I recently finished the latest installment in the series – Dead and Gone – and LOVED it (as I knew I would). Once again, Sookie is stuck in the middle of a murder mystery and hopefully, she won’t be next. I love the anecdotes about her mindreading – all the disgraceful things she hears – much more chilling than what Edward Cullen supposedly hears (cat?! – but love him) – and then there’s the romance and intrigue and Eric…*sigh*…Eric. But alas, HBO will turn my romantic, sexy, funny, entertaining book into a sex fest that I’m embarrassed to watch with my parents present – and I’m definitely old enough that I shouldn’t be embarrassed but nevertheless, I will be red-cheeked.
So – just in case you’ve seen the show and contemplated getting the books, I say GO FOR IT! The books are amazing and you’ll see so much more depth to the characters and so many more plots unfold (that actually make sense, unlike the whole Tara thing in Season 1 – blech).
