Synopsis

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.

Wearing a flannel shirt at a nightclub, Tommy winds up looking “like he’d shown up at the sacrificial mass of the damned ready to fix the dishwasher.” Although constructing plots is as much of a nuisance for Mr. Moore as it is a necessity, “You Suck” puts Tommy and Jody in the midst of nicely cr...

(As with many of Moore's books, it's better not to ask too many questions.) At least they've got one thing going for them: Abby Normal, a Goth teenager who signs up to be their minion and whose diary entries find the eerie intersection of Brontë, Buffy, and MySpace.

The Bookbag

He was after all a friend of the legendary Oscar Wilde, and therefore presumably shared the sense of humour of the great wit of the age, and would love the absurd lengths that Christopher Moore extrapolates the vampire legends.
