    "Good, but not great"

    I enjoyed this book, but not as much as Fool, Lamb, or Dirty Job. It's a lot of fun, but not as complete as the others. The narration is good, and it is still a fun take on the standard Vampire story. Moore has never let me down, and this book doesn't, but I put it a notch below his better work.

    "Delightgful"

    The story (while light) is hilarious and thoroughly enjoyable. The narrator (Susan Bennett) is spectacular - the pacing is perfect, and she creates a distinct, authentic voice for each of the many, many characters. I can only hope that there are many books available from her in the future. For those with a soft spot in their hearts for San Fransisco, the city plays an important supporting character.

    "If you want something light..."

    This is a good story if you want something easy to read without any thought required. I like Moore's wacky style as it gives you something out-of-the-ordinary to read, which is a nice change. I didn't like the narrator, hated the way he did the voice of Tommy for some reason. Got a few laughs, which is always nice in a story!

    "Fun"

    The other reviews warn you: be prepared for a contemporary sexy vampire and her boyfriend, recently arrived from Indiana. The story is fun and exciting. The narrator is superb. I love her voice; her attitude. Also read You Suck by C. Moore (same narrator).

    "What a disappointment"

    I have never written a review here before, but this book was so bad I felt compelled to write. I've read Christopher Moore books before and they were funny and light, and really good. This book is not one of those. It is not only not funny, but it's BORING. I couldn't get into the story at all and I don't think I ever will bother to finish it. Truly disappointing. Don't waste your time or money.

    "Review of Bloodsucking Fiends"

    I like Christopher Moore, love his humor and his characters. Hated the ending of this one. Not satisfying. Reader not bad, not great, but not a distraction.

    "so disappointing"

    this is one that was recommended to me funny. i listened to it and i have never rooted so much for the bad guy to just to kill the morons. they reminded me of the people in horror movies that are so stupid that viewers are waiting and rooting for them to be killed, while knowing that the idiots always seem to survive. it was funny at many points but i was so annoyed and kept going really through all the moments when the main characters did stupid things. i only finished the book because i was hoping that one of the two main characters was killed off. i think it would have been a better book if they weren't such morons.

    "Not his best book..."

    I was disappointed in this book, and I have not gone on to continue the series, although I may still do so at some point. Christopher Moore is one of my favorite authors and I find him to be a very intelligent and thoughtful writer. I appreciate that his books are filled with the ridiculous and yet still make me think an awful lot about what I've read and what he is 'really' trying to say.
    This book to me was filled with unnecessary crudeness and the plot was flimsy. There was a definite point A to point B feel and that frustrated me. I think I'm not describing it very well, but what I'm trying to say is that this book completely lacked the depth of his other stories. It was like he was trying to jump on the Vampire bandwagon or something (although tbh I'm not sure how much of a Vampire bandwagon there was in 1995).

    Anyway. This will not stop me from reading his other books, even if it did stop me from finishing the rest of this series.

    "Not his best but good...left me wanting moore"

    I haven't read all of Christopher Moore's books, but I have read a few. Perhaps my standards were too high after Lamb and Sacre Bleu. This book felt a little amateurish. At times I wanted to turn it off because I felt like I was listening to a cheesy romance novel. You know, with a picture of Fabio on the front. After I finished listening to it, and knowing this was the first of a 3 book series, I was curious where he would take the story. I'm glad I continued on. The next book is better, and the one after that is even better. It's interesting to listen to his writing style change and grow over time.

    If you're listening to this book, I recommend getting the other two as well. The characters are much more interesting and developed in the other books than in this one.

    Also, this is the best narrator I've ever heard. I would listen to books I normally would have no interest in as long as she's the narrator.
