  1. This is one of the books in my first Nocturnal Reader s Box and I m excited to read it

  2. This Book Is Full of Spiders Seriously, Dude, Don t Touch ItWritten by David WongNarrated by Nick PodehlThis Book Is Full of Spiders Seriously, Dude, Don t Touch It John Dies at the End 2 by David Wong is soooo good I got the audible because I watched the movie for book one and thought listening to the book would be close to watching book two If you haven t read book one, read it first or watch the movie first I watched it on Netflix It is important to know certain details in that book for book [...]

  3. Pre Read Review WANT NOW.Post Read Review I ve read quite a few books this year some good, some bad, but nothing that is as near to perfection as this one Like most fans of John Dies at the End, I ve been waiting for years for Spiders to finally make its way into my hands And like most, I spent that time wondering if it could possibly be as good as the original Or good at all Yes, that thought crossed my mind than once How could it not Now here I am, having finished Spiders last night and I am [...]

  4. I loved the first book in the series, John Dies at the End, for all it s absurd lovecraftian slacker humor and over the top dick jokes and splashy gore and time travel and rastafarian dudes asking you to drink black goo that opens your mind to all the sick and twisted things that crawl around on the surface of the world but you never quite see them.It was a vision of perfection if you love funny horror I kinda made a happy dance.So why didn t I read the second book right away IDK I don t have an [...]

  5. The paranoia of the narrator in David Wong s This Book is Full of Spiders drives this book to its spidery apocalyptic ending The narrator is in turns funny, insightful and painfully annoying I enjoyed this book for a while but found I wasn t looking forward to finishing it It was an entertaining story, but I had become a little tired of spending time in the company of the dysfunctional main characters.

  6. Compared to John Does at the End, the structural problems here are minor This actually reads like a novel rather than the world s worst fix up But, sadly, this wasn t as zany as the first and it didn t have nearly the number of crazy gags, mysterious world building elements, and good humor per page as the first book in this series It had a promising start but resigned itself to be one extended zombie joke for much of its page count Thankfully, the last 25% was a return to form and was satisfying [...]

  7. Going to keep this one short and sweet.Bottom line I liked it, and look forward to David Wong s next book.Did I like it as much as JOHN DIES AT THE END No.Why Because even though the story itself was strong, the quality of the writing seemed rushed and the narrative scattered The personalities of the main characters shifted quite a bit from what I remember in the original book, and the supporting characters in SPIDERS were paper thin, usually summed up with a description of a celebrity they look [...]

  8. David Wong is an incredible writer He isn t an incredible writer because he writes amazingly well He doesn t He writes like a seventh grader typing up some stupid story with his friends in his school computer room during lunchtimes.The incredible part comes in when you take into account that John Dies at the End and now Spiders are two of the most enthralling, unique, funny, touching and interesting novels written in the past ten years Period.There is no way that the writing style should work, b [...]

  9. Sorry, I don t want to be that guy but I just didn t bought it First book was narrated flawlessly and purposefully with a lot of stuff going on and with no short of interesting things getting explained and a bunch of holy shit but funny moments In this book however, I find it very unpleasant to read and then BAM some David Wong Cracked related fact that seems so out of place in the context of the book that it just jolts me from enjoying the narrative itself Also, it felt like a really detailed s [...]

  10. Following up the extraordinary John Dies At The End must have been a daunting task The first in what I m calling David Wong s David Wong series the author s name is a pseudonym and is also the main character s name, as the books are written mostly in the first person was a remarkable achievement, blending wit, juvenile and irreverent humor, and a healthy dose of gory horror The follow up, with what is one of the greatest titles of any book to date, is the continued adventures of David and John, [...]

  11. I received the advance edition in a giveaway yeah having not read John Dies at the End I entered because who doesn t want free books and it looked to be kinda funny I m not great at reviews I m not great at articulating what made a book see So I ll just say the following absolutely love the writing style Love I won t describe it with the Famous Humor Writer meets Famous Horror Writer formulais is, inelegantly stated, its own thing Funny Parts Are Funny Scary Parts Are Scary And Funny I laughed, [...]

  12. First of all, look at that cover On second thought, if you re afraid of spiders, cover your eyes and scroll on by I really like it, and I don t normally take much notice of book covers Pictures don t usually do much for me I d rather have 1000 words But apparently I like pictures of books with holes that have book page spiders crawling out of them Who knew This book is the sequel to John Dies at the End Each book tells a complete story that stands on its own, although there are some fun referenc [...]

  13. How did we screw this all up so badly, John He shook his head We always find a way This Review is Full of SpoilersWarning Opinions are of a childless hardcore dog lover For 394 pages this book was the crazed, hilarious, thought provoking, action packed tale I expected.Then that blackguard Wong killed off Molly Molly was my favorite fictional animal after Rowl from The Aeronaut s Windless I understand why they did it I understand that in a way it was a compliment both to the character and the val [...]

  14. THE thing I love most about this book is that despite the absolute absurdity of everything that happens, the narration makes it feel real Or at least real enough that it is completely hilarious I enjoy that sometimes even our narrator, David Wong, is unable to describe what is happening and you get this passage that is basically the most unbelievable bullshit anyone could come up with but I love it The writing is really amazing It manages to be casual without being overly simple The relationship [...]

  15. I finished reading John Dies just before I went to work on Thursday, found This Book is Full of Spiders and started reading it after work Thursday night Friday morning It s now Saturday afternoon I almost literally could not put this book down You read it and think oh my god there is no way they can get out of this mess this time and so you have to keep reading because you re only 50 pages in and if they all die right then, what is the rest of the book about Again, there are some great one liner [...]

