This review covers books 1 8.These are a lot of silly fun, and than a little addictive They are decently well written despite some continuity issues but pretty much what you d expect from a romance mystery novel Sookie s voice works better in some books than in others, and some plot threads are compelling than others Just when things started to drag a bit, there was a hell of a plot twist, and not one that I d seen coming I ve enjoyed the whole series, so far, though book 4 is definitely my fa [...]
Okay, I should probably start by saying I love vampires I ve loved vampires since I was old enough to know what they were I have dreamed a lot of dreams about vampires, even before David Boreanaz made them sexy as hell The dreams changed a bit after that, of course.I started TIVOing the HBO series TruBlood, and it started out a little on the strange side, kind of gross at times, and I wasn t sure I was going to enjoy it But because it was vampires and quite a few sexy vampires I stuck with it I [...]
Good ol fashioned slutty fun I have been addicted to these silly books from the moment I picked one up There is no real arc to the story line accept when you find out why supernatural beings are so interested in Sookie, but each book is set up as an individual adventure in which our heroin is constantly getting the shit kicked out of her Sookie just dusts herself off and moves on to the next adventure I loved the southern perspective and the way she really captured the vernacular to a T Growing [...]
I ll start out by saying that the three stars are for the writing, not the entertainment value And I ll be the first one to admit that I ve given some atrociously written books all sorts of stars, but I just didn t in this case These books were lots of fun, though I don t really have enough to say to review them all individually, so I chose this extremely convenient box set option which covers books one through seven First, let s talk about Sookie I like old Sook she says things that make me lau [...]
As far as silly vampire soap operas, the Sookie Stackhouse books are fun and entertaining They are totally girl centric, and by that I mean that each love interest for Sookie fulfills some stereotypical ideal fantasy man for all kinds of women The sensible good looking romantic Bill , the bad good looking boy Eric , the strong good looking masculine type Alcide , and the uber masculine good looking protective guy Quinn And they re all good looking, if I didn t mention that Sookie herself apparen [...]
Though I m not exactly proud of the fact, I will admit that I recently finished reading this 10 book series in about 8 weeks For other TrueBlood fans who may be considering diving into the books, there is enough of a departure to keep the story interesting The first few books are fun to compare against the TV series perhaps that s why they were easily my favorites While certainly far from great literature, the series was entertaining and helped keep my mind off some stressful things going on in [...]
The first 7 Sookie books vampires, werewolves and fairies oh my you can t ask for
These are the books that the popular TV series True Blood is based on Having already seen the show I found the books hard to get into at first I already knew the plot for the first two books and found it difficult to make my own images of the characters without automatically seeing the actors from the show Once I got over that I really enjoyed these books The stories follow the same basic guideline as the show but with some major differences After reading the books you can see that the writers f [...]
These books are addictive and just so much fun I was able to polish off each book in about 1 2 days, so the last couple weeks have been filled with vampirey goodness The series reminds me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in its overly dramatic combination of romance, humor and bloody carnage I m sure the new TV show True Blood is going to feel similar but I haven t seen any episodes yet The dialog can be a bit, eh, lackluster and scenarios become increasingly outrageous but that makes it all that muc [...]
I fell in love with the show True Blood, during season one, but ended up canceling HBO, to tighten the financial belt When I heard it was based on a book series, I simply had to read them The books well not very good They are written like a 14 year old fat girl, who has never actually talked to a real boy, would write fan fiction she forgets from book to book what she wrote in previous books, and when she refers to history of the story she gets it wrong and she neglected fact checking and while [...]
I devour these books as they come out every April and then sadly have to wait another year for the next These books are much better than the show
I bought this boxed set knowing nothing about HBO s True Blood Since then, I ve become pretty much addicted to the show, but these fun, fast, quirky mystery romance books have brought me hours of entertainment as well.This series is set in a world where vampires have recently come out of the coffin, meaning, their existence has been revealed to the world They are fighting for legal rights, to be accepted into society, etc The books follow Sookie Stackhouse, a barmaid in Bon Temps, Louisiana, who [...]
