Publisher's Summary

It's the story "They" don't want you to listen to. 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 listening to it. Yes, it works with audiobooks, 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.

Please fix the audio

Great book and great narration, but the audio quality is sub par. I hear shades of Stephen Thorne trying to come through, but the audio quality is holding his performance back. Please do right by the author and narrator and have it fixed.

Audio sounds like it was produced in a tunnel

Just starting to listen to the book so the story can't be reviewed, but the audio quality is terrible. Words with "s" sound clipped, the overall sound is tinny, and it sounds like it was recorded in a tunnel.

Hilarious, intelligent, irreverent horror comedy

Would you listen to What the Hell Did I Just Read again? Why?

Yes - it was well written, performed and great mix of original thought, tension and humour.

What other book might you compare What the Hell Did I Just Read to, and why?

First book of this genre I've listened to; I'm hoping first in series will also be made into an audible version.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Any additional comments?

A little 'grown up' in style of humour so not for young ears - but a really entertaining novel.

Better not be the last in the Dave & John saga!

When David Wong (AKA Jason Pargin) released 'Fancy Suits' I, of course read it, as a dedicated Wongian (a term I hope gains traction) and was a little disappointed that the author seemed to be departing from my beloved John, David and Amy! So, you can imagine my delight when 'What The Hell Did I Just Read' dropped and it certainly does not disappoint!

I have always enjoyed and been fascinated by Wong's ability to force his audience to imagine creatures, worlds and powers that should defy all imagination, yet are visualised in such a vivid realism that it is uncanny! There is one scene in 'What The Hell Did I Just Read' that stands out in particular, all about breakfast, that still stays with me now and I am sure that it will stay with you, long after you haver read it.

A few reviews mention that the book is perhaps too dark and depressing in places, but for me these sections gelled with the rest of the narrative and did not awkwardly stand out.

While this is the third book in the series, it is not entirely necessary to have read the first two books, so you can dive right in to this one, if you would like to, but I would definitely recommend reading all three 'Dave and John' books, two of which can be found here on Audible.

If you enjoyed 'Rick and Morty' and you have not read a David Wong novel, the two have a lot of stylistic things in common, so you should definitely consider trying a David Wong book if you liked this animated series!

The only thing that holds this audiobook performance back from full marks is the narrator. Unfortunately, a lot of the voices do sound similar and it can be a little confusing at times, but I would not let that stop you from enjoying an otherwise very funny, clever and entertaining story!
