Review

"Sure to please the Fangoria set while appealing to a wider audience, the book's smart take on fear manages to tap into readers' existential dread on one page, then have them laughing the next." --Publishers Weekly

"If you want a poignant, laugh-out-loud funny, disturbing, ridiculous, self-aware, socially relevant horror novel than This Book is Full of Spiders is the one and only book for you." --sfsignal.com

"A fun, fresh take on horror...Genre fans should definitely seek it out." --horror view

"It s a variation of the zombie myth, but with an incredibly creepy twist." --Following the Nerd

"Seriously dude, touch it and read it." --Huffington Post

"When it's not being creepy, this novel is fun, sarcastic and addictive. Imagine Jay and Silent Bob crossed with The Walking Dead...then add spiders. Which all adds up to scarily good fun! --The Tattooed Book

Product Description

Fan favourite David Wong takes readers to a whole new level with this blistering sequel to the cult sensation John Dies at the End, now a movie starring Paul Giamatti.

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.

Praise for John Dies at the End:

"John Dies at the End…[is] a case of the author trying to depict actual, soul-sucking lunacy, and succeeding with flying colors." –Fangoria

“David Wong is like a mash-up of Douglas Adams and Stephen King . . . ‘page-turner’ is an understatement.” --Don Coscarelli, director, Phantasm I–V and Bubba Ho-tep

“David Wong has managed to write that rarest of things---a genuinely scary story.” --David Wellington, author of Monster Island and Vampire Zero

"The rare genre novel that manages to keep its sense of humor strong without ever diminishing the scares." --The Onion AV Club

“Sure to please the Fangoria set while appealing to a wider audience, the book's smart take on fear manages to tap into readers' existential dread on one page, then have them laughing the next.” –Publishers Weekly

"When it’s funny, it's laugh-out-loud funny, yet when the situation calls for chills, it provides them in spades."--Kirkus Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first 18 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback
I rank John Dies at the End (JDATE) as one of my favourite books, but it has flaws. Due to the way that it was written, in parts over time, the story becomes a bit too random and piecemeal. It's as if the author didn't have an end point and was having to stick together interesting story ideas while somehow finding a driving narrative between them.

This second book solves this issue and offers a fully fleshed out, coherent story from start to finish while maintaining the humour that made JDATE such an enjoyable read. On the humour front I have to say that this book isn't quite as funny as JDATE and there are long periods of the book where humour isn't used but this is actually part of some excellent pacing and made the book scarier. Breathless horror sequences and chases are broken up by ridiculous encounters and well placed humour which keeps you turning page after page.

All-in-all an excellent read!

A couple of notes:
If you are new to this series I would recommend reading JDATE first as it is great, but it is not essential. You can read this book as a stand alone and you will not be lost.
My version of the book (paperback version) had a printing error on page 397 where a couple of pages were out of sequence, I am not marking down for this as it may have just been my copy and it didn't affect my enjoyment of the story, but just so you know!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read with no pretensions 22 Feb 2013
By Peter
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an excellent not-quite-parady of a zombie horror story. John and David's inherent uselessness are captured in an entirely believable way. everyone knows someone who is like John or David to some degee.

whilst a hilarious take on the genre, what happens is far more believable than most novels. Am waiting eagerly for the next one

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than the First 27 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
'This Book Is Full of Spiders' could have proved that Mr. Wong had only one story to tell. It manages however to be a scintillating, surreal novel. I cared about all the characters, even the villains. Episodes involving supernatural creatures managed to be fresh and vivid. Some of the humour is puerile, but never inappropriate. Dialogue felt natural and characterful. Not one word, in short, was superfluous.

I have two problems with the novel. First, the 'furgun' felt like a random addition. Second, many details should be familiar to Mr. Wong's readers. Characters give facts about human behaviour and genre tropes that can be found in Mr. Wong's articles on Cracked. These are the only reasons why I gave the novel four stars instead of five. Buy it please without hesitation. Hopefully, Mr. Wong will write another.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless 6 Oct 2012
By Daniel
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You certainly need to read the first book before this, not because it is essential but because it is equally brilliant.

David Wong is exceptional at combining horror and comedy and still delivering them at 100%. One moment I cried with laughter (well, most pages had me crying with laughter) and others just had me crying. I now check every corner of my room for spiders before sleeping.

I recommend you do the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first one! 28 Nov 2013
By SJR
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm really not going to say too much because I'll get all excited and start giving stuff away. All I've got to say is, if you read John dies, you'll love this book. And if you haven't read John dies, go and look at that, work out if the genre's for you from those reviews..... And then buy it. These are seriously some of my favourite books. Also worthy of noting is that it isn't so forced as the first book, and there's none of that awkward section changing that made John dies feel like the author was struggling just to keep things going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 10 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This Book Is Full Of Spiders really seems like a step forward for Wong. Just as interesting, unique and mildly disturbing as the first novel, TBIFOS is much more streamline in it's story and not as messy and disjointed as it's predecessor. I honestly look forward to more.
If you enjoyed John Dies at the End buy this now!

Great book. More horror focused and less scatter-gun humour than the previous John Dies at the End novel, but is much better for it with tighter plots and characters you feel for. Read more
