The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This novel is bananas! At first I just thought it was campy, snarky fun and then the storyline went completely sideways. At times I wasn’t sure if there was a vampire or if there would be another explanation for the disappearances and strange happenings. .
The female characters are confusing – especially the women in the book club. I liked Patricia and her anxiety. I wanted to throttle her kids and husband. The other husbands all seemed like the same abusive and distant man.

The plot could’ve been shorter. I didn’t think there needed to be so many moves before Patricia dealt with her nemesis, Jim.

The descriptions of living in the south and the summer heat are spot on. The social inequities between the Old Village and Six Mile are disheartening but true. .

Because I borrowed this from the library, I had six days to read it. I raced through it in 2 days. It was just a crazy, fun story.
