Product Description

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

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!

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.

The sequel is ok. It's funny, especially the first half, but it takes some time to get you hooked into it. When I but this type of easy novels I expect to be addicted to them and finish them rather quickly, but it wasn't the case with this one. I think it's because Amy's and John's stories were clearly less exciting than David's, so it was always a turn down when the point of view changed to those characters. In any case, it's not a bad book, and it's got several funny moments, which was the main I was going for.

I saw the film "John dies at the end" a few years ago and thought it was a good, solid comedy/horror movie. I had no idea it was based on a book until my sister got me it for my birthday. I put off reading it for a few months because I'd already seen the film, but it ended up being one of the most enjoyable reading experiences I've ever had. I decided to re-watch the film because I loved the book so much and then found myself hating the film. It misses out about 90% of the book, leaving out so many of the best bits and keeping some of the less interesting parts.
Anyway, I was very excited when I got my copy of "This book is full of spiders". As good as it is, it's not entirely what I was expecting. This is more zombies and gore while "John dies at the end" has more of a surreal, twisted and genuinely creepy feel to it.
I feel I might have enjoyed this book more had it not been linked to the prequel, which would have been possible.
There were a lot of nods to the previous book which seemed to be put there purely for advertisement purposes, which pulled me out of the story a bit.
The change of inner monologue between the different characters got a bit tedious, perhaps it was necessary but I much preferred the parts when Dave, John and Amy were together as a group.
I did like the book very much. I didn't fully realize this wasn't going to be the book I was expecting until about 2 thirds of the way, but I did enjoy the read. Still has the horror and the humour but not to the same quality as the first. I would recommend if you were a fan of the previous book.

Continuing on from the slacker slasher of John Dies at the End, TBIFOS sees things getting even weirder in undisclosed, with John and David right at the blackened pulsating heart of the action, much to their chagrin. Still in the wrong place at the wrong time, this isn't as out and out gtruesome as the first, but maintains it's twisted sense of humour and is even 'borrowed' from by the Big Bang Theory. It's pacy, tense, freaky and funny - if Kevin Smith ever did Clerks as a horror movie, this would be it.

If you're buying this and haven't read John Dies and the End please put it down and read that first, then this book will make so much more sense.
Such a page turner, David Wong is an incredible writer who really writes how people speak. I'm hoping he releases many more books. I've bought the set for friends for birthdays as I think everyone should read it.

Contrary to what the other reviewers have said, I feel this book can be read independently. All the back story you need to know is explained. And it really isn't a continuation of the 1st book, as Korrach, the villain of the 1st book doesn't make an appearance, and has no role. I'm not even sure how it ties to the 1st book.

Anyway. The 1st book, John dies at the end was a crazy book. Funny, outrageous. It also had a problem that it ran out of steam at the end, with a confusing ending. Also, the story jumped all over the place.

This book has a more tighter story. Invisible spiders which only the heroes can see start taking over the bodies of people, and turning them into zombie like beings. Obviously the government turns up and blames our guys. Soon they are running from both the government and the spiders.

I found this book a little less funny and crazy than the 1st. Still a great book, I stayed up really late to finish it, but not as funny. But I think it doesn't matter, as the story is better plotted this time. The story is more thrilling and has more suspense/horror.

So give it a try. You will love it.
