    I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!

    "Love Sookie, this was good, left me wanting more!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of From Dead to Worse to be better than the print version?

    I feel it is always is, audio is almost always the way to go!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked all of it, it was a great story, good build up for the next book...I have a lot of questions now...and cant wait for the answers!


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

    As always she brings great depth and emotion to the characters...she is an excellent Sookie!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Vampires, witches, and weres oh my!


    Any additional comments?

    I really have enjoyed this series, and will be reading the next one soon, even though I am a fan of TRUE BLOOD and the books differ in many ways....I love these stories also and do not feel it detracts from the show at all....I highly recommend this series!

    "Best Yet"

    Kind of a cult following, Sookie Stackhouse is now starring in her own HBO series. The books, however, must be better than the series! This one is definitely one of the better in the series. You can see the author really working on developing characters and their whole fantasy world. Worth the read!

    "Disappointing"

    As a Sookie fan, this book wasn't what I had come to expect from Harris. This is a rehash of previous plots that failed to deliver. I kept expecting it to get better and it just never took off.

    "Love the whole series"

    I was hooked up by the first book which I bought through a promotion, then it cost me additional 7 credits to buy the rest in a month. I have to upgrade my membership so that I could have enough credits for this series. Good strategy, Audible marketing team!

    This series is much better than the popular Twilight Sega. I couldn't finish that series since the main character in Twilight has no personality, but simply a self-centered, plain & boring girl with everybody else getting busy around her for no reason - how stupid. On the contract, Sukie in this series is a well developed character with amazing personality. She's not just beautiful, but determined, strong minded, and takes care of her friends along the way without thinking of any return. The stories are all very engaging, totally worth the money I cost for membership upgrading.

    I would highly recommend this serious.

    "Plotting an end?"

    I enjoyed the other books in the series much more than this particular book. "A trip down memory lane" might work in a sitcom episode, but the recap makes this book feel like leftovers.

    One of the charming/tragic aspects of Sookie was her inability to keep her life from trending toward hopeless complexity. Most of this book is devoted to closing dangling plot threads left over from the other seven books. It seems unusual for Sookie to wane her troubles down to just three or four. And that makes me worry that the author has tired of writing the Southern Vampire mysteries.

    Brilliant? Good, but not brilliant. New ground? a little. Worth reading after others in series, yes. Worth reading as an introduction to the series - absolutely not.

    Hopefully that time spent on plot thinning means the next book will have the same genius and humor that the other books in this series share.

    Many thanks to Charlaine Harris for days of enjoyment spent listening to the Southern Vampire mysteries.

    Love the Dead series. If you haven't read any yet, start with the first and keep going!

    "Love this series!"

    This was another entertaining installment in the world of Sookie. This series makes me want to keep coming back for more. I am getting ready to start book 9 out of 13. I will be a bit sad when the series is over. This audiobook was narrated by Johanna Parker. She does an excellent job.

    "A lot going on in this one."

    Things come to an end but new things show up, this makes for a lovely continuation in the story I look forward to hearing.
