Hell, I might read another of his, that’s how good his pacing is.

Making the transition from the nine-to-five grind to an eternity of nocturnal prowlings is going to take some fiensd, however, and that’s where C. He is supported by “his men,” who turn out to be two dogs equipped to do battle against the “vicious, murdering fiend who has been stalking his City. The characterization, relationship between, and dialogue of the two homicide detective partners feels trite, stereotypical, nothing fresh here!

The book is garnished with a host of strange characters, pornographic Disney tattoos, attempted fienrs, and Hiaasenesque humor. It’s not going to hold up for, sa This reminded me of the campy vampire movies I loved as a kid: Christopher Moore has an amazing imagination. I love his books and this was no exception. Then I thought perhaps i am not adult enough to understand the humour and so i decided to give it a bit time and I guess that loev out to be a good decision as the book started slowly but eventually cracking me up in between with simple unsuspecting funny lines and circumstances and especially with its share of goofy characters.

Jody is attacked walking home from work and wakes up the next evening disheveled, under a dumpster, with one burned hand, and with a load of cash in a paper bag. Some unseen force, a guiding hand of fate, was preventing me from reading it.

But there is this weird thing going around in the book where people are popping in between with their own stories and there is no break from one scene to other and this majorly happens from the second part of the book. As near as I can tell, there wasn’t a point.


Which, oddly enough, makes me feel old and humorless. S an easy read. Very funny vampire novel. What’s the Name o It was as if he was mocking the sub-genre of vampire novels by his one-dimensional characters and thin plot. He is 19 and almost a virgin. Moore’s novels typically involve conflicted everyman characters suddenly struggling through supernatural or extraordinary circumstances.

The crowd easily tripled the normal quantity of attendees for that sort of event.

May 08, sj rated it liked it Shelves: Thomas Flood lands in the city by the Bay, fresh from the farming fields of Indiana, determined to write a great American novel. A young woman Jody gets turned into a vampire, and she’s left alone with tons of cash. The characters, especially the two main characters Jody and Tommy, were truly unlikable.

From the five Wongs who want to marry Tommy for their American citizenship, Scott and Zelda the turtles that Tommy saved from becoming dinner, Jody’s mother, the Emperor of San Francisco, the Animals w Safeway, the police homicide detectives, even the elusive vampire sire, all meld together in a funny, sometimes hysterical story. Life, unfortunately, for Thomas can not all be about sex.
