'Fangs' (a book review)

Here is a book review of an eBook that I read a few years. I do not know if this review is still somewhere on the internet, and if it is I am sorry, but if it isn't I am going to share it here. 'Fangs' written by Frank Barvitch. There are so many different frames of mind when reading vampire stories and 'Fangs' by Frank Barvitch tries to answer "What does it really mean to be a vampire?" or another question "What does immortality really have to offer one?" Here is another question that one can think "Is it worth it?" These are the questions that Frank is answering for the readers, I believe. Even when a vampire has all his or her enhanced abilities like speed, power and sensitive senses Lawrence, who is the main character of 'Fangs' seems to be in the throws of making a choice. What is death and dying? This could be yet another psychological question that one could think about after reading this novel. Is death and dying another form of the Awakening and in further reading the description of what a 'human' goes through when dying and becoming a vampire is quite impressive and scary it seems. To me dying for the most part is not painful, but peaceful for one at this time really does not feel anymore for all the pain is over depending on the circumstances that one was going through. Lawrence is in need of companionship and 'Fangs' is his story of how lonely it is being a vampire and how many of his 'life' circumstances change.

This is a creative story just for the fact that is something different for Frank to share and has added animal vampires as in the dog and cat characters that Lawrence meets when he want out to 'feed'. Lawrence seems to be bored with his 'life'. Frank Barvitch has written a novel that is quite different from all the other vampire novels out there. 'Fangs' is the story that me think what would it be like to be dead yet 'undead' as the book showed us. Frank has written various interactions between the humans and the animals as he did with the dog and cat. This is the kind of book that shows a diversity between the various people of all persuasions human versus vampire or any other supernatural being as in animal vampire. Also, this is a novel of a personality and personalities and new traditions seen as a vampire making a choice. Frank is one with Lawrence and that is what made this a fun read.

That certainly seems like a different type of story if you like books about vampires.
Copyscape didn't find any other versions of this.

Meg, the only other books that I read of vampires were the 'Twilight' series by Stephanie Myers as well as a few youth books that were good as well.
