    "Good read after Sookie's series"

    I have listened to all nine Sookie books and very much enjoyed them. Listening to this collection of storries helped to fill in a few holes that seemed to be evident in the series. That was great! Alas,I fear that just listening to the short stories without the knowledge of the series ahead of time would not be best introduction to a new reader. The stories might wet one's tongue for more but also give some details of the books in the series away. Read the book after the series.

    "Chronology..."

    Fairy Dust AFTER Dead to the World (#4)
    Dracula Night after Dead to the World (#4)
    One Word Answer after Definitely Dead* (#6)
    Lucky after Altogether Dead (#7)
    Gift Wrap after From Dead to Worse (#8)

    *considered essential backstory to next installment

    These are enjoyable light reading, but I accidentally revealed some spoilers to myself and I wouldn't want others to make the same mistake!

    "Johanna Parker"

    I have listened to alot of audio books and she is one of the best readers! Some of these books are read by another but don't do it. Johanna has a wonderful southern accent that makes you feel as though you are really there listening to Sookie talk. She reads with emotion which also makes the stories come to life.

    "A Touch of Sookie"

    OK I'll admit it - I am a Sookie Stackhouse junkie. After finding this series this past summer and listening to all 9 of the books in a non-stop 3-week marathon I just can't get enough of her stories. I had not read any of the short stories so this book was like a little taste of candy to help hold me over until next May and book #10.

    The familiar voices of the most excellent Johanna Parker (hint - listen to anything she narrates!) make the stories seem like letters from family. They also fill in some of the little incidental references in the books.

    All in all, it was a very enjoyable visit with beloved old friends.

    "Waiting sucks"

    I love these short stories. It really helps soothe the waiting pains between her books. I really enjoyed Dracula night.

    If you enjoy the Southern Vampire Mystery series, i would say this is an essential download.

    "Fantastic"

    If you love Sookie Stackhouse then you will love this collection of Sookie short stories.
    Some fill in gaps from the books, and other are just delightful to listen to.
    The narrator is the same from the novels and does her typical great job.

    A must for readers of the Sookie Stackhouse series. If you haven't read any of the novels, I would advise listening to the novels first, so you know all the characters and circumstances.

    "charming"

    This collection of stories was fun and imaginative. It's a great way to re-connect with Sookie while waiting for the most current book to be released. Don't expect these short stories to bring you on a long, in-depth journey in the world of Sookie. Instead, they are just little fun events that give you a little more insight into Sookie and her friends. If I had to sum it up in one word, I would say it's "charming."

    "Charlaine Harris is an amazing talented writer"

    Like the entire series written by this talented writer, not a disappointing book in any way. The story line get's you hooked from the very beginning and finishes with you wanting more. I just hope there will be more to the series as i am totally addicted to the series.

    I love Urban Fantasy, Paranormal romance and dystopian novels. I almost always have either a book in my hands, or an audiobook in my ear!

    "For Fans of Sookie Series"

    I've always wanted to read those short stories, but did not feel like buying different books to read one short story out of them. I finally got the chance to read/hear some them!
    The stories are a great addition to the main series and adds background/depth to the characters. I especially found "Dracula Night." really enjoyable and saw Eric in a different light....

    "Just the right touch"

    This audio book contains five unabridged short stories featuring the characters from the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse series. If you enjoy stories featuring vampires, fairies, witches and werewolves, you can't go wrong with this. It fills in the gaps between the main novels, but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone. A must-listen for Sookie Stackhouse fans and newcomers alike.

    "This book is very entertaining and I could not sto"

    This book is very entertaining and I could not stop until I had read the whole book. I loved the mix of characters and the plot of the book. You can listen to the book whilst basking in the sun in the park or whilst taking a walk. Absolutely beautiful.
