From humorist Christopher Moore comes a supernatural comedy that's as sweet and salty as fresh blood- or so I suppose. Breaking the stereotypical vampire-angst, Moore's characters tackle the more practical questions of vampirehood, such as how do I get my car out of impound or how long can I be kept in deep-freeze?

The story follows newly-turned vampire Jody, and her aspiring-writer minion C. Thomas Flood (aka Tommy, turkey bowler extraordinaire) as they adjust to their respective new lifestyles in San Francisco and try to defeat the murderous unknown vampire who changed Jody.

Populated by a remarkable cast of supporting characters, from Tommy's Magnificent Seven subordinates at the local supermarket to Jody's judgmental, Stanford alum mother, Bloodsucking Fiends is funny, exciting and touching. Moore has a brilliant talent for combining adventure, humor, horror and romance without making any one element seem forced or out of place.

Does it get any better than this book? I loved it (after the first very confusing chapter) for it's humor and portrayal of REAL, dumb people.

A light and funny vampire novel....
Tommy's a teenager from Indiana, fresh off the bus to the big city, full of dreams of being a great writer... Jody's a twenty-six year old with a dead-end job and a bad relationship. But when a violent and mysterious nighttime attack leaves Jody as a vampire - but with a ton of cash - the first thing she realizes is that she'll need someone who can get around in the daytime to manage her affairs. Impressionable Tommy seems like just the right candidate. But Tommy begins to realize that a disconcerting number of corpses seem to be turning up in the vicinity of his new girlfriend...

Fun, but remarkable for its vivid depiction of its setting, San Francisco - it really made me want to go back and visit the city again!

A funny take on vampires. Jody is ambushed and becomes a vampire, but really needs some help with things that she needs to get done during the day. Enter C. Thomas Flood, a night-time grocery store worker and part-time writer. The two get caught up in a series of murders and to solve them, they will have to rely on a homeless man named the Emperor, his armor wearing dogs, and two detectives.

An entertaining way to pass the time.

A good quick read. You won't walk away from this having found the secret of life, but it's worth a chuckle or two. I liked it enough to read the sequel.
