Publisher's Summary

With a rabid fan base that grows larger each day, the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Sookie Stackhouse mysteries by acclaimed author Charlaine Harris are not to be missed. Along with their phenomenal popularity, the books have also captivated critics and earned such prestigious honors as an Anthony Award.

Wedding fever has come to Bon Temps, Louisiana! Unfortunately, buxom, blonde, beautiful, and telepathic cocktail waitress Sookie is not the bride-to-be, so she takes the opportunity to travel to New Orleans on family business. As heir to the estate of her newly dead cousin Hadley, Sookie unearths a big secret. Soon it becomes clear that more than a few people will do anything to stop Sookie from looking into Hadley's past. Fresh, fashionable, and a little bit frightening, Definitely Dead is the best entry yet in an endlessly entertaining series.

Listen to more titles in the Sookie Stackhouse series.

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    Story
    "Pretty good addition to the series :)"

    FYI - There is a #5.1 in the series, One Word Answer, that tells how Sookie found out about her cousin's death. I found it for free online and would recommend reading it before moving on to this book.

    3.5-4 stars

    This was a pretty good addition to the series. Things are going alright for Sookie as the story begins and Quinn (a were-Tiger she met in book #5) asks her out on a date. Unfortunately, their first date does get interrupted by an unfortunate event that heralds the beginning of more issues. Sookie's cousin (who was a Vampire and involved with the Vampire Queen) experienced her "final death" recently and Sookie gets called to New Orleans to sort out the estate. When she gets there, Sookie finds herself drawn into some pretty serious Vampire politics as well as having to deal with some shifter issues left over from a past issue/encounter. She also finds out some things about Bill that makes sure that she'll never be getting back together with him (IMO this was a good thing even if Sookie was hurt by her discovery). Fortunately, Sookie gets through things well and in relatively good health and still dating Quinn as the story ends.

    This was a pretty enjoyable story. I liked Sookie in this story and like the fact that she's dating Quinn. TBH, I would like to see her get together with Eric (and there still seems to be a possibility hanging between them) but Quinn seems like a good guy so I'm open to their relationship. The story itself was quick paced and kept me engaged so I'd recommend it. :)

    I can't get enough! I thought I might lose interest after the first couple books (that's what normally happens) but not with this story!

    "I Love Sookie Stackhouse!!!"

    I waited to write a review until I listened to all 12 books. I loved them all. Sookie is a breath of fresh air small town girl who has had problems in the past with romance because she has the gift of reading minds. Imagine going on a date and hearing everything the guy was thinking... Not good. With vampires out of the closet, she finds she can't read vampire minds. Finally she can have true romance. There is also Mystery, Murder, and Mayhem and more supernatural creatures to be revealed!
    I loved all the characters and how the story unfolded through all the books. It was bitter sweet that it had to come to an end. I was going to watch True Blood on HBO until friends told me it wasn't nearly as good as the books and had way too much porn!! I will leave the same review for all twelve books. Sookie just wouldn't be Sookie without Johanna Parker, I loved her voice!

    "Unpredictable pleasure"

    This series is a pleasure partially because it is unpredictable. It is a light romantic mystery type of adventure with a paranormal twist but the series should be read in the order it was written.

    There is plenty of drama in the interwoven storylines that including a miscarried baby, the marriage of the Queen of Louisiana and the King of Arkansas that involves Sookie's cousin's (Hadley) murder, a new love interest with a were tiger, the great revelation by Bill that is forced by Eric, the revealed truth about Sookie’s blood type and why it so attractive to Vampires and much more. Have I peeked your interest?

    The book is worth the read but as I said earlier the books should be read in the order they were written. Thus, I am getting very annoyed with the amount of backtracking to bring non-readers up to speed. Yes, I can and do skip these parts but it is still annoying. That is one of the reasons that I cannot give this book a five star rating. The other reason is the introduction of the psychotic family of Debbie Pelt. It makes absolutely no sense and the book does not need this added drama.

    I've listened to all the books thus far and I loved the narrator's voices for all the characters and her acting capabilities.

    Story
    "One of my favorite books"
    Would you listen to Definitely Dead again? Why?

    Yes, I love the introduction of Quinn the were-tiger. I wish he was in the series more than he was. I also like that Eric is annoyed that Sookie is looking else where for male companionship. I think it is kinda of cute that he has to deal with his feelings about Sookie.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is the date between Sookie and Quinn. He like her so much and seems really fun to be with. It is unfortunate that Sookie gets so upset with him, so quickly.


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

    What is hidden beneath.


    Any additional comments?

    Great series. Love the way Charlaine Harris writes her books. The stories are always action back and yet endearing.

    "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!
