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.
The book would have been better if ms Harris hadn't approached the book as a way to ensure readers would not ask for another volume in the series she assassinated my interest in bontomps and sookies life it was contrived predictable and unsatisfying
Shopping with Tara it was the one scene that felt as real as her previous works
Don't waste ur time read a fanfic instead it will undoubtably be better
This is not the best Sookie Stackhouse book, but still a fun book. I love Johanna Parker's interpretation of Sookie. I am sad for it all to end.
Yes, and do
She's one of my favs. She has a great range with different voices.
I love books! But my family of 8 leave me little time to read, lol. Audible has been the perfect solution!!!
Probably, I love the world of Sookie Stackhouse!
She is a perfect as the voice of Sookie!
Since this series is the basis for the HBO series True Blood (which family & friends rave about) and since I rarely watch TV, I wanted to know what all the hype was about. Devils, witches, vampires, werewolves, fairies, shapeshifters, and some I hadn't heard of before...Good Grief! What a menagerie! (All I could think of was, when are the zombies going to show up?) I didn't find the mishmash of characters interesting, nor the characters individually, nor the plot. Maybe I am just bored with the flood of vampire/etc/etc stories inundating the scene. The reader was good and so I was able to finish the listen.
