With Sookie as her mouthpiece, Charlaine Harris opened up the floor for the discussion of genre fiction in this latest installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series, because it turns out our sweet little friend Sookie proudly claims a self-education through none other than two of the least respected forms of the genre novel: The snob in me wants to snort in disdain and feel offended for liking Sookie.
Plus, I also claim an affinity for horribly embarrassing genre fiction. But for a fast, light read I would not hesitate in recommending this series to just about anyone who digs vamps and weres.
The first one was okay. The second was better, but it was in the third one that I started to feel a personal connection to the characters.

Alena Cooper Love your commentary; my thoughts mirror yours almost exactly! Apr 17, I think the best thing about Sookie being self educated is that she gathers information from everywhere. She quotes The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and enjoys genre fiction.
Was she worth it? Too late for your vampire tears now. View all 33 comments. Dec 02, Fabian rated it liked it. Still terrific enough to make me keep reading 'em. She endures so much and how much time has elapsed? Actually two seasons That she endures so much and the fact that the plot breaks at times, goes many places except where you think it will go main characters can die within two pages, sometimes two paragraphs View 1 comment.
May 31, Jilly rated it liked it Shelves: Sookie has never been the brightest bulb in the pack, but she hits an all-time low in the intelligence department in this book. Her most grievous offence, in my eyes, is that she continues to pine for boring, bland Bill throughout this book.
Bill is not only boring, but he's a cheating asshole. Why Bill is an asshole list: He is boring 2. He has no sense of humor 3. He is filthy rich and yet lets his "love" scrape and scratch to live in poverty 4.
Even if he wasn't rich, he never brings her flowe Sookie has never been the brightest bulb in the pack, but she hits an all-time low in the intelligence department in this book. Even if he wasn't rich, he never brings her flowers or does anything thoughtful for her 5. He lies to her about where he is going 7. He is cheating on her 8. He viciously bites her 9. He rapes her Even after attacking and raping her, he has the nerve to think they should still be together So, I hate Bill.
What does Sookie do? A Say "Good riddance to bad rubbish" and move on with her life while laughing manically B Let Erik and the vampires handle it because it's not her problem anymore C Turn her own life upside down to run out to save him while crying like a little bitch about how much she misses him Personally, I would pick A. But, Sookie isn't me, or even a normal human being, because she picks C and runs off on a rescue mission for a guy who was literally planning on not even telling her that he was dumping her for another woman.
This pissed me off to no end! But, at least we get Alcide, the werewolf. Alcide is a stand-up guy, and guess what? He can be out during the daytime! A big plus in a relationship. He and Sookie are partnered up to infiltrate a vampire club to see if they can get any info on Bill the Dickhead. And, of course, they do - and Sookie gets hurt - again And, there's Eric, who is completely awesome and wants Sookie as well.
For an uneducated, poor, white trash barmaid, this girl is somehow irresistible to every male south of the Mason Dixon Line. Why won't Sookie choose Eric? He actually possesses a personality and sense of humor. Plus, look: I just don't get it. View all 16 comments. Original Rating: The second half was pretty great. Bill leaves in the beginning. Sookie does a bunch of boring stuff around Bon Temps. Sookie meets Alcide. Alcide is so boring in the books. Russell Edgington is in this book.
Russell Edgington is so boring in the books. Eric Northman. Overall, this series in retrospect is kind of sucky and doesn' Original Rating: Overall, this series in retrospect is kind of sucky and doesn't have the bite it used to for me at least. I probably won't read this one again. I fear my love for this series has finally met the true death. I might re-read book 4 though, just because it's Eric's main book.
The writing is so cheesy and not very good, and the bulk of the story is mainly filler. It just doesn't do it for me anymore. But I still give this one 3 Eric Northman stars. Only because the action in the last half was still pretty good. I'll always love the TV show, True Blood until the craptastic last season.
The show really brought the characters alive and is so much better than the books, in my view. For example, Talbot and Lorena are in this book Talbot is still Russell's lover and Lorena is still Bill's maker and one-time lover , but they were reinvented in the best way for the show.
I loved True Blood Lorena and Talbot. Here, you could almost miss them if you blinked. View all 30 comments. Reto 15 PopSugar Un libro con una criatura extinta o imaginaria Esta serie es un vicio. Jan 28, Choko rated it liked it Shelves: Here is a good one that reflects my feelings though View all 13 comments. Going off challenge here for a little bitey reading with my girl, Kristin Things Sookie sucks at: I liked the addition of Alcide and while no one can out gun Joe M.
