Review: Fat Vampire by Adam Rex

Fat Vampire
Adam Rex
Release Date: Jul 27, 2010

This book wasn't bad...but it wasn't great as well. I feel the story line wasn't that strong. It wasn't hard to put it down. I was a tad bit disappointed, liking vampires myself, and after reading reading the back and with the cover I was sure that I would like this book.
I really didn't like any of the characters. You have Doug who is the awkward comic geek, his friend Jay who is equally awkward...hiding in the bathroom for 30mins at a party... A foreign exchange student Senjal who has the Google, which is an addiction to the internet (...really) I really don't like the villain.. and really didn't like the ending. And the whole Vampire Hunter show just seemed lame. Also the ending had like a few didn't endings which I didn't entirely like. All in all, I recommend reading other books you really want to read first, before this one.

 I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
Doug Lee is undead quite by accident - attacked by a desperate vampire, he finds himself cursed with being fat and fifteen forever. When he has no luck finding some goth chick with a vampire fetish, he resorts to sucking the blood of cows under cover of the night. But it's just not the same.Then he meets the new Indian exchange student and falls for her - hard. Yeah, he wants to bite her, but he also wants to prove himself to her. But like the laws of life, love, and high school, the laws of vampire existence are complicated - it's not as easy as studying Dracula. Especially when the star of Vampire Hunters is hot on your trail in an attempt to boost ratings.... Searing, hilarious, and always unexpected, Fat Vampire is a satirical tour de force from one of the most original writers of fiction today.
