John Dies At The End by David Wong
Video store worker Dave and his slacker friend John must save the world from inter-dimensional monsters, when they discover they can see the creatures after taking the new drug ’Soy Sauce’.
This is an entertaining comedy-horror novel from an author who also doubles as the editor of entertainment website Cracked.com. The tongue-in-cheek tone is present throughout the story, rather than in laugh-out-loud gags, but the horror elements are there too, and are also well written. Dave’s adventures continue in another two books in the series, and the book was adapted into a movie in 2012.
Not an award-winning literary masterpiece, but a worthwhile use of your time if you are looking for something to kill a few hours.