I enjoyed the malicious addition of the shifters and werewolves to the overall story. The writing, of course, was still a snore and a half…. Especially at the beginning of the book. What the ever-loving hell was the point of all the random shit she was doing around Bon Temps?! And scrabble…. I am spoiler tagging this for your own good, guys!
And if you touch the person you raped, in any way, ever again without consent I WILL hunt you down like the mangy dog you are and ensure you do not have limbs with which to do so again! Such bullshit! Annoying, boring, charmless, dumb. Since I was already on a roll of unpleasant books, I finally forced myself to read my second her third novel the magazine SFX had made me import two with their misleading review. After a typical cold, boring interlude showing how irresistable he is he wears flanel and has hair , vampire Bill disappears at the start of the book and readers are supposed to be stupid enough to fear for his life.
Even if Sookie's feelings hadn't been so badly written, I still Annoying, boring, charmless, dumb. Even if Sookie's feelings hadn't been so badly written, I still wouldn't have cared. Bill, like the other vampires, embodies everything I dislike, but supposedly titillates the majority of readers, since vampire novels are now a genre of their own.
There is the huge difference between the heroine and her super man that are meant to make it sexier, resulting in off-putting sex as the garnish on a deeply conventional reactionary relationship. This time dear Sookie once again gets lusted over and groped by a number of men that are supposed to be erotic due to being supernatural. She is still the most beautiful woman, all natural, as she confesses, but the rubbing up to werewolves et al is only pretend sizzle, because she never has sex with anybody but her husband, whom she supposedly loves although mostly is just angry at or afraid of which supposedly is meant to be erotic - who btw isn't her husband so she misses cooking him breakfast and she cannot accept his money because they are not legally married.
It's a constant praise of the simplest of minds, of the housewife that obeys all the traditional rules for women and gets rewarded by being the object of lust of "wild" mostly just in their hair styles men. I had to stop reading now after she proudly Mary Sued that she got all her education from "genre reading" although she likes to quote difficult words from her word-a-day calendar too and toddled off for that wonderful luxury females indulge in, a beauty make-over.
After various killings and threats of torture, lil Sookie seriously thinks the following: The heroines and possibly the writers night not even be aware of it, but OTOH I noticed it's no longer considered negative and egocentric but positive and strong to state how great oneself is.
And never mind the obligatory asides meant to indicate self-doubt: Raybourne and Harris are percent sure of their superiority, any lack of knowledge being part of that parcel of perfection. But towards the end of the book, the reading was easier. That was partly because Sookie was badly beaten up yay , partly because all the previous action or violence tended to be covered by one sentence, the rest was her moving between bars and flats and petrol stations and doing her nails.
To top off the tedium, it ended in a bit of a cliff-hanger, with Eric yes, he is a Viking still in better graces than bf Bill, although the next novel might uncover misconceptions.

There are parts that I find very funny, such as Sookie using her "word of the day" calendar to improve her vocabulary and the part where the Viking vampire Eric mentions that he took English as a second language in a community college course in the 70's.
That sort of stuff is pretty humorous. The parts that annoy me are the writer's fashion sense. It kills me when I read her description of Yes, I'm still reading this series. It kills me when I read her description of Sookie being all dressed up in bright red satin, with matching red fingernails and toenails, with insert barf noises here long sleeves you slide on separately.
You know the author thinks that Sookie is incredibly stylish and beautiful, yet I keep having bad 80's fashion flashbacks. Also annoying are ALL the vampires. Seriously, they have no redeeming factors to me. I much preferred the werewolf character, Alcide, and I hope they keep up his relationship with Sookie in successive books. I am so over the vampire Bill. I couldn't figure out the attraction of him in the first place and in this book he cheats on Sookie.
He is so dead to me. View all 6 comments. Not as fast or fun a read as the previous two books in the series. Although I'm not sure its really the book's fault. As anyone who reads multiple books at the same time can attest to, you often become more engrossed in one book and forget the other books you're reading.
I also tend to read based on my mood and I'm not in a light and fun fantasy mood right now. Club Dead probably isn't any less fun a read then the first two books but my mood has changed.
I've spent the last two weeks battling mig Not as fast or fun a read as the previous two books in the series. So I've been reading a very dark and twisted book series. I'm going to take a mini break from this series just until my mood lightens. I still plan to finish this series by the end of the year.
I didn't like Bill before because he was boring now I hate him. And I don't wanna hear any excuses just NO! View all 8 comments.
