    "More crazy characters!"

    This book introduces even more "sups" (supernatural beings) to Sookie's life and she gets more wound up in the drama of the vampire world than ever. It was a little hard to keep up with who's who or rather "who's what??" but a great story overall.

    "Love this book"
    Any additional comments?

    This is probably my favorite Sookie Stackhouse novel. I've always been an Eric fan, so of course I'd like this book. It is a little bit sad at the ending tho. Also, I've noticed that they did not do as good of a job of editing this audiobook. For some reason, a couple times in the reading, the narrator repeats a sentence. It's really weird, and I'm surprised they didnt catch it before releasing it. Hard to miss if you're actually listening to it. But, on the plus side, Johanna Parker is the best narrator I have heard so far. She really makes these audiobooks work. I am not sure I'll even be able to read the paper books now, just because she does such a wonderful job of bringing Sookie to life.

    "Best of the series so far..."

    I don't usually like to listen to or read paranormal books but after reading/listening to everybook in the series by Molly Harper I decided to give this series a try and I'm so glad I did!
    I'm about 2 hours into thhe next book in the series (Deas As A Doornail) and I have to agree with several other reviews that this is my favorite in the series so far. Eric's sweetness in this book can only be the character's true personality and I can't wait to see if that side of his personality comes out again in future books.
    As for my opinion about whether the books in this series are able to be read (or listened to) as a 'stand alone' I think if the first book I read was in the middle of the series I'd be able to enjoy it but I'd be contantly wondering what I'd missed in a previous book.
    Also, the narration for this series (and thank you to whoever I should thank for having the entire series read by the same narrator!) is a true performance and brings the story alive. Not to mention that I'd be clueless about how to pronounce several names in the series if I was reading it on my own!

    "Delicious, more please."

    I just can't get enough of this series. It is hard to find a book that keeps you hanging on the edge of your seat like this one does and Johanna parker is brilliant.

    "Mixed feelings"

    Out of the first four Sookie Stackhouse books I personally think this one is the weakest as far as plot goes. The way it reads though it seems like this book was used more as a vehicle to setup certain ideas & situations that might be expanded upon in the following books. I guess I will find out when I get there. Still, it was good like the rest of the series has been so far. It definitely has not detered me from continuing on with the many thrilling & supernatural escapades of the residents of Bon Temps, LA. I can't wait to see what book 5 has in store. :)

    "Good Series"

    I really enjoyed these books. I listen to this series while I work. They are easy to listen to and entertaining enough to help me through a repetitive job. I would recommend and listened to the whole series.

    "I can't put it down..."

    Great fun! I am thoroughly enjoying this series. The character is a person I'd like to hang out with; she keeps it real and full of life.

    Eric is vunerable and needs Sookie's help. My favorite book in the series! Don't miss it.

    "hooked"

    I have listened to the first 4 books now. I am hooked!
    Lots of fantasy, action, fun, sex. Waiting for payday so I can afford some more. ;-)
    I also thing the narrator is very good. But I have to admit that I listen to the books at "double speed" on my iPhone, as normal speed is way to slow for me.
