õ Dead Until Dark Ó Download by õ Charlaine Harris The television show True Blood was better than this in every sense it completely transcended it Well, at least, before the fourth season hit and the writing went down the toilet But that s a separate issue altogether The show took Charlaine Harris s book and made the story better it made it sexy and scary But, let s not forget that without this there would have been no show whatsoever So fans of the television show do owe a lot to Charlaine Harris Her writing for me though can be summed up in one word tepid She has the characters and some strong ideas, but she just can t insert life into her prose Where was the shock factor Where were the cheap thrills and the melodrama Normally I d criticise a book for having these, but this one so desperately needed them I didn t find this story remotely exciting it had no sense of drive, and, again, it lacked the sex appeal of the televisi I can t remember if I started the books before the show or started the books after becoming obsessed with the show But who really cares I loved this world and still do The first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series I confess I picked this up at the bookstore for a few reasons 1 The cover was sparkly and I liked the art 2 Vampires Having spent a huge chunk of my youth hoping the vampires in Anne Rice s novels would knock on my window late at night shut up, like you didn t I have been looking for the next Brad Pitt with fangs shut up, like you aren t And yeah That was all it took Sparkles and vampires SOLD.
I opened up the book and kinda regreted it and thought Well that s what you getThe main character is called WHAT Sookie Stackhouse And she is blond and a bar waitress and likes to flaunt her tight clothes and tans out in her lawn in a bikini Hu But I never almost never stop reading a book once I start so I bravely forged ahead And suddenly I stopped laughing and the pages started turning and I found myself thinking about the boo I started reading this series because I was currently watching True Blood and had developed a slight obsession with Eric Since then, the books have become an absolute guilty pleasure of mine They are not the best written and occasionally we get a little too much of what we don t care for i.
e fairies and shifters but amid the hot vamp sex and murder mysteries who really notices those anyway Most characters have both annoying and redeeming qualities, but this is good I never did like the I can do nothing wrong hero heroine Plus Eric is hot have I said this already If you re looking for a life changing experience, try The Handmaid s Tale, but if you want something light, chick lit style and kinda sexy too Sookie Stackhouse and her merry band of random supernatural creatures are where it s at That probably sounded like a cheesy, promotional ad but what the hell.

DNF at 50% Sookie, Sookie, Sookie Because of you most of my friends either hate me or think I m a total freak They think you re quirky, I think you re silly They think your story is better than candy, I think your story is the most uninteresting ever Sorry guys, I don t think this review is going to go well.
I was recently told I was snarky and a cold hearted, impatient cynic you know who you are people Guilty as charged Which might partly explain why I didn t like this Chick lit meets bad PNR as written by a 17 year old clearly is not me The story Uninteresting at best Apart from that Boring to death There is only so much I can read about Sookie s daily life taking a shower, shaving her legs, plucking her eyebrows, putting on body lotion and deodorant Seriously Arrrgggghhhhh
Stephenie Meyer has nuthin on this woman understatement Harris has in one pinky all the talent of the aforementioned hack, and her huge fan base must take note Dead Until Dark is a loud middle finger to all those in deep love therefore those with questionable tastes with the Twilight series.
This book reminds me that not all fiction has to be poetry This one has a clear plot, it ties together all loose ends It s enthralling, addictive, everything one wants in the PERFECT paperback novel If only I knew about it before the HBO series True Blood on which this book, book 1, is based I would have definitely watch the series, but its occurred vice versa The series explores characters, has sex violence duh, HBO but does not touch the same ground this one cleverly hides within its first look junk lit verse.
Sookie is the Everygirl, Sigh I tried to give this a fair chance, I really did I went into it hopeful, despite some other negative reviews that I ve read, because I quite liked the pilot for True Blood, the new HBO series based on these books Dark, however, loses points from me right away because the two most interesting characters on the show Sookie s cranky best friend Tara, and Lafayette, the fabulous in every sense of the word chef at the bar where Sookie works either completely don t exist or have only the tiniest of roles, respectively Lame Still, I find the basic premise Harris has cooked up intriguing in this world, vampires have come out of the coffin and are public knowledge they can drink Japanese manufactured synthetic blood and have basic human rights On the show I believe they are still working toward those rights, but it has I d never heard of these books until a few months ago, and as usual, once one person recommends them, everyone seems to be talking about them, you see them everywhere, and you get curious They re in the fantasy section, though for some bizarre reason I was under the impression, at first, that they were YA and silly They are fun, but they are definitely for adults The vampire mystery style reminds me of the one Anita Blake book I read, the first one, which was horrible can t say that enough times the similarities aren t obvious or anything, but perhaps because Dead Until Dark isn t paranormal romance, and it s not like The Turning or the Black Dagger Brotherhood books, Anita Blake is the closest comparison.
Oh but this book is soooooo much better After a slightly rocky start in which the writing confused me a bit something that also reminded me of Guilty Pleasures, perhaps
