REVIEW OF: HOW TO CATCH AND KEEP A VAMPIRE by DIANA LAURENCE
When the book "Twilight" came out, I was not interested. I thought I would not like books about vampires. Well, I decided to read it just to see what it was all about, and I got hooked and read all the books. Now I have been reading several different kinds of vampire books. I can tell you that there is just something about vampires that I am just hooked on. Now I know from this book on how to catch a vampire that there is a name for what I am, it's a "vampriophile".
What is it that attracts women to vampires. Well, for one thing, it's the fact that vampires are so irresistible because they are never sick or get the flu, and if they want to talk about something that you wouldn't be interested in, they can just hypnotize you into being into whatever they are talking about. Here is a quote from page 18 "Now, your mortal boyfriend is certainly not going to consider grabbing you by the shoulders, pressing you into a wall, and demanding you to yield something precious, like your lifeblood, to him. Heck, nowadays he's afraid to open a door for you!. A vampire, on the other hand, doesn't give a rat's tush what is politically correct or acceptable." Vampires are unpredictable, dangerous, arrogant, and threatening and we like that.
Also, women always feel like we always have to behave like a lady and always be nice whether we feel like it or not. From page 52: "That stuff builds up after awhile, and we pretend it's not even there, until finally we are what vampires call -- and I'm not making this up -- "ready for nasty". We are ready for a bad vampire, but not an evil one. You will learn about the different types of vampires after you read this book. Maybe that is what draws me to vampires so much is the fact that they are so hot and in control.
There is a secret to wearing the red satin ribbon, but I will let you read the book to find out what that is all about.
If you think about converting to a vampire, you need to read Chapter 9. It has perks, such as not paying life insurance, being sexy and beautiful. The downfall is that once you are a vampire, that's all you will ever be.
Also you will learn more about what it's like if you decide to convert to a vampire.
After reading this book, I truly felt like the author had been with vampires, and this book was kind of like a "vampires for dummies" book.
I gave it 5 stars out of 5!
