It's the story "They" don't want you to read. Though, to be fair, "They" are probably right about this one. To quote the Bible, "Learning the truth can be like loosening a necktie, only to realize it was the only thing keeping your head attached." No, don't put the book back on the shelf -- it is now your duty to purchase it to prevent others from reading it. Yes, it works with e-books, too, I don't have time to explain how.

While investigating a fairly straightforward case of a shape-shifting interdimensional child predator, Dave, John and Amy realized there might actually be something weird going on. Together, they navigate a diabolically convoluted maze of illusions, lies, and their own incompetence in an attempt to uncover a terrible truth they -- like you -- would be better off not knowing.

Your first impulse will be to think that a story this gruesome -- and, to be frank, stupid -- cannot possibly be true. That is precisely the reaction "They" are hoping for.

John Dies at the End 's "smart take on fear manages to tap into readers' existential dread on one page, then have them laughing the next" ( Publishers Weekly ) and This Book is Full of Spiders was "unlike any other book of the genre" ( Washington Post ). Now, New York Times bestselling author David Wong is back with What the Hell Did I Just Read , the third installment of this black-humored thriller series.

Another hilarious installment in the "John Dies at the End" series. Silicone butts, F-roaches, and of the amazing trio: John, David, and Amy. I agree that you should read the first two (John Dies at the End, This Book is Full of Spiders) simply because they offer backstory from behind the authors crazy imagination, but "What the Hell did I Just Read" is excellent in its own right as a stand alone novel.

I don't even know where to start - soy sauce? Millibutt? BATMANTIS??? You could probably get away with reading this one if you haven't read the first two 'John Dies at the End' books - but you would be missing out on a lot so just go read them, otherwise you really won't understand why John is the sort of person that would create a sulfur infused dildo launcher.
