Being undead sucks. Literally.

Just ask C. Thomas Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, 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.

But word has it that the vampire who initially nibbled on Jody wasn't supposed to be recruiting. 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 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.

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 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 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 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.
