Bite Me: A Love Story

Bite Me - Christopher Moore Where do I start? I have not laughed so hard since I read the first book in the series, Bloodsucking Fiends. I hadn't even realized that Bite Me was part of a trilogy and that this was the third book in the series. It really didn't matter that I read the books out of order.What makes this book special is the attention to all of the zany, eccentric, and absolutely crazy characters. You have humans, and all sorts of vampires -- vampire cats, rats, and parrots. The humans in Bite Me include a homeless man that calls himself the Emperor of San Francisco, 2 police officers, and the Animals who work the night shift restocking the local Safeway. Special mention goes to Abigail von Normal or Abby Normal, a teenage nosferatu wannabe. Most of the book is told from her point of view, in her chronicles. There are plenty of vampires to keep us entertained. Chet the shaved vampire cat is a force to be reckoned with. Because of Chet, there are hordes of vampire kitties stalking and killing in the streets of San Francisco. There are even vampire parrots, but they were not smart enough to stay out of the sun, so they burned up. Abby's boyfriend, Steve, experiments and creates a lot of vampire rats. Mayhem ensues... and there are new uses for shop/vacs.Christopher Moore's writing style is witty, understated, comical and fun. He varies the point of view, putting the reader into each character's mind, with hilarious results. He captures Abby's teen-speak very well. Chapter 2 was completely unexpected, a test on Chapter 1.I recommend this book to anyone who needs some comic relief and vampires in one book. It's a lot of fun.
