Guest Review: Bloodsucking Fiends


reviewed by Alyssa

Everyone seems to love Christopher Moore novels – I haven’t read any of his books but want to thank Alyssa for her guest review.

Jody wakes up one day to find herself disheveled, bruised...and a vampire. How she transitions from a nine-to-five working drudge to a creature of the night makes for a great new take on an old genre.

The back of this book has a lot of reviews that say it is "laugh out loud funny." I didn't find myself laughing out loud but the book is very humorous. Moore has a light writing style that can give the wrong impression of a book that will not be well written--not so. The writing style is perfect to the story Moore is telling. I enjoyed it so much that I have already purchased the follow up, "You Suck."

Type: Fiction, 290 pages, Trade paperback

Synopsis:
Jody never asked to become a vampire. But when she wakes up under an alley Dumpster with a badly burned arm, an aching back, superhuman strength, 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, however, 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 Francisco Safeway. But all that changes when a beautiful undead redhead walks through the door...and proceeds to rock Tommy's life -- and afterlife -- in ways he never thought possible.
