It's just an incredible and engrossing story. And I think part of that is the idea of an entire supernatural world outside but within our own normal and occasionally boring reality. The thought that just outside your door could be a world full of vampires, shapeshifters, werewolves, fairies, actual demons and angels is so enticing especially for those that desire that magic and fantasy to exist in the real world.
This book and the whole series is a wonderful escape into the exciting world of Sookie Stackhouse, as she discovers an almost unbelievable supernatural world right within her own humdrum (but not for long) life. From Sookie's first encounter with a vampire to the many adventures she has along the way, this series is absolutely worth taking the time to spend in her crazy little world.
As always, you'll find this novel full of action and adventure, romance and routine. It all comes together to continue the rather crazy life Sookie has been leading over the past several years. Although some of the other reviews have complained that this story is choppy, it needs to be to fit everything in. There is a lot that happens here. Although, I do have to say that there wasn't too much of a mystery in this installment. It was still a lot of fun!
Potential Spoiler Beware;
Like I said I may not have thought Quinn was suited for Sookie, I didn't care for how she just broke up with him the way she did. I can completely understand why but I did feel she was being a bit selfish. Another part was I do like Jason but man I didn't care for him when it came down to the punishment. He should have done it not Sookie and Arlene boy am I really beginning to if I haven't already despise her.
One thing I can say I am surprised just how fast of reads these books are, I don't find myself skipping any parts even though I may not care for how the story is going.
Also imagine being a young girl, who for reasons unknown, can hear people's thoughts. Sookie Stackhouse is a young waitress working in Merlotte's, a small town bar. She struggles every day to keep from hearing the thoughts of others. She walks around wishing to have a mind that is quiet.
Bill Compton enters Merlotte's one night and to Sookie's delight, she cannot hear his thoughts. Although he is a vampire, at least his mind is shut off from hers. Sookie and Bill struggle with whether a relationship will work or not (her daytime schedule vs his nighttime one) and with the other people's opinions (anger, jealousy, shame) about the idea of a human dating a vampire.
As if these issues aren't enough to deal with, now the quiet little town of Bon Temps has become home to a serial killer; one who just happens to prey on young women who've been with vamps before. Is the killer Bill the vampire or someone closer to Sookie?! The book was great and I enjoyed all the little twists and complications. I plan on starting the next novel immediately.
