A previous reviewer mentioned they would have preferred two narrators especially for the sex scene. The book, however, is a first person narrative. It would be distracting to suddenly have a second voice intrude when only one voice is represented in the novel's text.
If you like the vampire/human romances it's entertaining. As a southerner, I enjoy small Louisiana town setting. It's well done here. Often, the setting is secondary to the book, or done poorly... but here the setting feels like a character in the book. I like that.
Other than that? It's standard romantic/vampire fare. If you like that, it's quality. If Twilight left you scratching your head wondering who the intended audience was, this is probably a skipper.
I got this audiobook after I started watching True Blood (the HBO TV series, based on the books). If your a Buffy fan you would like this book. Vampires, romance, humour, great writing. What's not to love.
Great story and it proves this is a great story as to how the writers on the show stuck very close the the book! I liked the Narrator as well!
I gave it two stars only because I did manage to make it to the end (it's only about 9 hours). But I definitely won't be returning to this series. The characters are flat and boring. The *mystery* really was no mystery at all except for how the murderer wasn't detected by the main character from the very beginning. If you are looking for a good fantasy book --- this is not for you.
I was not familiar with the series or author. I scanned the reviews and thought it was horror book about vampires. Half way into the book it turned into a romance book that had vampires. I lost interest. It began, with the development of a great horror/supernatural book, but turned into a standard romance book. Made it 3/4 the way through
I loved this book. It's much better than the television series!!!! After listening to this book, I was very disappointed by the t.v. series for making so many alterations to the story.
