Publisher's Summary

When overweight treadmill salesman Reginald Baskin finally meets a co-worker who doesn't make fun of him, it's just his own bad luck that tech guy Maurice turns out to be a two thousand-year-old vampire.
And when Maurice turns Reginald to save his life, it's just Reginald's own further bad luck that he wakes up to discover he's become the slowest, weakest, most out-of-shape vampire ever born, doomed to "heal" to his corpulent self for all of eternity.
As Reginald struggles with the downsides of being a fat vampire - too slow to catch people to feed on, mocked by those he tries to glamour, assaulted by his intended prey and left for undead - he discovers in himself rare powers that few vampires haveā€¦and just in time too, because the Vampire Council might just want his head for being an inferior representative of their race.
Fat Vampire is the story of an unlikely hero who, after having an imperfect eternity shoved into his grease-stained hands, must learn to turn the afterlife's lemons into tasty lemon danishes.

Amusing concept

I really like the idea of an overweight vampire. It's fresh and new and it promises something different. Alhough it was original it really didn't take off. Wasn't as clever as I hoped it would and it falls a little flat. No believability in dialog or characters either. There were some great ideas, but all and all it reminds me of a rough draft. In different hands this story really could have turned out well.

- colleen "My favorite genres are absurdist humor, Sci-fi & modern fantasy, but, as you can see, I'll read just about anything. Don't mind the typos."

It wasn't bad but......

It also wasn't great. I read and or listen to ALOT of books.....Seriously. On average I got thru 5-7 books a week my main focuses are horror, thriller, erotic romance, and humor. This should have fit into a couple of these genre's but it just didn't do it for me. Frankly I looked forward to it being over with so I could get on to my next book.

It wasn't bad....sort of "cute" I guess. It was a little like trying to make the best out of a bad fat blind date.

Frankly at 10 Bucks or one precious credit per very short story I'm sort of relieved I didn't love it.
From a guy who "does two things writes and teaches you to become legendary" I was expecting more "WOW" and "meh".
