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 have…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.

Grows On You and becames Warm and Fuzzy

HE'D GIVEN UP DAYTIME AND DONUTS
Don't let the cover of the book fool you. This is a well written book with a great central character. It is not LOL funny, not like Moore's Vampire series, but it is smile funny. I am a sucker for misfit type books and a FAT VAMPIRE is a misfit vampire. It took me a little while to warm up to it, but by the middle of the book, I could not stop listening. I especially love the theme of the book. I am buying book two. When you buy and listen to the book, don't give up until the little girl enters the picture. The story really took off from there.

The narrator reads real slow, I put him on 1.25 and he sounded normal. At 1.5 he would probably still sound normal.

Every overblown, formulaic, long winded moment.

All of them.

Brilliant take on vampire stories

This book is so funny. I had wondered myself what would happen if someone was 'turned' while fat. This book answers that question better than I could have hoped for. Funny, sad and poignant, in society's obsession with physical perfection, even vampire society. Loved it.

Great take on Vampires

What did you like most about Fat Vampire?

I found it very funny, witty and a roller coaster of what's going to happen at the end.

Any additional comments?

This is a really great take on vampires. I enjoyed the narrator, Matt Josdal, he did a great job bringing all the charactes to life with the different tones and inflictions for their voices. I really loved Reginald, such a likeable guy. Loved his relationship with Maurice, Clare and Nicki. Can't wait for the next one, so off to buy that now.
