My reviews are rather simple but only because I want to convey my impressions of a story. I leave summaries to the publisher. LOVE Audible!
This is actually a pretty good listen. The narrator is really enjoyable. The story itself is ok but I think I have been over sold in this genre. The whole vampire thing has been done to death. I just want good ol' Dracula back. Johanna Parker is fantastic. I wish I could be more succinct in my review.
I am going to listen to the next in the series because I have already bought it. This is a take it or leave it book for me.
I like culinary mysteries. That is how I got started. I also like fiction.
This book makes my top ten "Listen to Again" list.
Sam is still there for Sookie. But even more, Sookie is there for her home town, even if they think she is "Crazy Sookie"
When Eric helps Sookie get the answers to Lafayette's murder. You can see that her defenses are falling. And Eric just keeps pushing to get Sookie to "yield".
When Sookie understands that Bill is a "hunter" by nature. That he will kill if threatened. When she knows that she can't change this but must accept it.
In this book, Sookie learns more ugly truths about the humans and supernaturals in her town. However, she still keeps her sweet and innocent nature.
I didnt read the printed version but this was excellent!
Love Sookie! I can relate to her!
If you are looking for deep reading you will need to go elsewhere. There's drama, intrigue, romance, and of course all the supernatural creatures you can imagine.
I wanted to listen to the next book as soon as I finished one. I like Charlaine Harris, and I like all the characters. It's interesting reading these after watching the True Blood shows. There have definitely been some changes in the show, the books are only from Sookie's viewpoint, so the show would have to be different to show the other people's view points. Well done.
The sex angle took over too much in this one, and it wasn't nearly as fun as a result. I will try the third one to see if it goes back to being more entertaining. Great narrator.
Fantastic, enjoyable and all together exciting!
Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniel. Both the heroines are smart, savvy and totally loveable.
I like her southern drawl. Totally lovable.
Charlaine harris makes one think that vampires, werewolves etc also love life and that they also have their rights.
Another murder has occurred in Bon Temps. Lafayette, the cook at Merlottes, where Sookie works, is found dead, with his heart cut out in the back of a local detective's car.
Then Sookie is accosted by another creature of the night called an ancient Maenad who attacks, poisons, and almost kills her. The vampires, Bill, Eric, and Pam, save her. When this happened she was on her way to meet them for an assignment. In the previous novel she had agreed to take assignments to help them using her telepathic powers.
A vampire in Dallas has gone missing and Eric, the head Vampire, asks Sookie to help locate him. In Dallas she learns about a group called the Fellowship of the Sun, an anti-vampire hate church. Sounds like some other fanatical religious groups. Sookie must find the missing vampire and then get back to Bon Temps to solve the murder of Lafayette.
I am getting hooked on the Sookie series and captivated by the world the author has created. Harris (the author) continues to draw the reader in with more tidbits about vampires and their habits and how they relate to humans. Sookie is quirky, witty, lovable and a fun character who has a sexy, although blah, Vampire love interest named Bill. Sam, Sookie's boss, is a shape shifter who we met in the first book.
The books are light, funny and fast-paced. They are fun to read, with laugh out loud pages. I'd highly recommend them to anyone who likes paranormal/romance/ mystery or just a really fun read but don’t try to compare them to something else. Let them stand on their own.
Couldn't put the book down.
Yes. I Like Parker.
Little bit of both.
These books are just plain fun to listen too. The narrator is fantastic. The books suck you in for sure. I am on number 7 and didnt start listenting to them until this month. If you are looking for something fun to listen too this series is it for sure.
It was a little short and the sub-story in her hometown was anti-climactic and weird.
Yes - it had great links to the other stories.
I love her voice and her southern accent.
