Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore

This was one of the first Christopher Moore books I read a few years back. A few of my friends were raving over this author and well, I was skeptical. Looking back at my review of this one at first, I seemed less than impressed, but willing to try another book or two by the author. I’m certainly glad I kept up! Christopher Moore takes a certain sense of humor, a suspension of all belief and a love of the corny. This audiobook did not disappoint. The narrator does an amazing job with the voice of Jody, the expression they are able to convey does the character’s exasperated voice a LOT of justice. I was less in love with the way she handled Tommy, but he was kind of young a huge dork, so I’ll forgive. Either way, if you are a Christopher Moore fan, this is definitely worth listening to. I you aren’t, then… well… get on the fangirl team already!

Jody never asked to become a vampire. But when she wakes up under an alley Dumpster with a badly burned arm, an aching back, 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 thought possible.
