Bloodsucking FUN!

OK, I know some of you don't want to "fall" for the humor, but if you'll let yourself go, this book is SO funny. NOT every book is a documentary. If all books were all true, we'd be....non-existent. Give it a try. So clever. So funny. Many laugh-out-loud moments, as many others have said. Very engaging, I listened to it all as quickly as feasible. Enjoyable, and will listen to the others in the same series soon. Narrator SUSAN BENNETT IS AWESOME, and should be booked for work her entire career! She MORE than made it great. Loved her, and she brought more mental visions with the words than expected.
Am I right, people that've heard this?
Loved it, and I listen to books ALL day long, and I love horror. Even though this wasn't scary per se, it dealt with those ideas, which were more than enough for a good time. You like funny? You like vampires? Get this book. DON'T expect Lestat. Though......

Fun and Irreverent.

Laugh out loud funny. The author doesn't miss an oportunity to insult or offend. Think of it as Twilight, with character development,clever writing and a bad attitude.

A Novel For the Not So Classic Vampire Fan!

I absolutely love Christopher Moore! He is my unsung literary hero and I feindishly gobble up every novel he has ever written and unpatiently await his next work of genious! Blood Sucking Fiends is the first of (so far) three Vampire novels staring Jodi & Tommy, your not so ordinary vampire couple. These novels are sexy, funny and encompass Moore's unending talent for bringing interesting characters that grow and develop and change as each story takes its turns and twists. I highly recommend this one for those of you who love the art of sarcasm and wit.

Buy this book!

This book made me laugh out loud from start to finish. The trials and tribulations of a newly made vampire yuppie chic, who has no idea how to proceed. The many characters and situation are hilarious, made only more so for being set in San Francisco (where I live) with recognizable locations and dialogue that is as funny as it is plausable. Not to be missed if you like vampires - or laughing.

Frozen Turkey Bowling!

1st book in one of the best trilogies on audible. If you like comedy and vampires add this to your must listen to list. Always funny and sometimes creepy. Each book gets better than the last.

Vampire Love

I picked this book because of how much I loved Lamb. This book was an easy listen; it was funny, sometimes a little creepy, sometimes a little dark, but mostly funny. I love the narration; it was truly spectacular.

A wonderful surprise

With the recent vampire craze lately, I was already apprehensive about ANOTHER vampire story. That was quickly put at ease within the first few chapters. Moore's satirical wit and uniquely flawed characters make for the best vamp book I've read since the Ann Rice series... but this is far more fun to read. I can't wait to start on the next one: You Suck!

Very Entertaining

This book is typical Christopher Moore - meaning, very off the wall and very irreverent, but funny and entertaining. I listen to these on long road trips and am challenged when I need to stop and really just want to stay in the car and listen. Lots of fun.

Not what I thought, but still good.

Would you consider the audio edition of Bloodsucking Fiends to be better than the print version?

This was my first time ever listening or reading this book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Emperor is my favorite. His lines are kind of limited in comparison but the book would not be the same without him. He adds more character to the book.

What about Susan Bennett’s performance did you like?

She was much better than some of the other narrators that I have come accross. You could tell the characters apart so she was far from monotone which can really ruin a book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No and not in a bad way. The pace of the book is moderate and allows you to read that way. You are able to take breaks in the story. Even though the book has suspense there is some comedy relief that allows you to pace yourself.

Any additional comments?

This book was nothing like what I expected. I'm thinking it would be a "normal" vampire love story when I started...NOT!!! I actually started the audiobook over because my mindset going in was wrong. This is a witty, different kind of vampire book...and I like it. I am now a fan of the author and the series and will continue to read/listen.
