A year ago, Cal Thompson was a college freshman more interested in meeting girls and partying than in attending biology class. Now, after a fateful encounter with a mysterious woman named Morgan, biology has become, literally, Cal's life.
Cal was infected by a parasite that has a truly horrifying effect on its host. Cal himself is a carrier, unchanged by the parasite, but he's infected the girlfriends he's had since Morgan. All three have turned into the ravening ghouls Cal calls Peeps. The rest of us know them as vampires. It's Cal's job to hunt them down before they can create more of their kind. . . .
Bursting with the sharp intelligence and sly humor that are fast becoming his trademark, Scott Westerfeld's novel is an utterly original take on an archetype of horror.
This book = awesome!
at first the book seem kind of bored but after a couple of pages, i couldn't put it down. Amazing story, with cool action and detective job!
If I had to recomend this book, I would say read it, is interesting, funny in some parts and exciting!
This book is a beautifully written gothic fantasy novel, that anyone from the age of 13 to 30 can enjoy. I must agree with the previous reviewer that it is awefully refreshing to listen to a Westerfeld book read by a descent narrator, unlike the woman who reads the Uglies series. Peeps presents a refreshingly unique view of vampires, and I absolutely recommend it to anyone, especially if you enjoyed the Uglies series or the Twilight series.
Absolutely Blown Away...
Peeps shocked me. At first I wasn't sure, after reading the summary where it calls Vampirism a "disease" because I generally try to keep away from vampire stories where they try to make it all scientific, but as soon as I started reading I realized that it wasn't like that at all. Westerfield uses his words intelligently and doesn't throw in anything...unnecessary. His characters and plotline are shockingly interesting and the level of terror and revulsion he reaches with this book is amazing. A very good read...or listen if you just want to buy the audiobook. The narrator's voice seems bareable so I'd say it's a good investment.
