This hilarious take on the vampire genre doesn't require that you pay attention or care about vampires - all it requires is a dark and sarcastic sense of humor. The story concerns two modern-day vampires who have to worry about things that never bothered Dracula or Lestat - how to pay rent and where to make friends. They have to balance their social life and manage to keep their young relationship afloat - not to mention having to deal with the annoying vampire fad that is sweeping the nation. 

You will know from the first few pages whether this book is for you. If you don't laugh once, this book isn't for you. However, if you smile to yourself while thinking "Why hasn't anyone ever written this before?" - you will devour this book within hours and have a higher standard for humorous fiction from then on. This is not a novel to pick up when you want something to get your intellectual juices flowing, nor will it provoke any deep thoughts within you (except for "What would I do if I was a vampire?"), but it will give you many laughs and help you relax if you've spent all day reading boring memos or impossibly tedious documents.
