  1. Charlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over twenty five years A native of the Mississippi Delta, she grew up in the middle of a cotton field Now she lives in southern Arkansas with her husband, her three children, three dogs, and a duck The duck stays outside.Though her early output consisted largely of ghost stories, by the time she hit college Rhodes, in Memphis Charlaine was writing poetry and plays After holding down some low level jobs, she had the opportunity to stay home and write, and the resulting two stand alones were published by Houghton Mifflin After a child producing sabbatical, Charlaine latched on to the trend of writing mystery series, and soon had her own traditional books about a Georgia librarian, Aurora Teagarden Her first Teagarden, Real Murders, garnered an Agatha nomination.Soon Charlaine was looking for another challenge, and the result was the much darker Lily Bard series The books, set in Shakespeare, Arkansas, feature a heroine who has survived a terrible attack and is learning to live with its consequences When Charlaine began to realize that neither of those series was ever going to set the literary world on fire, she regrouped and decided to write the book she d always wanted to write Not a traditional mystery, nor yet pure science fiction or romance, Dead Until Dark broke genre boundaries to appeal to a wide audience of people who just enjoy a good adventure Each subsequent book about Sookie Stackhouse, telepathic Louisiana barmaid and friend to vampires, werewolves, and various other odd creatures, has drawn readers The Southern Vampire books are published in Japan, Great Britain, Greece, Germany, Thailand, Spain, France, and Russia.In addition to Sookie, Charlaine has another heroine with a strange ability Harper Connelly, lightning struck and strange, can find corpses and that s how she makes her living.In addition to her work as a writer, Charlaine is the past senior warden of St James Episcopal Church, a board member of Mystery Writers of America, a past board member of Sisters in Crime, a member of the American Crime Writers League, and past president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance She spends her spare time reading, watching her daughter play sports, traveling, and going to the movies.

  1. With Sookie as her mouthpiece, Charlaine Harris opened up the floor for the discussion of genre fiction in this latest installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series, because it turns out our sweet little friend Sookie proudly claims a self education through none other than two of the least respected forms of the genre novel romance novels and trashy mysteries The snob in me wants to snort in disdain and feel offended for liking Sookie But the other half, the half that isn t afraid to admit that I [...]

  2. The adventures continue this one breaks from the original romance into very bizarre terrain Still terrific enough to make me keep reading em.Everyone around Sookie is threatened, and she gets beat up in every single book She endures so much and how much time has elapsed Actually two seasons only half a year That she endures so much and the fact that the plot breaks at times, goes many places except where you think it will go main characters can die within two pages, sometimes two paragraphs no o [...]

  3.

  4. 2.65 Parts of this book got me so angry, I don t even feel like writing a review Here is a good one that reflects my feelings though review show

  5. Sookie has never been the brightest bulb in the pack, but she hits an all time low in the intelligence department in this book Her most grievous offence, in my eyes, is that she continues to pine for boring, bland Bill throughout this book Bill is not only boring, but he s a cheating asshole Why Bill is an asshole list 1 He is boring2 He has no sense of humor3 He is filthy rich and yet lets his love scrape and scratch to live in poverty4 Even if he wasn t rich, he never brings her flowers or doe [...]

    Going off challenge here for a little bitey reading with my girl, Kristin Saturday, March 7ReviewFirst things first, idiotic MC rant time Things Sookie sucks at Picking men on this later Being self aware Not being a judgmental pratt Wearing anything that s not entirely tacky Appearing anything like intelligent I didn t mind this installment of the series, for the most part I liked the addition of Alcide and while no one can out gun Joe M I found his character rather endearing I enjoyed the mali [...]

  7. Annoying, boring, charmless, dumb Since I was already on a roll of unpleasant books, I finally forced myself to read my second her third novel the magazine SFX had made me import two with their misleading review.After a typical cold, boring interlude showing how irresistable he is he wears flanel and has hair , vampire Bill disappears at the start of the book and readers are supposed to be stupid enough to fear for his life Even if Sookie s feelings hadn t been so badly written, I still wouldn t [...]

  8. Yes, I m still reading this series Great literature Hell, no An enjoyable, sort of mindless read, sure There are parts that I find very funny, such as Sookie using her word of the day calendar to improve her vocabulary and the part where the Viking vampire Eric mentions that he took English as a second language in a community college course in the 70 s That sort of stuff is pretty humorous The parts that annoy me are the writer s fashion sense It kills me when I read her description of Sookie be [...]

  9. Club Dead for me is where the Sookie Stackhouse series really starts getting its feet under it Things are definitely not well between Sookie and her boyfriend vampire Bill, and as Sookie heads to Mississippi to track him down and rescue him from lethal peril, she is torn between the attentions of the werewolf Alcide and way attention than she d like from the vampire Eric, who is growing and interested in her with every book Unfortunately for Sookie s peace of mind, the interest is becoming mu [...]

