Review: FAT VAMPIRE by Johnny B. Truant (a novella)

It’s hard to believe that a vampire can be fat. Normally they’re supposed to be intoxicatingly beautiful, even with the pale skin and all. But, technically, you are how you died.

Reginald has always been fat and has always been teased for it. Then something about the sword-wielding Goth kid seems fascinating. And that’s when things start to change.

Story started out fine with some wit along with that dry office humor. I was intrigued by the concept and was looking forward to a few chuckles by the sound of it, but the story was mediocre and banal. It was great that Reginald was cool with being a vampire, but then Maurice takes him to school on Vampire 101. Boring.

The whole thing pretty much focuses on Reginald’s fatness. It does suck to be undead AND fat. On top of it, he still has to go to work?!

My rating: 2 stars
