It follows the protagonist, Cal Thompson, as he lives with this parasite and tries to uncover a possible threat to the whole population of the world.

A really good read for me, anyway. Because I enjoyed the series I set out to try some of the author's other works. Unfortunately, the title "Peeps" sounded interesting because it had the subject of "vampires" in it. It's a lie.

In all seriousness, I could see this becoming a television show or movie. It isn't preachy or too fanciful like the works of Anne "Lolcow" Rice or Heaven forbid, Stephanie Meyer. It actually tries to detaill the idea that Vampirism could have started out as a kind of parasite which which influences the culture of people around it and messes with your mind to make you do things to spread it easier, like biting.

I won't go into too many details, but its a good read, makes you feel like the setting could be right outside your window, and kinda makes you wish such a thing could actually exist. The characters are relatable and have the feel of someone tossed into circumstances beyond their control and more or less have the look and feel of ascended geeks; or people who read such fiction and find a kind of ambivalence to their circumstnaces rather than mortal terror.

Another fresh take on the 'vampirism as an illness' is that, rather than give into the cliche of vampire hunters we have characters whom are sympathetic and attempt to treat the afflicted with drugs that surpress the parasites' growth and rehabilitation rather than 'Gwar, slay and kill'.

Again, this would make a fantastic movie. If only people weren't so focused on drivel like Newish Moon.

I ordered a used copy and it came in great condition. I've read this book many times before, but I needed my own copy. I always love 1st-person narrated stories, so I really like Cal's voice in this. The even-numbered chapters are also fun reads (though a little creepy) and add to the story... sort of like an educational commercial break!

WARNING: Depending where you order from, the cover might be different. The cover on mine was different (I took a picture). This was the cover I actually wanted, though--I got lucky--but it would be misleading to others if they were expecting the current cover that's shown. This was the cover of the copy I first read, so I really like it. :)

You may have heard about them before, but they aren't what you think. They have superhuman strength and can hear, smell, and see things from farther away than you can imagine. These Peeps, or Parasite-Positives, start to hate the sunlight and everything else they've ever loved. And they begin to crave human blood, the kind still flowing through people's bodies.

So when Cal Thompson moves to New York City and spends the night with Morgan, a girl he's never met, his desires and passions change forever. He finds out he's been infected by the parasite, but not in the worst way. He's only a carrier, which means he's able to control his desires, to a point. Even still, he's not allowed to kiss or do anything else with a girl because things could get out of hand, and the last thing he wants is to infect someone else.

Cal gets a job with the Night Watch, a secret organization as old as the city itself, searching the streets for parasite-positives. His investigation leads him to a girl named Lace, who has information that may be able to help him. He's forced to fight back his fear of infecting her because he needs her help to follow this strange trail of clues that may end up changing everything, once again.

There's something special about a novel that can take the mysteriously paranormal and make it seem so everyday, so normal. Perhaps it's the way every other chapter offers an intriguing glimpse into the world of parasites and the way that resonates with the cleverly-crafted storyline of Scott Westerfeld's PEEPS. Or maybe it's Cal's encounter with the unknown and the way he grapples with his fears that connects with readers and, ultimately, entertains them.

Scott Westefeld has grown to become one of my absolute favorite authors. He can write just about anything. From Leviathan to Pretties, he's so... ugh, what's the word? Resilient, diverse, creative, captivating.

This is no exception. For a quick read, this one fits the deal. Interesting biology/parasitology facts written real witty and fun? Check. A compelling and unique story that'll leave you breathless and make you thirst for the next chappie? Check. Typical glittery vampire love story? no check. This is not your typical one. An awesome, likeable character? Check. Completely plausible fictional-historical facts? Yep. Action-packed, nail-biting plot? you got it. Go for it.

The best interpretation of vampires I have ever come across in fiction, and just a treat for any boy (or girl) who liked to talk about gross things when they were a little kid. Or for anyone who finds the more unnerving parts of human bacterial relations fascinating.

Going off that description, it sounds like a strange book--and it is. But it's also an awesome book. One of my favorites.

Go read this.
