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.
Making inevitable choices
The ending. I thought the ending was week but I suppose predictable.
All of the sookie stackhouse books. She is fantastic!
I was really surprised by this series. I loved it and loved Sookie and the other characters. It was fun to listen to and overall very entertaining.
I do not consider it to be better, though the narrator is excellent, the story remains the same. However, it is as good and having read the book already served as a great way to revisit the story. I lover Parkers Southern drawl.
The way that everything wrapped up nicely for each character in the end.

This whole series is wonderfully entertaining, the stories are great fun, the characters interesting and often hilarious and the narrator is great. I've read all the books and am gradually revisiting them all via audio. So sad this is the last new story, but looking forward to hearing all the rest over and over.
This is a great series 4 to 5 stars for each book except this one but if you listened to the others in this series you need to hear how it ends.
I loved her narration on the previous 12 books but something was off on her narration of this book. Still enjoyable but not as enjoyable as the other books.
The book is worth listening too just don't get your hopes up that it is as good as the other ones. I did not like the way through most of the beginning and throughout the book how it took place from different points of view other then Sookie's. The story was not as suspenseful or exciting as the others. I read a lot of reviews before getting this book and most were negative and for good reason Harris changed the way she told this story and it was a letdown as compared tot he rest of the series but it is worth getting to see how the story ends and it was not horrible it was good but the rest of the series was great.
yes, if they liked the Dead Ever series
The book was really quite good. I would have a hard time picking just one moment.
The accent, the feelings of the characters.
Sad that this is the last of the series. It didn't seem like a last book. There were no real finality feelings in the book. It was a weird ending. Things sort of came full circle, in a way, between Eric and Sookie but a disappointing way. Actually, it was the only way it could really end between them & it left Bill in nowhere land. I did like the book, it was very engrossing, and had a lot of action, and some more depth to Sookie's character.
I was very disappointed in the final book. The "F" word was used, it's like Ms. Harris did not write this book. and the story was draw out, just to slam to an end.
For a true fan of these books, no...it's would be easier to just stop with #12.
Billie and sam
Finish the series properly or add another book with Spookie and Sam, having a marriage and children.
Look upward and see the wonders I've seen
A masochist. I stayed with this author until the bitter end, but the last two books were dreadful. The one previous to that was so dark and disturbing I wish I had skipped it.
Gone back and read her own series before writing those last three or four books. I cannot believe the same person who wrote Dead To The World and All Together Dead. Gone is the wonderful humor and the report between the characters. She turned Eric into a shadow of his former Viking Vampire self and made Sookie so uninteresting her parts of the book were hard to read. I got so sick of hearing about the Blood Bond and the Cluviel D'or. Those last two books were phones in as they were filled with filler about errands and rehashing earlier books. This series turned to junk.
None. Absolutely none. after almost 11 books of Sookie loving Eric, she ends up with Sam. She used to be able to read Sam and now she can't. Did Charlaine not read her own books? I feel robbed by this author. Hey Charlaine, go read Jim Butcher's Dresden Series. Here is an author who keeps his character true to form and keeps his audience interested.
It ended and this author will never get another dime out of me.
Totally underwhelmed, what a shame Sookie's story ended with such a disappointing book. It seems Ms Harris just took all the characters and unfinished story lines and just stuck a conclusion on each.
After finishing a great book I love the feeling of completion and regret that the book is done. So lacking at the end of this one.
There is no best. This was so poorly written I have to question who really wrote it. There are so many problems with this book that I can't cover them all. Don't waste your credit. You'll feel let down.
Parker is great. She always delivers a solid performance. She was the only bright spot in this mess of a book.
Not read any more Charlaine Harrison. She seems to be done writing or very bored with making the effort.
My bad review has nothing to do with who ended up with who. It is based only on the overall poor writing.
