The rats were a fun idea and I appreciated that Jules got hung up about his missing rodent, most guys would, but the humor could have been increased ten fold. It was a silly concept and would have benefited from some less subtle / implied humor.

The sequel to Fat White Vampire Blues takes the characters in a different direction. The first was a sort of vampiric love letter to John Kennedy Toole's "A Confederacy of Dunces," the second is a vampiric love letter to pulp detective novels. More fun than funny, it's still a good read.

More tasty down-home hijinks with an unconventional character serving as a detective. Devolves into corny silliness but it's fun for the most part.

I know a lot of fans from the first book might be disappointing that this one wasn't aiming as hard for comedy. But instead aiming for a vampire=based noir book, Fox ended up writing a FAR superior book. More smartly put together,more engaging and realistic characters, just over all smarter.

Years ago, I read and reviewed Fat White Vampire Blues. In that novel, Andrew Fox introduces us to a series of absurdly fascinating characters, including the title fat vamp character Jules Duchon. Jules is a huge man, a giant, disgusting, vampiric tub of lard. He is smaller than the oracle record keeping fat vampire in Blade. He is smaller than a house. But his 400-500 pound size is becoming a problem for him.

An undead of his size cannot simply stalk prey, let alone the prey he prefers. Jules

A sequel to Fat White Vampire Blues. Again, I picked it up with low expectations. I wanted a few more laughs and liked the twist on the traditional sexy vampire. In that way, it again did not disappoint. I also think the author's skills have improved slightly.

I wanted to know what happened to Jules after he found his higher conscience in the form of a bunch of rats feasting on the city's trash rather than the blood which he needs as a vampire. Forced back into his former form, Jules is put to

This sequel to Fat White Vampire Blues was almost as much of a disappointment as the first book. The events in this book occur shortly after Fat White Vampire Blues concludes but don't get rehashed for the reader's reminder so if you don't read them back to back you find yourself backpeddling a bit in order to follow the storylines. Bride of Fat White Vampire gets to its plot line a lot more quickly than the first book which is a good thing. Unfortunately, Bride of Fat White Vampire isn't as ...more

In this sequel to Fat White Vampire, we journey back to New Orleans where Jules has turned himself into 187 white rats and is enjoying a guilt free life of gourmate dumpster diving. Next thing he knows, he's in a big wire cage, naked and missing a vital part of his anatomy. Seem Doodlebug needs his help in keeping his retreat and the High Krew is requesting his help, or else! Several of their young women have been mutilated and they want to know who's doing this and why. Jules is now forced to ...more

Sequel to Fat White Vampire Blues, events in this book occur shortly after Fat White concludes. I wish I'd read this one sooner after finish the previous, because even though much mention is made of the previous events not all the details are rehashed and I'd forgotten a bunch. Almost as much fun as the first book, this one has Jules Duchon conscripted as a detective by the High Krewe, who convince him that it is in his best interest to work for them or Doodlebug loses his California institute. ...more

Unfortunately, Bride isn't as good as the original. Now that his initial danger has passed (and he's living a contented life in many, many pieces), Fox had to come up with a gimmick to bring Jules back. Fat White Vampire Detective would've been a more accurate title.

And though the novelty has worn off a little, Jules is still fun. Doodlebug adds an interesting element (Thin White Vampire Transvestite), as do the creepy Krewe. But this one feels a little forced.

I really enjoyed this sequel to the Fat White Vampire Blues. Jules is back and forced to investigate and solve a mystery involving both of the local clans of vampires. We are taken on a roller coaster ride as Jules and friends try to solve they mystery before it is too late. Loved the finale and hope that we see more of these characters in the future.

Recommends it for: People who read the 1st one
Gets to its plot line a lot more quickly than the first--which is a good thing. Complicated mystery with happy elements of the grotesque and macabre and plenty of humor. Things get thoroughly wrapped up at the end, so the next one might be "Son of the Fat White Vampire" or "Fat White Vampire Goes to College"....

Set in New Orleans, the second of the Fat Vampire series has a much different slant than your typical S7M vampire novel. For onr thing, this vampires loves Cajun & creole cooking, or at least the blood of those who have feasted on crayfish!

A little slower paced than the first, but still fun nonetheless. Cool read and something that has you guessing right through. Some slow parts, but all in all, a terrific read.

Another fun story about a nontraditional vampire. Fox infuses so much humor in a suspensfull story.

I wish this was trilogy, like a big helping of gumbo poured over a hunk of fried grits, just delicious!

A great sequel to the first novel that dove right in where it left off without being cheap in "digging" out a plot from the end of the first novel. Fun and as always very funny writing. Awesome.
