    Story
    "Not more than one-liners for each Character"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I cannot imagine, big fans will want more and light fans will not care.


    What was most disappointing about Charlaine Harris’s story?

    It was pretty much one-line "endings" to each characters story. I was expecting more of an epilogue.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Johanna Parker?

    Oh yes.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    It sounded as though the narrator was even bored of the one-liners.

    "Overpriced for what you are getting"

    This was not a good audiobook - it was like having an encyclopedia read out loud. Hard to follow or remember the information, though the information was interesting. I also guess I didn't look carefully at the length of the audiobook before I purchased it - I thought it would have 2 hours or so...it was only 47 minutes.

    Story
    "Doesn't work as an audiobook"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is best used as a companion book that you can open up in a physical form and scroll through the characters to find the one you want. It has been a while since I read the books in this series so the names of all but the main characters mean little to me without going back to the books, which I don't really care enough to do.
    Maybe I'm too cynical but I wonder whether the publishers are simply milking the series after it should have been dead and buried (pardon the pun) a while ago - I found the last 2 books very disappointing; they lacked the plot complexity and multiple threads of the earlier books.

    Story
    "Not bad but ..."
    Would you try another book from Charlaine Harris and/or Johanna Parker?

    Probably not but that's mainly because I've already listened to most of the Sookie Stackhouse series.


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

    This book was written like an encyclopedia (ie each character being a topic) rather than a set of short stories. It was interesting to hear was happened next to the characters - the brief approach was suitable for some (ie Jane Boathouse) but didn't necessarily do justice to others (ie Eric).


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Johanna Parker is by far my preferred narrator for the Sookie Stackhouse stories - it just doesn't sound quiet right listening to some of the other narrators given that Johanna's narrated all of the novels.

    Story
    "Wish I had bought the book instead"
    What was most disappointing about Charlaine Harris’s story?

    It wasn't the story at all. This book is only one or two lines devoted to every character from the entire series that didn't have an ending in the final book. It is needed to complete the series but for $6 just the paperback book would have been better.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from After Dead?

    There weren't any scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    I think it would be better read than listened to as a book. I had to listen to it a couple of times because I missed some of the folks. It was only one or two sentences per character and sometimes I couldn't place the character before we were on the next one.

    It is needed for the series completion but since it is so short and the structure of the book I think it would be better to read it. However, the kindle version costs more than the audible book here.

    "Nice finally"

    If you have read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books, you will enjoy this short story that brings closure to all of your favorite characters. If you have not read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books, this will not make any sense.
