Bill Ryder was a dateless dweeb...then he died. Unfortunately for him that was just the beginning of his troubles. He awoke to find himself a vampire, one of the legendary predators of the night. Unfortunately for him, he was still at the bottom of the food chain.
Now he finds himself surrounded by creatures stronger, deadlier and a whole lot cooler than he is. Worst yet, they all want him dead...permanently this time.
Bill isn't exactly average, though. A vampire like him hasn't been seen in centuries. He's got a few tricks up his sleeve, unlikely allies, and an attitude problem that makes him too damn obnoxious to quit.
Join him in this hilarious tale of monsters, mayhem, and the unlikely hero who's not afraid to tell them all off...even if it gets his teeth kicked in.

Pretty funny, very enjoyable
I enjoyed this book a lot. There were a few moments in the beginning before Bill is turned that made me wonder if I was going to be able to stand the guy. A bit over the top with his silliness and horniness. But, that cleared up as the story continued. Definitely worthy of a credit. I went on to listen to the second book, and it was really good too.

SOMETIMES MY SUBCONSCIOUS, CAN BE SUCH AN AHOLE
HEY, I NEVER SAID I WASN'T SHALLOW
This turned out to be a fun book. Like many others, I had my doubts at first. The longer you listen, the more the story grows on you. It is full of sophomoric type humor, but that becomes less so as the story plays out and I thought it had an interesting take on the Vampire genre. Through out the book, I may have laughed out loud about five times. It was humorous, but not hilarious. It was also a border line five star book. It is worth a credit, and certainly worth $4.95.
Most of the sophomore humor relates to Dick Jokes and goggling the female vampires. The main character is a loser and a gamer at the age of 24. When he turns, he is still about 20 pounds overweight and nerdy, while all the other vampires look like runway models. The main female character was a stripper before turning. HEY, SO SHE GOT ME KILLED, THAT'S NO REASON TO STOP PUTTING THE MOVES ON HER. There is no sex.
IS UNCOVEN, EVEN A WORD
Narrator is actually pretty good, especially when doing characters. When doing just plain narration, he had a tendency to develop a cadence. His voice is also a little high and cheery for a Vampire book, no Bray deepness. Still he deserved the five stars.
WHAT WAS THIS, 1985
Author sounds like he grew up in the eighties. There are lots of references to Eighties music.
DEALS, MUCH LIKE UNDERWARE ARE CHANGED OFTEN
I liked this enough to continue the series, matter of fact you can get the first four books, in an omnibus for one credit.
