    "From Dead to Worse"

    Harris has done it again! I've read all her books and love her heroine, Suki Stackhouse, a Southern sweetie with the ability to read other people's minds. And wishes she could lose that aspect of herself. Her friends and lovers, and former lovers are all "supers" - supernaturals. From Dead to Worse has Suki discovering a new and very intriguing relative... or two, during a time of upheaval in the world of vamps and were's, and the people who want them dead. This audiobook kept me listening till far into the night and going to work the next day with dark circles under my eyes from lack of sleep. Can't wait till the next book in this series!

    "Always Fun!"

    Sookie is growing up and with that comes maturity and some loneliness. The characters are always great. And even in the vampire world there were victims of Katrina! I would recommend reading these book in the series order. You will laugh and cry...and say "oh my".

    "Disappointing"

    As a Sookie fan, this book wasn't what I had come to expect from Harris. This is a rehash of previous plots that failed to deliver. I kept expecting it to get better and it just never took off.

    "Love the whole series"

    I was hooked up by the first book which I bought through a promotion, then it cost me additional 7 credits to buy the rest in a month. I have to upgrade my membership so that I could have enough credits for this series. Good strategy, Audible marketing team!

    This series is much better than the popular Twilight Sega. I couldn't finish that series since the main character in Twilight has no personality, but simply a self-centered, plain & boring girl with everybody else getting busy around her for no reason - how stupid. On the contract, Sukie in this series is a well developed character with amazing personality. She's not just beautiful, but determined, strong minded, and takes care of her friends along the way without thinking of any return. The stories are all very engaging, totally worth the money I cost for membership upgrading.

    I would highly recommend this serious.

    "Plotting an end?"

    I enjoyed the other books in the series much more than this particular book. "A trip down memory lane" might work in a sitcom episode, but the recap makes this book feel like leftovers.

    One of the charming/tragic aspects of Sookie was her inability to keep her life from trending toward hopeless complexity. Most of this book is devoted to closing dangling plot threads left over from the other seven books. It seems unusual for Sookie to wane her troubles down to just three or four. And that makes me worry that the author has tired of writing the Southern Vampire mysteries.

    Brilliant? Good, but not brilliant. New ground? a little. Worth reading after others in series, yes. Worth reading as an introduction to the series - absolutely not.

    Hopefully that time spent on plot thinning means the next book will have the same genius and humor that the other books in this series share.

    Many thanks to Charlaine Harris for days of enjoyment spent listening to the Southern Vampire mysteries.

    "I love it all."
    Would you listen to From Dead to Worse again? Why?

    I would possibly listen again years down the line. It's all still so fresh to me, but it's a great story.


    What other book might you compare From Dead to Worse to and why?

    I really can't think of anything to compare it to. This is a new genre of books for me. The closest i'd say would be "Wicked".


    Which character – as performed by Johanna Parker – was your favorite?

    Sookie Stackhouse, the main character. Johanna is just phenomenal in her narration. She really makes these words and story her own. And she sounds southern! Being from Louisiana, I give her two thumbs up.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At this point, i'm listening to all of the novels back-to-back, so where one starts and begins is a bit of a blur to me.

    "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!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this series to a friend. I really love True Blood and these books are great to listen to when waiting for the show to air again. As they are on the last season now the books will be sure to keep me entertained.


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

    She voices the characters really well. Everyone has a distinct voice and it makes the story that much better.
