You Suck by Christopher Moore

You Suck by Christopher Moore

This book is round two of Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore brings us up to date on what is going on with Jody and Tommy and their vampire-filled world. Jody has recently turned Tommy and, unlike last novel where Jody was trying to get used to being a vampire, we now have Tommy trying to get used to being a vampire.

The two try to find a minion to do their daytime bidding, try to determine how to drink coffee without throwing it up, figure out what to do with their bronzed statue of an evil vampire, and deal with the animals and their drinking and smurf-ish hooker problems. Yes, if you haven't read this book it sounds a bit ridiculous. Even having read the book, it is a bit ridiculous.

My understanding is that Moore only wrote this book to shut up his fans who kept asking for a sequel. It didn't seem as well planned out as the first one, and was a little too similar. Moore reused plot lines and solutions that the characters from the first novel had come up with again in the second novel. While it was fun and light, it's not one of Moore's better works.

First Line: "You bitch, you killed me!"
