  • I love vampire lore and I d like to recommend warmly Bite a Vampire Handbook by Kevin Jackson, published by Portobello Books, but I can t it s too rushed, too breathless Though well enough written Bite carries a certain infelicity of style, due in part, one suspects, from a hurried publication to catch a past holiday market There is far too much parenthesis and a number of annoying typos Still, it did tell me some things, some aspects of vampire tradition that I did not know, and might serve as [...]


  • Prima lettura del nuovo anno, un saggio assolutamente interessante sulla nascita della figura del vampiro mi sono segnata un sacco di libri e film a tema che devo assolutamente guardare.


  • Mother dearest purchased this in an effort to tell me It s okay that you read about dead things, I m not freaked out by that.


  • Vampires are and have been for a long time a source of fear, a mythical creature of the night that has spawn many legends and stories A complete run down of their history, legends, stories, influences, ect would no doubt take a very long time and the book would be thick and heavy BITE however is not a thick or heavy book, but it does include a lot about vampire history and lore, and just enough to satisfy those of us who are interested in the subject.Read supermarcey 2014 01 20 boo


  • Despite vampires being one of my favourite things in the whole world, this book wasn t as riveting as I d hoped All the usual suspects are covered ways to destroy a vampire, Vlad the Impaler, Stoker, Meyer, etc but the writing is flat and dull in places I was also surprised that Charlaine Harris and Poppy Z Bryte were hardly present in this book not at all, in Bryte s case And no mention of Eric Northman whatsoever


  • An ok read but needed a bit depth I thought that the early history was covered in sufficient depth but the modern was skimmed over slightly It would have been nice for detail on later works It seemed like the author was running out of steam and rushing to finish Unless, of course, the assumption was that detail wasn t needed on the later works as we are already familiar with them


  • Kevin Jackson s childhood dream was to become a vampire Instead, he wrote a handbook on everything he knows about them From Dracula to Buffy to Bella, he tells us everything about being a vampire He writes about the undead and their progress through the ages He includes what they eat, where to find them, how to recognise them and how to kill them Only recommended for real Vampire fans.


  • Written with the dry assurance and comical wit of one who knows something about everything, Bite is a slim compendium of vampire lore and entertainment If it takes one to know one, you d have to wonder if Jackson isn t a vampire himself A truly fan g tastic and enjoyable read


  • A guide to vampires, full of stories, facts, list and trivia Everything you need to know about the creatures of the night The book itself was ok and it had a lot of information that was interesting but I ve read the same thing in countless other books so there was nothing really new to me.