  16. What ever I am reading on October 2 will be put aside for the day and a half it will take me to read this.A mature well, relatively , and therefore less original, book than his first Still, a lot of fun The book seemed always on the verge of making some profound social commentary or of presenting some meta observation on genre convention, but then just thought better of it Anyway, it should be easier than JDatE must have been to adapt into a movie.

  17. This second book in the series is a brilliantly portrayed version of a zombie outbreak, with as much over the top gore, silly humour, and deep, philosophical insights about life and humanity as the first book had me expecting And I loved it even than the first one I think my favourite thing about this book, was Amy She is such a realistic and relatable character to me that I adored every bit of time I got to spend in her points of view I love how this book let us see the POVS of Amy and John al [...]

  18. How did we screw this all up so badly, John He shook his head We always find a way John and Dave are fucking things up Again This time, they try to rescue the world from spiders that turn people into zombies Or do they You never really know in David Wong s stories You think you do and then BAM, this is what you get John said, Don t you get it You re wasting your time, we re just a couple of inconsequential dipshits in this whole thing The people behind this will take out all three of us We re al [...]

  19. One of the blurbs for this book mentions that the author manages to keep up the horror while also being funny, which is both true and an incredibly good thing, because when you re reading a book that s designed to keep your shoulders tight from the suspense and this book is designed to keep you in suspense you really need to be able to laugh once in a while, or a lot, or you re probably going to strain something.The jerkiness of the storyline got a little frustrating around midway through the sk [...]

  20. I wish I could warp back to the time when I first read John Dies at the End It was two or three in the morning, I had just discovered that I could browse the internet via my Wii, and I somehow stumbled upon it The hours that followed and several months later, after he updated it with the ending were some of my favorite times reading a book The raw, unfiltered originality is something that still sticks with me today I don t think it was a literary work of art, nor do I think the story was necessa [...]

  21. An outstanding book The plot is built around a pending apocalypse, and it has everything evil, horror, wit, irony, humor, monsters, friendship and love The jacket describes it as a cross between Douglas Adams and Stephen King and I would say that s dead on I liked this as much or than any King book I ve read Really original characters One of the best books I ve read this year

  22. This Book is Full of Spiders is an interesting book for many reasons The poignant and deceptively hilarious narrative is full of provoking ideas and is not at all scared of showing them to you, often alongside descriptions of graphic violence and male nudity For that reason alone it would be a good book, but there is always to it.There s a lot of hidden meat to the story, subtle nods and references that can only be perceived if the reader is paying close attention and has absorbed the book s un [...]

  23. I wanted SO much to like this book, in fact it is a long time since I have shown such doggedness in sticking with a book, even when, in this case, I truly DISliked it Great pedgigree, brilliant reviews, gorgeous cover and cracking opening meant that there was SO much in favour of this book being a hit with me But it wasn t, it just wasn t The chatty nature of the narrative grated after a while and I found it impossible to stick with the plot developments and was ultimately disorientated by what [...]

  24. 3.5 StarsThis Book is Full of Spiders is both a bit of a disappointment and move towards the ordinary After the mind blowing John Dies at the End, I had far too high of expectations for the follow up novel First, I have to admit that this is still a blast of a read and a fast page turner It is also still stranger and unique than most fiction these days It is a piece of bizzaro Unfortunately, I have read John Dies at the End multiple times and seen the movie, elevating it to unrealistic levels f [...]

  25. This Book Is Full of Spiders Seriously, Dude, Don t Touch It has an amazing title It is, I should point out, wholly accurate this book is really fucking full of spiders Big spiders, little spiders, REALLY big spiders, spiders with human faces, and so on Being the sequel to one of my favorite books, John Dies at the End, it had a lot of promise But here s how it goes Take everything you hated about John Dies at the End it s gone.Take everything you loved about John Dies at the End oops, it s gone [...]

  26. Stop I don t care what you are doing, stop it Seriously, stop it right now.Grab your keys, grab your bike, your favorite pair of shoes, and go buy this book.Well I suppose you could flip on your WiFi eBook enabled device, slap down twenty invisible credit moneys and start reading even faster.To say this book was good is a grossly inadequate yet appropriate understatement Understatements, like hyperboles, help create a sense of awe and appreciation for that which is difficult to describe in typic [...]

  27. From the reviews that I have read from this book, I knew I was going to either love it or hate it I am so relieved that I absolutely loved it As in, I am going to re read it many many times and forever think of it as a favorite I read John Dies at the End about three years ago, and I had never read anything that simultaneously had me laughing so hard I was crying and also terrified to turn the lights out SO GOOD Also, what an original story.Now, This Book is Full of spiders will not have that ra [...]

  28. This was greatbut there was something missing I can t quite put my finger on it, but somewhere between John Dies at the End and here, something got lost The first book had an element of surrealism that completely took me by surprise and had me laughing out loud This book just didn t have it I feel like this is what so often happens when a lesser known internet comedy writer suddenly goes to published author with a movie deal because this happens all the time of course All the indefinable fun stu [...]

  29. Reading this book is like sitting in a chair opposite David Wong Only you re duct taped to the chair, because he s a Cracked writer, and probably has seen some serious shit You remember my previous book He asks, like a Bond villain making idle chatter What John Dies at the End Yeah That was funny and emotional Really genuine I liked the movie, too Good He smokes some kind of pretentious cigar You don t need to have read that, but you ll pick up on some other stuff if you did Good Now, I m going [...]
