I loved that you got more of Sookie's family history and how a certain lawyer had a play in that. Loved that Sookie has undergone a lot of changes and I think her reaction to things are certainly going to affect her personal relationships, seems like she's on the verge of making some difficult decisions about some people in her life. I know some people though that she was too down in this book but come-on, she's not the same person as when Bill first walked into the bar - she's killed people, been tortured, not too mention someone tries to kill her 3-4 times in every book. Shoot - you'd start to be a bit of a pessimist too. Just my opinion:)
I love the character, love that she is so relatable. She's not interested in becoming a vampire like so many other female leads in these types of novels. Love the sense of humor that Ms. Harris brings into these books, and I find myself giggling out loud sometimes. I can't wait for May to come for the next book!
Excellent, best narrator ever.

When I bought this book, I noticed all the negative reviews and decided "what the heck". It was fun, I enjoy hanging out with CH's characters for a few hours, the story wasn't fabulous but it's just fine. I never thought I would make it this far in the series and I will buy book #12. If you want positive/negative details, please check out the other reviews. If you want some encouragement to hang out for a good story with some old friends, I say "Go for it!".
Yes, the narration is excellent. I absolutely love Johanna Parker, her narration is spot on and makes the book more entertaining.
That the story is being moved along and love to keep guessing to what end.
The setup for the killing of Victor
yes i would but you have to read the book before you here the audiobook
bill he still loves sooki and will still maybe still love her in a hunderd years
when bill tells sooki he still loves her
i laughed yes i did
I need more!!! I cant believe there are no more audibles yet!! I need more!! Im addicted!! Love these books more than True blood if thats possible!!!
I felt a little disconnected from this book. I wasn't pulling for Sookie here the way I usually do in most other books in this series. It almost felp like a transitional piece between what happen before and what ms. Harris needs to have happen in order to end the series the way she wants to end it.
am always ready for the next Stackhouse installment. This is a terrific series. Lots of wonderful colorful, unusual and magical characters. What an imagination the author has. Im always ready for the next one.
After listening to Kim Harrison's entire Rachel Morgan series between the release dates of books 10 and 11 of the Southern Vampire Mysteries, returning to Charlaine Harris' work was a disappointment. Book 11, like all of the Sookie books, was simply too short for my taste. I've found the Rachel Morgan series, with its richly woven tapestry of characters and numerous subplots, to be far more satisfying than this series, which seemed a bit shallow in both character development and plot in comparison. That said, this book was still enjoyable, although I was left wanting more. I agree with other reviewers that Sookie sounded quite sad throughout this book, but don't see that as a shortcoming per se.
Guess I'm the odd duck here, cause I really liked this book. I love all of the Sookie books and after having to wait awhile to hear this one, it was like reconnecting with an old friend. Sookie is not a superhero, she's a human being and has faults like all the rest of us. She can be stupid, self centered, funny, judgemental, thoughtful, kind, devious, loving and a good friend. Its what I lke about her. She's not perfect. I liked the direction the book took and like the set up for the next one... leaves me wanting more! Johanna Parker is the female version of Jim Dale - she is awesome!