You know why this series is great Because its lazy, no effort reading Everything is just so Even the secrets are so plain in your face that it makes you wonder am i a moron for being soo hooked on these books But you aren t Not by any means If you want a simple escape into a fantasy world where you have everything pretty much thought out for you, this is the collection to read For example Bubba We all know who Bubba is don t we But the secrecy of bot saying his name is so dare i say it suspensef [...]
1 Dead Until Dark included a brilliant description of someone we all know, Denise wasn t truly pretty, but she was so flashy and confident that it took a while to figure that out It was written a bit too simply to hold my attention The sex scenes were Cinemax, not imaginative And the character Sookie has an interesting talent but is otherwise incredibly dull I continue the series because my friend said it got better 2 Living Dead in Dallas It was a little better Still the supernatural and the s [...]
I love this series A big fan of all things Fantasy Fiction, in particular smokin hot vamps, I was not disappointed with the Sookie Stackhouse novels And might I add, a big fan of the True Blood TV show Edgier than other vampire supernatural stories I have enjoyed I loved the setting and the characters, who all bar none stood out in their own right I personally am an Eric fan, sorry Bill Still have the last few books to read on my bookshelf, and looking forward to having some downtime, to pick th [...]
I loved the ongoing story in this series, although I could have done without all the sex It kept me hooked throughout so that I was just obsessed with getting the next book Of course, it is all fantasy and fiction, but thoroughly enjoyable to pretend some things exist
Guilty pleasure reading, for sure The character of Sookie is much sassier and funnier than on the HBO series TrueBlood I like the Southern Vampire type bookseasy, quick, fun reads, especially during the school year when I m bogged down in Dickens or Sophocles
I really liked Charlaine Harris writing style She kept me guessing, it was unpredictable and I like being kept in suspense Her characters are well developed and interesting She s very creative in how she comes up with each creatures abilities, especially as they relate to Sookie.
These books are some of my favorite guilty pleasures They re simply fun A good break between deeper engrossing reads.
Took me three months to get through reading at a slow pace I have the next four or 5 books purchased separately, so I will continue on I m not generally a long series fan, so it s a credit to these books that they do stay interesting I ve got to admit, the constant fighting is starting to wear thin, though, and I do miss the earlier simpler stories, so it will be interesting to see if my opinion changes on these last few books Sookie is a really good character and I like it better when she s in [...]
I rated this series with 3 stars, because some of you may reasonably get into the story As well, the writing style is great IMO the story got a bit redundant the main character always looking for Bill, having to bully her way around many other characters to find him And then it turns out later that things in the main relationship between the main characters don t turn out as planned anyway And then fairies are introduced in a vampire werewolf story I wont give any away than that I did have a fu [...]
Loved all the books, the first one seems badly written but once I got into the second, I was hooked Don t make the same mistake I did and attempt to watch the Tv show, all your bill and Eric fantasies will be ruined for good.
I didn t get the set, but I have read all these books.
adventure, supernatural and thrilling following sookie through good and bad definately one set of books you cant help but want to keep reading till theres none left
As always, the books are better than the tv series It s hilarious and poor Sookie is always getting herself into trouble.
While these are not classic literature, they are fun, creative reads along the lines of Janet Evonavich Once you start the series, you can t stop.
Loved the imagination of the author.
These mysteries that feature blonde heroine Sookie Stackhouse are fun, quick and frothy reads that combine several genres scifi, fantasy, paperback romance rather well I m not usually one for vampire reads but I think Harris does a good job with several things 1 The vampires are dangerous After her initial crush on one, Sookie is rather sensible about her involvement with the whole supernatural scene She tries to extricate herself from it several times, but obviously, it s like a virus Once its [...]
So, earlier this year when I got my very first job EVER, have a guess what I bought with my very first wages The entire 1st season of Trueblood on DVD.Being a regrettably Twilight fanatic, I was like YES VAMPIRES, WOOO and bought it blindly.I watched the first episode and all I could think with my inncocent 14 year old mind was What the HELL is that man doing to that Woman and Ew But having spent 40 of my own money for once, I stuck with it for the entire episode, and a little disgruntled, reluc [...]
