15. "You Suck: A Love Story" ~ Christopher Moore


Christopher Moore ranks up there with Carl Hiaasen when it comes to a sick sense of humor and quirky details, but Hiaasen still has him beat at building suspense.

It didn't matter in this book.

The first three chapters were so funny that I snickered out loud, then read it to my husband. But I shouldn't act surprised; Moore had me at Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal.

In You Suck, a vampire turns her boyfriend into one so that they will be together 4-evah. Add a huge cat, a smurf-blue hooker, a freaky 500-year-old vampire, a mini-Goth minion, and a team of frozen turkey bowlers. Shake well and serve.

Is this literature at its finest? No, but it's damn funny and entertaining.

4.0 out of 5.0 Blood Clots.
