Christopher Moore is by far one of my favorite authors. He is wickedly funny and extremely witty. His sense of humor is contagious. Blood Sucking Fiends is a great read; I couldn't put it down. Sexy red vampires, purple coffin loving goth girls, turkey bowling and laugh after laugh. What is not to love?

After reading another of Christopher Moore's books, i had to have another, and this was an excellent choice. It was entertaining from start to finish, and even now, long after I'm done reading it. Beautiful vampire in San Francisco recruits innocent country boy to help her understand what she is. A fantastic read!!

I love Christopher Moore's novels and this is one of my favorites. Hilarious story about a young woman who gets bitten by a vampire, handed a wad of cash, and left of figure out how to survive in modern day San Francisco. Luckily for her, an intrepid grocery store clerk becomes her ally.
by Publishers Weekly,
"Moore's seemingly off-the-cuff narrative and plotting fail to deliver on an imaginative beginning. Despite offering some amusing moments, the author gives little depth to his motley cast of characters and wavers awkwardly between fable and satire."
by Library Journal,
"Anne Rice this isn't. Filled with oddball characters, clever dialog, and hilarious situations that are Moore's trademarks, this delightful tale deserves a spot on all popular fiction shelves. Highly recommended."
With a psychedelic inventiveness that invites comparisons with Kurt Vonnegut and Tom Robbins, the author of Coyote Blue spins a tale of vampires on the loose in San Francisco — a love story readers can really sink their teeth into.
