OK, I know some of you don't want to "fall" for the humor, but if you'll let yourself go, this book is SO funny. NOT every book is a documen..Show More »tary. If all books were all true, we'd be....non-existent. Give it a try. So clever. So funny. Many laugh-out-loud moments, as many others have said. Very engaging, I listened to it all as quickly as feasible. Enjoyable, and will listen to the others in the same series soon. Narrator SUSAN BENNETT IS AWESOME, and should be booked for work her entire career! She MORE than made it great. Loved her, and she brought more mental visions with the words than expected.
Am I right, people that've heard this?
Loved it, and I listen to books ALL day long, and I love horror. Even though this wasn't scary per se, it dealt with those ideas, which were more than enough for a good time. You like funny? You like vampires? Get this book. DON'T expect Lestat. Though......
I'm not at all surprised to have enjoyed this yarn - Christopher Moore's twisted plots and California Speak dialogue is impossible to resist, even at ..Show More »its least inspired. What did surprise me was how much this book benefitted from being read aloud by Susan Bennett. The ease with which Ms. Bennett switches from one urban California accent to another is simply amazing. From Hispanic Cop to Goth Valley Girl to Chinese Granny Just Off The Boat to Jock Doofus to African-American MBA, you name it-Bennett can mimic it to perfection. This woman needs an exclusive contract to record ALL of Christopher Moore's works - nobody else can do him complete justice.
Very rarely do I believe anything in life is worthy a perfect score, however Bite Me has earned this exception. Christopher Moore is one of the great..Show More »est authors/story-tellers of all time and Bite Me is the epitome of his talent. Very rarely do you come across an author that possesses the talent to evoke our raw emotions, and even rarer in a fictional environment. And not to short change Susan Bennett as her incredible narrative talent and multiple voices most certainly helped bring this story to life.
I am a big proponent of not spoiling a story and therefore will limit my comments. Rest assured however, Bite Me and the two other books in this series (Blood Sucking Fiends and You Suck) are truly worthy of your time.
Bite Me does a superb job of tying-up the loose strings left after You Suck. I am in awe of Christopher Moore’s literary ability used to develop the characters over the course of these three novels. I can’t help but feel the same love, compassion and concern one might have for a non fictional character. I now truly understand the meaning (and emotions) of a bitter-sweet ending. Although I believe Bite Me will be the last chapter in this current saga, I do hope the author guy chooses to continue bringing back our favorite characters. Certainly the inspectors will be back and who can’t imagine the fun and troubles of Abby and Lilly. As I don’t want to spoil anything, I will only say that there are two other characters that I hope might find their way back.
Bottom line; read, re-read and then read again the three Christopher Moore vampire books (or should I say listen to).
