Review: Bite Me: A Love Story by Christopher Moore

  Bite Me

Synopsis from Goodreads: The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, and my manga-haired love monkey stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public.

Whoa. And this is a love story?

Yup. 'Cept there's no whining. But there is everybody's favorite undead couple, Tommy and Jody, who've just escaped from imprisonment in a bronze statue. And now that they're out they've joined forces with Abby, her boyfriend Steve, the frozen-turkey-bowling Safeway crew, the Emperor of San Francisco and his trusty dogs Lazarus and Bummer, gay Goth guy Jared, and SF's finest Cavuto and Rivera to hunt the big cat and save the city. Really.

This is the third and final book in Christopher Moore's vampire comedy series and it is the best one. You want to know why? Two words:

Vampire. Cats.

That's right. Jody, Tommy, and Abby fight an army of vampire cats in the book. (Plus, some evil older vampires.) And it's glorious. It's so absurd, so ridiculous, so insane but it works! It's hilarious and so much fun. 

I love how Abby is basically the main character in this novel. She is the most fun, compelling character so it makes sense. Now I know what the first book was missing - Abby!

This series is definitely for people who are looking for a different sort of vampire story. It's not horror and it's definitely not romance. (Fans of traditional romance novels will absolutely hate the ending.) I liked the ending, however. It was a fitting, bittersweet ending. There may have even been some feels involved.
