Bloodsucking Fiends | Christopher Moore
This is a funny book, as are all of Moore’s books and quirky as usual. The saving grace was The Emperor and his dogs. Let’s say he was such a ass than when I asked him to sign a book, instead he just hauled off and kicked me in my privatest of personal places. You’ll be reading along and then Moore will write something so silly or goofy or unexpected that you just have to laugh out loud.
Some authors can pull it off and some fall flat.
Moore’s novels typically involve conflicted everyman characters suddenly struggling through supernatural or extraordinary circumstances. Jody never asked to become a vampire. Tommy is the leader of a gang of oddball supermarket shelf-stackers. A wannabe writer from Incontinence, Indiana, Tommy is new in town and having a hard time getting adjusted to life in the Big City I should admit upfront that I’m suffering from a severe case of vampire fatigue; that, coupled with disdain for Christopher Moore based on the only other book of his that I read, means that there really bloldsucking no chance in the world that I was going to enjoy this book, and in fact should never have read it.
Life, unfortunately, for Thomas can not all be about sex.
It’s an easy read. And Tommy, who’s struck by her beauty and vampirish panache, is an all-too-willing victim. He’s a fun, irreverent, creative writer whose sense of humor comes through on every page. No clues in the prose left me sometimes scratching my head, you know, like reading an Emily Dickinson poem. Explore the Home Gift Guide.
Loved him and every scene that they were in. Maybe I’ll be in a better mood the next time I try his work. But all that changes when a beautiful undead redhead walks through the door First, I really like Christopher Moore and think that he is hilarious, which is something sadly lacking in most of the stuff I read.
She gets up, tossing the dumpster right across the alley. I would recommend this book to people who are looking for some comic relief to their vampire reading lists. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it.
I decided to read something light. Let’s say he Okay, let’s cut right to the chase here. If you’re going to read one of his books, I recommend Lamb: She is a vampire, which when she tells him is a little unsettling, but then she has more sex with him.
Except for the whole vampire thing, obviously. So, my patience wears thin, even for a fellow Wisconsin native like Rothfuss. That one in particular is a double edged sword and you don’t quite know how to feel about it. She needs a ‘Renfield’ to take care of daylight stuff and he needs to have his heart broken to help his writing.
Gorgeous year-old Transamerica claims clerk Jody inexplicably never given a surname is habitually unlucky in love until the night she’s attacked by a vampire on her way home from work.
She figured out a lot on her own. Like all of Moore’s novels I have read, this one is hilarious. Oh, Tommy just doesn’t understand women hochachachacha If you have the option to read in order, though, I would recommend it.
It combines elements of the supernatural and of the romance novel. The Emperor and The Animals are relatively well developed too and they even have their emotional high points in the story too. The two main characters make use of each other, and they do declare their love for each other, but there is no romance. But people thinking what they consume is a statement about who they are is probably a larger topic.
Add to Cart Add to Cart. One hand is burned to black crisp because it was not under protection. It is an enjoyable romp, for adults when the desire to escape a day of mundane stuff. There are exchanges like this: Tommy finds work at the local Safeway, where he meets Jody. It was that good! My intuition was right.
His humor is consistently rather broad, he has the demeanor of a elementary school I moroe Christopher Moore give a talk at the Tattered Cover recently, and having only read Fluke, I didn’t really grasp the nature of his audience. What, you may be wondering, was the point of that?
The police are puzzled, the Emperor knows it is a vampire but no one can take him seriously. The Bloodsuckingg Francisco police.
