"You bitch, you killed me. You suck!"
Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks.
Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody—the woman of his dreams—is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.
For some couples, the whole biting-and-blood thing would have been a deal breaker. But Tommy and Jody are in love, and they vow to work through their issues. Like how much Jody should teach Tommy about his new superpowers (and how much he needs to learn on his own). Plus there's Tommy's cute new minion, sixteen-year-old goth girl Abby Normal. (Well, someone has to run errands during daylight hours!)
Making the relationship work, however, is the least of Jody and Tommy's problems. Word has it that the vampire who nibbled on Jody wasn't supposed to be recruiting any new members into the club. Even worse, Tommy's erstwhile turkey-bowling pals are out to get him, at the urging of a blue-dyed Las Vegas call girl named (duh) Blue.
And that really sucks.

Christopher Moore is the author of fourteen previous novels, including Lamb, The Stupidest Angel, Fool, Sacré Bleu, A Dirty Job, and The Serpent of Venice.From AudioFile:
Susan Bennetts sassy reading is a perfect fit for Moores satirical story and sarcastic dialogue. Nineteen-year-old Tommy has turned into a vampire, and his sexy girlfriend tries to put up with his incompetence and fawning while shes on to more important issues--like fleeing from Elijah, an elder vampire, and dealing with a whole cast of wacky San Francisco personalities. In a fun way, the book addresses the realities of its absurd construct. Take, for example, the slapstick scene in which Tommy goes on his first blood hunt and finds a promising fat cat but has hilarious difficulty keeping the unkempt animals fur out of his mouth. Bennett reads like a stand-up comic, issuing both straight lines and zingers with perfect timing. S.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
