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.

    Story
    "Spunky Sweetheart - excellent narrator!"
    What did you love best about Living Dead in Dallas?

    I really enjoyed the interactions between the vamps. How screwed up they can be in their own political nightmares. It just is not a special human thing. Plus the fact that humans can also be the most evil part of a nightmare. We often look at the monster as the "MONSTER", but in Sookie books, it is often the ones you look to for salvation that are the monsters.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Sookie gets constantly tossed around and beat up. I chuckle every time I listen to the amount of damage she takes and I think to myself, thank God that woman has a positive attitude, where can I get some for myself?


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

    Johanna Parker really does the characters in this series well. The accents are spot on. And her pauses and vocal tones (whisper, shout, snickers, chuckles) are perfectly in tune with this series. She really is good at becoming her characters.


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

    It is tough to put this book on pause. But you do not want to miss or let slip by any good parts! so you have to put it on pause sometimes. This is not a book you want to let slide thru your one ear and out the other.

    "This was a fun ride."
    If you could sum up Living Dead in Dallas in three words, what would they be?

    Anticipation, involved and alluring.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved meeting the characters Godric and Luna.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    Everything. I can't get enough of her performances. They are so much better than the other performers out there.

    Would have rated a 3.5 if I could. Bill still not the favorite boyfriend material. Has love scenes, fight scenes and new monsters.

    Story
    "Pride leads to a fall"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, there is usually so much happening in all of Sookie Stakehouse stories that you just can't help but love the story. This story has so much action and the relationships are so much fun that I look forward to every book Mrs. Harris writes. You never know what will come up next.


    If you’ve listened to books by Charlaine Harris before, how does this one compare?

    This one is good, but there are a few that is better. To me this is just an additional book that introduces some future characters.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    THe narrator is so good that this is one of the series that I only have in audiobook form.


    Was Living Dead in Dallas worth the listening time?

    Yes, because the stories are so interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to see what else Charlaine Harris comes up with.

    My reviews are rather simple but only because I want to convey my impressions of a story. I leave summaries to the publisher. LOVE Audible!

    Story
    "Not Yet "Bitten" by the Bug"

    This is actually a pretty good listen. The narrator is really enjoyable. The story itself is ok but I think I have been over sold in this genre. The whole vampire thing has been done to death. I just want good ol' Dracula back. Johanna Parker is fantastic. I wish I could be more succinct in my review.
    I am going to listen to the next in the series because I have already bought it. This is a take it or leave it book for me.

    Story
    "What were you thinking Sookie?"
    Where does Living Dead in Dallas rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book makes my top ten "Listen to Again" list.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Sam is still there for Sookie. But even more, Sookie is there for her home town, even if they think she is "Crazy Sookie"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Eric helps Sookie get the answers to Lafayette's murder. You can see that her defenses are falling. And Eric just keeps pushing to get Sookie to "yield".


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

    When Sookie understands that Bill is a "hunter" by nature. That he will kill if threatened. When she knows that she can't change this but must accept it.


    Any additional comments?

    In this book, Sookie learns more ugly truths about the humans and supernaturals in her town. However, she still keeps her sweet and innocent nature.

    Story
    "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.

    "Not as good as the first one"

    The sex angle took over too much in this one, and it wasn't nearly as fun as a result. I will try the third one to see if it goes back to being more entertaining. Great narrator.

    If you could sum up Living Dead in Dallas in three words, what would they be?

    Fantastic, enjoyable and all together exciting!


    What other book might you compare Living Dead in Dallas to and why?

    Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniel. Both the heroines are smart, savvy and totally loveable.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    I like her southern drawl. Totally lovable.


    Any additional comments?

    Charlaine harris makes one think that vampires, werewolves etc also love life and that they also have their rights.
