I pick this book because people I heard if you love Twilight you would love this! Well I'm a die hard Twilight fan and I lived in the south all my life and I just could't get past chapter 6. I wanted to like this book sooooo much! I need to find another twilight fix . This is not it!!! I will try and listen to this book later again,
I only bought this one because I watched the HBO series True Blood and loved it. I don't think it made a difference in how I feel about the book. I wouldn't have enjoyed it even if I hadn't watched True Blood. I don't plan to listen to any of the sequels. I just comes across a little juvenile.
Horribly written, terrible story, even worse narration. I had heard such wonderful things about this series, but I couldn't find even 1 redeeming quality.
Sookie was horribly over acted and all the male characters had the same monotone lack luster voice.
I didn't like any of them.
Nearly anyone. Johanna has a weirdly fake sounding accent and the pronunciation and enunciation of certain words just makes my ears hurt sometimes. She has a strange cadance too... I have listened to 1-2 Audible books a week for over a year and I have never had this strong of a dislike for any narrator.
I loved the story and I want to continue reading the series. I wish I could buy a version with a different narrator.
I wish there was another version I could buy narrated by someone else. Southern accents are hard to listen to when they sound fake. It's like an 'in-between' accent that really doesn't fit well for me.
i love this book and the tv show i cant wait to read the rest. i wish she did not stop writing this seril. once you start reading you will want to keep with it.
The story-line was different, and kept me interested. The characters southern accent really got on my nerves though. And I really didn't like Sooki, to be honest.
She got the essence of a southerner down pat.
I read the second book in the series, but couldn't go on after that. Sooki's character paired with the southern drawl just grated on my nerves too badly.
No, I am not sure I would read any other of the 11 books in this series. Nothing personal...just not my type of book.
The story kept you interested. This book was recommended to me by a number of people. I am just not into comical vampire drama.
The vampire is named Bill - Seriously?
Actually, I had to push myself to finish. The narration is perfection. She makes the book. Charlaine Harris is prolific with a large following. She has an large fan base....I am just not one in it.
I am not much of a t.v.watcher so I had no idea this was the basis of a Vampire series that's been on HBO for quite sometime. I read the book description and hoped it would be similar to the Nightside series by Simon R. Greene. I was disappointed that it turned into more of a Laurell K. Hamilton (whose books mutated from slight romance into full out soft porn) type of thing. I wanted a mystery, i didn't get much of it at all and this will keep me from buying any of the other books in the series.
I listened to the entire book because of Johanna Parker's interpretation for the most part. Besides the fact that I spent money on it and wanted to give the whole book a chance. I would not have done this had it been a hardbound or paperback.
The book art and reviews I read gave the impression that this was a benign book about love. I just could not get thru the graphic sex. Give me the
I did not get to the end
The accent was great
I think I said enough
