Interview with a Jewish Vampire Review

This book was an easy read and would definitely be a big draw due to the current vampire craze. I liked it a lot because I've always been fascinated with all things Jewish and therefore already knew some Yiddish. I did find myself a bit lost at time and having to look a few things up so perhaps a glossary of Yiddish terms could help out to make this appealing to a broader audience.

I liked how the story flowed and definitely got some great entertainment out of this book, so Erica, MAZEL TOV!
