Tonia Brown brings you three unusual vampire tales.
1. Getting Lucky: Frank Kirtz is the unluckiest man alive, for good reason.
2. Sunshine: Nick picks the wrong hippie to feed from and spends the night tripping at Woodstock.
3. Sweet Tooth: Bernie gets a late night visitor to his dental office.
Any additional comments?
I have received this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.
At the beginning of this book we are warned that this is not the typical vampires story, since Brown affirms she is not a vampire person. Neither am I, so I was curious to see her take on vampire stories. This book is composed by three short stories about vampires with a different take. The first is about how a vampire has influenced the luck of a person; the second is about a hippy vampire drinking blood full of acid; and the third is about a vampire with a sweet tooth and the consequences of it.
It was an easy listen with some humor in it. The stories I liked most were the first and the third. The first could have been a draft of a longer book. And even if I am not into vampire stories, I would have listened to it. The second was too mystic for me. The vampire was reflecting about the meaning of life for a vampire, and I had troubles to really connect to it. The third was so absurd that it made me laugh a lot.
Jack de Golia's narration was superb, very expressive and clear, doing a great interpretation of all the characters and giving them all different voices. I would love to listen to more audiobooks narrated by de Golia.
I think this book could be enjoyed not only by horror fans since it is very different from the regular vampire tale. Its length makes it also ideal if you want a quick listen.

the three stories were good. a little short for me, but I usually love the long series or 10 plus hour books. the longer they are the more captivated by the characters you get. but this was fun, and quick. my favorite was the dentist one (last one), funny and entertaining. I would recommend it.
