I didn't know what to expect from the title, but the story pulled me in and I ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting! While the book seems intended to get a certain message across, the story is more nuanced. The thoughts and actions of the vegans and vampire were juxtaposed in such a way that enhanced my understanding of veganism without being too preachy. And more than that, it made me consider that being at the top of the food chain comes with great responsibility. I was asking myself: can a vampire who violently feeds on humans change her ways? And can we humans who feed violently on livestock (thanks to widespread factory farming practices) change ours? It left me with some uncomfortable and challenging things to think about. The story is filled with interesting and provocative imagery to keep you entertained, as well. I recommend it!

Like others, I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, and honestly, it took a few chapters before I was drawn in. But, I ultimately enjoyed this book for the vivid character development and scene descriptions. I didn't feel as though the author hit me over the head with vegan propaganda, but that could be because I knew that veganism was a major theme. I did appreciate the resources available for those who do want to further explore veganism or vegetarianism. Overall, it's a quick read that makes you think.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be absorbing, thought-provoking, mature, titillating and with a wry sense of humor. Even though it deals with a dark subject, it is fundamentally optimistic about the human condition. Sardonic in places. Good style. Merlene Vassall might single-handedly stop one-night stands.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed the book and it was a quick read. I was surprised about all the spiritual symbols/references, i.e., karma, compassion, the journey we must all take in life, etc. I don't particularly like vampire stories or movies. But of all the characters in the book I liked Pearl (the Vampire) the most. After mentally adjusting to her first "kill", I enjoyed the descriptions of her getting ready to go "out to dinner" and choosing her victims.

I think the fact that the police never caught up with Pearl makes the story even more real/believable. Wake up, people!! That's how it is in the District of Columbia. So many people who disappear or are found dead in this city and it's only when people keep insisting to the police or go to the media, do the police say, "If anyone has any information, please let us know, blah, blah...." It's the people who do the police work. The police are only effective when they are on the scene when a crime is being committed otherwise they depend on the public giving them leads. I could go on and comment about everything but I'll stop here. Read the book, there is something for every one to ponder.

Format: Paperback
The Vampire and the Vegan allows all readers to fall into a world that has not been thought of in the past. The fact that the vampire, Pearl, can visualize the animal slaughter while feeding was a place I was not expecting to go. I'm glad I did because it gave me a different take on my diet and on how vampires are viewed in literature. Her relationship with Salaam blossoms throughout the book and Salaam's sensibilities are well played through the author. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a different take on what they already have read about vampires. This book is well written with excellent character development and the story keeps the reader involved to the last page. I look forward to the rest of the series.
