Plight of the Toothless Vampire | [Steve Stillwell]

Plight of the Toothless Vampire

Chester Watkins is not an ordinary person. He's a student of the old school with the tenacity of a bulldog. This cagey senior citizen funds himself plunged into an underground world where only the strong survive. Ravaged to death by a rogue vampire, this determined grandpa set out on a quest to apprehend his killer, and turn an immortal organization upside down. Unable to regenerate any teeth and looked upon with contempt by his enemies, his opposition makes the foolish mistake of underestimating his most powerful ability of all...his incredible mind.

    "Did not live up to the Potential for me"

    After seeing the title, and reading the pop up from scrolling over the book, I thought I had to read this book. The story was ok, but there are just too many leaps of faith that seem too convenient. The back story on the main character is weak and s=does not explain why he is able to make quick judgements on others and make great and trustworthy friends quickly. There is nothing in the story to explain or show why he can be so forgiving and so understanding. There are also issues of minor characters being too conveniently and easily overcome, and the villains were inconsistent in how they felt with the bodies afterwards compared to how they dealt with bodies of previous victims. One of the lessor antagonists (deputy sheriff) is distant, distracted, and unconcerned during an interview with the media about crimes in his jurisdiction, how would he achieve his current position and how would he have a chance at all of being elected sheriff with his arrogant and unconcerned attitude without a backstory explaining why he can blow off the media and still have a career. I did enjoy the story, but I think the unjustified leaps of faith that always pay off are unjustified and unexplained, and it bothers me that the main character can make no mistakes. It makes the story seem too easy and convenient.

    "First Audible purchase I've regretted"

    This is the first item I've regretted buying from Audible. I loved the idea of an elderley (rather than ancient) vampire who outsmarts those around him through his years of experience rather than supernatural power and strength. Instead, we're introduced to a horrible old man who mourns the inconvenience of his wife dying (which he was responsible for) more than her actual death, who verbally abuses people for his own amusement and who accepts the kindness of total strangers as his due since his sense of entitlement is surpassed only by his sense of superiority to the young, old, females, other races, unlucky and better off.

    With an utterley unsympathetic main character, a poorly driven storyline with inexplicable lapses and leaps, I can only recommend you skip this one.
