Best Friend Guest Review - You Suck: A Love Story by Christopher Moore

It is time for another edition of Best Friend Guest Review with my lovely best friend JTR! If you missed the first one check it out here and as always leave her lots of love and encouragement so she comes back for more.

Welcome to another edition of BFG Reviews, no unfortunately not written by the Big Friendly Giant, instead you just get stuck with me: JTR.

If you love vampire stories and love books that openly mock pretty much everything than you will love You Suck: A Love Story by Christopher Moore. In his sequel to Bloodsucking Fiends, (which is a marvelous book that you really must read first) Moore continues the story of C. Thomas Flood, a young aspiring novelist who moves to San Fransisco to start his writing career, but instead meets his first girlfriend: the vampire Jody. Humorous antics unwind as this now vampire couple finds a teenage wannabe Gothic minion, fight off a dyed-blue prostitute, and go through the usual relationship ups and downs with some added undead complications.

This is definitely not a YA book. Rated R for sure. Moore's blunt humor leaves no taboo topic untouched. Half the chapters are written from the perspective of Abby Normal, a 16-year-old who is secretly warm and cuddly but puts up a tough wants-to-be-a-vampire front to remain edgy. Moore's ability to get in the head of this off-the-wall character is the true gem of this novel.

Moore plays with the traditional vampire lore and bends the rules to fit into this modern day retelling. This is not your average Twilight or even Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it's more something that makes fun of them. But as someone who loves those vampire tales, I still found You Suck entertaining.
I even enjoyed the bittersweet non-ending that makes me wonder if Moore's love story might turn into a trilogy.

The opening line of the book is one of the best quotes: "You bitch, you killed me. You suck!"

I have yet to read anything by this author but I've heard both good and bad things about this particular book. I'd really like to try one of his books eventually.

Ah, a hilarious vampire book. So tired of the twilight knock offs--I've gotta check this one out.
