I just could not take him seriously. I much preferred the author's book A Dirty Job. I will not continue this seri I just could not get into this one.
I will not continue this series. Jun 01, Athena rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Recommended to Athena by: I've totally forgotten … sorry Bloodsucking Fiends is a flat-out romp.
I snickered, chortled, and yes, guffawed through the entire quick read. Moore writes with quirky ease, managing to seamlessly integrate the sport of frozen turkey bowling into a modern vampire tale featuring an actual, non-sparkly, quite threatening vampire lurking in the background of this modern tale of American romance, unlooked-for vampirism, and over-worked cops.
The perfect light read for summer, or any time you need a good laugh. Sep 18, C. Phipps rated it liked it Shelves: The premise is Jody is a 26 year old urban professional who gets turned into a vampire, only to immediately recruit a 19 year old would-be-writer to be her minion since she can't go out in the day. This is while she's being stalked by her super-rich creator and Emperor Norton of San Fransisco mysteriously alive years after his death , who is apparently a vampire hunter now.
The book is mostly entertaining but had a few moments where the frat boy humor was less than awesome.
The Animals, for example, are Wallmart employees who act exactly like they do in real life when unsupervised--and I get enough of them when I shop. Yeah, there's a word for that. Overall, there was a lot of good moments but a few bad ones hurt its readability factor. Sep 18, Queen Betsy is pure silliness but I recommend it as well. Similarly the Holl C. Similarly the Hollows first few books. Great that all have audios! May 08, sj rated it liked it Shelves: I mean, it wasn't terrible, and I liked it, but if I had started with this book, I'd be in no hurry to return to his work.
It was pretty overwhelming. I already own a bunch of his stuff see previous statement about all the pressure from friends , but I'm not in much of a hurry to read it anymore.
I started You Suck the other day, but only got a few pages in before I realized that I just didn't give a damn right then. Maybe I'll be in a better mood the next time I try his work. View all 36 comments. Vampire Lovers and Humor Enthusiasts!
I decided to read something light. This is a light, kind of trashy adult vampire novel. It's hilarious and casual, and not by any means a proper quality novel. It sounds like I'm talking shit about it, but I'm sure it's meant to be that way. And I don't view it in a negative way! A young woman Jody gets turned into a vampire, and she's left alone with tons of cash.

She realizes her life has turned upside down, and meets a young man Tommy she thought she could use as her little slave to do her bidding during the day.
They fall in love for some reason.

The danger in this novel is that her maker is killing people, and making it look like Jody and Tommy are to blame. So they want to stop him.
At the same time she feels incredibly alone in her new condition. The pace is pretty slow at the start fine by me , but when things started happening, it all got solved pretty quickly and the book was over. Get A Copy. Navigation menu; Bloodsucking Fiends - Wikipedia?
Also it cuts between different characters way too often. But other than that it was a fun read! Recommended for adult vampire fans who wants a light read. Dec 30, Wendy Bunnell rated it it was ok.
First, I really like Christopher Moore and think that he is hilarious, which is something sadly lacking in most of the stuff I read. Even the books that are listed as humor. So, my patience wears thin, even for a fellow Wisconsin native like Rothfuss. Yes, this is all my fault.
Well, bad things happen, but nothing related to reading books. In fact, this year I was actually the recipient of two free books just from pretty much hanging out at Goodreads and entering giveaways, including one that was directly from that group, so overall good. This was the hold-out. Yet, I always came up with lame excuses. Oh look, shiney new book, I want to read this instead. Something kept me from committing to reading Bloodsucking Fiends.
Some unseen force, a guiding hand of fate, was preventing me from reading it. My intuition was right. I powered through it because I had committed to it and spent an Audible credit. The characters, especially the two main characters Jody and Tommy, were truly unlikable. That was probably a good thing, as she was rather unredeemable.
And Tommy is no better. But Tommy was just wishy washy until he was rapey and abducty towards Jody. If you could concoct a list of annoying stereotypes from books, this one probably has it covered. Oh, your mother is a superficial, crazed harpy, how original. The saving grace was The Emperor and his dogs. Loved him and every scene that they were in.
I wish his majesty had been the narrator, as that would have been a more interesting perspective and we still could have viewed the shenanigans of Jody figuring out her new vampire skills, Tommy working at the grocery store, their dysfunctional relationship, and the mystery of who is running around town killing terminally ill people and making them look like vampire attacks. There were funny moments. But not enough to save this one for me. May 14, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: Vampire comedy 3 Settings where it took place or characters you met: I think one of the worst things about it is that the first book was published in the latter half So.
I think one of the worst things about it is that the first book was published in the latter half of the s. At that point, hardly anyone had a cell phone, and if I recall correctly, that is even mentioned in the first book. This book starts the day after Bloodsucking Fiends ends, but was published in That's a large amount of time between books, but the author seems to have forgotten that his original story happened in the late 90s, because suddenly the characters are all carrying cell phones and downloading music at Starbucks with WiFi.
It was a fast read, and it was interesting to see what he came up with as the continuing story of Jody and Tommy. But overall, it fell kind of flat. Abby was funny at times, so that was nice. Or vice versa, actually. This installment just made that more glaringly apparent. Now I'm trying to decide if I should read the third book. Dec 14, Jackie "the Librarian" rated it it was ok Shelves: Sporadically funny, disjointed vampires-in-love story, that almost stands alone from it's prequel, Bloodsucking Fiends.
Jody and Tommy are young, new vampires, just trying to make things work. But life is so complicated when you're vampires! Just figuring out who to have for dinner can be a chore!
First of all, they need a minion okay, I loved the minion, Abby Normal to do their daytime errands, like getting them a new apartment. They have to move, because Tommy's old gang at work has learned Sporadically funny, disjointed vampires-in-love story, that almost stands alone from it's prequel, Bloodsucking Fiends.
They have to move, because Tommy's old gang at work has learned that he's a vampire now, them and the blue call-girl they've brought back from Vegas, and they are probably going to come after him.
And then there's the old vampire who turned Jody to start with, and he gets loose and starts killing people. More and more of the characters get turned into vampires, unexplained threads from the previous book come into play, and the action gets messier and messier until the end, when nothing is resolved.
It is all just paused until the next installment.
I might have enjoyed this more if I'd read Bloodsucking Fiends , but I didn't enjoy this one enough to bother. Aug 17, Serena..

