    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)

Jodi is attacked on her way home from work one night. She has no idea how much this attack will change her life, or rather, her death. Tommy is going to be a writer, so he heads to San Francisco for adventure. He meets Jodi and adventure finds him!

I had no idea how much I would enjoy this story. The author uses the language in a delightful way. I love the homage to the Emperor of San Francisco. In fact I love all his characters, or if I don't love them, at least I believe they could exist. The funny predicaments were delightful. At least half of my enjoyment was due to the narrator, Susan Bennett. She was supreme. This book does include explicit language and situations, so if you don't tolerate those in a story, this one isn't for you, but I'm going to have to find the next in the series. ( )

Not nearly as good as the other two I've read by Moore, but still pretty entertaining. ( )

This is my second Christopher Moore book, and I think I have to say I wasn't as impressed as Lamb...but it was nevertheless a fun read. ( )

Evidently, reading the older Moore books is a mistake, because the newer ones were better. Comparing this book to A Dirty Job, I agree. Though the book was humorous at times and I liked the riff on the vampire motif, the book seemed to drag a bit. It felt like something I should really like and yet, couldn't quite get into.

Perhaps You Suck! is better? ( )

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.
