A book review, because I've gotta culture you chumps up: John Dies at the End

Tuesday, September 21, 2010 5:16 PM By Simon

-Yes, I know, a book by the editor of Cracked.com isn't exactly the epitome of class, but fuck you.

-Anyway, this book kind of rules. Tis funny and scary (oh-so-scary), and everly quotable and there's all these places--Cracked forums, the website--where David Wong and John give concealed background information on what the fuck was going on, man, this shit was weird.

-And it has three distinct plots with one overarching one. And the characters are so funny, even if they do border on two-dimensional (it is first person, after all), and damn.

-Alright, book review over. Let's never do that again.

Culture us up? Paleez! I knew about it!
Love the part where he kills demons with rock music!

I don't know how you did it but after your reading your review I want to read this book. I wish critics were more like you and less like them. In another news, reading Sebastian's comment reminded me to Wild Zero (http://is.gd/fmjpD)
