My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you ll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrock, about the invasion, and the future. But it is too late. You touched the book. You are in the game. You are under the eye. The only defence is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part about the bratwurst. Why? You will just have to trust me. Unfortunately for us, if you make the right choice, we will have a much harder time explaining how to fight off the otherwordly invasion currently threatening to enslave humanity. I m sorry to have involved you in this, I really am. But as you read about these terrible events and the very dark epoch the world is about to enter as a result, it is crucial you keep one thing in mind: NONE OF THIS IS MY FAULT

Here you can see the exact reason I read this book! I first saw it in the library, on the recommended reads stand. Naturally I lifted it because it was so creepy looking and the back told me not to touch it! Ah now, come on…don’t tell me not to do something – rebel at heart and all that jazz. I ended up buying this book after borrowing it along with the sequel, This Book is full of Spiders. This is a horror/satire and definitely lives up to both genres. I couldn’t put it down. Basic gist is that a guy has taken drugs, his mate has died however can talk to him through his mobile. The antics that take place are the stuff nightmares are made of, in my opinion.
I loved this book, however the film…oh dear goodness, the film…. just don’t bother!! My husband hadn’t read the book and while we were watching it he actually asked me was I sure the book was good. I was utterly appalled at how ridiculous the film was, in all honesty. It is VERY rare a film is better than the book but this did even come close to the book. Speaking of books made into films, I am going to have to watch The Girl on the Train and hope it is better than the book because it just didn’t do it for me at the end.
