Book Review: Bite Me

Author: Christopher Moore
Title: Bite Me
Genre: Comedy Horror
ISBN: 9780751545449
‘Abby is dedicated to turning herself into a vampire. Her boyfriend Steve is researching a serum to turn the undead back into mortals.’


I didn’t realise this was Christopher Moore again! More than that, I didn’t realise that this book was the next one after You Suck! Imagine my glee when I open up the first pages, and find Abby Normal (most hilarious and emo-goth kid I’ve ever come across in all my reading career) recapping You Suck in her own fantastic style. And giving you a quiz afterwards! Seriously… when she says it, she’s not kidding; pay attention when you read this book!

This book had me rocking from start to finish. It was one of those that had me snickering in the canteen, some time bursting out loud in peals so outrageous that I didn’t really have an excuse. In the four days I spent with this book as much lunch time read, I hid in the corner and ducked my head, trying not to snicker too much, thusly snorting salad up my nose.

From start to finish, the tale is hilarious, with warm characters, absolutely bizarre twists and of course a vampire cat. Seriously… who wouldn’t LOVE a vampire cat? Well… maybe not this one.

And through it all, yes, it is actually a love story. Jody and Tommy trapped in bronze by their minion who ‘only wants them to be together forever’ are probably the only vampire couple to date that don’t make me want to barf my lunch for fear of being unable to digest the sparkles (bad for the liver, you know…) -____- In fact, this is probably the only book I can think of where a ‘cure’ for the vampire ‘virus’ didn’t burn me up with rage.

So yeah… I don’t know how coherent that was, but take this away with you; I loved this book!
Read it.

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.
