This is a wild biting satire that takes no prisoners as a vampire cat wrecks havoc on the City by the bay

The streets of San Francisco are not safe as a predatory vampire prowls them looking for prey. No one is safe from this feline. Perhaps the only humans who might end the biting cat's reign of terror are goth Abby Normal and her brilliant boyfriend, Stephen "Foo Dog" Wong although others like the Animals of Marina Safeway and the Emperor of San Francisco hunt the beast.

Abby and Stephen visit her Masters, vampire couple Jody and Tommy to obtain their help and guidance. The pair owes Abby for keeping them together when she made them immortal with her rendition of The Kiss starring the vamps as the couple. As they work to stop the sharp toothed cat, the team runs into three visiting ancient vamps with teeth to grind, the other hunters and SFPD homicide detectives Rivera and Cavuto who want all of them off the streets of San Francisco so the cops can solve the case.

This is a wild biting satire that takes no prisoners as a vampire cat wrecks havoc on the City by the bay. The story line is amusing and fast-paced but also contains too many cat lives that diverse from the prime plot of hunting the hunter who hunts those hunting it. Fans of the Normal acerbic paranormal tales (see After You Suck) will laugh out loud at Bite Me" A Love Story.

Christopher Moore is my all time favorite author, next to Dr. Seuss. He is hilarious, witty, and says f*cking France. What moore (like the play or words?) can a girl want? (fine accident i left there realizing the play on words)

I bought "Bite Me" since I've loved everything by Moore so far. I liked "You Suck" the least out of his library until I read "Bite Me". How is it a love story anymore when no ones in love?

The problem, in my opinion, is that You Suck and Bite Me were demanded by fans. Because of that it wasn't what HE wanted to write which made it lesser then the predecessors. You suck still made me laugh the whole book through. Bite me however only had one scene where someone was saved because a cat humped a human, well vampire.

Anyways this is not a book to buy, to read once from the library. However, still buy it because Christopher Moore is so fantastic that he should get more money and more control over his books. He deserves it.

However, I would tell you to read any other book by him before this one, but what can I say? I'm a groupie. I will buy anything by this man to support his money but I cannot sit here and say this book is the best.

By the way, I hate vampire stuff, but Bloodsucking Fiends, it didn't matter.

    Not good

    I am a huge fan of Christopher Moore however this book is not good. I didn't even finish it. I couldn't stand how almost the whole thing was seen through Abbey's P.O.V. She is annoying and it's just too hard to read.

    Not his best

    I love Christopher Moore and typically devour his books in a few readings. I was really looking forward to this book as a continuation of a great series. However, it was pretty disappointing. The story was slower moving and not nearly as gripping as past books have been. I found myself putting it down much more easily than his other books. The use of different characters was nice, except that Abby's sections were almost painful to read. To be honest, I never loved the character to begin with, but reading things written from her point of view was made even worse by the voice created for her. I understand why her voice was the way it was, but it was truly annoying to have to read it anyway. The only good things I can really say about this book is that the quippy quick wit and (mostly) great characters were still there and it provided a nice wrapping up of the series.

    I am hoping that now that this series is wrapped, the next Christopher Moore book will be back to his usually quality. If you're looking to get into Christopher Moore (and he truly is fantastic usually) then start with another one of his books.

    Provides some closure

    My thoughts...It is been a while since I visited the world of Christopher Moore. It is a place of quick wit, snarky behavior, and snappy characters. This book starts off with Abby and her high-tech boyfriend living in the loft. Things get a bit hairy when Chet, the vampire cat, starts making more vampire animals. The town of San Francisco seems to be under attack. Readers will get to see their favorites, including Jody, Tommy, and the Animals. We also get to meet Okata, who turned out to be one of the deepest characters in the book.

    The plot of the story moved at a slow pace for me, it was too easy to put down. The Vampire animals was funny at first, but quickly seemed to consume most of the book. The POV jumped around a lot which left me a bit dizzy. I had a very hard time reading Abby's chapters. She is a young character, with obvious identity issues, but her vocabulary went from funny to irritating withing a few chapters.

    Overall, I am glad I read this final book in the trilogy. It did provide some much needed and long-awaited closure. If you plan on reading Bite Me, read the other two in the series first and read them together if you can. The last book would be most enjoyable if you were already in the rhythm of Moore's writing. The series is sure to provide some good laughs and a fresh look at the Vampire scene.
