You’re a Vampire – That Sucks!: A Survival Guide

We rated this book:


Books on how to detect and kill vampires are a dime a dozen these days, and only slightly less numerous are the tomes that discuss what pop culture has gotten wrong about vamps over the centuries and what these undead fangbangers are really up to.

But it’s far less common to encounter a guidebook for newbie vampires themselves, which makes You’re a Vampire: That Sucks! an interesting read. Yes, there is the whole “what Hollywood gets wrong” rigmarole, but those cliches are outweighed by numerous thoughtful asides and details about life as a vampire over the long haul. How do you deal with decades of time to fill? How do you make money without attracting attention?

I’ve read a lot of vampire books over the years, and although I’ve seen many of You’re a Vampire‘s tricks before, the lack of winking-at-the-camera gags and general goofiness that plague the genre helps this book quite a bit. “Count” Domenick Dicce comes off as worldly and capable, offering hard-won wisdom to potentially undeserving vampire readers.

This is a quick read that might just surprise oversaturated genre fans.
