You Suck

by Christopher Moore

January 16, 2007 | Hardcover

You Suck is rated 3.8846 out of 5 by 26.

"You bitch, you killed me. You suck!"

Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks.

Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody—the woman of his dreams—is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

For some couples, the whole biting-and-blood thing would have been a deal breaker. But Tommy and Jody are in love, and they vow to work through their issues. Like how much Jody should teach Tommy about his new superpowers (and how much he needs to learn on his own). Plus there's Tommy's cute new minion, sixteen-year-old goth girl Abby Normal. (Well, someone has to run errands during daylight hours!)

Making the relationship work, however, is the least of Jody and Tommy's problems. Word has it that the vampire who nibbled on Jody wasn't supposed to be recruiting any new members into the club. Even worse, Tommy's erstwhile turkey-bowling pals are out to get him, at the urging of a blue-dyed Las Vegas call girl named (duh) Blue.

And that really sucks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I enjoyed it You Suck / Christopher Moore 3.5 stars *****SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE FIRST BOOK IN THE SERIES***** Jody has just turned her boyfriend Tommy into a vampire. They have managed to encase the ancient vampire who made her, Elijah, in bronze. Jody and Tommy had promised the cops that they would leave town, but they don't want to... plus they need a minion to help them in the daytime. *****END SPOILERS***** Another fun, humourous book by Moore, though not my favourite (those would be Lamb and A Dirty Job). I actually found their little minion, Abby, kind of annoying. But, I loved the small scene in the book that was also a scene in A Dirty Job - just from Jody's point of view instead of Charlie's (the main character in A Dirty Job). I thought that was very cleverly done. Overall, I enjoyed it and will continue the series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious I have to start off by saying that I love Christopher Moore. This book was quite funny and I just couldn't put it down. It's even better than Bloodsucking Fiends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Funny This is the second book in Christopher Moore's vampire series and I thought it was great, it was a really nice sequesl to the first and it picks up right where the first left off and everything snowballs from there. Overall I thought the book was great and it was also really funny I love Moore's writing style,it was also really nice to have some new character additions to the book I really like Abby she has an interesting personallity. The book was great go check it out. :0)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Laugh Out Loud Hilarious Reason for Reading: Next in the series and in preparation for the new book that just came out today in the series, "Bite Me". Summary: This book picks up right where book one, Bloodsucking Fiends, leaves off. Not too much of a plot going on here or maybe small bits of many plots going on. Jody and Tommy are exploring their new relationship. The Animals have all joined together with a blue-dyed Las Vegas hooker who decides to become their leader and wants them to capture Tommy. Tommy has his own minion, a cute goth girl who calls him Lord Flood and Jody, The Countess, and unfortunately Elijah, who was taken care of in book one, has escaped and is out to get them all again. Comments: Jody and Tommy are such a wonderful vampire couple; they show how it can be done right, with the perfect love match and eternal togetherness and a whole lot of fun! (Bella and Edward go find a coffin!) All the eccentric characters from book one are back with a few new faces: a homeless man and his HUGE shaved cat, Abby Normal the cute Goth girl who thinks vampires are so cool, and Blue the prostitute with blue-dyed skin. The whole book is just a complete riot, one outrageous episode after another that had me laughing out loud. I was very pleased to see Charlie Asher from A Dirty Job show up for a tiny cameo too! I think I have to say I enjoyed this one even more than the first book but the ending did bug me. I'm glad I've read it now when I know another book has been written, I think if I'd read it at the time it was published I would have been quite upset with the ending which just begs for a sequel to be written and three years is a long time to wait for one! Christopher Moore's humour is not for everyone but if you can laugh at yourself as much as others and can take a joke easier than you take offense Moore will be right up your alley. I can't wait to read "Bite Me" now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chris Moore is hilarious I bought this book about 6 months ago but put it on a shelf. I threw it in my suitcase as an afterthought while packing for a business trip. I started reading it at the airport on my way back home. I was sitting by myself at the gate and laughing out loud every few minutes. I didn't even care that my flight was delayed 3 hours!! I finished it before we landed. I wish I could apologize to the other passengers... It couldn't be helped. Christopher Moore is brilliant! I bought the rest of his books and am reading them now. So far, I'm not disappointed...