    "Quinn is back!"
    If you could sum up Definitely Dead in three words, what would they be?

    Quinn is awesome.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Definitely Dead?

    The most memorable moment on Definitely Dead was probably the meeting between Quinn, Sookie, and the Weres in the bar.


    What does Johanna Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her sexy, musical, lilting voice with an awesome accent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I couldn't because I save listening to these books for my time in the office.


    Any additional comments?

    If you could be any kind of Were wouldn't you want to be a were-tiger? Yeah, you would. Then you'd be a tiger once a month!

    "Really enjoyed this one!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Definitely Dead to be better than the print version?

    Always is!


    What other book might you compare Definitely Dead to and why?

    there is really no comparison, but it does fall in the same genre as the Rachel Hollows series by Kim Harrison, which is really great also!!!


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    She is a really good Sookie...and her accent was back in full swing...so it was perfect!!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Witches, Weres and Vampires...Oh My!


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy this series and will be moving on to #7 shortly, I can not wait to hear more about Sookie and her new boyfriend...and the Vampire conference...its going to be great I am sure!!!!

    "Enjoyable"

    If you are looking for deep reading you will need to go elsewhere. There's drama, intrigue, romance, and of course all the supernatural creatures you can imagine.
    I wanted to listen to the next book as soon as I finished one. I like Charlaine Harris, and I like all the characters. It's interesting reading these after watching the True Blood shows. There have definitely been some changes in the show, the books are only from Sookie's viewpoint, so the show would have to be different to show the other people's view points. Well done.

    "I LOVE THIS WHOLE SERIES!!!!!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This series is incredibly addictive and fun. It's funny, complex, sexy, and the character of Sookie is so real. I just don't know how to give enough information to explain why it was so great. It's like that song you just love so much and yes you know you like each thing about it, but the way they all go together is just perfect. I was sad when I finished the last one. I WANT MORE!!!!!

    "Interesting twist"

    This book brings a new and interesting turn of events into light. What happens here carries through to the rest of the books and adds another level of interest. As always Johanna Parker's narration is wonderful and Charlaine Harris' writing is great. The story still wasn't as good as book 4 though.
