This was an enjoyable, easy read. I don't consider it a classic or anything, but Charlaine Harris does know how to have some fun with the well-worn vampire genre. (I'd say I liked it more than the Twilight books but not as much as early Anne Rice. It's more explicit and grownup than Stephenie Meyer's stuff, but not as dark as Rice's Lestat books.) The characters are interesting, the plot held more than a few surprises and the telepathic main character offers some creative possibilities for moving the story along.

Until last month, I lived in total ignorance of Sookie Stackhouse. Now, I'm almost current with all the books about her. She is a most engaging heroine! The stories become wilder with each installment, but our Sookie is as lovable and confused as ever. Wonderfully drawn world and fascinating characters. I haven't seen the HBO series, but the books are enough for me. Make sure to purchase the ones with the fabulous cover illustrations by Lisa Desimini. Each illustration depicts an actual moment in the tale. Sure hope Charlaine Harris has as much fun writing these as I have reading them.

These books are incredible! This series I think anyone can read because even though there's a lot to do with vampires and other fantastical creatures, there are real life issues that anyone can relate to. Plus they are a fast read because you get so sucked in and before you know it you're almost done with the series!

It was very difficult for me to choose my favorite in the Sookie Stackhouse series. But I chose DEAD UNTIL DARK, because it is the first one in the series, and after reading it I was hooked! I'm now on book 9, FROM DEAD TO WORSE. If you enjoy mysteries with a paranormal twist, you should try Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series, beginning with DEAD UNTIL DARK. :-)

I must admit, I didn't even hear about these books, until I began watching True Blood on HBO. The books, are wayy better, as is any book to movie project, but still, the writers ability to pull you in, to make you a part of Sookie and Bill's world, you feel like you are right there with them, and when you snap back into reality, are actually a bit sadend that Vampires, and Shape Shifters, are only in books.
