Different, but I liked it.

This is a different kind of vampire than we are used to reading about. He also has a great sense of humor... among other things.

An entertaining vampire book with a strong and engaging narrator. The biggest problem with it is it's too short. But certainly a good read, let's just hope a sequel comes soon!

I've never read a vampire story written in this kind of voice. It didn't take long at all to grow close to the undead narrator. The mixture of action, travelogue, and seedy street scenes is handled with dexterity. At only 103 pages it's a short book that leaves a lasting impression and was never guilty of weighing me down.

Really enjoyed the book.
It was one of those books that you didn't want to put down, and was easily read in one night. I liked the references to the Western NY area.
