This book has some Christopher Moore moments, but not enough of them to sustain interest. Allen is a professor's assistant in Prague where the professor is supposedly working on a chapter about Kafka. I'm stopping at page 115, and so far there have been no mention of vampires. There have been pornographic guidebooks, sorority sister witches, Jesuits with machine guns, and strange narrative flashbacks by a ghost.

That said, the writing is just plain boring. There really are interesting moments (see above) but they are buffered on either side by dull narrative that is overly descriptive and lingers on the wrong details. The jumping between third-person narration and the ghost in the past and present is jarring and eliminates any rhythm a reader might find with the flow of the story.
