    One thought on “I, Vampire”

    1. Wow, for a vampire novel, this is pretty wild Luckily, vampires in this world don t sulk, obsess about what they are wearing, or aack play baseball Vampires are fairly normal except that they live for a really long time and occasionally have to drink some blood.When it comes down to it, this novel is only vaguely about vampires The main character, Sterling O Blivion happens to be one and has lived 900 years but that just makes her the logical choice to oversee the psychic evolution of the human [...]

    2. Unjustly neglected for years, I, Vampire by Jody Scott is an exuberantly clever and wildly iconoclastic feminist and SF take on vampires in fiction If you thirst for something really witty, quirky, with bags of brains and not much blood you ll do no better than this wonderful novel.Sterling O Blivion is a bright, phenomenally well read and irreverent 700 year old vampire Now living in Chicago, she s a bored instructor of a dance studio But soon she s on a madcap adventure spree, falling in love [...]

    3. This book was just plain silly, which isn t necessarily a bad thing if executed well I did laugh and smile at the authors sense of humor, but the premise was just weak and wouldn t hold up I bought the book because Virginia Woolf is on the cover and has been bitten by a Vampire Funny right The protagonist, Sterling, is a 700 year old Vampire, that meets and falls in love with Virginia Woolf in Paris circa 1923 She sees Woolf again 80 years later walking down the street Woolf it seems, is actuall [...]

    4. A strange and wonderful sci fi story Jody Scott writes great dialogue and engages the reader with a pacey series of bizzare events I love the characters enthusiastic Alien Benaroya who takes the form of Virginia Woolfe and guides aging and jaded vampire, Stirling O blivion toward a new life of possibilities and love, beyond the pitfalls of humanity.

    5. One of the most original vampire fictions I ve ever read Science fiction, shape shifting, Virgina Woolf, lots of dry, sharp humor Why isn t Jody Scott famous

    6. I get it it s just not my type of hype.Jody Scott is an interesting author She co wrote a novel back in the 1950s, put out a few short pieces of science fiction and wrote at least one book that was never published mostly in the 1960s Then, in the early 1980s, put out two science fiction ish novels that have since become cult classics, but are mostly ignored I, Vampire is the second of these I still haven t read the first a loose sequel to her Passing for Human Nothing after that, whether she co [...]

    7. This was a little bit better than its prequel Sterling O Blivion, who has the most ridiculous and awesome name I ve encountered since Hiro Protagonist, is actually a pretty fun character and I enjoyed riding around in her head Had the novel been entirely about her adventures as a 700 year old vampire dealing with the crazy nonsense that is the 80s, I probably would have loved it and I did indeed adore the first few chapters However, the good space aliens from the previous book rear their ugly he [...]

    8. An interesting premise with undertones of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett a vampire meets an alien who takes on the shape of Virginia Wolf and then finds herself conscripted into an interstellar plan to save mankind from its own evil nature the story unfortunately veers into wackiness without purpose, loses the plot half way through, and winds up reading like some odd self help book about shaping your own reality.

    9. I would actually like to give this book 3.5 stars Science fiction needs a smart reader I loved how it was written Scott s language is super fun, but I wanted the book to go somewhere else with the plot I was a little disappointed in the end, but that may just be me not getting it There was a lot of talk about the law of attraction in this book I liked the message.

    10. It s hard to describe this book because there are so many wonderful things going on in it at once A vampire alive since medieval times, teaching dance in Chicago, falls in love with a fish from another planet That s just for starters Oh, just read it

    11. I read this book when I was eleven or so, and I mainly remember it as my introduction to the concept of homosexuality.

    12. Just picked it up at a thrift store because it looked funny I made it to the end Weird enough to keep me reading Back cover blurb by Theodore Sturgeon
