a much better eye catcher than "The Soy Sauce"

    "My kind of weird."

    I love the narrator, he really made it cause hes good with dry delivery. This book is totally weird and caught me off guard with it's absurdity. I found it hilarious.

    Any additional comments?

    This book started off a little quirky but interesting but quickly headed down hill fast. I'm not sure if the author lost his train of thought or just couldn't figure out where to go with the story but by the end I was ready to shoot Dave and John myself just to end it all!!

    Story
    "Very entertaining."
    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is engrossing, and the author cuts the tension with the character's offbeat humor.


    What about Stephen R. Thorne’s performance did you like?

    The narrator is excellent. His tone perfectly reflects the attitide of the main character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There is, but no spoilers.


    Any additional comments?

    SOOO much better then the movie.

    Life long fan of the mystery story. I like books where something actually happens, so history and biography are favorites of mine also. I also think that even good books are improved tremendously when an actor performs the narration.

    "No point, no plot, just rambled"

    Narration is boring, plot is non-existent, seemingly no end to this long, long, long winding road.

    Story
    "A really enjoyable read"
    What did you love best about John Dies at the End?

    I loved the story and the humor


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    David is the best but it's hard not to love the narrator of a story.


    What does Stephen R. Thorne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Timing. The way he reads you get the jokes that you might not reading on your own.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    In many ways, yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to more reads by David Wong

    Story
    "Wow...where do I start"
    Would you try another book from David Wong and/or Stephen R. Thorne?

    No, not ever


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Wong again?

    No, not ever, not even if it is free. I spent maybe 10 hours on this book, quitting and retrying again and again, no more of my time will be donated to this.


    What about Stephen R. Thorne’s performance did you like?

    He tried very hard to bring this book to life and was probably one of the more entertaining readers I've ever heard.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I looked and listened very hard. There were several times that it almost clicked, but then the story and characters would become incoherent. The author is obviously a bright guy, probably an incredibly bright guy, but there was no storytelling here no entertainment unless you just want to waste 10 hours or so on a near random, confusing story path.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the author the best of luck, but he needs a good editor, not just a good reader. The book seemed to have no coherence and every time that story seemed to move into a logical or illogical progression, it was like the author became bored and just changed the rules. Hey, I'm tired of writing about this, let's just twist this into something that has no bearing on the story or add absolutely no value to the non-plot. This wasn't just bad, or something in a genre I'm not a fan of, it was an absolute train wreck.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to a friend ... Because my friends are the type that would understand why this book is awesome!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humor was great.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    A difficult question. Probably the last scene ... Playing basketball.


    If you could take any character from John Dies at the End out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    John, he's a riot.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    "meh"

    This was worth listening to, I guess, once.

    I just couldn't get to either liking or hating the main characters. You know how sometimes you can't wait until a character is killed off? Or you dread the possibility? With these guys, I just couldn't care less.


    I think I would have liked this better if it were shorter.
