Excellent narrator. ( )
  Kindleifier | Jun 3, 2022 |
Merkilega skemmtileg bók. Átti ekki von á miklu þegar ég prófaði að lesa hana en Charlaine Harris er ágætis penni og sagan er léttleikandi, húmorísk, glæpasaga sem er spennandi á köflum með slatta af rómantík.
Sagan snýst um gengilbeinuna Sookie sem á við þann vanda að etja að vera huglesari og á í megnustu erfiðleikum með að loka af hugsanir og tilfinningar annarra frá vitund sinni. Þessi saga gerist á okkar tímum en einhverra hluta vegna hefur almenningur samþykkt tilveru vampýra sem búa nú á meðal manna og reyna (að minnsta kosti flestar) að drekka gerfiblóð. Vampýran Bill fer að venja komur sínar á barinn þar sem Sookie vinnur og vinskapur tekst með þeim en um líkt leyti hrannast upp lík í nágrenningu af ungum konum sem allar hafa verið bitnar af vampýrum.
Ágætis afþreying en heimsmyndin sem lesendum er boðið upp á er dálítið öðruvísi en við eigum að venjast og fullnægjandi skýringar fást ekki í sögunni á orsökum og áhrifum þeirra. Það er hins vegar góður möguleiki á að þær skýringar birtist í seinni bókum Harris. ( )

I have been wanting to read about Sookie Stackhouse for a while and she did not disappoint. Excellent, humorous characters. Interesting plot. More, uh, realistic attitude to what a vampire is than most. ( )
  jennybeast | Apr 14, 2022 |
Once again I've proven to myself that when given the choice between a vampire and a werewolf-type critter, I go for the werewolf-type critter every time. If only more authors/heroines agreed with me.... ( )
