I really like it this book, I think it took me just one night to read everything an I really enjoyed. The books has a pretty good narrative and the story knows how to jump between the funny gags and the more dramatic parts. This is the book that started the True Blood phenomen and after reading it, for me is understandable, it manage to have a good balance between all it's elements and the characters are quite interesting.

Sookie is such an incredibly written character! She is smart yet naïve, caring yet vengeful, and extremely devoted to those she loves-be they living or dead! Each Sookie Stackhouse book is quite the adventure that leaves you itching to open the next Sookie Stackhouse book. They are filled with twists and turns, especially where her heart is concerned....... who to love......human or vampire, shifter or vampire, werewolf or vampire...... the choices just keep coming. Love every minute of reading these books!!!! ( )

I followed up the Twilight series with the Sookie Stackhouse series. A good, soft transition into more paranormal romance. Too much hype for Charlaine Harris's books because of the HBO series than deserved. The HBO series is fine; the books are fine, but the plot/mystery of each book is simple. Very quick read -- straightforward plot with friendly characters that are easy to like. If you enjoy paranormal, you will probably enjoy this series, but there truly are more gripping, non-plain vanilla paranormal series out there (both in terms of adult scenes and dynamic realtionships between various beings in the paranormal realm). My 4-star rating is based on my thoughts just after reading, but would probably garner only 3-stars after having read Alexancer Ivy, Jacqueline Frank and Gena Showalter. I stopped reading this series after the 9th book... ( )
