I have read several books by David Wong before, and so I was very excited to start this one. A few minutes in, it was clear that it was in his usual style, that slightly vulgar, but still hysterical style that he wrote John Dies in the End, etc.
The story is in a futuristic place, where cars drive themselves and cell phones project holograms of the callers, but it’s still familiar enough that the characters can hit the Wendy’s drive-thru for some chili or botch an at-home hair dying job. Wong does a great job striking the perfect balance of the two. There are so many twists and turns, so hold on to the seat of your voice controlled car, and enjoy the ride.
Whether or not you’ve read any other books by David Wong before, this one will not disappoint, it’s a great book and a ton of fun to listen to.

This is a shockingly bad book. The plot has enough holes in it to move an entire armored convoy through, the characters are two dimensional, and Zoe appears to be suicidally deranged. Add to this bad dudes that are epic unless confronted by her and you have something that not only doesn't hold up, it bores you to tears while doing so. P.S. Don't blame this on the narrator. She actually did as good a job as anyone could do with this material.

This was a great story for me. I was initially upset to find out that it was not the third book in the David and John stories. However here he has created a great new world populated by interesting characters. The humour remains sharp if a little childish, but if you like wongs work as an author and writer for cracked that's what you will enjoy. The narration on the whole was enjoyable, but at times a little inconsistent. despite this I would like to hear more books read by Romano. In short I now have two book series' to look forward to from Wong.

Great story, utterly ruined by the narrator who destroyed the clever writing by stressing the wrong words in the sentences.
Really fun novel. Christy Romano does a great job bringing characters to life in this Audiobook
