Bite Me (Bloodsucking Fiends, Bk 3) (Larger Print)
Bite Me - Bloodsucking Fiends, Bk 3 - Larger Print Author:Christopher Moore A vampire cat is stalking San Francisco in Moore’s serviceable latest comic horror adventure (after You Suck), and the only humans who can take him down are goth girl Abby Normal and her brainiac boyfriend, Stephen “Foo Dog” Wong. They, in turn, call upon Abby’s masters, vampiric lovers Jody and Tommy, who were on the ver... more »ge of breaking up until Abby decided to bronze them posed as Rodin’s The Kiss. Also in pursuit of the vampire cat and his minions are the Animals, the night stock crew at the Marina Safeway who hunt vampires in their spare time; a lunatic homeless man who calls himself the “Emperor of San Francisco”; a Japanese printmaker who wields a mean sword; and homicide detectives Rivera and Cavuto.
Things become even more complicated with the arrival of three ancient vampires intent on getting some payback. The narrative could use trimming, and much of the humor seems recycled from Moore’s previous vampire tomes, though this won’t matter to the legions of fans who crave Moore’s trademark low horror and high camp.

The 3rd installment in the adventures of Jody and Tommy, your favorite bloodsucking fiends, is a marked fall-off from the first two. That's not to say it isn't worth reading. Fans of Christopher Moore's characters and imaginative storytelling will find "Bite Me" to be familiarly unfamiliar territory. But I think that the stakes of the novel are somewhat lost over the many, many intertwining plot lines.
