I've had this book sitting on my bookshelf for years, finally decided it was time. Too bad I let it sit for so long this was a very good bad-vampire story.

Some reviews of this book complained that Claire made lots of really dumb decisions throughout the story but I believe the same can be said of many characters in Steven King's Salem's Lot. Glass Houses in ways did remind me of parts of Salem's Lot.

I give this book about a 41/2 out of 5. This is pretty good in my estimation. My only hang up was that the character of Claire was a bit immature but falls within the parameters of a 16 year old. This book is about Claire, who is a sixteen year old college freshman in a little town known as Morganville. After a particularly awful bout of bullying by a girl named Monica, Claire decides that she needs to move out of the dorms before she is killed by Monica and her cronies. She finds an ad in the paper to be the fourth roommate in a house off-campus. And this begins her adventure into the world of the Morganville Vampire population and everything that ensues thereafter. This really is a good book and I really enjoyed it. I had read this book a while ago, but listened to it on audiobook yesterday and today. That is how much I really did enjoy this book. I also have a tendency to read books to fast and eventually forgets what I read previously. ( )
