The two star rating is because as a novel, I didn't find this a very good book. There are a lot (a lot
) of funny moments, amusing characters, and far-out imaginative horror. David Wong is a very clever writer, and he knows how to put together scene for razor-sharp comic effect. But the story felt like a wild and crazy rollercoaster ride going all over the place instead of a journey from A to, well, anywhere. It's more like a sketch comedy show that goes on for two hours than a movie. If you're into that kind of thing, then go for it.
