This ably narrated book captures the highs and lows, the fantasies (of perception and imagination), and the mindset of the male adolescent. No matter its temporal or socioeconomic setting, the novel will strike a chord with any man over 21 and any woman with brothers or sons in that difficult age.
As far as vampire stories go, this one isn't very good. For chick porn, I'm sure it's excellent. The story is driven by predictable formulaic plot elements, and offers nothing new to the genre. The most unusual aspect of the story, from my standpoint, is that it was one of the only ones I've ever encountered that was far more interesting at the beginning than at the end - in fact, it's the first I've quit listening to when within 1.5 hours of the end.
