reviewed John Dies at the End by David Wong

John Dies at the End (Paperback, 2021, St. Martin's Griffin) 3 stars

Plot-less, eye-roll inducing and at times offensive (dnf)

1 star

Tries to go for funny and modern/internet-ish language, but ends up just being just a mishmash of mentions of the word "penis", disjointed episodes revolving around cthulhu-esque monsters, and a smattering of slurs (both racial and mental-health related) that maybe are meant to "be in character" but seemed gratuitous to me.

I was amused and entertained at first, but after reading a good third of the book I realized that the only ideas the author had were to keep dialing up the literal shit, dicks and the slurs.
