Overview

“Christopher Moore is a very sick man, in the very best sense of the word.”

—Carl Hiaasen

 

The undead rise again in Bite Me, the third book in New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore’s wonderfully twisted vampire saga. Joining  his farcical gems Bloodsucking Fiends and You Suck, Moore’s latest in continuing story of young, urban, nosferatu style love, is no Twilight—but rather a tsunami of the irresistible outrageousness that has earned him the appellation, “Stephen King with a whoopee cushion and a double-espresso imagination” from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and inspired Denver’s Rocky Mountain News to declare him, “the 21st century’s best satirist.”

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A vampire cat is stalking San Francisco in Moore’s serviceable latest comic horror adventure (after You Suck), and the only humans who can take him down are goth girl Abby Normal and her brainiac boyfriend, Stephen “Foo Dog” Wong. They, in turn, call upon Abby’s masters, vampiric lovers Jody and Tommy, who were on the verge of breaking up until Abby decided to bronze them posed as Rodin’s The Kiss. Also in pursuit of the vampire cat and his minions are the Animals, the night stock crew at the Marina Safeway who hunt vampires in their spare time; a lunatic homeless man who calls himself the “Emperor of San Francisco”; a Japanese printmaker who wields a mean sword; and homicide detectives Rivera and Cavuto. Things become even more complicated with the arrival of three ancient vampires intent on getting some payback. The narrative could use trimming, and much of the humor seems recycled from Moore’s previous vampire tomes, though this won’t matter to the legions of fans who crave Moore’s trademark low horror and high camp. (Apr.)
Booklist
“Moore’s most hysterical ‘love story’ to date.”
Bookreporter.com
“I can’t emphasize enough how funny BITE ME is.”
Edmonton Journal
“Moore’s twisted take on the undead comes as a welcome respite from the recent spate of TV, film and book offerings to bombard us.”
Florida Times-Union
“Moore carved a niche in the horror-comedy genre, and anyone with a fiendish sense of humor will love his writing.”
Ottawa Citizen
“Moore proves he has few rivals on the humour-opus front with this high-larious romp that just might have driven the final nail into old Nosferatu’s coffin.”

This is a brilliant finale to Christopher Moore's hilarious vampire trilogy. Warning: do not read this somewhere you must remain quiet. I laughed out loud with every ridiculous twist and turn. I just love Moore's witty writing and laugh-out-loud humor.

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. Harriet Klausner

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.

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.

If you liked the move Zombieland, you will like this book. It is a different take on the vampire life, and will keep you laughing. I honestly picked this book up because it had such a unique looking cover. I was drawn into the story, and could not put it down until I had finished reading it. There was one draw back, I found out while I was reading this, that it was actually the third in this series. On the other hand this book, held up well in my opinion on its own. This is a book you could read without the others, but if you do read the other books it will increase the background of the book. If you are having a bad day this is the book to lift your spirts, and get you laughing again.

Christopher Moore has a great sense of humor. I find him to be a little dark and sarcastic. I find this book laugh out loud funny.

Christopher Moore is a genious. He blends horror with extreme laughter and the characters are so well written you cheer for them, cry for them, laugh at them and feel as if you know them.

Really good book. Will read again for sure. I love all of Christopher Moore's stuff. He is a talented writer and very entertaining.

When I picked up Moore's You Suck two years ago, I had no idea what kind of hilarity I was getting myself into. It became one of my favorite books of all time, and, when I found out about Bite Me, I was completely and utterly on the edge of my seat waiting for it. After devouring all 309 pages in the matter of two days, I found myself...rather disappointed. Abby annoyed the hell out of me, there wasn't nearly enough Animal action, and the ending was rather saddening. However, there are some very funny and very sweet moments that make it another Moore classic. So, I liked most of the book, up until around the end. AND I SWEAR TO GOD IF ABBY AND TOMMY END UP TOGETHER, I WILL MURDER SOMETHING SMALL AND CUTE.

The first 2 books were great and I'm looking forward to this one. The only problem is the price. The ebook version on Amazon is only 9.99 while the B&N version is over 16 bucks. That is ridiculous.

If you like Christopher Moore then this is another fun ride...and the conclusion to the story. If you don't know Moore, you can read this as a stand alone, but you might start with the first book "Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story"...then "You Suck" in order to get the full story. The audio versions of all three are great and the recurring and crossover characters are wonderful. While this isn't my favorite of Moore's works, it is a fun ride.

I love Christopher Moore but this book was soooooo terrible I could not read past the first 5 chapters. It is not funny nor even slightly romantic. It is a definite miss. It is written from the point of view of a teenager so a lot of "like" and dumb teen lingo and abbreviation.
