A+++++ For Charlaine Harris

My wife is currently on book 8 and can't wait to take on the rest. She stumbled upon the series accidentally during one of audible's sales and fell in love with the books. She's been listening non-stop since. I feel like even I have listened to the books - she's updating me so often on what is going on in Sookie's life. She is especially impressed with the narrarator, Johanna Parker. The books have been a great investment! If you're a fan of vampire books, this would be a smart purchase!

Great book series

I stumbled on the Charlaine Harris Vampire books by accident and am thoroughly hooked. Johanna Parker does an excellent job as narrator and the stories are interesting and funny. A little more gore than I normally read, but not so much that it distracts from the book. Great job.

Good, but not great

This book was offered at a discounted price to me, so I bought it, not knowing it was part of the True Blood television series. (I don't watch the show... I know nothing about it). I enjoyed the story, and didn't know what was going to happen until the end. I don't really want to read the sexy bits (they're easy enough to skip through.) The reader was good, but sometimes her male voices blended together and I didn't know who was speaking. Bill's voice was a little weird. I enjoyed the story, but I don't know if I'll read (or listen to) more.

Good Listen

This was recommended repeatedly by a friend at work. She is much younger than I am and I thought the story would be too light for my taste. I finally decided to download this and found the story line entertaining, but it is the narrator who really makes the story come to life.

Great book/storyline - not so great reader

I love this series, the books are great!! However, the reader isn't my favorite. Her inflection and character voices are somewhat grating. I downloaded the first two books in the series, I won't be getting the remainder due to the poor job of the reader. Much better to read this series yourself

No surprises if you watch the HBO series

I purchased this listen hoping for bonus insites into the charactures and story line. No such luck. If you have not seen the HBO series than it is a great listen but no new information for the True Blood lover.

Not a big fan

The story line is actually pretty good at first, I'm just not real big on most romance stories since they tend to be unrealistic, so I will not follow the series

We loved it!

Would you listen to Dead Until Dark again? Why?

Of course, my mother listened to it three times! It was fun, and after you listen to a few more you can go back and listen for more detail.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Until Dark?

Her Romance with Bill

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

Yes while we drove across country

Any additional comments?

We got hooked and listened to all of them in a row! They are great for while you are driving, and on a plane time goes by so much faster! Her voices are male voices are funny, but you get used to it!
