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.

©2007 Christopher Moore; (P)2007 HarperCollins Publishers

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)

    "Classic"

    The first book I listened to by Moore was "A Dirty Job." The dry wit and sarcasim are hilarious, and also creative in the hands of Moore. "You Suck" was another great work by Moore, and the use of recurring characters in each story gives a little nod to the listeners/readers who enjoy his work. I was wondering if Bennet would do as good a job as the last narrator, and I wasn't disappointed. Fast and fun to listen to, I give a thumbs up. If you like this, then also try the lamb, which is probably the funniest book I've listened to in a long time.

    "The fifth star is for the narrator"

    Great book, but I can't imagine having enjoyed it quite as much without the narrator's talented portrayal of the characters. Every character had its own nuanced voice.

    Funny characters, amusing story line, fantastic dialogue. I wish I had realized that it was a sequel, though, because I hate reading series books out of order. Nevertheless, I fully enjoyed this book even without having read the predecessor.

    "You suck doesn't suck!"

    I loved this book! The characters were funny and quirky in addition to being vampires and witches. I loved how they worked together and how they were scared of each other. The addition of Abbey Normal was genuis! I really enjoyed the narrators rendition of this lovable bubbly goth chick. I want more books with Abbey Normal!!

    "Amusing story, but..."

    This is an amusing story, but nothing much really happens in it. I was not initially aware that this was a sequel to another book, and I kept feeling like I had jumped into the middle of the story. The narrator is very good though, and may be what makes the book worth listening to. Be aware that the book has some R-rated content in it.

    "Snide romp through SanFran"

    With some crossover references to his other novels (A Dirty Job), the author fills in some non-sequiters that might have left you scratching your head. There's really no "bad guys" here, and the story is more about a bunch of wacked out dudes blowing their windfall (and minds) in Vegas, and their buddy coming to grips with becoming a vampire in SanFran.

    Light fare, with some funny moments - especially the author's voice in the memoirs of a teen goth chick.

    "More Abby, please!!!"

    Please, Christopher Moore, if you read these reviews at all, please, please write a book just around Abby Normal. She is now one of my all-time favorite book characters. You Suck really takes off with her diary entries, and I found myself waiting with anticipation for the words "Being the Chronicles of Abby Normal". I'm so glad I listened instead of reading it - part of the reason I enjoyed Abby so much was the life the narrator gave to her through Christopher Moore's words. The perky goth girl makes for laugh out loud funny stuff! I would recommend reading Bloodsucking Fiends first if you can, as it does set-up the story a little better. it's just too bad Abby's not in it though.

    "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.
