didn t like this Chick lit meets bad PNR as written by a 17 year old clearly is not me.The story Uninteresting at best Apart from that Boring to death There is only so much I can read about Sookie s daily life taking a shower, shaving her legs, plucking her eyebrows, putting on body lotion and deodorant Seriously Arrrgggghhhhhh Someone please shoot me Oh but wait, we also get to find out about fascinating stuff like her job I d never heard of these books until a few months ago, and as usual, once one person recommends them, everyone seems to be talking about them, you see them everywhere,

True Blood was better than this in every sense it completely transcended it Well, at least, before the fourth season hit and the writing went down the toilet But that s a separate issue altogether The show took Charlaine Harris s book and made the story better it made it sexy and scary But, let s not forget that without this there would have been no show whatsoever So fans of the television show do owe a lot to Charlaine Harris Her writing for me though can be summed The television show True Blood was better than this in every sense it completely transcended it Well, at least, before the fourth

that without this there would have been no show whatsoever So fans of the television show do owe a lot to Charlaine Harris Her writing for me though can be summed up in one word tepid She has the characters and some strong ideas, but she just can t insert life into her prose Where was the shock factor Where were the cheap thrills and the melodrama Normally I d criticise a book for having these, but this one so desperately needed them I didn t find this story remotely exciting it had no sense of drive, and, again, it lacked the sex appeal of the television show Perhaps, I may have enjoyed this a littlei The first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series I confess I picked this up at the bookstore for a few reasons 1 The cover was sparkly and I liked the art 2 Vampires Having spent

thought Well that s what you getThe main character is called WHAT Sookie Stackhouse And she is blond and a bar waitress and likes to flaunt her tight clothes and tans out in her lawn in a bikini Hu But I never almost never stop reading a book once I start so I bravely forged ahead And suddenly I stopped laughing and the pages started turning and I found myself thinking about the book when I wasn t reading it and wondering how fast I could get the next book.So glad that there were sparkles on t I started reading this series because I was currently watching True Blood and had developed a slight obsession with Eric Since then, the books have become an absolute guilty pleasure of mine They are not the best written and occasionally we get a little too much of what we don t care for i.e fairies and shifters but amid the hot vamp sex and murder mysteries who really notices those anyway Most characters have both annoying and redeeming qualities, but this is good I never did like th I started reading this serie
