Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana, but she keeps to herself and doesn’t date much because of her “disability” to read minds. When she meets Bill, Sookie can’t hear a word he’s thinking. He’s the type of guy she’s waited for all of her life, but he has a disability, too–he’s a vampire with a bad reputation. When one of Sookie’s coworkers is killed, she fears she’s next.
Having loved the True Blood TV series … actually, having DEVOURED the True Blood TV series … I thought I would enjoy these books.
From the first page, I knew I was going to be disappointed. The writing was horrible: there didn’t seem to be any thought going into what was being written on paper, so the author had a tendency to write down EVERYTHING, whether it mattered or not.
The “love” scenes were horribly written. Worse than Harlequin romances (and I actually don’t mind Harlequin romances!).
Since I read the book, I’ve lent it to 3 other people to read and they’ve all had the same feeling – like they’ve been violated. By a book. I never knew that could be possible, but it sure is.
Of course, now I have the other 6 books that came in the box set and I don’t think I’ll get around to reading them. I think I’ll stick with the TV show instead.
