Publisher's Summary

"You bitch, you killed me. You suck!"

Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks.

Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, the woman of his dreams, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

For some couples, the whole biting-and-blood thing would have been a deal breaker. But Tommy and Jody are in love, and they vow to work through their issues. Like how much Jody should teach Tommy about his new superpowers (and how much he needs to learn on his own). Plus there's Tommy's cute new minion, 16-year-old goth girl Abby Normal. (Well, someone has to run errands during daylight hours!)

Making the relationship work, however, is the least of Jody and Tommy's problems. Word has it that the vampire who nibbled on Jody wasn't supposed to be recruiting any new members into the club. Even worse, Tommy's erstwhile turkey-bowling pals are out to get him, at the urging of a blue-dyed Las Vegas call-girl named (duh) Blue.

And that really sucks.

Love in vein: listen to more vampire fiction.

What the Critics Say

"A cheerfully perverse, gut-busting tale of young vampires in love....Moore writes with the jittery energy of a brilliant, charming class clown, mixing sex and gore and a potty mouth with a goofy-sweet sensibility to deliver laughs on nearly every page." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Excellent story, incredible narration"

    THis novel was hilariously entertaining. Thet storeline is quick moving and keeps you interested all the way through.

    Warning though: I did not realize this was a sequel to Bloodsucking Fiends. You have no problem understanding the story, as the previous book is recapped here and there, but it would've been nice to have read Bloodsucking Fiends before hand.

    The narration was incredible. Normally I do not like female narrators, but this one hits the various voices perfectly. Especially the voice of Abby Normal, little goth girl, who is the shining star of this novel. Abby completely makes the novel, and narrator protrays her perfectly.

    "Dissapointed"

    After reading "It's a Dirty Job", I couldn't wait to get my hands, or ears should I say, on another Christopher Moore's tales of fantasy mixed with real life. But frankly, You Suck, really did live up to it's title. At first it really gets you involved but slowly dribbles and goes nowhere ....so I used it to help me sleep.

    "Funny"

    I listened to this in the car on a very long drive. It really made the time fly by. I found myself laughing out loud on more than one occasion. The narrator did an excellent job with the character's voices, you knew exactly who was saying what.
    I enjoyed it very much.

    "It's OK"

    Overall, I thought this was a great book. The author definately has a way of making you laugh outloud with his type of humor. I didn't like the ending because I thought it was too abrupt, and I thought that it should have been a little longer in length. I have listened to his other books, and this was the first one that I thought ended too soon, and not at all what I thought it would be. I won't give the ending away if you want to read it, but it will leave you asking "what?"

    "TOO FUNNY!!"

    I am a big fan of vampire genre. This book was the funniest vampire story I have ever read! I don't usually read vampire stories to get a good laugh, but this is exactly what you will do! The narrarator is great and the characters are so likable, I love Abby, she cracks me up! If you want a good story and a good laugh, then you are in the right place!!

    "Funny, but trouble ending book"

    Although the book is very funny, with references and asides that will keep you laughing on almost every page...I mean, who can't love the vision of Chester, the giant naked cat?..it is also uneven. The relationship between the two main characters is sort of unbelievable, and you never get a real feel for the city, which should be a character in itself. Still, all that said, worth a listen. Ok to buy without having read the first book.

    "Doesn't Suck at all"

    This is a great read. It is funny, ironic and has the same feel as the other Christopher Moore books. Be aware it is a sequel to Bloodsucking Fiends. (Not available on Audiobook $$%#&()%*(%%#@) but it does stand alone. I listened to it and am now reading BS Fiends. I tend not to enjoy books where I don't like any of the characters. This is not a problem with this (or any of C. Moore's books) You instantly develop a rapport with Jody, Tommy, and the other characters. You like them and they become human....well inhuman :-)

    I recommend this book highly. Also, the other books availabel on Audio, The Stupidest Angel, and A Dirty Job

    "Very amusing"

    If you are easily shocked by potty mouth language, this book is not for you. However, if you enjoyed Moon Unit Zappa's one claim to fame and Leslie Nielson's take on vampires...mixed somehow with "Return of the Living Dead" (1980s version) you are on the right track. There were several laugh out loud moments.

    "good listen"

    If you liked the author's "A Dirty Job", then you will love this book. The narrator is wonderful. I listened to this on vacation and I could not stop laughing. Many of the characters in "A Dirty Job" show up in this novel...they just have bit roles, but I enjoyed the way they were incorportated into the plot.
