My 5th Moore book and first in this trilogy... does not disappoint! Some of the same characters as Dirty Job, personally not a huge fan of vampire genre but this makes it hilarious. Excited to read other two.

I would prefer never to read another zombie or vampire tale ever again. However it is Christopher Moore and I'll probably read all of his works despite the subject. Look I'm giving this five stars based solely on the fact that he is the first person I've heard reference polio bud since the year of our Lord 19 and 86. I know of maybe one or two living souls that I even shared this strain with when I brought it from Irvine, California to San Jose, Missourah back in the 80's. One hit of this stuff made you drool on yourself and unable to walk, and that sums up the 80's for me perfectly. I probably never would have even remembered it had he not mentioned in this piece. Thanks for the memories and thanks for another fabulous novel.

To make much sense and really be any fun, this vampire trilogy HAS to be read in order: (1) Bloodsucking Fiends (2) You Suck (3) Bite Me; with A Dirty Job as an interval between (2) & (3).

Interesting love story of a different kind!! Christopher Moore's subtle humor makes for a fun read!! I would say 7 out of 10 for me. Looking forward to listening to the two sequels on audio book.

Funny book on a known theme. Enjoyable read. Sympathetic characters. All in all an original book from a new author (for me). Many more to follow.

A different kind of vampire book, it had me laughing out loud at some of the descriptions of scenes. Doesn't take itself seriously in the least! I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys comedy with life changing events.

I can see why he has been compared with Hiaasen but I found this book just mildly amusing. The Emperor is far & away the most entertaining character so I hope he's in all the books. An original take on the vampire theme.

First in Moore's Vampire Trilogy, followed by "You Suck" and "Bite Me." This book begins the story of Jody Stroud who gets turned into a vampire and left under a dumpster. Jody's life with her minion, the hapless Tommy Flood (new in town from Incontinence, Indiana), is hilariously filled with quirky characters, witty dialogue, and plenty of supernatural adventures.
Funniest parts: Tommy's adventures with the Wongs; Tommy's reminisces about his home life back in Indiana; the Animals' recreational activities (e.g., turkey bowling, soapsud-skiing behind the self-propelled floor-scrubber); Tommy's vampire research, especially his experiments on Jody to determine the limits of her vampiric traits; and the turtle's attack on Jody's pretentious mother.

Hilarious. I kept bugging my husband with passages I just had to share.
