I liked this book just as well as the others in the series. Those who complain that the book is short should look at the other books. They tend to be between 8-10 hours.
I enjoyed the new Charlaine Harris very much. A number of reviewers had said it did not further the story line of the series and they were disappointed with this installment. So thus being forewarned I was glad that time spent in Sookie's world did not require an all out war to keep me interested. The only negative was most of the voices the narrator chose. I actually cringed when Sookie's cousin Hunter spoke and don't get me started on Erik.
Hi, I am a voracious reader with a wide range of tastes.
I had read others say that they were disappointed with this book. I loved it except it was to short. There is more character story and less action. A tying up of many lose ends. A great listen.
I liked it. It isn't Shakespeare but Harris isn't aiming for it. If you want something more esoteric try Stieg Larsson's Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I own all of these books, mostly the audiobooks. To me Johanna Parker IS Sookie, how could you ask for a better narrator for these books? Even if Eric is getting a little wimpy (what is with that?) at least most of the fairies are gone. After the last book I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue with the series. I mean, a Fairy War? Evil fairies? Laughable. After sitting through that book I kind of felt like I had been tortured right alongside Sookie. This book is better.
Besides, if you're addicted to these books you know you're probably going to bite the bullet and buy it, right? I mean, it's THAT kind of series...
I'm a huge Sookie fan I have read all of the books! Don't get me wrong this was a great read I just had high expectations for the story line. There could have been a lot more sookie & eric romance in the book I'm over the fairy's and want more romance for sookie and eric. I can't wait for the next books, I read that Charlaine Harris signed on to write 3 more!!!
This was another great addition to the series; however, I'm a bit disappointed that it didn't get wrapped up as nicely as some of her other books.
The first 10 min into the book I cry ,and the is the first time I cry about a book. It had me wanted more at the end,it was over to fast>
I love always loved Charlaine Harris and Johanna Parker has a way of bringing the books to life. This was an excellent book for any who have read the series.
This book is OK I guess it seems like they are going down hill as they go along. There wasn't much that happened in it. I guess I like the ones with more stuff happening.
