John Dies at the End is written by Jason Pargin under the pseudonym David Wong. It began as an online written series before being made into a novel. The story is told in first person narrative as David, a guy in his 20's working in a video store, tells a news reporter about the experience he and his best friend John have following a run in (one accidental, one not) with new street drug "soy sauce". "Soy sauce" heightens the senses ten fold and makes those who have consumed it see things others can't. David admits, no one is to be trusted, so the reader has to be careful about what they choose to believe throughout the tale.
It has since been made into a movie and although the book falls under comical horror, I was excited to see how it transferred to the big screen but was massively disappointed at how budget and spoof-y it was. Stick with the novel here guys! I've recently learnt there's a sequel with an equally silly name "This Book is Full of Spiders" and it will definitely find a place on my Christmas list this year.
