      This is a good story but it didnt come without problems Character wise this was a mess They were mostly unlikable characters For various reasons too Susan is the main character but we hardly hear from her She gets vocal at the end but when that happens she grates She s got 2 daughters one has been in trouble with drugs and the other is kinda mean Then we have Zaire the lesbian lover of her daughter Resi which I didnt like her at all Too much wanting to fight all the time Susan s sister JoAnnjus [...]

      All Susan wants is to get her phone over the bathroom stall wall so she can record the woman fighting with her seriously bratty child and post it on her website One awkward fall later, and she lands herself in a mess of trouble Becoming a vampire wasn t quite what she meant she prayed for a youthful body To make things even worse, when her vain family members get a look at her new body they can t wait to get a piece for themselves I mentioned in yesterday s post how much I enjoyed the humor in [...]

      I loved this book I ve never read anything like it, which is always a win in my book At first, when I saw it was about vampires, I wasn t sure, but I haven t read a vampire novel in a while, so I wanted to give it a try Another thing that made me want to give the book a try was the cover Yes, I m a sucker for a great cover, and this book has a great cover Anyway, I m glad the first vampire novel I ve read in a while was this one First, a brief over view Susan, a middle aged woman who is bored wi [...]

      Every time I think I ve read everything new in the Vampire genre along comes an unexpected treat.I got this book as part of a box set called Magic and Mayhem.While action thriller is my main read, I admit to loving some good vampire and magic stories too I find that I prefer when these genres have comedy in them like the fantastic series from Rick Gualtieri and John Locke.Even now after I ve read this book it s really hard to pen a good description of it now At times my brain felt like a pinball [...]

      I m giving this one 2 and a half stars and going to try the next in the series to see if it gets better.The biggest issues with this story 1 Way to much use of foul language, I was starting to wonder if these people could have a conversation without dropping God and damn together 2 It dragged quite a bit in places, making you feel like there was no forward progress 3 I felt almost like I was reading a Lynsay Sands fanfiction with a few other popular vamp books thrown in, not because of the refer [...]

    6. Carlyle Clark on said:

      Susan Stec s THE UNGRATEFUL DEAD THEY RE SO VEIN, is a rip snorting satire on all things vampiric and paranormal If comedy lurks on the other side of any societal boundary, you can be certain Susan s characters will sashay across it without a backwards glance.Rather than following the current convention of brooding immortals, Susan gives us a zany family of middle aged and elderly women suddenly returned to the prime of their youth albeit an undead youth , with the bonuses of being gorgeous vamp [...]

      I m always wary about books that claim to be funny as I rarely find them funny and this was the case with this book.OK I can see why other people found the book amusing But for me, I just found it plain annoying to watch a group of mature women acting like young kids in the playground It was all very immature and tiresome and I gave myself a headache from all the rolling of my eyes skyward as the situations got ridiculous They were pouting, whining, sulking and calling each other names like a b [...]

    8. Kristin on said:

      A unique take on the traditional vampire tale My only real criticism is the catty confusing female family fights One because its just annoying And two because one or two of these outbursts are hard to follow, thus throwing me out of the story And I usually love snark something didn t flow in these parts I also didn t like JoAnn, but I don t think we re supposed to I would ve drained her and left her for dead, family or not The surprising parts were that the first two vamps you see are not a love [...]

    9. BK Blue on said:

      I liked the premise better before I actually started reading it Jesus Christ that family is annoying as hell So are the rest of the characters The whole book is them bitching at each other I m not kidding The grandmother had a couple funny lines and the one actual sex scene was hot Those are the only reasons why this even got 3 stars I thought the child vampire idea would be interesting, but even Christopher was annoying for most of the book.I was disappointed with this book, and at myself for f [...]

      I simply loved reading They re so Vein by Susan Stec She has a unique style of her own in writing I was simply pulled from the first few pages loved the humorous parts and the snarky comments that the 5 ladies have with each otherSusan the main character in the story is awesome I simply love how she handles things when something happened in a public bathroom and Joanne is a riot Nanna the grandmother , Resi Susan s daughter and Zaire who is a black lady with an awesome snarky attitude and Resi s [...]

      The Grateful Undead By Susan StecI love the idea of a humor based vampire series Susan s characters are a total crack up and I truly enjoy the mad cap adventures they get themselves into Plus she s got some sexy stuff in there too, so it s a full on entertainment package If you don t mind a little blood, sex, and swearing, you re sure to enjoy this one.