Sep 06, Leslie rated it liked it Shelves: I bought this from a clearance bin because the author has the same name as my husband. It has been sitting on my shelf for years but it fits into a reading challenge. I made myself finally open it up. I haven't read anything by this author and had no idea what to expect going in. I just knew that it was about Vampires.
I also didn't know that it was second in a series but I didn't feel lost at all.
It does a great job of recapping what happene 2. It does a great job of recapping what happened in the first book. This is about a vampire, Jody, who turns her love slave, "minion" into a vampire. Basically, it's about him figuring out his new vampire life and them running from a bunch of people.
Christopher Moore - Bloodsucking Fiends
Another "minion" human to do their day chores is chosen and this is where things kind of get crazy for me. The narrative is switched up with her recounts in a diary.
When he meets Jody and she seems to find viends totally irresistible he can not believe his luck. Bloodsucking Fiends is a flat-out romp.
Return to Book Page. But maybe that is just me. The writing was clever and the narrator was really good. Jody never asked to become a vampire. My sister and my husband have been swearing up and down that I would love Christopher Moore.
But not enough to save this one for me. Other books in the series. Bloodsucking Fiends Love Story , book 1 by Christopher Moore How Tommy and Jody, aided by the Animals, the Emperor and the police figure out just what is going on is one of the funniest books you might ever read. You will not want to put it down and will annoy your family and friends as you constantly laugh out loud. One person found this helpful. This is the perfect escapist novel for fantasy readers.
However, you must like vampires and wry humor. Navigation menu The plot's pretty straightforward, with plenty of winks to the major elements of vampire mythos. It's funny but not silly, with enough characterization to keep you caring about the vampires and their humans.
The pacing is perfect - I didn't find any dull sections. Written in the s, it's also a bit ironic to see characters not keeping in touch when they can't find a pay phone. All in all, these fiends are friends I look forward to reading more about in the series' next two books. The first of this trilogy sets the tone of the story.
First of all, it is "A Love Story" with a very unique premise. This is a funny book, as are all of Moore's books and quirky as usual. What "violence" there is, is not violent, but necessary to set up the events of how the main character finds herself in the position she's in, and weaves a thread to bring about the next two books in this trilogy.
It is an easy read and flows right along in its storytelling. So many great characters and situations. You never can tell where one event will lead to the next, but if you are a Moore fan, you will see little references to characters in other of his books. Bloodsucking Fiends It's a treat to run across them and takes you back to that particular book and story reminding you of how quirky Moore's writings are.
This is a fun trilogy to read and you will wish he would write sequel. But no doubt he will bring them back in another book somewhere down the road. Have fun reading this. I did and couldn't wait to share with my "fiends", I mean friends. See all reviews.
