Book Review: You Suck

No, I wasn't insulting the book review, the title of the book is actually called "You Suck" by Christopher Moore, and if you haven't guessed it yet, it's about Vampires.

I think this is one of the funniest books that I've read in a very long time.  I think one of the most difficult things in writing is comedy as once it's on paper, it's up to the reader to supply the timing.  Most authors fail at this, in my opinion, but not Christopher Moore.  When I was reading this in the dressing room between shows, all the other performers kept asking me, "What are you laughing at?"

Being undead sucks. Literally.
Just ask C. Thomas Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too. For some couples, the whole biting-and-blood thing would have been a deal breaker. But Tommy and Jody are in love, and they vow to work through their issues.
But word has it that the vampire who initially nibbled on Jody wasn't supposed to be recruiting. Even worse, Tommy's erstwhile turkey-bowling pals are out to get him, at the urging of a blue-dyed Las Vegas call girl named (duh) Blue.
And that really sucks.
