Book Review #71 - Nightlight: A Parody by Harvard Lampoon

About three things I was absolutely certain. 

First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. 
Second, there was a vampire part of him - which I assumed was wildly out of control - that wanted me dead. 

And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologic ally, and disreputably wished he had kissed me. 

And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon's hilarious send-up. 
Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon, looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events - Edwart leaves his chips untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball! - Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive? 

Complete with romance, danger, insufficient guardianship, creepy stalkerlike behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.   

My Rating: 2.5/5 

I have had the opportunity to buy this book numerous times but didn't because I thought I wouldn't like it. 

The book doesn't have a plot and it wouldn't make sense unless you have read Twilight. 

It was fast paced and a really quick read. I finished the book in 15-20 minutes.
I found less than a quarter of the jokes funny, although when I did they were hilarious. 

This is definitely a book that I will not be buying my own copy of.
