Publisher's Summary

Charlaine Harris' popular Southern Vampire mysteries have been described by Publishers Weekly as "humorous Southern-fried fantasy" with a little bit of romance.

In the follow up to Dead Until Dark, telepathic friend of the undead (and vampire bar cocktail waitress) Sookie Stackhouse puts her newfound powers to the test. After an unfortunate incident, Sookie finds herself beholden to a group of Louisiana vampires. So she agrees to travel to Dallas with her undead boyfriend Bill and track down a missing vamp, but only if the vampires promise to let local humans go unharmed. That seems easier said than done when an upstart religious cult threatens to destroy all things vampire - including Sookie, who is quickly scheduled for sacrifice.

    "Great!!"

    This 2nd book in the Sookie Stackhouse series was really suspenseful and I think I may have liked it even better than the first because it was so fast paced. I like the continuation of Sookie and Bill's love story though find the development of Eric somewhat intriguing and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series to see where their relationship goes.

    Story
    "Road Trip to Texas."

    I have read this entire series before, but I had not listened to them so here I am now listening to them. I like the first 7 books in the series best. This one is sad because Lafayette gets killed and I just love his character in the TV series, too bad. Anyway this is the book where my love for Eric started and it only gets stronger with the series. I am defiantly team Eric not Bill. Narrator does a great job very vivid in her telling.

    "I am a huge Sookie fan!"
    Would you listen to Living Dead in Dallas again? Why?

    maybe....it moves really slow in some places, I still loved it, but the first book was better..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Living Dead in Dallas?

    I laughed a LOT when they went to the swingers party....TOTALLY not Sookies scene..but she is so brave even when she is really being tormented...you have to respect that!!


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

    I really do think Sookie is a great character...and I love that she was brought to life for us!! And Eric is a close 2nd... Johanna Parker is GREAT!!!!!!!


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

    I wouldnt say moved me, but I did enjoy and thought it was really sweet how Eric and Bill take care of Sookie after she is kidnapped...and when Godfrey aka Goderick met the sun...


    Any additional comments?

    I started book 3 today and am already 3 hours in....so just remember when you are at a slow part in book 2, book 3 sucks you in quick and is awesome to look forward too!!!!!

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    "Book 2 is as good as the first!"

    Another thoroughly enjoyable, fast and easy fiction about vampires, shapeshifters, discrimination, violence, love and lust.

    There is a little more mystery/suspense than in the first book in this series, and a bit less romance. But the sex scenes are a bit more graphic (not detailed graphic, kinda glossed over, yet more graphic than the first book's).

    If you want to spend a lot of time thinking, or trying to figure out a mystery, this isn't the book for that, but if you want light and enjoyable fiction, give it a whirl. I am already starting the next book in the series.

    The narration is excellent.

    "Very satisfying 'read'!"

    I started reading the Sookie Stackhouse series when I watched HBO's Trueblood. The books are, of course, different than the TV show, and I find them much more satisfying. This is book 2 in the series, and I thoroughly enjoy the way Charlaine Harris writes. She has a great ear for dialogue. The narrator, Joanna Parker, does a very fine job in reading the book, and keeping the different characters' voices separate. This book explores how Sookie gets asked by the local head of the vampires, Eric, to go to Dallas and help them (by using her "disability" or gift) with the disappearance of one of their 'nest mates'. Along the way she meets a new, terrifying supernatural creature. Sookie also finds her friend and Merlotte's cook in Andy Bellfleur's car, dead, and is determined to help find the killer. All in all, an adventure-packed read, with wonderful erotic touches thrown in. Very satisfying listen!

    "Differences"

    As I listened to this audio book, Living Dead in Dallas, I couldn't help but compare it to the television adaptation, True Blood. I have to say that in this instance, the series is much better than the book, which I found odd considering that in my opinion, 9 out of 10 times the book is much better. It's a great book, but Alan Ball the director of True Blood has done an outstanding job of making the series much less boring than the books and giving it the flair and drama that the books lack. I give the book a thumbs up, but I give the series 2 thumbs up.

    "Plot jumps around weirdly"

    The plot was divided sort of strangely so the flow of the book was a little stilted. I am still interested to see what happens though and the performance was really great.
