The third book of the John and David series, which began with "John Dies At the End", definitely upticks with 'weird' and 'crazy' elements. In a series that blends horror, science fiction, fantasy and surreal humor, John, David and Amy continuously find themselves getting wrapped into horrific misadventures. These usually involve them happening into to some horrific monster or extra-dimensional horror, attempting to save themselves and the world from it, but ending in results that would have been the same if they just stayed home the whole time. Without spoiling too much, yet another set of extra-dimensional monsters descends on [Undisclosed]. This time in the form of child disappearances. Literally. The monster takes the form of the concept of child disappearances. After getting involved, partially of no fault of their own, the disappearances begin to lead outside observers to suspect Dave and John. This book had all the surreal humor and horror of 'This Book is Full of Spiders', only with less skin crawling creepiness and more humor. We also finally get a small glimpse of why John, David and Amy are seemingly indestructible in the town of [undisclosed]. The locals of the town and even the shady 'They' hierarchy treat the trio with extremely cautiousness, well aware that bad things happen to people who try too hard to hurt them. Of course, their response to hearing this is noting the same happens to people who try to help them, but that's on par for the course. By the end you will absolutely will be wondering "So, is everyone better or worst off?" and "Wait, what did I just read? That's Batmantiss?!" (it'll made sense later). If you enjoyed the dry, surreal wit and meta physical horrors of the first two books, you won't be disappointed here.
