  1. Loving eric and sookie s chemistry I personally think that bill is a b tch lol he didnt even know that sookie was trying so hard to pay her bill And oh yeah remember when

  2. This book starts off with a bang Boring Bill announces he is leaving for Peru and Eric, the 6 4 Viking, makes an appearance in Bon Temps under a set of highly unusual circumstances he is running down the side of the road half naked and he has amnesia Now honestly, don t you think books should start with a half naked vampire who has amnesia If that doesn t appeal to you, well, to be perfectly honest, you and I might have a hard time finding something to laugh about together because that tickles [...]

  3. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum NOTE The Eric gifs are coming, but y all are gonna have to work for them By the time I reached Book 9 the end of the Sookie Stackhouse series, my reaction was something kinda like this I along with many other superfans of the Southern Vampire Series was extremely disappointed Not with the who will Sookie end up with part I mean seriously DUH when it came to that question I was bummed that it felt like Harris had thrown in the towel and just continued to m [...]

  4. Dear Charlaine,This may come off a little mean, but I need to start by saying that you are a bit of a hack But I don t mean that to be mean because the truth is I wouldn t want you to be anything other than the ass kicking, pseudo horror, pseudo romance, pseudo thriller hack that you are You are my go to guilty pleasure girl I love hanging out with Sookie and her crew, and that s all down to you I just wanted you to know that Dead to the World is my favourite of the bunch This had everything I l [...]

  5. Best of the series so far especially when i put faces to these characters from the TV show this has become a guilty pleasure of mine.

  6. So after Bill there s Eric, the superhot amnesiac vampire Whereas anybody else would run with the Mulholland Drivesque plotline and linger on the noir aspects that go hand in hand with vamp myth, Book 4 radically changes the series from the Twilight part of the spectrum to Buffy territory Proud to say that Dead to the World has less Sookie injuries and beastly bloodshed than any of the books that came before it There is still that erotic prose that owes lots to Anne Rice, the cute less than 30 [...]

  7. I m not going to lie I m feeling disappointed I have continuously heard that this is the Eric book From everyone who has EVER read these books Wait until you get to book 4 Who s Eric you ask.Let me show you He s a beautiful Viking vampire He is sex on a stick He will turn any woman s legs to jellod well other parts of her will be doing other things Reactions beyond your own controlWhat I really expected from this book was a ton of this Starring this ridiculous piece of man meat What I got instea [...]

  8. Dead to the World is the fourth installment in the Sookie Stackhouse series I actually read this a year or back but re read it last night again and realized I like it than 4 stars Eric is my favorite character to start with, but during this book I love the new Eric also He seemed so venerable and lost It was Eric from a simpler time, without all the death and pain He was reborn and cute as hell lol And I think Eric truly felt something for Sookie What could have been But, then Eric wouldn t be [...]

    2.5 StarsFirst off, I would like to thank both Kelly and Stepheny for allowing me to intrude upon their buddy read I do not believe it necessary to reiterate how much distaste I feel for Sookie Stackhouse If you care to know my explicit feelings in this matter, I go into rather intense detail in my reviewhere.I will merely say I find her moronic and tedious, for purposes of this review After reading this, the fourth book in the series, I think I have figured out what it is exactly that I cannot [...]

  10. It s Bloodsucker s Month with my lovely MacHalo beasties, so I m going for a re read of my favorite Sookie book It sThe ERIC Book First read ratings 5 starsNew re read rating 4 starsWell, I lowered my rating because the side stories in this just didn t interest me like they used to Jason is missing, the shifters from Hotspot are introduced, and there is a crazy were Witch vamp blood drinking brother and sister team roaming around causing problems Plus, my eyes glaze over every time she is in Mer [...]

  11. Ahhh, Eric swoon One of the best of the series, especially in terms of character development Sookie makes a very telling New Year s Resolution to avoid getting beat up And not half an hour later she s picking up a stray amnesiac vampire The chemistry between Eric and Sookie is wonderful Pam in her take charge mode is hilarious The Were community is complicated than ever And Sookie s knowledge of Supes is growing every day Charlaine Harris knows how to craft witty and interesting characters, wit [...]

  12. I found this book 4 in the series to be the least enjoyable thus far, although I still read it in a single evening To my way of thinking, this is a transitional volume Sookie Bill have broken up, so Sookie needs to find a new way to stay safe in the supernatural community that she is now aware of.The good aspects Harris continues her pretty accurate portrayal of small town life in North America minus the vampires werewolves, at least in my home town It can be petty and gossipy, but when bad thin [...]

  13. I m not sure why I didn t like this one as much as I thought I would.There were several things that happened within it that were hilarious and fantastic BUT there was a lack of something.I loved Pam, Bubba, Amnesiac Eric, Creepy Calvin.There was a lot going on, as always, is the case with Sookie, but I just wasn t really into it I felt like the story dragged a bit I wanted Eric time.I loved that Eric and Sookie finally got their freak on but it just didn t seem as fantastic as I thought it woul [...]

  14. You can t use blackmail on someone who doesn t know anything about the hold you have on them I ve heard a lot about Dead to the World the fourth installment of Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse mysteries being the Eric book , so I was definitely looking forward to reading it While I didn t completely love it, I wasn t too disappointed either, lol This book takes place three weeks after Club Dead, New years eve at Merlottes view spoiler Sookie s New Year resolution is to stay out of trouble and [...]

