John Dies at the End (John Dies at the End #1) by David Wong Review ~Kami

John Dies at the End (John Dies at the End #1)
by David Wong

This book is all over the place. I am curious to see the movie. John and David start taking a drug nicknamed Soy Sauce that can cause a number of magical and supernatural abilities in its user. Apparently the drugs sends its users through time and parallel dimensions but sometimes when they return they are no longer human. It takes a few chapters to get into the story and to understand what exactly is going on. It is horrifyingly, dream-like, hallucinatory descriptive. I thought it was really strange but then I started getting into it. “You might be able to read minds, make time stop, cook pasta that's exactly right every time. And you can see the shadowy things that share this world, the ones who are always present and always hidden.” I am not a big fan of poop and penis jokes so those were getting kind of old really fast but this book is so bizarre that I was really fascinated by it. 4 stars.
