Quick read for me. Loved it though despite having seen the tv show before reading it. ( )

Delightful beyond delightful. Utterly dissimilar from the HBO series, for which I am grateful. I barreled through the first eight books in four days, because Charlaine Harris' characterizations and plot pacing are so masterful. I absolutely plan on re-reading, because despite this being, on the surface, brain candy, it's quite obvious that there are other levels available to think on.

I just discovered these. The books are every bit as good or better than the TV show. ( )

I'm not the biggest fan of mystery romances, but I can definitely see why this book series as a big following and has been turned into a TV series. Good for other readers, not for me. ( )

What bunch of fluff. Maybe that is what some people want. This series gets better as it goes, but this first book reads like a kindergarten pop up book. You can tell it tell it was written by a bored housewife who just wanted to cash in on the Vampire fad. It is very obvious that Harris had no clue how to write a book.....but she gets better and learns her craft as the series progresses. I will give her that. If you want real vampires.....Read a Brian Lumley book. Either way it's better than Twilight.....this is fluff.....those are trash. ( )