    12. Jeanne Bannon on said:

      Susan Stec s wrting is delightful, hilarious and very entertaining This is a vampire supernatural novel like you ve never read before It is unique and refreshing The Grateful Undead is filled with wonderful characters that you ll wish you knew personally and will keep you wanting I, for one, am grateful she s writing a series as one book is simply not enough I loved it

    13. Suki Michelle on said:

      I took a chance on this novel because I really like Sookie Stackhouse and True Blood on HBO and I ve already read all of Christopher Moore s stuff and this looked like it was something similar I m happy that I did because even though it doesn t have the chills up the spine moments of True Blood, it s incredibly funny and a great light page turner Really looking forward to the sequel

    14. Angela Fristoe on said:

      Read an advanced version of this book, and it was hilarious The characters are a riot and shed an entirely new light on vampires This promises to be great series

      Very funny take on vampires Any supernatural readers would love this book.

    18. Laura Wolf on said:

      4.5 STARSVery Hilarious Story of a 58 year old woman who discovers the fountain of youth when bitten by a bratty Vamp And if comes with a hodge podge of funny antics as her family all get into the act along with the Vamp council and her new Hunny Bunny Marcus LOL Not my usual read but Fun Would have gotten a 5 star review but needs editing

    19. Peter on said:

      An original and funny take on vampires a bunch of ladies want to be vampires because it makes them younger and look good again all the way to the grandma Really funny and original writing, one of the best books in the 21 book collection it was part of.

    20. Katie on said:

      This sounded really promising, and I even thought I could look past the bad writing It started off with funny bits here and there, but the characters were so annoying I couldn t take than 6 chapters.

    21. Darcy Thorn on said:

      I absolutely loved this book Engaging realistic characters and so calm funnyLove it Wish my family was so funny and the story moves quickly Can t wait to read the rest Cheers

      This is book 1 in The Grateful Undead Series In it we meet Susan who is a middle aged woman 58 As a result her body is sagging and she wishes to be back to when she looked amazing Her wish is answered when she runs into a vampire When others close to her see how she is changing they ask her to change them as well What they don t realize is that the Vampire world is just as controlled as the human world and has just as many rules The bad part is they break almost all of them very early on These n [...]

      When vanity turns a whole family into vampires, be prepared for laughs The Grateful Undead starts out strong with They re So Vein Susan Stec takes the old vampire stories, myths, and legends and turns them on their heads From the very start, Susan s family make us laugh with their interpersonal relationships, familial quirks, and outlandish personalities.I picked this book up because I was lucky enough to win the second book in a Facebook contest that Susan hosts for the All Hallows Reads event [...]

    24. Wende on said:

      Susan was a great character Funny if a bit over the top I could not get enough of her and her family of misfits Nothing is sacred as the girls go from one madcap missteps to another From the vampire child,the animals, and then to a nympho grandma I loved how I laughed so hard my stomach hurt This was a different take on vampires and this book did not take itself seriously I hope poor Christopher who is a cursing century old toddler gets to grow up After Susan he is my favorite Susan and Marcus w [...]

    25. Alice on said:

      Is this really funny Jerry Springer set becomes vampires Some people may enjoy this Some people watch Jerry Springer These family members had little connection with each other, no concern about anyone becoming a vampire, whether another member wants to join or not, and if they need to ask permission from a donor I could not connect or care about anyone in this book and had to stop at one third into it I read until the Hero was introduced and he s no winner either Stake them all.This is very unfo [...]

      Loved it Definitely a really interesting read Being in the wrong place at the wrong time this woman was attacked and turned into a vampire Who then ends up turning her whole family And they try to learn how to survive by cheesy novels When they were summoned by the head people of the vampire world they didn t immediately answer because they didn t know so they end up in a lot of trouble I loved that the one woman accidentally bit and made a vampire raccoon Who proceeds to make a animal vampire a [...]

      20% complete I expected humor but sadly this falls flat So far the only thing I see are mature adults acting as adolescents.47% done and all hope is lost This book is like watching a rodent on a plastic wheel it keeps going around and around without really going anywhere Sadly I have to advise don t bother I thought this had potential but it was not to be I m moving on to better things

    28. Glenn Harris on said:

      This hilarious paranormal romp features a highly dysfunctional family of women who become vampires without a clue about what it really means or what the rules are They just want to be immortal and hot Suffice it to say they are not a welcome addition to the vampire community First of a series and I m looking forward to reading .

    29. Ian McClellan on said:

      The characters in this book were great and reminded me of what my own very dysfunctional family would be like if we were all female and undead A great story and a lot of humor that made me want to keep turning pages even when I couldn t I was going to give it a four but went with a five because of all the awesome foul language.
