Publisher Description

John Dies at the End's "smart take on fear manages to tap into readers' existential dread on one page, then have them laughing the next" (Publishers Weekly) and This Book is Full of Spiders was "unlike any other book of the genre" (Washington Post).

Now, New York Times bestselling author David Wong is back with What the Hell Did I Just Read, the third installment of this black-humored thriller series.

It's the story "They" don't want you to read. Though, to be fair, "They" are probably right about this one. To quote the Bible, "Learning the truth can be like loosening a necktie, only to realize it was the only thing keeping your head attached." No, don't put the book back on the shelf -- it is now your duty to purchase it to prevent others from reading it. Yes, it works with e-books, too, I don't have time to explain how.

While investigating a fairly straightforward case of a shape-shifting interdimensional child predator, Dave, John and Amy realized there might actually be something weird going on. Together, they navigate a diabolically convoluted maze of illusions, lies, and their own incompetence in an attempt to uncover a terrible truth they -- like you -- would be better off not knowing.

Your first impulse will be to think that a story this gruesome -- and, to be frank, stupid -- cannot possibly be true. That is precisely the reaction "They" are hoping for.

More soy sauce! Please! I’m completely addicted!

Seriously though, I loved this book and need more David Wong.

Another Masterpiece by David Wong

It’s not the same, but it’s more of what we asked for as fans. It’s not nearly the breadth of the story of JDATE, but it’s the same quick witted humor, optimistically nihilistic, crass, terrifying writing that I came to know and love in the first two books in this series. David Wong has created an evil multiverse that I want to be a part of, documenting its triumphs and failures of the human experience.

So bad

Makes no sense. Just a bunch of words on a page called a book...
