John Dies at the End  - David Wong I'd probably give the story itself a 3.5 rating, but I'm bumping the overall score to 4 because some parts are just so absurdly funny.

This book is not necessarily for the faint of heart. It seems like a smash-up of teen horror flicks (and all their grossness, from juvenile humor to creeping levels of dread to gory scenes), dark-humor (a la the Coen brothers), with a side of Jon Stewart/David Letterman style commentary & conversation.

A fun, gross, creepy horror read. Perfect for October.
