Dont have sex, because you will turn into a vampire, and die Thats the message I picked up on in Peeps Funny, because Westerfelds other book, Uglies, the message was dont pollute the environment A bit of a difference in moral there Anyway, I really enjoyed this book It wins the Weirdest Book I Have Ever Read In My Life award Scott Westerfeld has created a fantastic urban fantasy, set in modern day New York It is weird and strange, but utterly creative and highly unique Basically, Dont have sex, because you will turn into a vampire, and die Thats the message I picked up on in Peeps Funny,

In My Life award Scott Westerfeld has created a fantastic urban fantasy, set in modern day New York It is weird and strange, but utterly creative and highly unique Basically, vampirism is an STD, which the protagonist, Cal, has caught from a girl named Morgan, when they were.well, you know This makes Cal a carrier He has the disease, but not the negative symptoms He is a one in one thousand case This means he doesnt crave human flesh all the time, but he can see in the dark and run super fast Unfortunately, every girl he kisses or has sex with, he infects, and turns them into a vampire It is his job to hunt down all of those he has infected, and put them into custody But that is all backstory The actual plot of this book is him trying to catch Morgan the girl who infected him in the first place Peeps a weird book Creepy and gross at times, but still very, very good The author thought this through magnificently well Let me say this I prefer Scott Westerfeld s blood thirsty, horny vampires in Peeps, over the sparkling ones in Twilight or the love obsessed ones created by Richelle Mead Ugh No words can do this book justice I cant praise it , because that would mean including spoilers All I will say is this I definitely encourage fans of The Uglies Trilogy to try this book Also, if you are interested in vampires and want to read a completely wacky take on the ancient creatures, read this Now I will go into repetitive mode Scott Westerfeld thought this through very well He explained why vampires are scared of the sun, why crucifixes ward them off, why they break mirrors when they look at their own reflection Plus, this is just 100% weird In a great way Its a perfect blend of adventure, action, horror and scientific education I will end with my favorite quote from the book I lost my virginity to the apocalypse This is a young adult book It might be marketed for the teenage crowd, but I d say it sadult, less young Things that should not be in YA fiction four letter words including the worst one , a casual attitude toward promiscuity and uncommitted sex, visits to a gay bar, and a not very subtle contempt for religious beliefs, expressed with a condescending and scornful voice.Things in this book all of the above.If you can get past that, it s actually a pretty good book It s easy to read, w This is a young adult book It might be marketed for the teenage crowd, but I d say it sadult, less young Things that should not be in YA fiction four letter words including the worst one , a casual attitude toward promiscuity and uncommitted sex, visits to a gay bar, and a not very subtle contempt for religious beliefs, expressed with a condescending and scornful voice.Things in this book all of the above.If you can get past that, it s actually a pretty good book It s easy to read, with a fast moving plot and well written action Every other chapter gives a mini lesson in a different parasite, which sounds weird and boring but is actually interesting and a little revolting There is a lot of talk about evolution, some of which makes sense and some of which makes me roll my eyes This is not your typical vampire story Not even close There s an unexpected twist at the end unexpected by me, anyway , and in general, I quite liked it Even if I am a superstitious religious nut who believes she is not part of the chimp family I was going to say this is one of Scott Westerfeld s earlier novels, but they all seem to have come onto the scene around 2005 Instead I ll say this, it s one that s set in New York City.So, here s a reason to advocate abstinence only sex education You can turn into a vampire if you exchange saliva with the wrong person Cal, unfortunately, misses out on this lesson so after a drunken one night stand he ends up as a vampire As you might have guessed, these are not your grandmother s vampires I was going to say this is one of Scott Westerfeld s earlier novels, but they all seem to have come onto the scene around 2005 Instead I ll say this, it s one that s set in New York City.So, here s a reason to advocate abstinence only sex education You can turn into a vampire if you exchange saliva with the wrong person Cal, unfortunately, misses out on this lesson so after a drunken one night stand he ends up as a vampire As you might have guessed, these are not your grandmother s vampires Sure, the legends are the same, but that s about it Because in Westerfeld s story, vampirism is a disease spread by a little parasite called Toxoplasma So, instead of being called vampires, Cal and others who have been infected or are carriers are called Parasite Positives or Peeps for short.The upshot is that Cal is recruited by a secret government organization to hunt peeps and especially to capture those that he infected Then he has to find the girl who made him a carrier Sounds simple, right Think again As Cal gets closer to tracking down his progenitor things keep gettingcomplicated until everything Cal thought he knew to be true is thrown into question.Let me also say that you will never look at rats, or cats, the same way after reading this novel There is something about a cat with a vampiric parasite that is just so muchappealing than a normal one.The even numbered chapters of this book don t directly relate to the action packed plot described above Instead, chapter by chapter, Cal acquaints us with the world of parasitology you might want to keep the Purel handy for certain segments Some readers might find these narrative interruptions to be a bit annoying and unecessary, I d politely disagree saying that the information is interesting and, well, cool Even if you skip all the others, read chapter four It s relevant I also saw Scott Westerfeld at a reading where he read this section of the book and it was ah may zing.So, while the parasite information might be icky, the book is awesome The story is really fast paced and has a lot of action and suspense Lots of chapters end on cliff hangers that make you want to read that much faster Evenexciting, the book is just as enjoyable for male and female readers not too gory, not too mushy a happy medium Cal is a likable narrator as well as a reliable one readers know everything that he does.My only issue with the novel comes at the last thirty some odd pages because it got confusing At this point, Call learns a lot of new information which, of course, the readers also have to digest Combined with the fast pace, it got a little hard to follow everything In fact, I had to reread the last couple of chapters to be sure I knew what was going on.Confusion aside, the story was awesome I love Scott Westerfeld unconditionally, but this book was lots of fun to read The set up and early chapters prepare you for one kind of book, but by the end it s something entirely different If you want a new take on an old monster, Peeps is your book.You can find this review andon my blog Miss Print
