The Vampire Kitty-cat Chronicles upends vampire mythology when Patch, a calico tomcat, is turned into breakfast--and a vampire kitty-cat--by a starving vampire. Narrated by Patch in a deliciously snarky cat take on the world, Patch struggles to find a new life, as it were. In the process, he's almost skewered with a stake by a mob, tried for murder, just about shotgunned i ...more

When I was a kid I remember reading Bunnicula by Deborah and James Howe (about a vampire bunny who sucks the juice out of vegetables) and thinking it was the coolest book ever. So I got all nostalgic when I heard about The Vampire Kitty-cat Chronicles. I was hoping to find a snarky, fun read about vampires with a uniquely feline point of view. Well, the cat part proved true, but as for the snarky fun? Not so much.

Newly turned vampires, Patch t

This book is actually called "The Vampire Kitty Cat Chronicles", so GoodReads needs to correct that. ;) Okay, this book would have been four and a half stars if the author would have left out the gay agenda and far left politics. The actual tale of Patch is cute and funny in a fast paced way that really reminded me of early John Water's films(think Multiple Maniacs). It would make a great film in the cult tradition of Rocky Horror- I know I would show up and get into the whole audience participa ...more

I don't usually read books told from the perspective of an animal but this book was an adventure from the very start. When I passed this along to a friend she said she could absolutely see this being an animated movie or graphic novel. I'm not sure that I got the same vibe as she did, but I found the writing style to be casual and fun.

The idea that vampires would have their own organization, complete with a political candidate running for city council is a unique twist on the usual vampire story

I received an advanced reader copy of this book in December and finally got a chance to read it right before the New Year.

The book has a very cute premise: A calico cat is accidentally turned into a vampire when he is attacked by a half-starved newly turned vampire. The story is told from the point of view of "Patch" the cat.

I can see the intended humor in the book and some of it is chuckle-worthy. The author clearly has a cat (or two) of his own and does a good job incorporating cat quirks into

I'll admit, the idea of a kitty-cat vampire intrigued me. It is why I decided to get this book. I wasn't sure how it would be done, but I really thought it held a large amount of potential.

I was wrong!

Patch, knew too much, understood too much and despite not being able to talk or possessing opposable thumbs, was able to communicate too well with the humans around him.

I am a cat person, always have been and I think I always will be, so I understand that a person can come to understand their cats

Just Plain Fun...

In this vampire (tail) you get a cat's-eye view of the world from Patch--the unfortunate Calico tomcat who finds himself a newly sired vampire tangled up with slick lawyers, religious nuts, political fanatics and an underground society of vamps fighting for their rights to be un-dead.

Often hilarious and sometimes thought provoking, this well told story is a true original--unlike any other vampire novel out there.

This book was just plain fun. You'll flipping pages to find out wha

What a funny and charming story. This kitty-cat is a great narrator, observing everything and noting the doings of humans, but never stooping to our level. He's a totally believable cat. And he's a vampire, which is played for both laughs and pathos. It wasn't his choice, but then it wasn't the choice of the woman who infected Patch, either. I really felt for Patch as he dealt with all the changes in his life, always landing with his feet on the ground (sorry, had to say it). There are some grea ...more

Yeah, I know, but sometimes you just have to try.

Actually the beginning of this book is pretty good. Rhamey does an excellent job of cat voice. In fact if it had ended by chapter 3, 4, or 5, I would be giving this four stars.

But then it gets all, well, tedious and doesn't make sense.

It is also strange how this book can be annoying to people who are either Christian or Gay. (A gay character is so very sterotypical it isn't even funny).

It's one of those books that would've been better as a shor

This is hilarious and fun to read, and Patch is an adorable cat. But the book isn't literary fiction, and some of the characters are more stereotypicl than realistic (and yes, I say that realizing that it's humor rather than serious fiction).