  13. Opening Line Bill was hunched over the computer when I let myself in his houseUB DEAD is the third instalment from the Sookie Stackhouse series and I really enjoyed this one, having finally come to terms with the fact that this is urban fantasy and not paranormal romance I was able to focus on the action, horror, humour and mystery aspects here and just let the romance take a back seat Sookie is also starting to feel like a delightful, adventurous friend who I can t wait to hear from to learn wh [...]

  14. The Sookie Stackhouse books are definitely not great literature by any means, but they re a bit like candy hard to stop reading and very enjoyable This third book was of the same, and while there were times I wanted to slap Sookie even though she gets beat up a number of times in here.n What s with Charlaine Harris s obsession with beating the snot out of Sookie all the time, anyway , I really enjoyed reading this.The main thing I liked was actually the introduction of werewolves into the world [...]

  15. Terrible Worst line Somehow, it had never crossed my mind I guess since I m an American that the vampires who had snatched Bill might be resorting to evil means to get him to talk Is Sookie that naive Is Harris that naive If only there was some irony intended here But no, it would seem that the moral centre of these books is the concept of goodness as represented by America, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, a wondrous country so tolerant that even Vampires can be accepted without difficul [...]

  16. Once again, Harris has continued to improve from one book to the next, thought it still has its flaws The story starts a little slow, and gets monotonous at times, but it picks up toward the end, making the overall book pretty enjoyable These books truly are like candy for the brain.I was very pleased to find that Bill was missing in action for most of this installment, but despite the reprieve, he still managed to inspire a whole new level of loathing on my part I hope that Harris doesn t allow [...]

  18. Madre m a Esto es vicio No s c mo lo hace esta autora, pero con cada nuevo libro que leo, s lo consigue engancharme m s Na a por el cuarto, que no tengo esperajajaja

  19. The third installment of Sookie, and I feel that she represents many of the best qualities of a Southern woman Her appearance is important to her, but beneath that obvious outer layer, there is a strong, tough woman lurking, one who can handle a shotgun or a baseball bat She s no shrinking violet, like a steel magnolia Sookie is generally content with her lot in life, which is small town life, and this may annoy ambitious readers I have some sympathy for her, having grown up in a small communi [...]

  20. Notes This is, for now, my favourite book in the series and it s not a coincidence that Bill goes missing for the most of it I m quite torn about this series since, while I like the stories a lot and I m curious about what ll happen next, I can t stand very much 2 of the major characters Sookie Bill I find both of them quite annoying their relationship just doesn t trasmit me anythingever for 2 I don t like there are some I love First of all Eric that I liked from the start and that I find a ver [...]

  21. The air was cold and wet, and if you stood still for a moment the chilling damp would creep into your bones I could tell the temperature was taking a dive, and the bright sky of the morning was a fond memory It was an appropriate day to dump a body.Sookie Stackhouse, waitress, telepath, is new to the wider supernatural world, especially given her relationship with vampire Bill Compton However, Bill becomes MIA, and Sookie is informed that he has taken up with an old girlfriend and then managed t [...]

  22. Finally, I m able to give a Charlaine Harris novel a 4 star Club Dead is the best in the series and you can tell that Harris is beginning to work through some of the weaknesses that I ve noted in the first two books One thing that Harris has done right is to realize that, once the star crossed lovers finally get together, the audience s interest begins to wane As an audience, we want the will they, won t they tension In Dead Until Dark, we have that tension between Sookie and Bill In Living Dead [...]

  23.

  24. Save for the cheesy dramas made of Danielle Steele s crappy books,I have never preferred books transferred to the screen In the case of Steele s books, at least on screen the characters become 3 dimensional But in the case of the Sookie Stackhouse books, I am going to make another exception to the rule.The HBO series True Blood in raunchy, violent and vulgar, but it is also fabulously entertaining And by introducing other 3 dimensional characters and other plot lines it doesn t force Sookie to c [...]

  25. The 3rd instalment in the Sookie Stackhouse series Club Dead again finds Sookie in a bad situation thanks to her new Vampire friends , but she also seems to have Vampire Bill, Vampire Eric Werewolf Alcide all vying for her attention as well I guess every cloud has a silver lining Myself, I would probably choose Alcide or maybe Eric The Sookie Stackhouse novels are light, fast fun reads Definitely enjoyable.

  27. For the first third of Club Dead, my same old complaint about Sookie Stackhouse was widening and deepening, and I thought it was finally going to take its toll on my enjoyment of Charlaine Harris books Even now, even after Harris won me back and entertained the hell out of me, I am still not sure how I feel about Sookie s behaviour, and I fear for my long term enjoyment of the series You see, Sookie is a hypocrite of gargantuan proportions From Dead Until Dark to Club Dead, Sookie has made out o [...]