Club Dead for me is where the Sookie Stackhouse series really starts getting its feet under it. Things are definitely not well between Sookie and her boyfriend vampire Bill, and as Sookie heads to Mississippi to track him down and rescue him from lethal peril, she is torn between the attentions of the werewolf Alcide--and way more attention than she'd like from the vampire Eric, who is growing more and more interested in her with every book.
Unfortunately for Sookie's peace of mind, the interest Club Dead for me is where the Sookie Stackhouse series really starts getting its feet under it. Unfortunately for Sookie's peace of mind, the interest is becoming mutual.
The love interest in Book 1 need not be the love interest in Book 3 or Book 4. And love interests may never progress past the stage of "potential". There have been times in the Sookie series where I've been weary of every single supernatural male in her vicinity being interested in her, but the re-read I'm doing is shifting my opinion on that, I'm pleased to note.
I liked seeing a bit more of Tara Thornton, who I'd completely forgotten about from before--and who is an interesting contrast to her TV counterpart. Look also for some great Eric participation in this plot towards the end, as well as excellent appearances by "Bubba". My only real beef about this book is that the reason why Bill is abducted in the first place feels kind of thin. But the Eric mileage here is nifty enough that I'm willing to overlook that!
Three and a half stars. I like Alcide but dude needed to get his head on straight about his ex damn women had him all tied up in knots. I love Bubba! Can you imagine Elvis as a vampire! Ha I am just going to say it.. I like Sookie with Erik well for right now I do,: So 5 stars! I just want to see Sookie torture Bill a little more.. View all 10 comments. Mar 08, Wanda rated it really liked it Shelves: Half of me pathetically wanted to let him know I'd kept the faith; half of me wanted to get in the toolshed and sharpen me some stakes.
Bill said, "She is mine. They would. I raised both of them, making an unmistakable one-fingered gesture. Eric laughed, and Bill said "Sookie! Her appearance is important to her, but beneath that obvious outer layer, there is a strong, tough woman lurking, one who can handle a shotgun or a baseball bat.
Sookie is generally content with her lot in life, which is small town life, and this may annoy more ambitious readers. I have some sympathy for her, having grown up in a small community. This may also be a side effect of small town life—compatible partners are of limited number and societal pressure to pair up is strong. No one makes riches waiting tables, but one does what one must in a small town environment. Every shift that Sookie misses makes it harder to meet her financial obligations, a realistic aspect of the novel that I can appreciate as a single, working woman.
Can Eric take advantage of this situation? On to the next book to see what develops! View 2 comments. Apr 03, Courtney rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Fans of: Giving him the time and space he needs to work, Sookie Stackhouse doesn't realize her boyfriend is missing until Eric Northmen and his two most trusted co-workers, Pam and Chow, pay her a visit.
They also clue her in on some other interesting information: Bill hinted to Eric abo "They say there's no harm in daydreaming, but there is. Bill hinted to Eric about leaving and Bill and Lorena have a romantic history together they're blood bonded, which is a rare and ill advised thing to do between vamps.
Having an idea of where to find him, Eric sends Sookie to Jackson, Mississippi with a werewolf who owes him a favor, Alcide Herveaux. There, she'll stay in his apartment and visit Club Dead club Josephine's to scope out the club goers using her telepathic abilities. Luckily for her, Sookie has Alcide, Eric, and Bubba vampire Elvis Presley watching her back, because she gets into all sorts of trouble on this trip.
Between being physically assaulted by a werewolf in the club, finding said werewolf mysteriously dead in Alcide's closet, and being staked by Steve Newlin in the process of saving the king of Mississippi's second in command, Betty Jo Pickard, things are not going as planned. Fortunately , Russell Edginton vampire king of Mississippi feels obligated to help Sookie for saving his second in command, and for being attacked by a werewolf in his jurisdiction.
He takes Eric who pretends to be someone else and Sookie to his mansion to rest and heal.
Bubba, still obediently carrying out his orders , follows Sookie there and learns that Bill is being held prisoner in one of Edginton's buildings. The three come up with a rescue plan to save Bill and it works But they're not out of hot water just yet.
They still need to survive the ruthless werewolves who want to avenge their missing pack member and figure out who killed him. There's also the matter of Alcide's jealous on-and-off shapeshifter girlfriend, Debbie Pelt, who, despite being engaged to another shifter, wants to take Sookie out of Alcide's life for good.
Then of course there's the fact that Bill cheated on Sookie with Lorena, and was even planning on leaving her with out a word. Emotionally and physically drained, Sookie recinds both Bill's and Eric's invitations as an attempt to separate herself from all the chaos. Realizing just then that she still has Bill's secret project hidden in her house and now no vampire can access it.
