    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)

Read a long time ago. The author is funny and most of his books are entertaining and have a very unique writing style that is bound to make you laugh. Nothing too profound though. ( )

I’ve always been intrigued by the covers of Christopher Moore’s novels so I decided to pick one up, and I couldn’t possibly be more disappointed. There wasn’t a single aspect of the humor in this novel that I found to be the least bit funny. Perhaps I just wasn’t the target audience for the novel since I don’t often read humor novels, but I just didn’t get it. It’s like being at a party with a person who is really trying hard to be funny, but nothing they say can even get a chuckle out of you.

The story and elements of the story were so silly that they just seemed kind of dumb, such as the blue prostitute, the stoner vampire hunters who worked the night shift at a grocery store, a homeless guy with a fat cat. I just didn’t get any of these things. I can tell these novels are popular and if they work for you, more power to you, but as for me, this is the first and last Christopher Moore novel that I will read.

Fun light hearted vampires story. It actually is a love story. Was my first foray into Christopher Moore's books and apparently this one is a sequel. Still a good read in it's own right but they make numerous references to what has happened before.

This one has the two lead characters who are vampires both recently turned exploring there new lives together. The "Animals" who have also come into a lot of money have spent there time in Las Vegas where they have hooked up with a prostitute named Blue as she has colored her skin blue.

The Animals learn that their former leader has been turned into a vampire and go on the hunt for him. Blue on the other hand has other ideas for him in mind. She wants the gift of eternal life. This leads to a number of new vampires being created which causes problems with the old vampire who has been resurrected after being mistaken for a living statue in a big city plaza. ( )

I learned my lesson years ago never to read Christopher Moore in public. All I have to say about YOU SUCK is that the scene with the cat had me in tears. ( )

Highly entertaining, an excellent sequel, and a good palate-cleanser after the more complex and daunting "Little, Big". Recommended for a quick read and a fun time. ( )

As with his best work, there’s a fundamental sweetness beneath the antics. And the characters are developed with real affection. That most of them are dead is never allowed to seem sad. And for parasitical bloodsuckers, they do remarkably little harm.

Susan Bennetts' sassy reading is a perfect fit for Moores satirical story and sarcastic dialogue.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060590300, Paperback)

Being undead sucks. Literally.

Just ask C. Thomas Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too. For some couples, the whole biting-and-blood thing would have been a deal breaker. But Tommy and Jody are in love, and they vow to work through their issues.

But word has it that the vampire who initially nibbled on Jody wasn't supposed to be recruiting. Even worse, Tommy's erstwhile turkey-bowling pals are out to get him, at the urging of a blue-dyed Las Vegas call girl named (duh) Blue.

And that really sucks.
