4.5 Not Moore's best work, but definitely enjoyable and a little weird.

Cruder than I remember, but an enjoyable re-read. Not as fun as Noir and Razzmatazz.

Well, I found this one in my wife’s Audible library, I didn’t know it was number two in a series of books. Well, every time this happens, I’m reminded why I avoid series books like the plague. I absolutely hated the two lead characters; I was hoping that at least they would both be dead by the end of the book but then I found out it was part of a series about these two unlikeable idiots and was about to DNF this one then Abby Normal was introduced and I decided to keep going. Frankly, I wish the author had decided to focus exclusively on her the whole book rather than what he did especially since I didn’t give a rat’s ass about the characters that were carried over from the other book (Blood-Sucking Fiends I guess). Oh, and the author spits in the reader’s face by not ending the damned story! The book just stops all the while a big fight/congregation of all the characters is seemingly building. Seriously, avoid this garbage and if you don’t just read the Abby Normal narrated parts.
To be clear, I do not recommend this one at all. A much better take on this type of story is An Unattractive Vampire by Jim McDoniel. This book SUCKS!

DNF, I'm too afraid of hurting myself due to excessive eye-rolling and facepalming.
