I love books and animals.I enjoy all sorts of genres, anything from history to supernatural.
I loved the way that the narrator interpreted Charlaine Harris’s writing.
The town and life that these characters live is believable, with the small town mentality and reels you in wanting to know more. I give Charlaine 5 stars for writing.
The narrator was perfect. Absolutely fantastic and believable, she put so much emotion into the narration of this book. I give the narrator 5 stars for the narrating.
I recommend this book, and I will definitely be listening to the rest of the Sookie Stackhouse series.
This has been the absolute best series! I'm now listening to the last book in the series and trying to savor each and every minute! You'll really enjoy them all!
I've been loving the fact that I can listen to books instead of just reading it [slow reader], and this is perhaps one of the most enjoyable piece of literature I have had the pleasure of coming across with.
Kudos to both Author and reader! Superb Storytelling, I can't wait to get the whole series and devour them with gusto. Sookie Stackhouse ROCKS!
artist, educator, mother and avid lover of a good story.
If you are someone who is well read and enjoys vampire stories and concepts, this is the wrong book for you. Actually all the books you should run in the other direction from in this series. I have read all Anne Rice books which I loved. I also read the Stephanie Meyers Saga and that was written for children which was better composed then this garbage. Harris writes her characters with lack depth or insight. The storyline is weak and it's written like all the south is full of white trash. I can't read another second of it. Hope no one makes the same mistake I did by listening to the other reviews on this site.
I understand that it's more cost-effective to hire only one narrator for an unabridged audiobook, but when that one narrator has to narrate a sex scene, including dialogue, between a man and a woman, the result is less than enthralling.
Add to that the fact that Sookie Stackhouse comes across as limp as a noodle magnolia in this first outing, and you've got only a mildly enthralling audiobook.
I just could not get into this book at all. The characters lacked depth and the plot was weak weak weak. The narration was even annoying. Do not download.
I found the book flat & dull compared to the TV show. I'm not talking about the sex in the TV show but the character development. In my opinion, the show does a better job of developing the characters than the book does. I recommend skipping the book(s) and getting the DVDs (if you can tolerate the sex scenes and other adult content).
Narrator for the audio book was good though.
