I ve been consuming this series at a furious rate, seeing details that I just didn t see on my first pass through I believe that this is the volume where the private investigators show up to question Sookie, and we get an intersection between this series and Harris Lily Bard series When I first read this book, I hadn t been introduced to Lily yet, so this was a fun little detail It may have been the previous volume I m sucking back 2 books per evening right now and they are getting a bit blended in my memory.
I guess there are plenty of people in the world who are dying for attention of any kind, and if you treat them like a human being, they read far too much into that What a sad comment on the state of our world.
But back to Sookie, I can hardly wait to get my hands on the next volume and see which of this bunch of guys manages to win her attention. I have bitched to the moon and back about how judgmental I think Sookie is as a character and that hasn t changed at all here I know that she is a telepath and therefore hears any number of thoughts that one would not necessarily want to hear but that does NOT give her licence to judge every fucking person who crosses her path Seriously Cut this shit out, Sook We d all like to kill what we don t understand, what scares us, and I powerfully scared Andy Bellefleur.
Ex muthafucking cuse me Speak for yourself I don t want to kill things I don t understand, even if they scare me I want to understand them In the world I lived in, the world of human people, there were ties and debts and consequences and good deeds That was what bound people to society maybe that was what constituted society And I tried to live in my little niche the best way I could. For about two minutes, this might actually be fun Eric, I said, we had sex in every position I could imagine, and some I couldn t We had sex in every room in my house, and we had sex outdoors You told me it was the best you d ever had At the time he couldn t recall all the sex he d ever had But he d paid me a compliment Too bad you can t remember it, I concluded with a modest smile.
Eric looked like I d hit him in the forehead with a mallet For all of thirty seconds his reaction was completely gratifyingThis series is a whole a lot of fluff and absurdity, but it sure is entertaining in a Southern colloquial kind of way It makes me roll my eyes as well as laugh, so yes, I am definitely going to continue with the series and see where Sookie will end up.
Jar of Death Pick 15Dead as a Doornail is book 5 in the Southern Vampire series aka True Blood As always the further into a series I get the difficult I find it to review If you ve made to book 5 then you probably enjoy this series so I don t know what to add to that In Dead as a Doornail Sookie Stackhouse is dealing with a lot of serious shit but somehow she seems to handle it really well The title of the book is a dead giveaway to what Sookie s dealing with Someone really wants her dead As per usual in these books every man who Sookie meets wants to sleep with her Sure and she continues to juggle 3 men what a terrible problem to have If you liked book 4 Dead to the World then you will like Dead as a Doornail also Its a cute little series.
It will be interesting to see were things go with this NOw that Eric knows the secret he and Sookie share will he act on it And will Bill ever come around and wise up Or Sam And Alcide, who needs to stop blaming everyone else for his problems, he needs to grow up Plus Jason is still an ass, caring about his butt not being a suspect than his sister getting shot All in all the men in Sookie s life leave much to be desired She is still as spunky and great as ever, but needs better guys to work with.
Sigh Sookie, Sookie, Sookie, your fashion sense is still stuck in the eighties I blame this on the author, who no doubt thinks she s writing you up to date I myself, did a face palm, when I read about your lipstick matching your red earrings and your red socks with your black work pants Yeah, I did that in junior high, too Questionable fashion aside, I still really enjoy this character She had some tough times this book, what with having no sexual escapades the first time ever, although it seems like every male in the town is interested in her must be the red socks , getting shot, and having part of her house burn down Unfortunately, it was just her back porch and kitchen that burned, so her collection of hair scrunchies were saved I ve also decided that I m pretty well over the werewolves in this book Alcide, a character I liked in past books, is kind of a jerk here and the whole head of the pack competition grossed me out That said, I m happy to read the next in the series.
A decent read But Ms Stackhouse s attraction to every available guy and vice versa made me eye roll and I kept saying to myself, not again and wait what about Bill, Eric, Alcide and Sam and on and on.
