Book Review: The Twilight of Lake Woebegotten

The Twilight of Lake Woebegotten by Harrison Geillor

This is a wonderful and hilarious 'Twilight' spoof. Bonnie Grayduck moves to the small town of Lake Woebegotten and is intrigued by the brooding Edwin Scullen. Bonnie swiftly learns her beloved is a vampire and plans to get him to turn her into one too. You see Bonnie pretends to be ordinary and clumsy but in reality she is a murderous sociopath.

Bonnie manipulates her dim vampire stalker and draws in hot werebear Joachim Noir as well for some love triangle drama. What Bonnie does not know is that the town is also home to a cadre of Interfaith vampire hunters as well as someone who knows who and what she really is. It is all heading for a big showdown. This is a very good deconstruction of the Twilight saga.

Best Line:
"The newcomers looked like, well, dirty hippies, or more like if two male models and a high-class hooker decided to give up their fame and fortune and go hike the Appalachian trail in clothes they stole off some hobos."
