This book was an interesting read, for a few reasons. Also, note that this was the first Christopher Moore novel that I have read.

First of all, I am not a huge fan of the romance aspect of the urban fantasy genre (with a few exceptions). The "romance" in this novel was well thought out and did not take away from the overall plot. Yes the series is "A Love Story", however, the overall plot is about the love story, and not the romance itself.

This novel was a novel approach (pun intended) on the whole new vampire trying to survive story as while the main character is the fledgling vampire, it is written mostly in the perspective of others, mainly her first (renfield?).

While this novel is written in the comedy style similar to the "Hitchhikers Guide" series by Douglas Adams, the characters for the most part were a little too silly. It's as if the characters were a bunch of hapless idiots running around that just happen to move the plot forward.

Overall this is a novel written on an eighth-grade level, with themes that should not be read until high school at least. If you want a fun story that does not make the user think, then this is a great novel.
