  1. Cached Thread Hazel 11th October 2006 11:33 AM Bloodsucking Fiends Amazon Synopsis - Jody never asked to become a vampire. But when she wakes up under an alley Dumpster with a badly burned arm, an aching neck, superhuman strength, and a distinctly Nosferatuan thirst, she realises the decision has been made for her. Making the transition from the nine-to-five grind to an eternity of nocturnal prowlings is going to take some doing, however, and that's where C. Thomas Flood fits in. A would-be Kerouac from Incontinence, Indiana, Tommy (to his friends) is biding his time night-clerkin
  2. This book follows straight on from You Suck, but being the last book in the trilogy wraps things up a little more tightly. This time around there are vampire cats, vampire rats, vampire parrots (briefly), squirt guns of vampire dissolver, a samurai swordsman, and the usual cast of characters, as well as the reappearance of Elijah's vampire 'children', and a cameo by Kona, the faux white rasta from Fluke. . Moore has perfected Abby Normals hilariously rude slang, and the plot zips right along. He has a real talent for both situational comedy, and comedic description. And this novel managed to
  3. I guess I'll put You Suck by Christopher Moore in this category since the first book in the trilogy is here, but this is not a horror novel. Comic fantasy is what it really is. This book takes off the day after Bloodsucking Fiends ends. Jody has just turned Tommy into the Vampyre Flood, and Elijah is still encased in bronze, although no one will be surprised that he won't be for long. Tommy soon recruits a new minion to replace himself, a perky goth with Valley Girl tendencies named Allison, aka Abby Normal. And the Animals have come back from an Elijah's-stolen-art financed spree in Vegas w
  4. I've just read this as a BookCrossing bookring. The tale of a scientist who is researching whale song in Hawaii. One day, while photographing a whale's flukes, instead of the usual patterns, he sees the words "Bite Me". And then it just gets weird. The book left me somehow disappointed but it. I had only read one other book by Christopher Moore and that was "Bloodsucking Fiends" which was very funny and quite moving. This was only funny at the start and was not moving but was clever. That wasn't enough though. I'll have to read more of Christopher Moore's books…
  5. Cached Thread Starry 22nd March 2006 02:57 PM Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal I read this book a couple of years ago, but am interested to see if anyone else has sampled the delights of a Chris Moore book. He is very funny, this one in particular had me laughing out loud. The premise is this: what did Jesus do between being born and overturning the moneylending tables? Perhaps he went on a journey to find the wise men and discover his destiny with his best mate Biff. It is the coming-of-age story of the Son of God. I like Moore's writing style,
