"You Suck: a Love Story" by Christopher Moore was really a surprise. I found it a hilarious and sometimes touching as the story of urban vampires in San Francisco who discover how to be vampires, how to drink coffee, and how to stay alive...er dead...er alive. The Animals, a group of Safeway stock boys, and vampire hunters, find true love with a blue hooker, who takes all their money and joins the boys in the hunt for the vampire lovers, Jody and Tommy. She wants them for a different reason. The odd characters, cool language, and vivid images brought to mind make this a fun romp. After reading "serious" vampire stories for much of my life, I really enjoyed this refreshing change of pace. Now I need to catch up..."Bloodsucking Fiends" here I come.
