Sookie Stackhouse Series is a MUST read! I have listened/read all of the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries, 1 - 8. I enjoyed every single one of them. The writing is good, clear, suspenseful and humorous. The narrator, Johanna Parker, does some of the best narrating I have heard...exactly the way I would presume Sookie Stackhouse would sound. You can't go wrong with this series. I CAN'T WAIT until installment NINE!!
As a BIG Sookie fan, I liked this book but it lacked some of the romance and intrigue of all the prior books which I had really come to like. I had to READ #4 "Dead to the World" since it isn't available on Audible yet and you definitely don't want to miss it as there is alot that goes on between Sookie and Erik.
I get a little disappointed as the series goes on that she moves on to other relationships after I find one or two now that I really like...oh well.
This book, a mystery like all the rest had plenty of twists and turns and kept me reading and ignoring everyone around me to read the conclusion.
I really like supernatural books, but I didn't like this one. Some interesting twists to the plot, but overall, the story was juvenile.
I absolutely loved this book. It has everything - action, humor, supernatural, mystery, and romance. I found myself laughing out loud on my way to work many times. Would highly recommend it.
This is a delightful book. Very fun and worth the read (or listening to). I would like to see more of her books available on audible. I definitely recommand this book.
I only discovered this series a few months ago and have flown through all the books in the series so far. This my first time to listen instead of read. Narrator Johanna Parker was fantastic. She did an excellent job with the varied Louisiana bayou accents and she sounded exactly as I always thought Sookie Stackhouse might sound like, which is not usually the case with even the best of narrators. The book, on the other hand, was not as good as the previous novels. The plot was thin at best, didn't really kick in until about half way through and some of the action seemed trite and forced. I also find myself getting tired of Sookie's constant moving from one Supe to another -- it really belittles such a great heroine. I also dislike the direction the author has taken with Bill. Over the last three books he has really turned into an ass -- an immature ass at that. Overall, the book was OK and it will certainly bring me back to the next book in the series.
I love Charlaine Harris - I've read all of her Sookie Stackhouse books as well as all of her Lily Bard books. This is the only Harris book I've listened to, and while the story was everything promised, I found the reading a bit uninflected. Still, certainly worth it!
Sookie's world is getting increasingly complex and even more intriguing! A great listen - even if you haven't read the others in the series leading to this.
If you like romance with male vampires and werewolves with a little mystery on side, some male objectification, and you're a chick - then you'll probably love it.
I don't, I'm not, and I didn't
