I think I would listen to it again. I would do so because I've forgotten so much and I want to finish the series. It's hard to remember what happen in the books vs the TV show.
I can't say it was.
True Blood is a good show, this is a good series. Yet I don't think they are at all related. True Blood took a departure from the books and became it's own thing.
Funny. Thrilling. Southern. I tried reading this book twice and couldn't get into it. Amazon kept recommending the book to me so I got it here in audio. I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to hearing the next one. This book is one that the audio version is better than the paper version.
I am a huge fan of the Anita Blake vampire series by Laurell K. Hamilton. Again another recommendation by Amazon I kept avoiding bc vampires and scifi are usually not my thing but after one book I was hooked.
I really enjoyed the scene where Sookie saves Bill and when she goes to Bill's house and the other vampires are there.
No. I originally was listening to it in the car. But I live so close to work and home I wasn't getting through it very fast and I started really getting into it. So I started listening to it in bed before I went to sleep.
If you are like me and not usually into vampires or sci fi give this book a try. I have to have the setting of the book as the hear and now and then I can do paranormal.
I wouldn't necessarily consider the audio version to be better than the print version which I did read. But the audio performance was decent and there were distinct enough voices for the characters.
The plot isn't nail biting as if you are paying attention you can figure out who the killer is fairly early on. But it's an enjoyable read and an enjoyable listen.
I haven't listened to any of Johanna Parker's other performances before so I can't compare it.
I did not have an extreme reaction to this book.
This is a pretty good (not great) story and a pretty good reading to go along with it. I do recommend it as an easy fun listen while commuting.
I found this book to be quite charming. The romance that developed between Sookie an Bill was very tender and not overly graphic. The murder mystery was well developed but I was a little sad to see some of the characters killed off so early in the series. I look forward to reading the next book.
I've read these books many times and the audio version is great! She does a very good job distiguishing different main characters with different voices/accents. The characters sound like I imagine them.
This series was recommended to me a long time ago but I just got around to starting it. So far so good, I'll definitely stick with it through the rest of the series.
Not a huge fan of the narrarator. She makes the male characters sound like droning robots. She does an ok job with everything else though. I've heard worse.
No. Her male voices are terrible. All male characters sound exactly the same. Monotone and emotionless.
Johanna Parker is fantastic and keeps you enthralled. She is a real voice talent. I don't know how she does it but her voice is shockingly like Anna Paquin's. So if you enjoy HBO's True Blood, you'll love these books. The books are not completely true to the show so you get the characters you love and some similarity in the plot lines, but there are enough differences to hold your interest.
the narrarator and knowing / comparing to twilight saga since meyers got many of her ideas after listening to these.
laugh a lot at sookie; her innocence and reactions.
listened to the first two ... uncertain if i'll continue w/the rest.
I love the narration of this story. The story is set in New Orleans and the narrator has just the perfect amount of drawl to really fit the characters without being distracting.
I read a lot of mystery novels and am pretty good at figuring them out before the big reveal. This one kept me guessing until pretty close to the end without having a
There is certainly some sex in this novel. I wouldn't say there's
yes it was funny suspenseful and scary all in one
the book is o k but not one of my favorites to silly
