This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously Dude Don't Touch it Paperback
by DAVID WONG
In this blistering sequel to the bestselling cult sensation, "John Dies at the End", our heroes find that books and movies about zombies may have triggered a zombie apocalypse, despite a total world absence of zombies.
Hilarious, terrifying, engaging and wrenching, this is a wild ride with two slackers from the midwest who really have better things to do with their time than prevent disaster.

Review by AdonisGuilfoyle
With a cover and title that lower the contents to the level of a Darren Shan type horror story for teenage boys, I have no idea why I picked up David Wong's second novel, but I'm glad I did. I have never laughed so much in ages, and at one point I think I was actually hysterical, though that could just have been me. A clever and funny take on the zombie genre, which has never appealed to me before - vampires, check, shambling undead mutants, no thanks - Wong combines action, conspiracy theory, gore, parasites in spider form and that droll, adolescent type of humour that American writers are so good at (of the 'Boom, bitches!' variety). All hell breaks loose in a small, 'undisclosed' midwestern town, and only two guys, David and John, and David's girlfriend Amy are able to save the day. Of course. Brilliant fun, and kudos for the reference to <i>Star Trek</i> (never really thought of the transporters like that!)
