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.

    "the movie left a lot out"
    Would you consider the audio edition of John Dies at the End to be better than the print version?

    maybe the movie ended early so they could make a sequel? I don't know. This book is great!


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

    At the end John dies.

    "Amazing"

    If you like far fetched epic sagas, this is the start of one of my favorites.

    "I forgot how much I love this book"

    When I was sixteen, I read the hardback edition, and I love this even more. The narration had me laughing even harder and feeling even more unsettled than I was when reading the book for myself, and the narrator's voice sounds exactly as I imagined David Wong's (the main character). If you like creepy things and low brow humor, give this a go. I strongly recommend it.

    "Fantastic"

    This book was an exercise in insanity! This is not the first time I've said this about a book, and considering there are two sequels to this, it won't be the last!

    Sometimes I'm not sure if I'm too generous with my book ratings, or if I just have superb taste and amazing luck at picking great ones. I'd like to believe it's the latter...so I will.

    My hubby and I, on a late night Netflix binge, saw this movie and were intrigued by the title--hello, spoilers! So we watched knowing it would be my kind of flick. It was bizarre and yet good. Bizarrely good. Horror/comedy with a bit of camp. Everything you need to make a future cult classic. And of course the moment I found out it was based on a book, it went on my wishlist. And let me tell you, it is surprisingly hard to get a used copy of this book! (I was on a budget and trying not to give Amazon any more of my money.)

    And after I finally got a copy, I didn't read it right away. Big mistake! Huge! If I could kick my own butt for waiting so long, I would.

    The whole thing is told from David Wong's point of view (yes the author is also a character). I normally hate first person stories, but this was great. It's about David and John and their ridiculous shenanigans. It's like they get into the kind of situations that you just can't make up. I had a friend like that once. She would get into the craziest stuff, and I was there half the time, so I know she wasn't making it up.

    In the story there's this drug called 'soy sauce' and it's pretty much a gateway to hell--or so Dave and John think. Crazy things happen when you're on the sauce, a whole new part of your mind is opened up to you. And once it's opened, there's no closing it!

    John takes it on purpose, and Dave is accidentially stabbed by the needle he confiscated from John. Now they are seeing things they would have never wanted in a million years, ever wanted to see. And they're able to do things--almost supernatural type things. They get caught up in some serious mess all because of this 'soy sauce', and no matter how hard Dave tries to pull them out, John keeps dragging them in deeper. It's almost like their [undisclosed] town is situated on a hellmouth! And John and Dave are the 'slayers' poised to save the world.

    Everything in this book is just insane. It's the right amount of dark, creepy, crazy and funny. It's like Evil Dead with two good Ashes. I loved every minute of it. And now I'm about to dive into the sequel as soon as I post this.

    ...Why does it always have to be spiders?!

    "Confusing story, great performer"

    The story is a mess but excellent voice acting carries it along way. I agree with other reviews that criticise the plot, but David Wong is able to paint some interesting scenes even if it's hard to follow how they connect.

    "Interdimential Entertainment"

    This book is a fun read, creepy and surprising. I found that just as I thought it was going to become slow and drag on, it picks right back up again. It is broken down into 2 books, but I feel like it is so many stories right after the other that are all related in the end.

    "David Wong is a genius "

    I cannot truly express how much I love this book and everything else he has written. Just do yourself a favor and read it.
