I love this audio book, it is engaging, pulling you in and making you laugh at unexpected times, I drive for a living and had to pull over several times as it made me laugh, Susan Bennett did an amazing job on this book and the other two in the series
When I first listened to the sample I thought that there was no way I could listen to 8+ hours of Valley Girl, but after reading some of the reviews I went back and listened to Blood Sucking Fiends and You Suck first, and then it all made so much more sense. Event though there is a full synopsis at the beginning of the book, you really don't get the full flavour of Abby's character until you're introduced to her in the second book of the series. Then the Valley Girl thing isn't annoying, it's hilarious. I found myself walking around laughing out loud...people stare at you when you do that! Christopher Moore has done a great job developing the characters and bringing the whole story to a really satisfying conclusion, while still leaving the door open for more adventures if the mood takes him. Definitely worth the listen!
This is an engaging but weird book. I was shocked at the amount of profanity, but I couldn't stop listening. It is read well, and the sarcasm of the protagonist is fun. The storyline was a little hard to follow and absurd, but it was engaging and a bit of a naughty indulgence.
Awful, I have tried 2 xs to listen, It may be the narrator( I should have listened to a preview) but I cannot listen to more than 1/2 hour before I give up. Don't waste your $$ or points.
This is a great story. Too funny! I know people though I am crazy for laughing out loud. The narrator does an excellent job, she is as engaging as the story!
Moore is a great (and clever) writer, but it is the narration of Susan Bennett that makes this book truly awesome. It is laugh-out-loud funny.
WARNING: Listening to this book on your ipod at the gym, and laughing out loud, tends to freak out people around you.
Like okay, okay, so I'm like Mistress Of the Night Abby finally got to me and she's like doing the booty dance and I go okay okay I really got used to you and this third book was pretty awesome and I'm like cool dude listen to it.
I liked the book but it was a bit over the top on the vocal choice for the character Abby Normal. It was not so bad for the second book, You Suck, because she was not the primary character but Bite Me is written from her perspective for about 80% of the book. That being said, it did have a good story line and I would recommend it for those who like the writing styles of Christopher Moore.
I am a huge fan of Christopher Moore. Bloodsucking Fiends and You Suck are two of my favorites. This is not as good as either of the first two books in the story line. If I weren't already attached to the emperor and his man, the animals, Jodi and Tommy and Abby, their minion, I wouldn't have enjoyed it, but since I feel like they are buddies who I haven't seen in a while I wanted to hear the next chapter in their lives. If you are already a fan, buy the audiobook and don't expect too much. Its interesting enough and we already know Moore tends to be a little off the wall, and his characters have irritating silly Cali accents. If you didn't love the first two books, dont bother with this one.
