From Dead to Worse: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery #8 | [Charlaine Harris]

From Dead to Worse: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery #8

The supernatural community in Bon Temps, Louisiana, is reeling from two hard blows: the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the manmade horror of the explosion at the vampire summit in the up-north city of Rhodes. Sookie Stackhouse is safe but dazed, and she's yearning for things to get back to normal. But that's just not happening. Too many vampires - some friends, some not - were killed or injured, and her were-tiger boyfriend Quinn is among the missing.

Publisher's Summary

The supernatural community in Bon Temps, Louisiana, is reeling from two hard blows: the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the manmade horror of the explosion at the vampire summit in the up-north city of Rhodes.

Sookie Stackhouse is safe but dazed, and she's yearning for things to get back to normal. But that's just not happening. Too many vampires - some friends, some not - were killed or injured, and her were-tiger boyfriend Quinn is among the missing. It's clear that things are changing, whether the weres and vamps like it or not. And Sookie, Friend to the Pack, blood-bonded to the leader of the local vampire community, is caught up in those changes.

She's about to find herself facing danger and death and, not for the first time, betrayal by someone she loves. And when the fur has finished flying and the cold blood has stopped flowing, Sookie's world will be forever altered.

    "Not Very Satisfying Recording Quality"

    Despite the additional complications to Sookie's life, I still enjoyed the humour sprinkled all over. I think that Charlaine Harris was "spring cleaning" characters and getting rid of unattached or unnecessary strands in the story. Johanna Parker's reading was superb as usual and very entertaining.

    I have listened to the other audiobooks in the series prior to this one except "Altogether Dead" (I think it's geographically unavailable in my region), and have been happy with the quality of the audio recording. Unfortunately, I am unable to say the same of this one. There are some skipping in the audio (in both parts of the audiobook). However, I didn't find it annoying enough to stop listening.

    Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

    Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.

    I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

    Happy Reading

    "I love the Sookie Stackhouse Series!"

    I love everything Charlaine Harris does and this is no exception! What a great listen! Thoroughly enjoyable and of course snaps to the narrator who, as always, does a fantastic job!

    "Least favourite"

    Not because it's boring - oh no - but because I could not come to terms with Sookie's love-related decisions. Actually this one particular that she takes near the end of the book. It bothered me so much that I even had to stop listening as I felt a great dislike toward Sookie for a few days. Oh, well, she's not a real person, eh? Besides, I have a feeling the author simply wanted to make room for ... well, you'll see.

    Another thing is the plot related to the new relative of hers she meets. Sorry, this was plain boring for me but, as I see it, this is an introduction to what happens in the next book.

    Finally, I confirm - the audio quality is poor. Very poor. Maybe in other formats it's better.

    "From dead to Worse"

    This is book 8 of the Sookie Stackhouse series. Family secrets are the theme of this novel. Trouble is brewing among the vampires and werewolves, meaning that Sookie will almost certainly be dragged in too. Another great addition to a great series.

    Any additional comments?

    Everything I read I remember, everything I hear I remember...

    So as you can imagine I will consume a book and move on never to return, this series of books however are the only ones I have gone back through multiple times. This is because the characters are so intricately designed they become real, the story lines while based in fantasy from the off never fail to surprise and thoroughly delight. I have never had such an all round almost tactile experience from something that I've read to make me come back to them so often and with that first time read anticipation it's nuts because I remember every word already.

    They are utterly hilarious, full of blood-pumping action and downright hot in equal measure with so many more facets that will have you also coming back time and again.
    The books do not copy the T.V. Show plot line they are completely different the anchors for both being the familiarity of the main characters but both being superb in their own ways.

    A definite BUY IT NOW! you certainly will not regret it.

    "Very entertaining"

    This book is very entertaining and I could not stop until I had read the whole book. I loved the mix of characters and the plot of the book. You can listen to the book whilst basking in the sun in the park or whilst taking a walk. Absolutely beautiful.

    "A ripping yarn..."

    I have read the entire series of Charlaine Harris's Bon Temps serial, (well, devoured would be more accurate) therefore, it was nice to re-visit the story at the narrator's pace. Johanna Parker brings the story to life, lifting the animated southern characters off the page and into your home, it's a joy to listen to.
