This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously Dude, Don’t Touch it, by David Wong November 4, 2012Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Books, Brilliant words, Mutants, Uncategorizable.
This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don’t Touch It is a seriously fun book. The long-awaited sequel to (but standalone read) John Dies at the End, This Book contains the same drollery about fantastic happenings that I found so amusing in John Dies, and introduces some interesting characters to boot. The reader (whose name I have already forgotten) of the audiobook gives things just the right twists, inflections and pathos in turn to render the listening experience delightfully surreal, and sardonic—just as it should be.
On Amazon the Audible version is $17.95 and the CD version is $17.99, which tells me the value of the CD and shipping and handling. Curiously, the CD for John Dies is $21.86 and the Audible is $17.95, actually cheaper than the hardcover ($18.47).
Both are available at sfpl.org, still my personal favorite media outlet. It is true that they don’t deliver to the house, but the electronic versions do load to your Kindle, so there is that.
