I have read all of the books in the series in print, but really enjoyed the flawless narration of this grand finale. Even though I'm sad to see the sookieverse come to a close it was enjoyable. I'm looking forward to Charlaine's new offerings!
I have no idea. I did not read the print version. What kind of a question is this, Audible? Because of you, I don't read books anymore.
This is another stupid question, Audible. Who cares what I would compare this book to. I loved this book because it isn't like any other book. It is not your typical vampire book.
Sookie. Johanna Parker is the best female reader I have ever heard in all the years of Audible books I have listened to. I crave to hear her voice. It is so entertaining! Her accent is perfect and I am from the deep south, so I consider myself an expert. :)
HBO did a terrible job at making this a series. I was so disappointed and I think they were too. The tag line would be, "Just when you think she has had enough, Sookie goes through one more level of hell and comes out alive and stronger and more interesting than ever."
I love this book series. I love this author. I love this reader. I am sad this is the last book. I am addicted to this series.
I liked her other books
books the only good thing about it was that it was the close of the series. It was just not full of heart like the others.
After investing a lot of time into the series I believe the reader deserved more. Was the writer just burned out between the TV series and the books. We, the reader, deserved more.
I waited to write a review until I listened to all 12 books. I loved them all. Sookie is a breath of fresh air small town girl who has had problems in the past with romance because she has the gift of reading minds. Imagine going on a date and hearing everything the guy was thinking... Not good. With vampires out of the closet, she finds she can't read vampire minds. Finally she can have true romance. There is also Mystery, Murder, and Mayhem and more supernatural creatures to be revealed!
I loved all the characters and how the story unfolded through all the books. It was bitter sweet that it had to come to an end. I was going to watch True Blood on HBO until friends told me it wasn't nearly as good as the books and had way too much porn!! I will leave the same review for all twelve books. Sookie just wouldn't be Sookie without Johanna Parker, I loved her voice!
Avid fan of sci-fi and James Marsters, I use audio books to inspire me to exercise, taking them on morning walks. It's a perfect combo!
I'd been told and read that the end of this series was 'bad', so I was prepared for the worst. I have a pretty good imagination and enjoy angst, so I was ready to really cry, to see lots of deaths and dismemberments, but that didn't happen. I suppose what bothers people are so many open story lines left hanging, but the ending of the book wasn't nearly as bad as I'd heard and was, in fact, it was a hopeful and happy ending in my view. It gives us a chance to use our own imaginations to write the 'final' endings for all the characters.
I'll just have to agree with a lot of the other reviewers. Characters that were thought long gone were brought back and others that should have had a bigger role were hardly heard from. There were too many convoluted and unbelievable plots and I don't even understand why some of the many who were out for revenge against Sookie were out for revenge.
All I'll say is I'm glad the series has finally ended, although I hear there is another book that's supposed to say what happened afterwards to all the characters. I also understand many were disappointed in that book, also, so I believe I'll let this one be the end of the series for me.
