    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 read this for a study of using humor in writing. It had funny parts, but it was a bit crass for my tastes. Not sure I liked the story much either; the relationship, for one, was not believable. Or maybe believable, but very codependent or something. Something that you don't really want in a "love" story. I guess he was trying to be funny, but for me it still has to be good. ( )

After reading the second book "You suck" first by mistake, I went back to read this book in the first of the trilogy to fill in the missing holes. What a great funny story.

Jody, a young girl with her whole life ahead of her, has suddenly and without warning, become a vampire. While she goes through her transition with no help from any other vampires, she learns by making mistakes and getting into trouble.

She needs someone to help her do her daytime work, and C. Thomas Flood just falls into her lap a if he was destined to be with her. Tommy may not be the most sensible young man, but he does what he can with what he has to please Jody and accommodate her in any way she wants.

This book has everything you'd ever need in a book, paranormal, intrigue, mystery, humor, thrill, and excitement. I wish I could praise this book more than I already have, I just absolutely love it! Definitely a 6/5.

This is unlike any other vampire book out there. It's funny, witty, and Christopher Moore has an amazing dry sense of humor. I have loved every single one of his books, and this one was no exception. I follow Christopher Moore and look forward to all his upcoming books. He's very talented. I find myself reading his books over and over, and they never get old. ( )

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. ( )

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.
