Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious and Poignant Anderson strikes a balance between teenage absurdity and adult morality, where grey areas rule the day. Thirsty provides great commentary on persecution of "others".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good! I picked up Thirsty randomly, and I have to say that I really liked it. I didn't have very high expectations at first, but once I started, I found I couldn't stop reading. I had to find out what happened to Chris and his friends. Though, the ending was kind of a cliffhanger. If the ending was a bit different, or if there's a sequel I don't know about, then maybe this book could have gotten a 5 from me. Overall, not too bad. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from a unique tale! This book was diffrent than any other vampire books that ive read. For one, it was not a love story like twilight or vampire kisses and it was very very descriptive. i thought personally that it was a bit slow in the beginning but like every book it was thrilling in some parts (like when he starts to change into a vampire) i wish the ending was more well written becuase i wanted to know what happend to chris.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes awhile to get into but pays off at the end. I found this book slow to get into but I really did enjoy it in the end. It is such a different take on the vampire book. Vampires, fairies, other unhumans exist. When bodies start showing up, people stop going out so much at night. If a vampire gets caught, they get lynched. Chris is starting to turn into a vampire - he has no idea why - he's never been bitten. He is so thirsty. Then Chris meets Chet - a celestial being working for the Forces of Light - and Chris has to make a choice. Become a vampire or try to save the world. Chris is so alone in this book. The feelings of becoming a vampire mirror so much teen angst and isolation felt by normal teens. It is so different that it is worth the slow pacing at the start of the book. I really did like it in the end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Book! This is a really good book, I just think that the ending was stupid and i hope they make another book as a second to explain the ending better if the author dosen't then I think the author could have ended it differently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was Thirsty for more! Well, Thirsty is the story of Chris, and his challenges once he figures out that he is turning into a vampire. It was bloody, exciting, and thrilling, and I could not put it down. Thirsty was AWESOME.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious read I absolutely loved this book. I have read it about 5 times since I got it. It was suspensful, and gave the reader insight into how someone might feel about becoming non-human, but it wasn't biased about hating things that are different, as many books are. I felt that this was also a much more mature theme for this author to explore. This book was throughly satifying and a delicious read. Though it made me kinda thristy ^_^!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disgustingly Barable I don't usually have many negative comments about books, especially vampire books. But this was terrible, it was so random, and unbelievably confusing. Yet, you just keep reading. I think it's just curiosity that keeps you reading. But its probably the worst Vampire book I've ever read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thirsty This book was enthralling. From the moment I picked it up, the pages just flew by and before I knew it, I had finished it. Many teenagers in our society can relate to this book, even though most aren't turning into a vampire. This book was well written and had a haunting conclusion and I'll definately read it again and recommend it to my friends!
