Susan Bennett's sassy reading is a perfect fit for Moore's satirical story and sarcastic dialogue. Nineteen-year-old Tommy has turned into a vampire, and his sexy girlfriend tries to put up with his incompetence and fawning while she's on to more important issues--like fleeing from Elijah, an elder vampire, and dealing with a whole cast of wacky San Francisco personalities. In a fun way, the book addresses the realities of its absurd construct. Take, for example, the slapstick scene in which Tommy goes on his first blood hunt and finds a promising fat cat but has hilarious difficulty keeping the unkempt animal's fur out of his mouth. Bennett reads like a stand-up comic, issuing both straight lines and zingers with perfect timing. S.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
