I downloaded this listen in preparation for a weekend trip back to San Francisco, my adopted home town. It was perfect--a great guide around the locations and freaks that make SF the best city in our country. You Suck is even funnier than Bloodsucking Fiends because of the addition of a new character, Abby Normal, a teenage-age goth turned giddy minion. Susan Bennett's readings of Abby Normal's journal entries made me laugh out loud every time.
I'm hoping that Christopher's next announced book, Bite Me, slated for 2010 is a part III and is also read by Susan Bennett.
Because this is a character-driven book and the characters grow on you with exposure, I recommend reading Bloodsucking Fiends before starting on You Suck. You'll then welcome The Emporor and The Animals back rather than be annoyed by their craziness.
I've listened to over 200 Audible books. My favorites are generally novels with an emotional core. This is my favorite of all. When someone is just starting out with recorded books, I recommend this one because it has a compelling story with a fantastic reader.
I felt like the young protagist was right there telling me her fantastic story, wanting and succeeding in make me laugh and cry.
This book was a riot. I'm the furthest thing from a political junky, but found this look at DC hi-jinks great fun. At the same time, the book really makes you think about the government mortgaging our future, agism and messaging to the masses.
