Publisher's Summary

"The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge, shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public. Whoa. And this is a love story? Yup.

"‘Cept there’s no whining. See, while some lovers were born to run, Jody and Tommy were born to bite. Well, reborn, that is, now that they're vampires. Good thing theirs is an undying love, since their Goth Girl Friday, Abby Normal, imprisoned them in a bronze statue. Abby wants to be a blood sucking fiend, too, but right now she’s really busy with other stuff, like breaking in a pair of red vinyl thigh-high Skankenstein® platform boots and wrangling her Ph.D.-candidate boyfriend, Steve (the love monkey). And then there’s that vampire cat Chet, who’s getting bigger and smarter—and thirstier—by the minute. Abby thought she and Steve could handle the kitty cat on their own, mais non."

Before you can say “OMG! WTF?” Tommy and Jody are sprung from captivity, and join forces with Abby, Steve, the frozen-turkey-bowling Safeway crew, the Emperor of San Francisco and his trusty dogs Lazarus and Bummer, Abby’s gay Goth friend Jared, and SF’s finest Cavuto and Rivera to hunt big cat and save the city. And that’s when the fun really begins.

    "Best I've Ever Heard"

    I love Christopher Moore and have read or listened to all of his books. I'm so glad that I got this one on audiobook! The narrator can make or break the story, and whoever chooses Christopher Moore's narrators does an outstanding job of choosing people who can capture the voice and tone of his writing. With Bite Me, his team has outdone themselves. This is, by far, the most enjoyable audiobook experience I have ever had. It's probably the first time that I actually can't imagine the written word being more enjoyable than the spoken word, although I'll still probably buy the book to complete my Christopher Moore collection.

    Christopher Moore is hysterical, and every character is well developed and rings true, and Susan Bennett is brilliant. I agree with the reviewer who said that if you don't enjoy this, you have no sense of humor.

    I only wish that the author wrote faster. I hate waiting for his next book to come out. I'm also going to look for other books narrated by Susan Bennett.

    "Brilliantly read and entertaining"

    In Christopher Moore style you get an outrageous and laugh out loud book. The narration of this book is absolutely incredible, in fact the best I've ever heard for an audio book! Susan Bennett delivers a range of character voices that are distinct and absolutely believable from the valley girl to the Rasta man all read with exactly the kind of humour and pace the book required. Very enjoyable.

    "A New Twist On Vampires"

    I really enjoyed the unusual storyline of this book. But Abby Normal makes the book! I absolutely loved her! I laughed through the whole thing and started looking at the first 2 books in this series. Only one of them seem to have Abby in them, but I plan to buy both anyway.

    "Abby Normal rocks!"

    This has to be the funniest thing I have ever heard! First, the content is hilarious & I found myself laughing out loud at the most inopportune moments (walking down the isle at the local grocery store, laughing hysterically- alone- does tend to attract some strange looks...) But, the narration is what makes this downright crazy and unforgettable!! I am way too old to be talking like Abby, but am finding myself using key phrases of hers, much to the dismay of my teenager lol. This has to be the best $12 I've ever spent on entertainment! I can't wait to pick up more Christopher Moore titles & pray I can get another Abby Normal fix!!

    "Spectacular Listen!"

    Christopher Moore's story is hysterically funny and entertaining from beginning to end. Susan Bennett is a fantastic narrator. The combination is an amazing audio book. I can only hope there are more stories to come featuring these characters. Three simply aren't enough!

    "Hilarious in parts"

    Bite Me, by Christopher Moore
    'Kay, so. (which is how Abby Normal, teenage minion and aspiring Mistress of the Greater Bay Area Night, begins nearly every entry in her journal). The book is second or third in a series of San Fran vampire novels Moore is continuing, and features said vampires, beleaguered city cops, the night re-stocking crew of the Marina Safeway grocery store, the Emperor of San Francisco (a batty but dignified homeless man known to everyone in the city) and his two dogs, plus Abby and her boyfriend Steven "Fu Dog" Wong, an Asian tech geek working on his Master's Degree in Biotech at Berkeley while devising vampire-killing devices in his spare time. New in this entry to the series: killer vampire kitties weighing 65 pounds.

    This is a hilarious entry in the series, mostly because Moore is at his strongest as a writer, and funniest, when he writes in first person. The writing is really uneven, because he keeps switching from first-person Abby (whose diary entries are so damned authentic in their silly, fashion-obsessed, OMG, WTF, teenage girl voice that I wonder where this 45ish male author picked UP this stuff), to third person when the scenes switch away from Abby to action involving other characters in other parts of the city.

    Still, I've enjoyed the hell out of it, and am ROTFLMAO, as Abby would say.

    "Loved it"

    Susan Bennett (the narrator) is a joy to listen to, my only complaint is, the book and reading we SO enjoyable, I finished it in two sittings. I love how Moore brings in characters from other books, you never know who you're going to see again!

    "A slow start"

    I love Christopher Moore's books."Lamb" is one of my all time favorites.This book is just as enjoyable.At first the "valley girl" narration put me off,but once the storytelling got going it was great fun.Highly recommended.

    "Melancholy Smile"

    Don't want to give anything away, but I remembered some sadness when reading the book when it first came out, & now I'm remembering why. 'Nuff said about that.

    Another excellent book by Christopher Moore, a favorite author. But this time I also want to give major props to Susan Bennett, who inhabits each character so originally & with style & charm. As Jodi, I fell in love (& lust) with her, as The Emperor, I wanted to buy her and "the men" a sub sandwich and something to drink, as Abby, I wanted to wring her neck & wrap her in a bear hug in equal parts, and it goes on & on. Audible sometimes errs when recording series by changing narrators, & I'm so grateful Ms Bennett was able to continue throughout all three books. She grew on me as much as the characters. Well done to Mr Moore, Ms Bennett, & Audible!

    "Best Audiobook ever recorded"

    Christopher Moore is a superb story teller with a wickedly good humor and Susan Bennett rocks the stripy socks off this book. This is audiobook perfection.
    The whole SF Vamp trilogy is fantastic, but Abby Normal is a cherry on top of this delectable tale.
