    First of all, I would normally never even think to read this book But as I was looking at the clearance rack, a kid, ie teenager, approached me Hey, do you like vampires I was disturbed how unfazed I was with the completely random question Sure Slightly wary Have you heard of Moore He s a vampire now That answers a lot of questions Michael Moore I m riffling books hoping he ll go away No, not that crazy one, this is a Christopher Moore He s hilarious and has his own cult started The clarification didn t really help gain any brownie points for Christopher Moore Ummmm, that s cool Looking for exit.The kid picks up a book on the clearance rack Try him You ll love it If you like vampires, you ll LOVE this book I read, You SuckA Love Story Is he high or something This looks like a a suckASS book OK, thanks, I ll give it a try I bought the book, and now I m so grateful that the kid decided that I was the vampire loving type of chick.It is impossible to completely classify this book So when you see the basic description of A love story on the cover, that s the best way to explain it It s a love story of vampires that is hysterically funny I can t even begin to try and explain why it s funny, so just read it You ll start out being a little stunned, then you ll giggle, then you ll just laugh continuously.Whatever you do, DO NOT READ THE LAST SENTENCE OF THE BOOK UNTIL IT S TIME It s a special sentence that will break you for a few days, but you ne...

    Another very funny book from Christopher Moore, this one the middle book in his vampire trilogy Not as outrageous or imaginative as the other two, this is still vintage Moore with his unique way of dealing with a well worn fantasy subject.Moore may have thought of this trilogy a long time a...

    Funny, with some definitely quotable moments However, for me, Moore s vampire series is the weakest of his work That s not an insult I still enjoy them and definitely snicker out loud in ways that make those around me pick up their things and stealthily move away from the crazy person, but they re a little too wink, wink, nudge, nudge sometimes in their humor What impresses me with Moore is that, often among all of the wacky chaos, he can sneak up on you with a beautiful turn of phrase or moment that catches you off guard The scene where Jody feeds off of a man with terminal cancer is beautiful and touching ...

    This is my first Chris Moore book I quickly realized that this was a sequel, but I was already into the story Why Because Moore is fricking hilarious This is the story of two rookie vampires Jody and Tommy who are doing their best to avoid the law, former friends, and giving in completely to their primal natures And of course they need a minion Enter Abby Normal Her greatest struggle is trying to shove down her inherent perkiness and embrace the darkness of goth, or whatever she is Her narration of the story is one of the most entertaining aspects of the book Then there s the bronzed literally vampire who sired Jody The two fledgling vampires must decide what to do with him so he will no longer be a threat So, if you like vampires who don t take themselves too seriously or brood, or...

    Blech.I really enjoyed the last Christopher Moore novel and decided to try another, despite the fact that the plot isn t ordinarily one that would draw my attention I picked this one because 1 it was handy on the library shelf, and 2 it was written after A Dirty Job and I thought that meant it was likely to be written at least as well That was a mistake This one s going back to the library unfinished, because I m just not wasting any time on it I read about a quarter of the book, in which stupid, not particularly likable characters bumble their way through a stupid and artificial plot Usually, if I read even that...

    Years ago, I read Lamb by Christopher Moore and loved it I m not sure if my tastes have changed or if Moore s output is just not consistent, but I hated this book In fact, this may actually be the worst book I ve ever read I considered quitting at several points, but with books and movies I have a need to see how they end even if I don t like them, so I trudged on.For starters, I didn t realize right away that this book is a sequel If this is indicated anywhere on my copy of the book, I sure don t see it That having been said, this series isn t exactly Game of Thrones so I didn t feel too lost by starting on book 2, but there were certain parts of the story that I felt like might have made sense if I had read the books in order.Almost immediately after I started this book, Moore s writing style started to irritate me The first 3 4 or so of this book is almost all dialogue This gets a little better toward the end, once the climax starts and there s action, but by that point, I just wanted to get it over with and didn t really care any.Even worse than the excessive dialogue is the fact that I was ambivalent, at best, about the characters Most of them, I actively disliked Many reviews of this book, even negative ones,...

    3.5 stars You Suck A Love Story is a hilarious romp through San Francisco The book focuses on Jody and Tommy, two new fledgling vampires and their rather unconventional love Jody bites Tommy and makes him a vampire He is not too happy with his new condition, but is easily distracted by Jody and the allure of wild monkey sex with her.Christopher Moore s vampires have interesting powers They can turn to mist when necessary, which helps them get out of trouble or causes trouble They burn in the sunlight or with UV ray exposure During daylight, they sleep like the dead.The attraction of this book was the unique cast of characters Everyone in this book is crazy in their own special way Each character or set of characters gets their own little subplot, guaranteed to make you laugh Parts of the book are narrated by Abby von Normal, a teenage wannabe nosferatu and sometimes goth Abby is Tommy s minion, his daylight helper She is infatuated with Tommy, and would do anything to become a vampire In fact, she thinks she is a vampire after Jody takes a drink from her Abby s diary contains astute observations, a little bit of teen rebellion, and a lot of great new vocabulary like endorken Abby s friend Jared adds some humor to the mix He is a gay teenager living with his parents who are in denial Other cast characters inc...

    I was expecting from this book since Moore wrote it after Dirty Job But, where Dirty Job was nicely crafted, well paced, and original, You Suck was not quite the same It is certainly an original take on a story that s been told over and over again Vampires are not original but Moore does add some nice texture and moral complexity to the creatures Unfortunately, I found the pacing awkward Moore switches back and forth from third person narrative to first person through the conceit of having one of the characters write in a diary For me, it ruined the flow of the third person narrative Just as some of the scenes would get to the climax, Moore goes into diary mode and describes the scene as a past event The effect was interesting the first time, curious the second, and, ultimately, annoying That being said, the diary sections are pretty humorous All things considered, it is a fun, entertaining, and quick read.Note to Christopher Moore What is the deal with palming doors shut Is it like some secret game to see how many novels you can put it in Why Personally, I was it over by the second time it appeared in Diry Job, but then I saw it in Island of the Sequined Love Nun, You Suck, Blood Sucking Fiends, Lamb, and Fluke Though it is entirely possible that by the time I got to Fluke I was j...
