More laugh-out-loud funniness from John Wong. Yes, some of is is positively peurile. But it's still damn funny. ( )

As funny and fun as "John Dies at the End". Books like this are made for me. Someone described them as "Nonchalant Absurdism" and that just about nails it. I smiled and/or laughed the entire time. ( )

As I said in my check ins: JDatE continues to be simultaneously the most disgusting thing I've read while also being super funny AND juvenile, with occasional sincerity. I'm very glad Amy continues to be a core viewpoint, and in a mystery where perceptions lie, it was neat to bounce between David, Amy, and John's perspectives on the same events.

In book 3, Stephen R. Thorne returns to narrate. I feel like Nick Pohdehl had an appropriate mania to his performance in 2, but honestly if I hadn't looked up the narrators I proooooobably wouldn't have noticed the change. I'm glad I read these via audio though, because the performance of shrieks and sounds for the various creepy specters and weirdos we encounter is just so fitting for this. Book 1 had some text-specific things that work better in that format (which makes sense as it started as a web serial), but as audiobooks they're short (under 15 hours) and fun. ( )

Goodreads! This is why we need half-star ratings. 4.5. One of the most unique writing voices you'll ever find. Fantastic if you love your horror with an overabundance of penis jokes. ( )

This was by far the best John Dies at the End book and I absolutely loved every second of it. The series is worth reading for this book alone. ( )
