Blurb: It’s a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.
My thoughts: What can I say about this book? It’s utterly ridiculous, scary, disgusting and hilarious!
The story starts with Dave narrating the events of the past few months to a reporter named Arnie, who understandably has trouble believing him. Not in the least because he refuses to give his real name and acknowledges that he’s not sure if what he remembers is even the truth, assuring Arnie his account is “mostly honest”.
It rapidly descends into chaos… The drug “Soy Sauce” turns out to be a mind-fuck of epic proportions! Giving certain users psychotropic visions, episodes of missing time, time dilation and the ability to see the life and times of the average chicken before death.
I wouldn’t dare ruin it for you but it’s the kind of book you devour in a sitting. Hysterical and disturbing, it toes the fine line between comedy and horror without actually sitting in either genre. Reading it wasn’t really scary but the imagery stays with you and ultimately you’ll find yourself awake at 5 am huddling under the covers waiting for dawn with only your own twisted thoughts to keep you company.
Read it, I can’t promise you won’t regret it but at least you’ll know the truth…
