Ya’ll know I hate anything vampire, so I’m going out on a limb for this quirky story…
“Jody never asked to become a vampire. But when she wakes up under an alley Dumpster with a badly burned arm, an aching neck, superhuman strength, and a distinctly Nosferatuan thirst, she realizes the decision has been made for her.
Making the transition from the nine-to-five grind to an eternity of nocturnal prowlings is going to take some doing, however, and that’s where C. Thomas Flood fits in. A would-be Kerouac from Incontinence, Indiana, Tommy (to his friends) is biding his time night-clerking and frozen-turkey bowling in a San Francisco Safeway. But all that changes when a beautiful undead redhead walks through the door … and proceeds to rock Tommy’s life — and afterlife — in ways he never imagined possible.”

Ha ha! I had to do a double take. Never would have been a book I thought you’d pick out. 🙂April 7, 2018 at 5:57 pm #4885
I know, right!?! My step dad gave me a bunch of Neil Gaiman books, and these Christopher Moore books that he & my mom read. He said I might find them humorous and kind of irreverent, etc. About the Christopher Moore books, I said to him “are there actual vampires in these books?” Haha! He described them as being off-the-wall, so I was really looking to do something different. Definitely challenging myself with this one!April 15, 2018 at 5:12 pm #4914
I saw the thread title and stopped to think who might have been making this month’s pick, lol. Completely not what I expected.
I read this a few years ago but I don’t remember my thoughts other than maybe it wasn’t my favorite Moore book. Have to see if I did a review on GoodReads or not.April 19, 2018 at 12:36 pm #4921
I’m currently working on this book.
That’s cool you already read it Kat. Your homework is already done then 🙂 He has a new book out called “Noir” I think.April 20, 2018 at 9:42 am #4922
I’m bummed my library doesn’t have a copy of it.
How are you liking it so far?April 24, 2018 at 6:08 pm #4925
I’m liking it so far. It’s not “ha-ha” “laugh out loud” funny, but it’s definitely comical. Like a dark comedy. Which I really like. My issue has been struggling to find time to read this month, so my reading flow is super slow and it makes me feel like I’m going at a snail’s pace.April 25, 2018 at 9:42 am #4927
I ordered a used copy on Amazon. Just waiting for it to come in. 🙂 Hopefully it’ll come before this weekend since we’re headed to Lake Tahoe for a mini getaway.
