More About the Author

Christopher Moore was born in Ohio and lived there until he was nineteen, when he moved to California.

Chris divides his time between Hawaii and San Francisco.

Product Description

Review

Everything I've come to expect from Christopher Moore. It's wildly funny, it's touching, it's unexpected. I think his imagination grew up next to Area 51 (Charlaine Harris)

An imaginative account of the young, the goth, and the fanged (Washington Post)

Moore breathes new life into vampires with Bite Me (The Torch)

Book Description

A vampire love story

Christopher Moore has been one of my favourite writers. I love the Pine Cove books, Lamb, Fluke, A Dirty Job and Bloodsucking Demons. But something seemed to go wrong in You Suck, where he let the book get out of control, leading to a train-wreck ending which pulled a deus ex machina out of the hat to arrive at a spectacular non-conclusion. Then came Fool, of which the less said the better, and now this.

Well, to start off, the actual plot doesn't materialise until the last fifty pages, and then it's an anticlimax because Moore relies on outrageous coincidences and such like to remove what little danger there is. So as soon as there's any sign of conflict it goes away again, almost immediately. Then there's lazy plotting. One character goes bonkers when the plot needs him to, and then becomes sane again, just like that, when the plot needs him to. And, once again, the ending is a total train-wreck, with unconvincing behaviour all round. Plus, for some reason, presumably to please the fans, Kona from Fluke makes a brief and incomprehensible appearance. And guess what: in Fluke he's funny and likeable; here he's annoying.

So, basically I shall be very dubious about buying any further books by Moore. Three duds in a row hits my threshold. At least we have eight great books.

Format: Hardcover
The first Christopher Moore Book I read was Bloodsucking Fiends. It is the first book in this Love Story trilogy and one of four set in and around San Francisco. I absolutely loved it. When I reached the end of book 2, You Suck, I literally wanted to throw it across the room - I hated the ending so much. This one completely redeems it beyond all expectations. The fourth book set in the Bay area is A Dirty Job, and though a great story, and deserving of a squeal, it overlaps with this trilogy with a number of characters, and places. All are worth reading. But I don't think this book should be read as a standalone.

This story continues a few months after You Suck. Abby von Normal is still running around desiring to become a vampire with her boyfriend, Stephen Fooman. But all hell breaks loose in the bay area. Vampire Cats are eating all the street people and others. Their hoard is growing and appears unstoppable. Jodi and Tommy are freed from their bronze encasement, but Tommy has lost his mind while encased in bronze and is missing. To make matters worse, a dark ship arrives in the bay with three ancient vampires who have come to clean up the mess.

Moore states on his website that he wanted to write horror books. But people kept laughing at what he wrote, so he decided to write humour. He does indeed write with a humour bent and a very skewed look at life, and in this book life through a number of different characters eyes. The book is written as a series of first person narratives. Each character telling their experience of the events, so the story jumps time to time from person or storyline. Yet it all remains a complete and fluid composite whole. When you finish reading you feel satiated, satisfied and like anyone who has eaten too much maybe a little sleepy.

It is always exciting to get a new Christopher Moore book. He writes the best books to escape into and the most alive characters. All are reunited here in the third book about Jody and Tommy's life (or death) as vampires.
Fast passed and not short of action it is a race to save San Francisco for the undead cat Chet (shaved and getting larger), but as always there are other problems on the horizon.
The journal entries from Abi Von Normal were a personal favourite.
Sit back read and be entertained.

There are not too many authors I can always sit down with. Moore is one. I give a slight edge to his earlier vampire oriented books, but this one continues quite well. It isn't as strong in plot, but that really isn't what this is about, is it? There is a lot of re-introducing the previous books, so I think would be good for someone who didn't read the earlier ones and it isn't too much for a fan to re-read.

Abby Von Normal's OTT oh so OMG I am not EMO teen speak takes a bit of getting used to but Moore does it so well and I was ROTFLMAO. You get the point? I liked her more poppy goth earlier incarnation, but she's developed as a character and honestly I think I know her.

I'd buy this book only to read Abby Von Normal's explanation of modern SMS shorthand and why only poseurs actually say "oh-em-gee" when they read OMG. They do that on TV! I mean, really! You have to read that part, it is awesome. No, I won't explain what OTT, OMG and EMO mean. Look it up or read the book :)

By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Mar. 2011
Format: Paperback
The third book in Chris' Vampire Trilogy and of the two that I've read the best. Picking up where the previous title pretty much left off (well five weeks later) the key protagonist in this title is Abby Normal (yep Mel Brooks Young Frankenstein joke right there) who as minion and emergency Countess of the City Bay area to the city's two Bronzed Vampires seeks to survive a humdrum existence as well as battling Vampire Kitties. Its definitely fun and returns to Chris' earlier humour that I felt was missing from the previous book (You Suck.)

Add to this some great cameo's from the supporting cast, some wonderful twists backed with some cunningly crafted turns and the reader has a treat in store, especially if you're seeking something a little different to a lot of the Vamp fiction out there.
