    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? by Tom Holt (Dr.Science)
    Dr.Science: The English author Tom Holt is relatively unknown in America, but very popular in England. If you enjoy Jasper Fforde or Christopher Moore you will most certainly enjoy Tom Holt's wry sense of English humor and the absurd. He has written a number of excellent books including Expecting Someone Taller, and Flying Dutch, but they may be difficult to find at your library or bookstore.… (more)

I'm not usually one for vampire books, but I enjoyed this book. The characters were well developed and likeable. I wish the cover art wasn't so dull, and showed more of the characters. I thought this book was cute and easy to read. It was nice to hear how Jody and Thomas were falling in love, and the threat of the vampire hunting them. I can not wait to read the other books in the series, and see how this love story unfolds. ( )

This turned out to be such a quick read. Before I knew it, the end had come long before I was ready for it, which left me glad that there was a second in the series, which I hope to start soon. This was a solid book, very humorous with a great flow. The characters seem ludicrous and larger than life, but at the same time, grounded in the reality of their world. Vampire Jody struggles with her very human issues while having to navigate through this new nocturnal life, which makes her so much more relatable than a character who only worries about their new vampiric life and how to survive. Jody has a suffocating mother to placate, a confused human minion/boyfriend/roommate to maneuver, and an array of self image issues to wade through before even touching her possible immortality. Meanwhile, human minion Tommy seems more than willing, at first, to completely forget about his own issues of inadequacies and loneliness, preferring instead,to deal with Jody’s condition. And then there is her mysterious creator who keeps constant tabs on her….

All in all, it is a very quirky, very fun and lighthearted book. A refreshing read for those tired of the gloomy and brooding bloodsuckers saturating the market. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060735414, Paperback)

Here's something different: a vampire novel that's light, funny, and not at all hackneyed. Between scenes of punks bowling frozen turkeys on the graveyard shift in a supermarket, or snapping turtles loose in a loft and gnawing on designer shoes, this novel has comic charm to spare. But it also packs an appealingly downbeat message about the consumer culture: Becoming a vampire has given the twentysomething heroine "a crampless case of rattlesnake PMS"--a grumpy mood in which she realizes that she can dress to the nines as a "Donner Party Barbie" and still end up disillusioned and unhappy, just another slacker doing her own laundry and watching sucky TV 'til the sun rises.
