Title: Vampire A Go Go
Author: Victor Gischler
Pages: 141
Rating: 4.5/5

Summary (Amazon):

Allen Cabbot is saved from flunking out of graduate school by the extremely difficult Prof. Evergreen, who invites him to join a research project in Prague. Almost immediately, Allen finds himself tangling with Battle Jesuits, a Society of Witches and a vampire, and he learns that Evergreen's real goal may be the philosopher's stone. The feisty ghost of 16th-century alchemist Edward Kelley serves as narrator, complaining about the picture on his Wikipedia entry while explaining the history behind Allen's adventure.

My Say:

Hillarious! I never read anything by the author before but when do some research (well, you know browsing the webs and all) he's actually has another book Go Go Girls Apocalypse which is also good. I wish I have the copy and read it straight away! He writes the book without saving anything best for the last since I think he's giving it best in every page. Every chapters serve you with a very fast pace and it has good simplicity on the writing. I love it straight away. The characters are predictable but it's good because I find nothing wrong with it. Some adventurous scenes are like in a graphic novel which you can simply imagine and laugh! It's not very perfect, but it's perfect enough which every details of the book increase my interest to know more and keep on turning the pages. The writer know how to write scripts with humors; wry and quite dark. However, there's a few boring moment but it still okay. Maybe the interesting parts is that he includes vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts, alchemists, zombies, just name a few, in the story. That is maybe what I need for a while apart from every books I've read recently seems those creatures are very 'in' and gives a very good impression. But in this book, you'll get the real thing.

It's a light reading and I think you might pick it up and love it at once. Well, maybe it is if you like paranormal and think this might be what you need for something real.
