72 Bewitching Book Tours review: interview with a Jewish vampire by Erica Manfred

Oy vey, have you got the wrong vampire. - The Fearless Vampire Killers, 1967 film

Interview with a Jewish Vampire
Rhoda Ginsburg is a Jewish middle-aged freelance journalist. through JDate, she meets Sheldon who tells her that not only is he a Hasidic Jew but also a vampire. Rhoda laughs it off at first but soon realizes the truth. she falls in love with him and her affair with the undead turns out to be more than she bargained for.
author Erica Manfred's novel about Jewish vampires is definitely unique and a surprise. 
the fun begins when Rhoda informs her close friend Charlene and her mother Fanny about Sheldon. it becomes even funnier and crazier when Rhoda devises a plan to save her ocotgenarian Mom and her "goil" friends from dying of disease or old age by asking Sheldon to turn them. Wiccan witches, a golem and the tranny police are also some of the memorable characters the reader gets to meet. 
i loved the book but i noted that there were some contradictory information and details regarding the use of glamour, mobile phone numbers and smoking cigars/cigarettes. i also found it a little unrealistic that Rhoda could fly back and forth to Florida or order expensive stuff online when she hardly worked at all. she must have had some savings to fall back on to be able to afford her trips and shopping but it was not mentioned in the story. if it was, i must have missed it. 
still, this book was a pleasure to read. from start to finish, it is sexy, irreverent and one of the funniest books i have ever laid my hands on. 

*Interview with a Jewish Vampire is available at Amazon (paperback, Kindle) and Barnes and Noble (paperback). for more information about Erica Manfred and her work, please visit  www.ericamanfred.com or www.jewishvampire.com

my personal rating is:
Interview with a Jewish Vampire contains material not suitable for younger readers 17 and under.
