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.
This is one of the craziest books I've ever read - completely unpredictable, and unlike anything you've ever read before. The only work I can compare it to is Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide - that kind of wild romp into the imagination. This one's a bit scary though and much more bizarre, in between the levitating pigs and such things. Funny, scary, random, unique - if this is what you're after, JOHN DIES delivers! A wild ride, for sure!
A Wild Ride!
A dark, very funny horror story. Laugh out loud horror story. Think Life, the Universe and Everything ad-libbed by Jack Black on LSD. It's comparable to Douglas Adams only in that it's not like anything else. You never have any idea were it's going but it all makes it's own kind of sense in the end. Rock and Roll, video games and unspeakable terror. Perfectly read by Stephen R. Thorne. So well done in fact I'm buying other books read by him based on this one alone.
Totally Strange and Utterly Hilarious
This is one of the weirdest books I've ever read (listened to) and I loved it. At times horrifying, and almost always hilarious. Stephen Thorne handles this crazy story extremely well, bringing all the humor across perfectly, and even translating the main character's small asides (to himself) so well that I imagine they must be funnier hearing them than reading them. With a less talented narrator, I imagine this odd story might have been hard to follow, but Thorne takes the listener along for the crazy ride--never leaving them behind, and consistently making them laugh. Try not to drink anything when listening to this.
