2.5/5
It's not a bad book at all. So, why such a lacklustre rating? Hear me out.

Ultimately, The Wannabe Vampire tries really hard to appease everyone and turns something mysterious and dangerous into a pretty suburban, uninspiring creature.

The book really needs to decide where the writing style wants to go otherwise it stays a pleasant but forgettable read. Does it want to become a comedy of mistakes full of dark gory humour like Shaun of The Dead or Zombieland? Or does it want to tackle extreme violence and how normal people cope with it?

There are bits in Alex Taylor's writing that can be developed into something awesome, something that would inspire strong emotions (both positive and negative) but the potential is not realised yet. The perv obsessed with vampirism and haunted by a ghost was disgustingly good, for example, but his actions were too soft to be a real threat to Michael and Kari...

I would like to wait and reserve my opinion on this author until the next book. With respect.