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yay Romance and Goths! In my opinion, it wasn't as good as some of his later (or earlier) works. Love Sucks was still funny, and I still has some great characters, but there was something that it seemed to be lacking to really give it the oomph that made me fall in love with Fool and Practical Demonkeeping. Perhaps it was because I didn't read the first novel first, but just went straight to the sequel. For a more enjoyable read, I recommend reading the series in order, but Moore does a great job of making it unnecesary for anything but character development... after all, it's a love story, so why jump in halfway through the romance?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Hit Warning to anyone who wants to read this book, first...READ NUMBER ONE! next make sure not to be eating or drinking something when reading... unless you like cleaning up big messes. But if your looking for a love story with Vampires, Goths, Gay Guys, Turkey Bowling, and blood sucking Cats, READ IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Want More From Moore! This is the third book of Moore's that I have read, along with A Dirty Job and Bloodsucking Fiends, and I must say that I am impressed once again. Though not as good as the other two, I still found You Suck to be a great read. The book picked up where Bloodsucking Fiends left off, and it just got better and better. I liked the fact that there were connections to A Dirty Job, like the friend Lily who worked at Asher's secondhand shop, and Jody going into the shop and meeting Charlie. Not quite as good as the others, but still an excellent read. Now I'm off to read Fool; can't wait!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made me laugh The author has a habit of taking strange situations and making them funny...great work! I enjoyed this book, vampires need love too. If you enjoy Moore's work, then you'll enjoy this one as well. And also if you've read "A dirty job" then there's a part in this book that will make you go "ohh yea" hehe. Good read!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the greatest follow up This book is round two of Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore brings us up to date on what is going on with Jody and Tommy and their vampire-filled world. Jody has recently turned Tommy and, unlike last novel where Jody was trying to get used to being a vampire, we now have Tommy trying to get used to being a vampire. The two try to find a minion to do their daytime bidding, try to determine how to drink coffee without throwing it up, figure out what to do with their bronzed statue of an evil vampire, and deal with the animals and their drinking and smurf-ish hooker problems. Yes, if you haven't read this book it sounds a bit ridiculous. Even having read the book, it is a bit ridiculous. My understanding is that Moore only wrote this book to shut up his fans who kept asking for a sequel. It didn't seem as well planned out as the first one, and was a little too similar. Moore reused plot lines and solutions that the characters from the first novel had come up with again in the second novel. While it was fun and light, it's not one of Moore's better works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from funny and clever I really enjoyed reading this book, it made me laugh out loud several times, but I was a little put out by the ending.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I'm not sure what sucked more.. I was excited to read this Chris Moore's book... After the first few chapters, I kept asking myself where the story was going. I'm glad I bought this book at a discount because it would not have been worth the full price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suck On \m/ First of all, I’d like to suggest that anyone who wants to read this, read Moore’s “Bloodsucking Fiends” before this one. I received this as a gift, not realizing it was a sequel. I enjoyed it, but I think I would have gotten much more out of it had I read “Bloodsucking Fiends” before getting into it. Having said all of that, You Suck was great in a MaryJanice Davidson kind of manic, incredibility that somehow works. (If you let it.) It’s funny, frantic, and full of lovely fiends. Not for those who like their vamps dark and brooding.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Title Describes this book If you like this kind of genre...this is the book for you...for those looking for alittle more substance then what this book offers dont run to the store to buy it. It has its funny moments and it is about vampires...was hoping for alot more as I read the recommendations...was disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, but not his best I love Christopher Moore, and I love vampire stories. You Suck is average for both Moore and vampire stories. It's not bad, and I can't say I'm really disappointed, but after reading Fluke, Coyote Blue, A Dirty Job and especially Lamb, this really is nothing special. Same goes for Bloodsucking Fiends - it's fine, even cute, but nothing special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will blow your minds out! This book was so