I would have assumed that when authors select a topic on which to write, they would attempt to pick one that interests them or for which they have some affection. The authors thinly veiled contempt and mockery of all that he experienced permeated the book and left a bad taste in my mouth. Because of his mockery, I felt he did not deal with the more interesting questions on the attraction of vampires for a large portion of the population, instead brushing the topic off as the territory of nerds and those who lacked the validation of being popular during their school years. Even the most snarky and sarcastic essayists and writers have some underlying affection but there was none in this book.
