The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, 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. See, while some lovers were born to run, Jody and Tommy were born to bite. Well, reborn, that is, now that they're vampires. Good thing theirs is an undying love, since their Goth Girl Friday, Abby Normal, imprisoned them in a bronze statue.
Abby wants to be a bloodsucking fiend, too, but right now she's really busy with other stuff, like breaking in a pair of red vinyl thigh-high Skankenstein(r) platform boots and wrangling her Ph.D.-candidate boyfriend, Steve (the love monkey). And then there's that vampire cat Chet, who's getting bigger and smarter--and thirstier--by the minute. Abby thought she and Steve could handle the kitty cat on their own, mais non . . .
Before you can say "OMG! WTF?" Tommy and Jody are sprung from captivity, and join forces with Abby, Steve, the frozen-turkey-bowling Safeway crew, the Emperor of San Francisco and his trusty dogs Lazarus and Bummer, Abby's gay Goth friend Jared, and SF's finest Cavuto and Rivera to hunt big cat and save the city. And that's when the fun really begins.

1 . as long as you're not afraid of spunk...
Posted January 16, 2011 by Meghan , HendersonvilleThis book is insane, random, and ludicrous. This book is wonderful. Christopher Moore's writing style is not entirely unlike that of Douglas Adams (author of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy). He has a knack for taking everyday actions and putting them in a different light; he makes the most simple and innocent act seem ludicrous. Although some things in this book were a little over-the-top, I admire Moore as an amazing writer and comic. As long as you're not afraid of cussing and a whole lot of sex, this book is a good read.
2 . Christopher Moore Can Bite Me
Posted July 16, 2010 by Noelle , Dublin, CAChristopher Moore you can Bite Me for little Abby Von Normal tell half the story. Her appearance in the other 2 is funny but page after page of Kayso and F*socks made me want to put it down and forget it. The only saving grace is that Jody and Tommy are great characters and I wanted to see how they ended up.
I am normally a great fan of Christopher Moore. If you read the other 2 books, you will probably want to read it, If you haven't, start with Blood Sucking Fiends which is a great book. Put this one back unless you like reading in the voice of an obnoxious teenager
3 . Very Funny
