This Book Is Full of Spiders


Item Details

"Originally released as an online serial where it received more than 70,000 downloads, John Dies at the End has been described as a "Horrortacular", an epic of "spectacular" horror that combines the laugh out loud humor of the best R-rated comedy, with the darkest terror of H.P. Lovecraft. The book went on to sell an additional 60,000 copies in all formats. As the sequel opens, we find our heroes, David and John, again embroiled in a series of horrifying yet mind-bogglingly ridiculous events caused primarily by their own gross incompetence. The guys find that books and movies about zombies may have triggered a zombie apocalypse, despite a complete lack of zombies in the world. As they race against the clock to protect humanity from its own paranoia, they must ask themselves, who are the real monsters? Actually, that would be the shape-shifting horrors secretly taking over the world behind the scenes that, in the end, make John and Dave kind of wish it had been zombies after all. Hilarious, terrifying, engaging and wrenching, This Book Is Full of Spiders, the next thrilling installment, takes us for a wild ride with two slackers from the midwest who really have better things to do with their time than prevent the apocalypse.

WOW....what a great book! It keeps you intrigued and want more. I was so sad to come to the end of the book; moreso to know there is not next book. It's funny without being too corny or lose the horror factor.

Read John Dies at the End before reading this one. It will make more sense. Just as with the first book this one has a bunch of crazy things going on that threaten to end life as we know it with two slacker dudes being the only ones who can do anything about it. If you liked the first book, just know that this is more like one adventure out of the David and John adventure series - you're not going to find out that much more about the nefarious forces that are threatening them or what the real end game is. However, it was very entertaining, and as usual, super duper weird. Enjoy!

Yes, you probably want to give "John Dies at the End" a shot before delving into this one. As you might know, JDatE was a rambling story Jason Pargin AKA David Wong put on his blog for fun, before it exploded and was practically begging to be exploited for sweet, sweet $$$$. Since JDatE was never necessarily bound for print, its narrative is a little loose, Wong aiming to top each previous, outrageous scene. "This Book Is Full of Spiders" has a more coherent structure. The jokes don't fly quite as hard and fast as the original, but having a slightly more focused narrative is a fair trade.

This book is hilarious!!! And intense at one part. But you have to read John Dies at the End first for this book to make sense. Spiders is the sequel to John Dies and the author doesn't do much in trying to catch the reader up on what is going on and why.

Hysterical combo of zombie apocalypse and love story for humanity. Loved this; am going back to read the prequel.

The intro and first few pages are irreverent and humourous, but the book quickly devolves into incoherent rambling. A disappointment after such a promising opening and clever cover. Neither my 16 year old son nor myself (47 year old female) could get past the first 10 pages.

As good as, as fun as, the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I loved this book I mean funny and weird such a combo.
