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.

Sick of all the sexy, serious modern vampires, I wanted to read about different vampires. Having read Moore's "A Dirty Job," I thought "Bloodsucking Fiends" would be just the book I needed. "A Dirty Job" was hilarious and had my laughing constantly. "Bloodsucking Fiends" didn't. Don't get me wrong, it had its moments, but it didn't live up to "A Dirty Job."

That being said, this is not about super-sexed fanged gods, so it did get that right. There was angst, but it was over groceries and turtles, not over the terrible burden of being a sparkling, immortal Adonis. The book had a light tone, so overall I suppose it's suitably different from most vampire stories these days, but it doesn't come close to the humor of "A Dirty Job"

Overall I enjoyed the book and the story line. I thought it was a little tough to get through but then there would be something humorous happening and I would be engrossed in it again. With the popularity of his books I was a little disappointed overall. Since I have another of his books on my TBR list I'll give him another try.

I like all the Christopher Moore books. This is not my favorite, but still a funny book worth reading.

While I have two friends that highly recommended this book and author to me, when I did finally read it, I admit I was rather disappointed by it. Moore does write decently and his comic timing is well done, but it simply didn't suck (pardon the pun) me in like I wanted or expected it to. Still, a decent read.

Pretty good book, overall. Parts of it were really funny, which helped get through the parts that seemed boring or that dragged on. But I'm still interested enough to read the follow up book to this one!

This was the first book that I had read by Christopher Moore. I really enjoyed it. I have already ordered the next book of this series titled "You Suck."

Imagine if Twilight had been written by a Frat boy lol, thats the way this book came across to me. I enjoyed it. Funny. Basic guy humor in alot of areas. I plan to read the rest of the series cant wait to see how the story plays out.

I love quirky vampire stories and this one was great. Very witty - right up there with Charlaine Harris' Sookie series. There is also a sequel to this book called "You Suck" by the same author.

Pretty good book though parts of it went off from the story to describe other characters that weren't really involved in the main plot line. Good to read for a quick fix.

Jody never asked to become a vampire. But when she wakes up under an alley dumpster with a badly burned arm, an aching beck, superhuman strenght, and a distinctly Nosferatuan thirst, she realizes the decision has been made for her.
Making the transition from the nine to five grind to an eternity of nocturnal prowlings is going to take some doing, howerver, and that's where C. Thomas Flood fits in. A would be Kerouac from Incontinence, Indiana, Tommy (to his friends) is biding his time night clerking and frozen turkey bowling in a San Fransico Safeway. But all that changes when a beautiful undead redheads walks through the door....and proceeds to rock Tommy's life, and afterlife, in ways he never imagined possible.
