John Dies At The End

My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you ll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrock, about the invasion, and the future. But it is too late. You touched the book. You are in the game. You are under the eye. The only defence is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part about the bratwurst. Why? You will just have to trust me. Unfortunately for us, if you make the right choice, we will have a much harder time explaining how to fight off the otherwordly invasion currently threatening to enslave humanity. I m sorry to have involved you in this, I really am. But as you read about these terrible events and the very dark epoch the world is about to enter as a result, it is crucial you keep one thing in mind: NONE OF THIS IS MY FAULT.

I just found this really dragged. The Best bit was in the prologue , and it just went downhill from there. The attempts to tie the disparate stories together in to a whole failed abysmally, and actually worked less well than the short vignettes about the meat monster etc

This was incredibly entertaining with a number of laugh out loud moments but it didn't quite hold together and felt more like a collection of amusing (and occasionally horrific) moments than a structured single novel. Not much more to say than that really; I'll probably read the follow ups.
