Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story

Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jody never asked to become a vampire. But when she wakes up under an alley Dumpster with a badly burned arm, an aching back, superhuman strength, and a distinctly Nosferatuan thirst, she realizes the decision has been made for her.

Making the transition from the nine-to-five grind to an eternity of nocturnal prowlings is going to take some doing, however, and that's where C. Thomas Flood fits in. A would-be Kerouac from Incontinence, Indiana, Tommy (to his friends) is biding his time night-clerking and frozen-turkey bowling in a San Francisco Safeway. But all that changes when a beautiful undead redhead walks through the door...and proceeds to rock Tommy's life — and afterlife — in ways he never thought possible.

Review:

"Deft and funny." The New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

A romance novel like no other, this is the story of Jody, a beautiful redhead vampire, and Tommy, a supermarket manager. Theirs is a passionate tale of blood lust and blood loss, which continues in Moore's latest critically acclaimed bestseller You Suck.

A decidedly unconventional take on modern-day vampirism, this offbeat novel follows Jody, a twenty-something office worker in San Francisco who gets attacked, bitten, and buried under a dumpster while on the way home from work -- only to arise three days later with superhuman strength, incredibly acute senses, and a healthy appetite for blood. Yep, Jody's become part of San Francisco's OTHER alternative lifestyle -- and while there are definite upsides to being a vampire (muggers haven't met a true empowered woman until they run into Jody) Jody finds that her aversion to sunlight and unusual appetites also create some challenges. Enter C. Thomas Flood, Jody's new boyfriend/minion who caters to Jody's needs during the day and gets to enjoy some first-rate vampiric lovemaking at night. Great for vampire fans in the mood for something different than the usual brooding creatures of the night, Bloodsucking Fiends spawned two sequels, You Suck and Bite Me, which sadly proved diluted versions of the first book -- which continues to set a standard in vampire humor.

Lewd, brash, insightful and affectedly hilarious, Moore’s take on love is decidedly twisted and altogether awesome. Somewhere between Tom Robbins, Discworld and Ginsberg, you’ll find this depraved tale of love, loss and vampirism. And the sex wasn’t so bad either.

Very Funny. For anyone that loves vampire stories and murder mysteries this is the book for you. His other works like Lamb and Fluke are equally hilarious!
