American Vampire

American Vampire - Jennifer Armintrout This book often made me laugh. You have your reluctant hero in Graf, a city-slicker vampire who's lost his way because his GPS is defunct and he ends up in a creepy, backwoods Ohio town, the likes of which, hasn't seen a moving vehicle in, oh, say five years. You also have a piss-and-vinegar heroine, Jessa, who's in her mid-20s and the "other woman" in her ex-boyfriend, Derek's, marriage. And then you have It. The demon beast holding the town captive and terrorizing the citizens. The dialogue between Graf and Jessa is often amusing. The townpeople reminded me eerily of one of those creepy small-town movies by Stephen King (you know the kind, with pitch-forks, torches and eyes that are glazed over?). The plot felt a bit mish-mashed. It often took a turn I didn't expect (not in a good way) and I thought it was a little far-fetched. The ending was abrupt; I expected more out of it, so I was a bit disappointed there. But overall, a good read and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys vampire fiction with a healthy dose of humor.
