It made me remember why I fell in love with True Blood.
Bill and Sookie
Don't know haven't read the book.
Parker is a very good reader and keep the story moving. But they could of shorten the book atleast a hour
Very good reader and does a good job of keeping the characters separated
I would listen again because the story line is interesting.
What I liked best about the story is that Sookie's point of view is a believable and probably similar to what others would think/do if these things happened.
True Blood ;)
This book brought me back to why I loved True Blood to begin with...great characters and a great story line. Similar to the show but different enough to keep me interested and listening. It makes me miss season one of True Blood.
This is a 3 part book but only 2 parts are available on Audible. There is no obvious place on Audible to make this complaint. The book itself is great, but not $30 for only 2/3s of the story great.
Oh Sookie Stackhouse...I have to say, I listened to the first four in the series all in a row and felt like my brain was turning to mush. I'm not real big on vampires and such, but I admit that I thoroughly enjoyed these books. If you are looking for something that is entertaining, and yes, even a bit of a page-turner, give Sookie a try. They are fun. Just maybe mix it up a little and don't listen to them all at once!
I am a huge fan of the spookiest stack house books, a great enjoyable listen
The voice was great, and I definitely got into the store. Her tone was perfect
Driving down lovers lane with a vampire
I am normally not a fan of this genre, but I am a fan of True Blood. Overall I found the book quite enjoyable and I would like even if I was not a fan of the genre or the show.
The narrator did a great job of portraying Sookie. Her southern accent was spot on and she portrayed the emotions of Sookie quite well. I could almost believe that it was Anna Paquin herself doing the read.
Buy it. Enjoy it. Read the rest of the series. I know I will.
It seems like most reviewers rave about the voice given to Sookie by the narrator, but I think that was the worst part. The accent given to Sookie did not sound like Louisiana and she also sounded very butch and masculine. I had a hard time not picturing her with short hair and wearing blue jeans and a T-shirt, looking like a guy (maybe a cigarette behind one ear). The performance of the narrator, however, was great and I even really liked the guy voices, I just never got used to the voice given to Sookie.
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!
The concept behind this story is wonderful. The first book in the series doesn't disappoint. It really draws in the reader. I wish I'd have listened to this before I saw the HBO series True Blood based on these books. The narration is fantastic. Good listen.
