To make much sense and really be any fun, this vampire trilogy HAS to be read in order: (1) Bloodsucking Fiends (2) You Suck (3) Bite Me; with A Dirty Job as an interval between (2) & (3).

Funny book on a known theme. Enjoyable read. Sympathetic characters. All in all an original book from a new author (for me). Many more to follow.

A different kind of vampire book, it had me laughing out loud at some of the descriptions of scenes. Doesn't take itself seriously in the least! I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys comedy with life changing events.

I can see why he has been compared with Hiaasen but I found this book just mildly amusing. The Emperor is far & away the most entertaining character so I hope he's in all the books. An original take on the vampire theme.

First in Moore's Vampire Trilogy, followed by "You Suck" and "Bite Me." This book begins the story of Jody Stroud who gets turned into a vampire and left under a dumpster. Jody's life with her minion, the hapless Tommy Flood (new in town from Incontinence, Indiana), is hilariously filled with quirky characters, witty dialogue, and plenty of supernatural adventures. Funniest parts: Tommy's adventures with the Wongs; Tommy's reminisces about his home life back in Indiana; the Animals' recreational activities (e.g., turkey bowling, soapsud-skiing behind the self-propelled floor-scrubber); Tommy's vampire research, especially his experiments on Jody to determine the limits of her vampiric traits; and the turtle's attack on Jody's pretentious mother.

Hilarious. I kept bugging my husband with passages I just had to share.
