There are times when puns and word play is good. This book is so filled this this stuff that it is distracting. After 50 pages, I was so sick of it all that I couldn't find a plot line any more and tossed this book aside in frustration. I did not finish this book.
Paranormal lite - but corny and cliched along with it. The humor is centered around puns using modern movie references, even though the story is set in the 1800's. This isn't in the juvenile fiction area, but it probably should be.
Enjoyed this one more than the first, but the continual references to 20th century pop culture really jarred me out of the story. (eg. Gellar Buffyton; her grandfather staking those famous vampires, Lon, Lee and Langella; and no less than eight James Bond movie titles).
It's rare when I don't finish a book. But when a book seems as if it were written by a 13 year old (and not a particularly bright one) it is time to give up. The writing was sophomoric, corny, trite and... gee ... uninteresting? If I were forced to finish it I'd have to put a stake through my own heart.
