I'm not into this genre all that much- but I wanted something to listen to and with the hype about a movie deal in the works- my partner and I decided to give this a go.
It was absolutely enthralling. We listened to all three books within a week. And come to find out our son has read the first two books and was waiting on the third book to become available in his library.
We're both 39 and our son in 13. So there is a lot of appeal all across the age spectrum. I highly recommend this series- but be ready to devote some time to it- because you're not going to want to put it down!!! I hope you enjoy it half as much as we did.
Absolutely.. It's a long book, but it was so enjoyable and I love, love. love the reader- Mrs.Kate Mulgrew.
The story made me love, care, and hate the characters- just the right amount of information and backstory - the emotions came out of the reader's words - I found myself longing to hear more, hating to have to stop the story and looking forward to listen again.
The way her voice carried the emotion and painted a perfect picture of the cast of characters, the way she transitioned locations- perfect reader for this story.
YES!!!! It's quite a book to listen to- almost twenty hours- but it never left me cold or wanting the story to pick up.
It's been a while since an audio book has grabbed me and satisfied me the way this have. It has restored a lull in my love for audio books.
A little sad to see this final book come and go. It feels like a return to the magic that was the first books that grabbed me and made me feel really good.
The massive return or mention of characters spread across the entire series.
She is the voice of Sookie to me- I love her and hope she can find another series to lay claim to. Absolutely one of the best narrators out there.
I think HBO's True Blood has already laid claim to that concept- "Waiting Sucks"
Even if you've become unhappy with the series- give this one a chance and give Sookie the send off she deserves. You may not like the ending- but the book in it's entirety is a great read- and brings so much closure to the entire series. Thank you Charlaine for sharing Sookie's world and Bon Temps' secrets. It's been time well spent- and I may just have to re-listen again sometime, because I'm really going to miss you.
This is my least favorite of the series- but if you combine it and listen to the fourth book right after- the two combine and make magic. I'm also really pleased with the ending- and the setup for the fifth book.
