From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The book is garnished with a host of strange characters, pornographic Disney tattoos, attempted necrophilia, and Hiaasenesque humor.
It sounds like I’m talking shit about it, but I’m sure it’s meant to be that way. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It’s still ridiculous fictional literature, but I enjoyed the characters in Lamb more. It’s an easy read. Let’s say I ran into him later on in the food court.
Bloodsucking Fiends (A Love Story, #1) by Christopher Moore
The book is mostly entertaining but had a few moments where the frat boy humor was less than awesome. Loved him and every scene that they were in. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
Must redeem within 90 days. But god how I wish I could get an edition with a big chunk of the jokes redacted. There are a lot of places in the book where the author revels in his own cleverness, and I, as an irritating youngster, would have delighted so much in recognizing them that I might have overlooked entirely that there’s basically a giant neon sign hanging over several parts of the book xtory Look At How Clever I Am!

The bloodaucking part is the attempt at appearing to be an edgy outsider, sort of an Eddie Izzard type of effect. Is that what you want? Is it important to read the Bloodsucking Fiends series in order? Yet there is a Reading Group Guide at the back with discussion questions like this: A centuries-old vampire provides elements of tension and extreme danger.
At first I thought I liked this because of bloodsuking narrator’s delivery of the off color vamp Urban Fantasy.

If you have the option to read in order, though, I would recommend it. Thomas Flood fits in. 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.
At least there was no cliffhanger but I know the characters live on in 2 additional books so I am itchy to hear more. It’sand if you can’t be genuine, you’ve got to wrap yourself in at least 5 layers of irony if you want to avoid an eye-roll from the audience.
That much is apparent.
But other than that it was a fun read! Most of the book revolves around Jody’s relationship with Tommy. The San Francisco police.
Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story
Life, unfortunately, for Thomas can not all be about sex. Thomas Flood, a night manager at a grocery store, and makes him her minion. 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 turned 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.
I don’t think Mr. Moore was even trying to hit the romantic mark but only created a parody.
By the point in the book where he considered having sex with his vampire girlfriend while she was asleep, knowing she wouldn’t wake up because vampire, was the end of any chance for me to like that bag of neurotic dicks.

Moore at best seems to be a garbage bag who seems to think that the main character literally being raped when Flood, only slightly more tolerable than a roomful of colicky infants, has sex with her prone body while she’s physically unable to defend herself is funny.
Yet, I always came up with lame excuses. It’s not going to hold up for, say, my year-old stepdaughter who likes Home Alone bloodxucking better than bloodscking original movie. I really enjoy his books. As Jody and Tommy settle into together, things take a turn for the worse when the vampire who created Jody starts causing trouble for them.
Well, bad things happen, but nothing related to reading books. A Love Story 3 books. No clues in the prose left me sometimes scratching my head, you know, like reading an Emily Dickinson poem. A Love Story Author s: Despite this, I would still buy his next book in hardcover. In the case of Christopher Moore, though, it’s not always necessary. This was the hold-out. I read that he felt he was writing a 3-act screenplay that would be easily adapted into a Hollywood vampire comedy film.
Oh, Tommy just doesn’t understand women hochachachacha
