Sometimes you have to wade through the offensive (racial stereotypes, homophobia) to get to the funny. Can't quite tell whether the "ironic" bigotry stems from the author or the characters.

To make much sense and really be any fun, this vampire trilogy HAS to be read in order: (1) Bloodsucking Fiends (2) You Suck (3) Bite Me; with A Dirty Job as an interval between (2) & (3).

The last of the series, this book does wrap up the stories but did leave me asking myself what happens to them now. I almost feel that Chris Moore left an opening for a sequel because you don't really know that they will be happy. It does have some really funny scenes, he does know how to describe things.

I've laughed out loud at a few of Moore's other books, but no this one. A giggle here or there at best. Lowbrow and infantile in spots. A mediocre book at best.

The final book in Moore's Vampire Trilogy--preceded by "Bloodsucking Fiends" and "You Suck." This is the weakest of the three books, but it's still very funny. The book begins with a 20-page review of the series so far, a wasted section for those of us who have eagerly read the first two books. At the heart of the conflict is Chet, the huge cat who was introduced in the previous book. Chet is now a vampire cat with his own fangy army, and he must be stopped before he clears all of the street people out of San Francisco. We get too much of Abby Normal and not enough hilarious Tommy--Jody situations in this book, but I was still hooked to the very end. The funniest parts: Abby's "I'm a Nosferatu now" scene; various scenes with Foo, Jared, and the rats; and Jared's over-caffeinated, bronze-smashing dance.

I love Christopher Moore, and I do think that it's time for him to reap some serious moolah from the current vampire craze, since he wrote the first book in this series in 1995. Bite Me: A Love Story brings back the casts of Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story and You Suck: A Love Story, as well as a pack of vampire kitties.

Mostly narrated by Abigail Von Normal, "Emergency Back-Up Mistress of the Greater Bay Area Night," the book is great fun to read, and made me LOL repeatedly. Capturing both the drama and the humor of a teenage goth girl's journal, Moore describes another series of hilarious adventures pitting good vampires against bad.

The careful research and literary and historical references of Fool and Lamb are absent (thank goodness, since Anne Rice got that series of vampire novels out of the way a few years back now). Actually, that's probably not true - Moore has to have spent an inordinate amount of time on myspace to have captured the elegant inanity of the voice of Abby in such a perfect way.

Another good tale of Tommy and Jody mostly through Abby Normal, wannabe minion of the dark lord Tommy. It is a good read and I think the last in the series.

This is another well written novel of humor and guileby the crafty Moore. Better if read after You Suck and Blood Sucking Fiends. 9 of 10 stars

Another great offering from Christopher Moore. I was so happy to see the return of the charactors from You Suck. This one erased my dissatisfactin with his last book, Fool. Back to fine form indeed!
