Publisher's Summary

Christopher Moore is a New York Times best-selling author whose offbeat novels combine comedy and the supernatural.

A striking red-head, 20-something Jody is attacked and transformed into a vampire while walking home one night in downtown San Francisco. Befriending 19-year-old Tommy, Jody tries to understand her new undead life, but trouble finds her when the cops start suspecting Tommy of being a local bloodsucking serial killer.

    Story
    "Typical Vamp Story meets Moore's brand of comedy"
    If you could sum up Bloodsucking Fiends in three words, what would they be?

    Gothic, Funny, Sarcastic


    What other book might you compare Bloodsucking Fiends to and why?

    Interview With a Vampire meets Zany Comedy with a good dose of Great (well-defined) characters mixed in.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Bennett – was your favorite?

    C. Thomas Flood, despite the fact that C means absolutely nothing. His oung naivety mixed with his good heart and sense of sarcasm come together to create a great character.

    Jodi, however, is also a great character for completely different reasons. She's a very strong female lead that grew upon me more nad more as the boook went on.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Quite a few moments made me laugh out loud.

    The way the book ends, however, absolutely shocked me. Not what happens to flood, rather what Flood does to Jodi in order to keep her... That part cracked me up and kind of disturbed me...


    Any additional comments?

    Blood Sucking Fiends doesn't add any real originality to the Vampire story as far as Vampire stories go. BUT, this book is squarely a situational comedy more than it is a vampire story. The Vampire story simply serves as a fram in which to introduce these great characters, crazy situations, and laugh out loud moments.

    If you're in the mood for some "light" listening that won't make you think too much, but will keep you smiling, look no further.

    "This series is laugh out loud funny."
    What did you love best about Bloodsucking Fiends?

    I loved every thing. It is just so funny. Any time I feel like crap I start listening to this book and I am back to rights within 10 minutes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bloodsucking Fiends?

    The guys turkey bowling on night shift at the Safeway store.


    What about Susan Bennett???s performance did you like?

    She is fantastic, perfect for this book. She made this book shine.


    If you could rename Bloodsucking Fiends, what would you call it?

    I woke up under a dumpster, WTF!


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it you will love it.

    "One of My Favorite Series"

    I must say that when I need a break and want a good laugh, I listen to this series. Christopher Moore is very funny. I don't listen to very many books more than once but this is one exception for me.

    Story
    "surprisingly good"

    After reading the reviews and listening to the sample I thought this would be a decent light read. The story was fairly entertaining, and the ending was very funny - but I really enjoyed the character development. Jody is not your typical vampire and Flood is hard to pin down, but very silly and endearing. I had a little trouble with the reader - a few times not using the right character voice - but she was decent.
    This is not one of my most favorite listens, but definitely near the top and worth listening to again.

    I'm actually a day old tart, filled with maple custard. Perhaps, this reads as a rational introduction to others, and you are deliberately misreading it, because, come on, maple custard.

    "Very convincing characters!"

    Loved it! Well rounded atypical characters! There's a significant underlying morality to the novel, which doesn't slap you in the face. You can absorb it, or just set your brain to cruise control and appreciate the masterly writing. Not the average cheesy man with eye lashes and defined calves that does everything [verb]ly, and woman fawning on things in a slipshod bodice, type of romance. More realistic, and very funny!

    Story
    "Good but not his best"

    I generally like Christopher Moore's books, but this one just fell a little flat. Are some very funny moments and some sad moments, but it just did not hold my attention as well as most. Partly I think it was the narrator, hence the lower performance score.

    "Entertaining on a school-yard level"

    This is Moore. Don't listen to his books back to back, and you'll enjoy then ...::wincing:: Moore.

    He used a quill filled with acerbic ink to pen his stories. If you are a fan of sarcastic wit and humor so dry it leaves you looking for the attached desiccation packet, then saddle up boys and girls! He had me laughing out loud in some places (always a little disconcerting in public places) and it was a great break from more serious genera. I recommend it for a mental palate cleanser.

    "Read Anything by this guy!"

    This is by far my favorite author, nothing reads like Christopher Moore. Be careful if you listen to this while driving people will think you are crazy. You may not be able to get away with listening to this at work because you will be laughing hard. This entire series is great! Actually anything this guy write is funny even his facebook post are crazy.

    "Leaves you wanting more... get all 3 books"

    This is one of the funniest books I've read in a long time.. I absolutely enjoyed every minute... don't waste time buying each book separately. Download them all now: Bloodsucking Fiends, Bite Me and You suck; that way you will not have to waste a minute getting to the next one. Very very enjoyable. Highly recommend. Also, loved the SF Bay Area setting.

    "Shoot Me"

    Had to make myself read through to chapter 3, worst ever! It's all over the place with bad humor, too silly for me.
