This is still not my favorite genre, I started reading this series because I am a JK Rowling fan. Although areas of this book were morbidly gross I still found myself wanting to listen. I love the main characters Strike and Robin. I enjoy not being able to predict the ending, and of course the writing is wonderful. I can't wait for another in the series....I hear there will be six books in all.
The ending to this book was unnecessary. I am fine with a book ending in this fashion if it is warranted....but this wasn't. I can honestly say that I would not have read this series if I had known the ending. I feel bad for recommending this trilogy to all of my friends....Lesson learned finish series before giving recommendations. Ms. Roth could have changed a few minor things and made this series a smash hit. I will not even go watch the movie...OH maybe I will, I bet the screen writer will change the end!!!!!
Narrators were great!!!!
I am a minority and enjoyed some of the old characters that returned. I didn't mind who she ended up with but felt that it wasn't planned well. I thought Eric and Sookie's relationship should have ended with more drama (they loved each other, and I have been team Eric for years!!!!). The plot was too elaborate and I found myself wishing I had kept notes from the previous books. I still enjoyed this book and if it wasn't the last would keep reading/listening. If you are a true sookie fan you will still love this book :)
If someone were to ask me who my favorite writer is I would respond "JK Rowling," with that said this book is Horrible. I only made it to chapter 8, could not make myself wast any more time I could spend listening to a book I enjoy. Definitly not in the league with Harry Potter. I knew it wasn't going to be fantasy but this book was just plain boring. Sorry JK :(
The narration of this series of books is excellent!!!! The story was wonderful although sometimes confusing with all of the various names and new characters. My most favorite moments were while they were visiting Matthew's father and my least favorite moments were while they were in Prague. I will not include any spoilers about the end of the book just to say get some tissues and hope the last book comes quick :)
While not as good as the first 5 or 6 books in this series I still enjoy the life of Sookie Stackhouse. I have always been team Eric but after the last book (and this book) I was a bit disappointed in Eric's character. I'm not sure where Charlaine Harris is going with this series....and I love the suspense of not knowing. I would recommend this book....it makes me want to start the series all over again!!!
The story is fabulous...if this is the only way you can "read" this book than you must download because it is a must listen/read. With that said.....the narration of this series is not what I expected.
I have read and listened to this entire series....I consider it one of my most favorite (among them HP, Twilight and Hunger Games). This series has just enough action, mystery and romance. I have also started the spin off series Bloodlines. I didn't care for the narration of the first few books in this series but they were still great. Emily Shaffer was wonderful!!!!
This must be one of the best audio books I have ever listened to. Great story wonderful narration!!!! Movie good....Book awsome.
Love the narration and Molly Harper just keeps making me laugh :) Glad that Dick made a cameo in this book.
