John Dies at the End (no spoilers!)

Post  serena423 on Wed Jun 29, 2011 9:51 am

Just started reading [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], by David Wong (who's one of the writers for [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

It's a satire of the horror genre while being a horror story itself. The opening scene had me rolling. It was an existential discussion of axes and zombie dismemberment. The whole book is like that--poking holes in the genre and making you think about why certain tropes work, while forcing the characters into the tropes at the same time.

If anyone's a fan of the show Supernatural, you'd definitely like this book!

Horror isn't really my genre, but I do appreciate a good book. I love the title, in any case. ^^

Haha! I'm not much into horror but I do love the writers at Cracked. They always have me rolling on the floor laughing. And the title is great. I'll look into it...
