This book was not what I thought it would be. The characters in the book are funny & the stuff that is said is classic. Can't wait to get another of his books.
If you are anything like me, then you can enjoy and appreciate a good vampire love story like this one! It is so witty I had many LOL'S at random moments....like in the grocery store and the Dr.s office. This is a great listen, I absolutely love this author and can't wait to listen to you suck!
This book is very funny, I enjoyed all the outlandish characters. Had to purches the second book after i was done listening. By You Suck after listening!
Many reviews said this was very funny which was why I got it (love vampire stories and laughing). While the story was very good and somewhat funny, I thought I would laugh more. However, I liked it enough to buy the next one in the series (You Suck) and THAT I laughed out loud throughout the book. Love Christoper Moore now and have read almost all of his books (Dirty Job is hysterical too).
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.
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.
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!
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).