hiliarious, even from the first sentence. The plot of the story keeps you on edge and yu cannot get enough of the characters. Moore told the story from an omniscient point of view which really helps people to try to stay on track and wanting to know more. I would recommend this novel to anyone who wants a laugh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You may suck but this book doesn't I would have never thought being a cursed undead fiend could be such trouble and so funny. Of course I like Chris Moore's sense of cynical humour and take on the world so it is pretty easy for me to like this book. My only quibble is having read five of Moore's book is that they are pretty self referential and maybe he could create some other characters rather than run the same people through the mill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love him From the looks of the reviews I guess you either love Mr Moore or you hate him. I've read all of his books except 2 and I LOVE him. He even kept me entertained during a 5 week stay in the hospital (not an easy task). For those that didn't like this book I do suggest you try some of his others. Top of my list would be Lamb or Dirty Job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laughs with Vampires Fun filled sequel to "Bloodsucking Fiends". San Francisco as I've never seen it. In short, I've learned that if Christopher Moore wrote it, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We All Need More Moore There's probably too many novels about vampires already. Anne Rice popularized them, and authors like Laurel K. Hamilton have continued the tradition. This said, Moore's newest offering is probably the only enjoyable novel about vampires I've ever read. I find that a lot of paranormal fiction takes itself much too seriously, and vampires are always turned into an allegorical comment on the brevity of life. Not so with You Suck. Being vampires tends to complicate the lives of the main characters, but it just lends a fun comic tune to the book. The shaved cats and blue women help, too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Title Should Be: This Book Sucks If I could sum up this book in one word it would be: Drival. In the 1 1/2 Chapter I read...I couldn't keep my attention on it, it was SO Horrible. If I could, I wouldn't even give it ONE leaf rateing, let alone Five! How on Earth did this book become a New York Time's Best Seller, I have no idea. Chris Moore, please...no more Vampire Romances. P.S. Because of this book, I'm afraid to pick up another one of his books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reading in public can be embarassing Working for Indigo, I was just recently turned onto Christopher Moore, but to date he has done nothing but make for great reading. This book was more than funny as is evident by the several time I burst out laughing on the bus. Everyone who is anyone should read this book. The seemingly simple story is so easy to get into and very satisfying in the end.
Date published: 2007-06-08
Rated 2 out of 5 by from It pretty much sucks... As per usual, Christopher Moore gives us the occasional burst of hilarity and oddball characters we have come to expect, but the story here is extremely disjointed and doesn't flow well. Characters from his last novel even show up in here unexpectedly, and there is the usual assortment of bad language and vulgarity. Not fantastic, certainly not worth the hard cover price...
Date published: 2007-02-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sick, Twisted, and Absolutely Amazing I love Christopher Moore and all of his books (at least, all the ones I've read). They're witty, hillarious, dark, and quite original. His characters are smart, funny and spontaneous, making the book an unforgettable serious of twists and antics. I would advise all to read it, although maybe not so much the younger readers, but if you do, dont tell your parents you read it.

About the Book

Waking up after a fantastic night unlike any he's ever had, C. Thomas Flood discovers the woman of his dreams is a vampire, and surprise, he's one now, too. Making their relationship work is the least of their problems. A dangerous faction of old longteeth is bent on wiping out new vampires.

From the Publisher

"You bitch, you killed me. You suck!"

Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks.

Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody—the woman of his dreams—is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

For some couples, the whole biting-and-blood thing would have been a deal breaker. But Tommy and Jody are in love, and they vow to work through their issues. Like how much Jody should teach Tommy about his new superpowers (and how much he needs to learn on his own). Plus there's Tommy's cute new minion, sixteen-year-old goth girl Abby Normal. (Well, someone has to run errands during daylight hours!)

Making the relationship work, however, is the least of Jody and Tommy's problems. Word has it that the vampire who nibbled on Jody wasn't supposed to be recruiting any new members into the club. Even worse, Tommy's erstwhile turkey-bowling pals are out to get him, at the urging of a blue-dyed Las Vegas call girl named (duh) Blue.

And that really sucks.
