Honestly, I thought the book was just so-so. I think my problem is that I don't enjoy comedic writing very much (the only series that I laughed through was The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy). I read a Bill Bryson book a few years ago and really didn't like it. I chuckled a few times while reading Bloodsucking Fiends and enjoyed the story to a certain extent, but I didn't bust a gut laughing while reading it. Maybe I have no sense of humor!
The story is about a guy named Tommy who moves to San Francisco from Indiana to become a writer. There he meets Jody who has recently been turned into a vampire by an unknown assailant. The two become a couple and go through all those things that couples go through--testing to see if your mate can turn to mist and a bat, trying to avoid becoming a regular meal for your mate, and so on. While all this is happening, dead bodies seem to follow the two and they begin to suspect that Jody's vampire assailant is the one leaving them. Of course the police get involved and the two have to figure out how to keep Tommy from going to jail or worse, end up dead.
The book is a fun, light read that you can finish quickly. I enjoyed it enough to read the sequel, You Suck. If you are looking for something quick and humorous, you might check it out at the library. It's not a waste of time and is light reading before bedtime--and it's not scary at all!
