Book Description

20 May 2010

Like Edward Cullen in Twilight, Nigel Mullet was transformed into a vampire when he was still a teenager, and will remain this age forever. Unfortunately, Nigel became a vampire at the awkward age of fifteen, and must spend eternity coping with acne, a breaking voice, and an ineptitude with girls . . . In this, his excruciatingly funny diary, Nigel chronicles his increasingly desperate attempts to be noticed by the love of his life, Chloe Sparrow, the constant mortification caused by his vampire parents (not to mention the worry that they might accidentally eat one of his friends), and the frustration one feels when you've got the whole of boring eternity stretching out in front of you and you can't even have a lie-in (vampires don't sleep). Forced to hang out with the Goths and emo kids due to his pale skin and social awkwardness, and constantly battling his embarrassingly overwhelming desire to sink his fangs into Chloe's neck, will Nigel ever get his girl? Fantastically witty and hugely entertaining, this fun and accessible diary will appeal to anyone, teenage or otherwise . . .

*Winner of the Lincolnshire Young People's Book Award 2012

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprise hit! 27 May 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my twelve-year old niece because I thought she might find it funny... and she loved it! I have to confess I picked it up myself too, and it really is a good read. Reminded me a bit of the old Adrian Mole books, mixed with Twilight... but funnier.

It's definitely a hit, both with me and my niece - a fun gift, and a surprisingly good read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very funny! 10 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been going through some of the books in the Kindle "Parodies" genre and have come across some very funny reads, this book being no exception. It is a laugh-out-loud mickey take that is suitable for children to read, although I would suspect the vampire/Twilight appreciation crowd will enjoy it so much more.

The diary aspect of it did remind of "Adrian Mole Aged 13 ", but it was well written (in a childish way) and managed to keep me entertained throughout.

Two other laugh-out-loud books I would highly recommend in this genre are, Tony Royden's rib-aching comedy thriller The Dealer (not suitable for children) and David Thorn's The Internet is a Playground.

I will certainly be checking out other Tim Collins books (hope they are as good as this one).

By Mr. R. D. Turner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Nigel is a teenage vampire, forever at secondary school but unlike the cool and attractive vampires in Twilight he is awkward and self conscious. Even more frustratingly his parents and sister have vampire strength and attractiveness and he doesn't. He longs for a girl in his class and although I won't reveal the ending as another review does the character does progress and the story has a proper ending.

The pages are written in a graphic style that appears a bit childish but the diary entries are short and succinct and keep you reading. I started the book thinking "oh dear, a copy of The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 / The Diary of a Teenage Health Freak" but actually it is better than that. It is a very fast and easy read and there are lots of subtle digs at vampire mythology.

A bit daft for adults but I enjoyed it. If I was 13 I would probably think it was brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rated 99.9/100 by my son! 24 Sep 2010
By K. Mcdougall VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My 8yr old son has several Wimpy Kid books and so the title of this book attracted us. It is worth pointing out that this book is not in the in the Wimpy Kid series and it is not by the same author. 8 is probably as young as the reader can be for this and only then if they are confident readers and the content is about the life and observations of a 15yr old boy (vampire).

The book includes topics that are targeted at older children but a lot of the humour actually spans all ages. I picked up the book with the intention of flicking through and found myself sitting dow to read it for 30mins. The story is well written, witty and humorous. It is full of funny lines on the daily observations of a vampire - 'the undead have feelings too'.