  16. My favorite book in this series so far Why you ask.Sookie, you lucky dog, you Yes Finally Sookie realizes that Eric is much better than Bill the Bore And, even better there is no Bill in this book except a few mentions towards the end I was feeling like my True Blood dreams were coming true.okay, I realize that I need to dream biggerBut Eric is not our normal Eric he s amnesia Eric because a witch cursed him So he s sweet, vulnerable, and open Now, that makes Sookie like him , and I admit that h [...]

  17. With Bill off to Peru, one night Sookie finds cocky, authoritative, smug Eric running almost naked down her road, his memory gone and his personality changed along with it She takes him in despite many misgivings, and learns from Pam that he s been cursed by a witch Then her brother Jason disappears and Sookie s worried the witches have taken him though how could they know about him Weres from Alcide s pack are being murdered and although she had promised herself not to get involved, she s also [...]

  18. Opening Line I found the note taped to my door when I got home from work More like a 3.5 actually Dead to the World is the 4th instalment from the addictive and entertaining Sookie Stackhouse series, which for the most part I m really enjoying This addition had a lot going for it with Harris setting up some intriguing scenarios for our returning cast of characters And once I got past the pages of repetitive back story I was quite excited about the prospects Unfortunately though as much as I enjo [...]

  19. Jan, 2009 Somewhat to my surprise, this book was every bit as good or a bit better than the previous ones Very enjoyable, quick read which for me to say about a 4th novel in a series is somewhat unusual I generally tire of series as repetition takes its toll Not in this case Some new oddities are introduced in a good, logical manner, opening the world up adding a bit depth Sookie s character develops our time line of events is confirmed This book takes place about a year after Sookie first mee [...]

  20. 5 Dead to the World Stars This book gets me right in the feels Sookie has a hard enough time keeping everyone else s thoughts out of her head, but then her brother goes missing Erik the freaking hot hunky vampire loses his memory And the Were community is looking to add a new breeder in to the mix and they have their eye on Sookie.I llllove the interaction between Sookie and Erik, even if he doesn t remember he is soo sweet to her He gets under her skin as only Erik can do.I loved how their rela [...]

  21. After thoroughly enjoying Club Dead, this one fell short of my expectations When Sookie finds Eric Northman the Viking vampire who owns the vampire bar Fangtasia in modern day Shreveport, Louisiana on the side of the road, he seems dazed and disoriented And with good reason he s lost his memory Gone is the smug, sarcastic, and arrogant Eric that Sookie s always known and, in his place, is a scared and dependent vampire And that s part of why I didn t like this as much Eric s just not as much fun [...]

  22. This book series got way better ever since Bill got out of the picture or at least Sookie lost interest in him More magical creatures, power struggles and romance Again, Sookie is a sweetheart and I loved the fun, fast paced writing.

  23. Como los otros libros de esta serie, me ha encantado Ni yo misma s por qu le doy solo 3 estrellitas Bueno, s , y es que me gust m s el tercero que este Y es que supongo que soy m s del Eric original que del encantado jajaja

  24. Book four, and the addition of the hackneyed amnesia device and some blood drinking were witches does nothing to help Harris s lazy characters and poor plot development skills.This series is so consistently and repetitively poor that it s hard to know how to express my disgust I ve resorted to highlighting a few points of particular chagrin to me Most nonsensical point The Hotshot kids who attended the Bon Temps school always stuck together,and they were all a smidge different.It didn t surpris [...]

  25. Rating 3.9 of fiveThe Publisher Says In Sookie Stackhouse a Southern cocktail waitress with a supernatural gift Harris has a created a heroine like few others, and a series that puts the bite back in vampire fiction Now the hit series launches into hardcover for Sookie s biggest twist filled adventure yet.When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn t just drive on by Turns out the poor thing hasn t a clue who he is, but Sookie does It s Eric the v [...]

  27. So, this installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series happens to be my favorite in the series In this book, Sookie is recovering from her broken relationship with Bill, and overall feeling a bit down One night, Sookie finds the Vampire Sheriff of area 5 wondering half naked down a street by her house Sookie takes the vampire in and gets caught up in another supernatural dilemma Eric, the vampire sheriff, has been cursed by witches and has no memory of who he is, or who anyone is for that matter T [...]

  28. I really loved this book Mainly because I loved the dynamic between Sookie and the memory addled Eric Plus the scenes with them a heming were HOT And Sookie didn t really get hurt too much, a nice change from the previous stories Once again, Bill was absent for most of the book, which was fine by me I much enjoy Sookie s interactions with Eric, Alcide and Sam What did confuse me a bit was him suddenly showing up for the fight and then when the fight was over nothing It was like he had disappear [...]

  29. I knew, as sure as I knew my name, that tomorrow he would send me another coat, in a big fancy box, with a big bow on it It would be the right size, it would be a top brand, and it would be warm.It was cranberry red, with a removable liner, a detachable hood, and tortoiseshell buttons.That ending, to me, was the sexiest part of the whole book Don t get me wrong there are plenty of hot sexy times with Eric The legendary shower scene anyone However, no matter what happened while Sookie and Eric we [...]

  30. I rarely read romance novels or chick lit, so I m not the usual audience for this type of novel, which may explain my rating compared to others here But I originally had found this series to be a fun and escapist read Club Dead book 3 is where my interest started waning, because personality traits established for characters in the first two novels especially Sookie s boyfriend Bill started going in the complete opposite direction Having Sookie get attacked beat up in every book sometimes than o [...]
