In this paranormal romance, naive small-town waitress Sookie Stackhouse falls in love with a vampire, solves a mystery, and discovers that her own supernatural gift of telepathy is not a "disability". This novel is not great literature, but it is surprisingly engaging and effective, and I say this as someone who doesn't particularly care about vampires and has never seen the HBO series. I might even pick up another book in the True Blood series someday. ( )

Okay---the writing is super basic, but the story line and the characters are lovely. ( )

Listened to this as an audiobook. As a young southern woman I wanted to strangle Sookie for the actress's horrible southern accent. Plus she had some very vapid brainless dialog. ( )

A little late to start the series, but came highly recommended! I must say I didn't like it at first, but then I found that I couldn't put it down. Missed my stop on the train two days in a row!!! On to book 2, hoping that it is just as good as this one!! ( )
