"You bitch, you killed me. You suck!" Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks. Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody--the woman of his dreams--is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too. For some couples, the whole biting-and-blood thing would have been a deal breaker. But Tommy and Jody are in love, and they vow to work through their issues. Like how much Jody should teach Tommy about his new superpowers (and how much he needs to learn on his own). Plus there's Tommy's cute new minion, sixteen-year-old goth girl Abby Normal. (Well, someone has to run errands during daylight hours!) Making the relationship work, however, is the least of Jody and Tommy's problems. Word has it that the vampire who nibbled on Jody wasn't supposed to be recruiting any new members into the club. Even worse, Tommy's erstwhile turkey-bowling pals are out to get him, at the urging of a blue-dyed Las Vegas call girl named (duh) Blue.… (mere)

You Suck: A Love Story af Christopher Moore

  1. 20
    Horn af Joe Hill (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: If you like the darkly humorous aspects of Horns, you may like You Suck. Like Horns, You Suck has paranormal elements, and the protagonist has to cope with newly found powers after a mysterious occurrence.

    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? af Tom Holt (Dr.Science)
    Dr.Science: The English author Tom Holt is relatively unknown in America, but very popular in England. If you enjoy Jasper Fforde or Christopher Moore you will most certainly enjoy Tom Holt's wry sense of English humor and the absurd. He has written a number of excellent books including Expecting Someone Taller, and Flying Dutch, but they may be difficult to find at your library or bookstore.… (mere)

Not my style...

Highly entertaining, an excellent sequel, and a good palate-cleanser after the more complex and daunting "Little, Big". Recommended for a quick read and a fun time. ( )

Lost a star due to the ending, though this was damn funny and very very entertaining to read! good for a laugh out loud time ( )

I have been curious about Moore since his first book hit the big time. He was a "local" at the time, living in Cambria, about 35 miles from where I live. Curious yet not curious enough. So it seemed fitting that I'd try out one of his books on CD. It is easier to finish a book on CD than to read it when it isn't quite one's taste.

This is actually a sequel to Bloodsucking Fiends, written ten years before. It is quickly obvious when listening to this book, because there is so much detailed backstory. Yet it isn't critical that one read the first book to be able to understand the second.

Jody was made a vampire by an old vampire in the first book. Now her good friend and helpful human friend, C. Thomas Flood, is a vampire too, thanks to Jody's hunger. This leaves the two in a quandary: how do they deal with daily responsibilities, like renting an apartment, when neither can go out during the day? And who is going to offer a bit of a bloody snack to the other? Well, we find out perhaps more than we want to know about that.

Enter Abby Normal. Sixteen and goth to the core, Abby can think of nothing better than to assist some vampires, especially if they are real. Especially when Tommie's posse, "the animals", comes back from Las Vegas and shakes things up.

It's cute, it's imaginative, funny, and Abby especially is a kick. Moore actually took time to get the language right so it flows perfectly from her mouth. The reader, Susan Bennett, does a remarkable job, becoming each of the characters without a hitch.

It's not really my cup of tea. Vampires, silliness...better than others of this type but just not what I'd be looking for. However, the author interview at the end interested me, and I may check out some of his longer books. ( )

As with his best work, there’s a fundamental sweetness beneath the antics. And the characters are developed with real affection. That most of them are dead is never allowed to seem sad. And for parasitical bloodsuckers, they do remarkably little harm.

Susan Bennetts' sassy reading is a perfect fit for Moores satirical story and sarcastic dialogue.
