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>
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.
This book doesn't have a clear story to it. Many of the characters seem superfluous until the end. It doesn't really climax either.
There's nothing like a good Sookie Stackhouse mystery. I am impressed that Charlaine Harris has managed to keep the story fresh and exciting. She always surprises me. I'm still interested in and excited about the inhabitants of Bon Temps, Louisiana.
Johanna Parker brings the entire story to life. I love the voices she gives to all of the characters, it adds another dimension to the on-going story. In my opinion, Johanna's reading of the Sookie Stackhouse books is better than reading them myself.
