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.

Listen to more titles in the Sookie Stackhouse series.

    "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 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.

    Story
    "a great story, but the narrator can be distracting"

    I own hard copies of these books, I love them enough to purchase them twice... my only issue is the way the narrator pronounces certain things- LA French (Cajun) names in particular.

    I like all types of genres. Since getting a disability I've had to move on to audio books. I was hesitant at first but loving the audio book

    Story
    "Pink spandex...that's one for the books!"
    What did you love best about Living Dead in Dallas?

    My favorite part was actually at the end when Sookie and Eric are preparing to go to the orgy and Eric reveals his costume which is a pink t shirt and pink spandex...I actually laughed out loud.


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

    Other than that pink spandex moment....I did like the ending wheras Bill has a human moment discovering his heritage line with the Bellefleur family. I did like this story better than book one. I have already seen the HBO series and the books are far better. I do like the chemistry between Sookie and Eric and hope that it will last for many books in the series


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite was as I said earlier when Eric enters Sookie's house and reveals his outfit. I also liked the character Luna in this book, she's tough , but comical at the same. I'm wondering if the other werewolf in the car with Debbie was Alcide?


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I could not stop laughing when the author was describing Eric's outfit for the orgy scene.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was better than the first and better than the HBO series. I liked that there was little focus on the maenad and I wished there could have been more focus on the chemistry between sookie and Eric and that more of the nature of this book could have found itself in the HBO series. I was shocked that Tara has such a small role in the series so far and that Lafayette is dead. It was a better read, but I do wish that the author would be more erotic in her writing of the steamy scenes, and that Sookie could be less hot tempered. She is more likeable in the HBO series than so far in the books...however I've only read the first two.
