Christopher Moore sets the bar high with his writing. Very few books written these days are laugh out loud funny. When I read Mr. Moore's LAMB, I got thrown out of more places and had more strange looks on airplanes because I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. Then my son read it (and laughs very loud). FLUKE was close.

YOU SUCK, the sequel to BLOODSUCKING FIENDS, passed the laugh out loud test in a couple of places. YOU SUCK follows former minion C. Thomas Flood, newly converted to a vampire, and his girlfriend, the now forever fabulous red-head Jody (who turned Flood into a vampire and was recently converted herself) as they try to figure out this undead thing.

But the laugh out loud pieces come when Moore turns the narrative over to "Abby Normal", the 16 year old goth/perky female minion chosen by Flood to do the vampires daylight bidding. Her diary narrative makes me think that Moore was a 16 year old goth/perky female in another life! And Blue, the aging Vegas hooker who dyes herself blue as a gimmick, has some good lines as well.

The ending is rather convenient, leaves it open for another sequel. The plot here isn't as compelling as LAMB or FLUKE. But it's a fun read. Read BLOODSUCKING FIENDS first though to get the background on all of the characters. Some of the characters from DIRTY JOB get looped in (as Mr. Moore always does in his writing) but they are minor so that book is not necessary to read before this one.

Pretty good for the second episode, liked the story twists and the characters, mostly bonkers and absurd but generally affectionate portrayals that keep them likeable even when being horrendous. The premise of vampires predominantly going for the diseased and dying softens the harshness and allows for the humour.

I was a new reader of Christopher Moore so I chose to first purchase the "Vampire trilogy" that is Blood Sucking Fiends, You suck and Bite Me. I've always been a fan of comedy in books but have often found that the writers miss the mark sometimes. Christopher Moore's books are good gripping stories that keep you turning the page and I did find myself laughing out loud on many occassions. Put it this way, I've now gone on to order the rest of his material.

This is not a recent publication, but I have only just read it, and I want to share. It is a very very funny book dealing with what happens when Thomas J Flood (aka Tommy and, frankly a bit of a geek) is bitten by his beautiful red-haired girlfriend Jody, and turns into "a foul dead thing" - well, a vampire anyway. Their undead existence is sometimes helped but more often complicated by William, the homeless man with the huge cat, Chet, the huge cat himself (shaved early in the proceedings, after which he wears a red sweater) Abby Normal, a little Goth girl, her Emo friend Jared, the Animals, (the night crew from the supermarket where Tommy used to work), Elijah, the eight hundred year old vampire who vampirised Jody, the Emperor of San Franciso and his dogs, the ex Cheddar Princess of Fond du Lac, Cavuto and Rivera, the Homicide cops who believe in vampires, and hunt them...and Steven Wong...
It is farce, but it is very good farce, and full of excellent lines such as: "Abby pouted - sticking out her lower lip far enough that pink was showing above her black lipstick, making her look vaguely like a cat eating a plum" and under the farce there is, even amongst the vampires a strong sense of humanity and responsibility. One of the recurrent phrases is the question "Have you fed Chet?" Yes. Foul dead things but they get their priorities right. And it all ends happily. More or less.
(There is gore, rough language, and sex. But hey - this is San Francisco, and they are vampires...)

By Stephen A. Haines HALL OF FAME on 15 Feb. 2007
Format: Hardcover
Elijiah begat Jody. Jody begat Tommy. Tommy begat Blue. Not by birth, but by bite. The begatting still granted life, but it's eternal life - with special powers. Elijiah, eight hundred and seventeen years old, is a vampire of long experience. Taking up with the young woman, he tutors her in the ways of the undead. He overlooks Jody's resourcefulness, however, and becomes a statue. With Elijiah immobilised, she is free to choose her own consort. Tommy, a naive Midwesterner from Incontience, Indiana proves an inspired choice. They're young, in love, and in trouble. For one thing, the police know who, and what, they are.

Christopher Moore's inventiveness has become nearly legendary. His books may be labelled "fantasy" only under the broadest definition. Set in contemporary environments, his stories leave you looking askance at your neighbours and friends. Just who is that teen in the bizarre dress and make-up? Is she just protesting against normal values, or is she bearing a hidden agenda. "Abby Normal", who slowly takes over this story, is but eight centuries younger than Elijiah. Her own ingenuity builds through the story as she interacts with a succession of "dark lords", the Countess, her mother and the "cops". The "p" is derisively inflected, of course - she has little time for such 'tarded people.

Vampires have special problems, of course. Once transformed, the diet is blood. Regular food, coffee or even plain water brings a violent intestinal reaction. To acquire the blood means hunting. Humans, animals such as rats since this is The City - even insects when times are hard. A trip to the zoo is not out of the question, but thirst must be enhanced by talent, or the vampire entering the cage may not come out intact. Their time is night, since daylight can vaporise them.
