Just not enjoyable or interesting at all.
I have listened to other books like "How to Seduce a Naked Werewolf" and enjoyed it.
No. I could not stand to listen to that ridiculous droning Southern accent which is very unrealistic. I may have continued to listen if someone else had performed the audio.
Once I started listening, I could not stop. I really enjoyed this book and I've never read anything like it before. I'm now looking for my next in the series.
I loved Sookie's innocence.
I didn't have a favorite.
Her Southern accent isn't too "put on".
I didn't give it 5 stars because it was a bit draggy in some places.
I will be reading the series, it makes me smile once in a while. Very good
All of the character voices were believable and easy to understand, even with the accent!
Yes! It was a great balance of lusty romance, suspense, and comedy.
Yes, I have enjoyed this book very much
Just getting to know Sookie
No, this has given Sookie a real voice
I have heard of this series for quite a while, knowing that it had a tv series on it and people simply seemed to love it, so when I saw the first book in the series on sale, I was impulsive and decided to try it out. My mistake. I am not an impulsive person, often reading others reviews first to make sure it will suit my own tastes. I should have with this one, perhaps I am prudish, but the sex scenes in this book were not done tastefully. If a scene has a point, and executed properly, then fine, whatever, use it. These scenes instead seemed smutty just to be smutty and poorly done at that.
Beyond that particular problem, I just didn't connect with any of the characters. The premise of the book could definitely have promise, and perhaps the author does in fact flesh it out more in subsequent books, but I don't believe I will be reading them to find out.
One redeeming quality I must mention is the narrator. She was wonderful.
The narrator does an excellent job reading Sookie's part. The other parts are well read also. The humor is infectious.
Sookie, of course. She is a no-nonsense girl that doesn't realize she is funny.
She was able to read each characters part with incredible differentiation.
Several come to mind. Here "fresh" comments while having a vampire staked to death right on top of her. She describes herself as "disabled", this is funny, since most people would describe her as "gifted".
I just purchased the rest of the series, since it is on sale this weekend. Looking forward to them all. Incidentally, I mostly listen to non-fiction and comedy. This story is not one I would normally like, but it is so humorous I am hooked!
Say something about yourself!
Yes, I would. It was a great book. Well written and well narrated. I enjoyed the story and the reading complimented the story well.
I don't think that I can compare it to any other book I've read. It's not my normal sort of book.
She had a lot of expression in her voice and really enhanced the book with it.
