Review of 'David Wong John Dies at the End 3 Books Collection Set' on 'Goodreads'

2 stars

I hated this book and I couldn't stop reading it. The humor supposes an audience of 8-year-olds, the characters couldn't have been more shallow and indistinct from the author's voice, and the narrative structure was all over the place. That said, I couldn't put it down. The novel's premise was fun (if vague) and after NYE my brain couldn't really process much more than this. The writing surfed a very thin crest separating "this is stupid" from "what happens next."

Do I recommend it? With trepidation. Do I hate how successful this poorly written novel has become? Yep. The last thing a novice writer needs is yet another reminder of the difference between merit and popularity. Will I read the sequel? Probably. God, I hated this book.
