Comical Fantasy: Gil's All Fright Diner & Bloodsucking Fiends

Gil's All Fright Diner by A. Lee Martinez 
Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore 

I have just finished reading Moore's Bloodsucking Fiends. After reading some reviews from Amazon, I expected it to be much funnier; however, it was a delightful little read, and I did find myself smile and laugh at certain segments. An aspect of the book I enjoy was the progression of the main characters relationship, and the ending was not bad either. 

When compared to A. Lee Martinez's Gil's All Fright Diner, I must confess Martinez's comical fantasy is truly funny and leaves me craving more of his work. His protagonists are unique; they stray from the normal vampire and werewolf. Sad to say, that Gil’s All Fight Diner is Martinez only book at the moment. If anyone is reading this and want to try something a little dark and light hearted, I recommend Martinez’s book, and Charlaine Harris’s Sookie series. Oh, a little scope that you could read in Mrs. Harris' site, HBO might try a series pertaining to the Sookie series.

You know, I expected Bloodsucking Fiends to be a lot funnier, too.... I sure hope You Suck is a lot better than that first one. I suppose Lamb spoiled me a bit-- it was *absolutely* hilarious. So, yes... don't give up on Moore just yet! He's marvelous in The Stupidest Angel and Lamb.
