First of all, the characters are very colorful, the writing is humorous, and the vampire lore just a little different llove all the other stuff out there. Ma passiamo al romanzo. Sign up and get a free eBook!

There are a lot of places in the book where the author revels in his own cleverness, and I, as an irritating youngster, would have delighted so much in recognizing them that I might have overlooked entirely that there’s basically a giant neon sign hanging over several parts of the book proclaiming Look At How Clever I Am! A Love Story Author s: Yes, this is all my fault.

She realizes that she needs to have a human to help her out in the daylight hours. The two main characters make use of each other, and they do declare their love for each other, but there is no romance. Either that or a prepubescent boy.

Moore at best seems to be a garbage bag who seems to think that the main character literally being raped when Flood, only slightly more tolerable than a roomful of colicky infants, has sex with her prone body while she’s physically unable to defend herself is funny. She finds out that she’s been unwittingly turned into a vampire.

It’s still ridiculous fictional literature, but I enjoyed the characters in Lamb more. Christopher Moore is an American writer of absurdist fiction. And it only works if your characters are bloodskcking. The book is mostly entertaining but had a few moments where the frat boy fiencs was less than awesome.

It’s not going to hold up for, say, my year-old stepdaughter who likes Home Alone 3 better than the original movie.

I don’t think I’ll be picking up the other books in this series.

Becoming a vampire has given the twentysomething heroine “a crampless case of rattlesnake PMS”–a grumpy mood tsory which she realizes that she can dress to the nines as a “Donner Party Barbie” and still end up disillusioned and unhappy, just another slacker doing her own laundry and watching sucky TV ’til the sun rises. Lamb, Angel, Dirty Job, Fool, Lust Lizard, Fluke, all meet and exceed the sotry of using seriously unfunny subjects religion, death, Shakespeare, mental illness, science by a Master of Humor The interesting thing fiemds this book is how clearly it illustrates the evolution of a writer and his novel-crafting skill.


And Tommy is no better. Despite this, I would still buy his next book in hardcover. A would-be Kerouac from Incontinence, Indiana, Tommy to his friends is biding stoty time night-clerking and frozen-turkey bowling in a San Francisco Safeway.

Did you ever think about that? Needless to say living with five men who look on you as the golden prize becomes a little uncomfortable. He rents a cot from a Chinese entrepreneur named Wong and finds himself living with five other Chinese gentlemen all named Wong as well.

I will not continue this seri I just could not get into this one. Everyone has been exposed to vampire lore, either through books, movies or television. So I had an excuse to read a book by the hilarious Christopher Moore.

My sister and my husband have been swearing up and down that I would love Christopher Moore.

But it was just too unbelievable and straight-up silly. The saving grace was The Emperor and his dogs. The book is garnished with a host of strange ,ove, pornographic Disney tattoos, attempted necrophilia, and Hiaasenesque humor.

His humor is consistently rather broad, he has the demeanor of a elementary school I saw Christopher Moore give a talk at the Tattered Cover recently, and having only read Fluke, I didn’t really grasp the nature of his audience.
