Which brings me to my next point. And I'm not talking waiting for the climax, just answers to questions that you've been more than patient waiting for. Or maybe I'm just a demanding ass who can't wait. Could be both. As this series progresses, it's like there's always 10 subplots within the plot.
And by that point, I kinda recognize the name, but I'm scratching my head trying to remember who the hell they were and what part they played. There's just not enough for you to invest in them, therefore my brain is not making a good mental note of them. Honey, we're 11 books in now, stop being so shocked. Someone got beheaded? Psh, we saw that like book 1.
OMG, she lost a limb! Wait, been there, saw that. You yourself even point out in the climax that of all the bloody, horrific things you are seeing, only one is new to you. I get the upset in the first few books.
Now you just need to put on the big girl panties and adjust already. It's you or them, and you shouldn't feel guilty for defending your life, and the lives of those you love. Now, while I can concede that a trauma is a trauma, she shouldn't still be having this shellshocked reaction. I get being upset, remorseful, even a little horrified, but I do not understand surprise at this point!!!
By now, we've had plenty of bloody, fight-for-your-life battles. This isn't new for you. Please start responding accordingly.
While as a woman I can understand the things you want and value in a significant other, I don't think it makes sense to for you to expect just that in something that is not human.
Accordingly, you cannot demand the all the same aspects of a human relationship in a relationship with a vampire. And sometimes she does. But for me she still acts too much like this is her first rodeo with a vampire and I find it frustrating.
Maybe I'm biased because I've got it bad for Eric. Who could resist this face?? I can't, that's for sure.
It's bad enough that you use, almost verbatim, the same descriptions for multiple things in EVERY book! Even worse, you do it multiple times in a single book. If I have to read Sookie describe what happened to Bubba every time his name graces a page, I will scream. Guess what? I am not a moron, so I understood perfectly well what you meant the first times you described it the last 10 books. It does not bear repeating!!!!! The good stuff: Though the books are kind of predictable in the way that you always know that Sookie and friends will have a problem, but you know that they always save the day, for me the stories have mostly stayed refreshing enough.
I love how she manages to find trouble right up until the end. And that keeps me entertained. Pam has to be my favorite character.
She makes me laugh every time. I love her dry humor, her random exclamations "fuck a zombie!! I am always excited when she appears. The last quarter of the book was fantastic and had me totally engrossed. I just wish I could say that for the rest of it.
Alas, I still will be excited for the next installment and I hope the series will start to redeem itself. In summary: View all 4 comments. Jun 10, Jilly rated it it was ok Shelves: You know the expression "Jumping the Shark" for a television show that has been on too long and gotten horrible?
Well, this book series has definitely been to Sea World on a motorcycle. I hope he had this book in his hand And, although I can be quite a masochist when it comes to finishing a series that I've started, I'm officially done.
Sookie has actually managed to become even more unlikable in t You know the expression "Jumping the Shark" for a television show that has been on too long and gotten horrible? Sookie has actually managed to become even more unlikable in this book. I didn't think that was possible, and yet, here it is. I mean, we already knew she was stupid. Even she admits it. Okay, I've been stupid in the past.
Not consistently stupid, but occasionally stupid. Uh, no Sookie, you have been consistently stupid. Plus, she is vain, selfish, and delusional. But, she did do one thing right and that was to get together with Eric. Unfortunately for Eric, though, is that she is a really crappy girlfriend.
She is rude, argumentative, never understanding or compassionate, and rash. She breaks their blood bond without even talking to him first. It is like the equivalent of going to Mexico for a quickie divorce from your husband and then wondering why his feelings are hurt.
I should have called Eric and warned him what was about to happen. But I'd been afraid he'd talk me out of it Oh, okay then. If you want to do something that you know that your spouse would absolutely be against, just do it behind their back.
Oops, sorry about that. I guess a little "heads up" would have been nice. So, even though I waited forever for Sookie and Eric to finally get together, I have to say that I now think that Eric can do a lot better. The only people I will miss in the series: I read along slowly and with a mild interest, and then it was over. It was very forgettable. But it all seemed to be washed out and repetitive and old in this book. It was like her character had suddenly been re-cast with a much older, less charismatic actress.
The thing is, I am a huge fan of characters evolving and changing over time. The opposite is the now dreadful to me hermetically sealed world of Stephanie Plum, where characters are not allowed to advance in any way. So, I think that this might be the end for me and Sookie. But, I have a prediction - view spoiler [who wants to bet me that she uses the c. Perfect Musical Pairing Rascal Flatts — These Days I just want to take a minute to say thank you for generic leather ebook cases, and car windows that close.
Someone told me, after college, you all lost your personalities and became puppets. Wow, that ain't the folks I knew. There's a reckoning on the way Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana. It's a job which has its own challenges, but now the vampires and the shapeshifters are finally 'out', you'd think the supernaturals would get on with each other. But nothing is that simple in Bon Temps! Since Sam Merlott Rating: Since Sam Merlotte is known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area.
Sookie suspects otherwise, but before she can investigate something else - something even more dangerous - comes up. Sookie's lover Eric Northman, and his 'child' Pam are plotting something in secret. Whatever it is, they seem determined to keep Sookie out of it; almost as determined as Sookie is to find out what's going on.
She can't sit on the sidelines when both her work and her love life are under threat - but as their plans gradually become clear Sookie finds the situation is deadlier than she could ever have imagined.
My Review: Sookie Stackhouse's latest print outing. I'm sure I missed something along the way. Too many givens aren't what my memory offers It certainly feels that way when one is internetless for long stretches! Facts I gave not a second's thought to, because I could pop online and look 'em up, are all wetware storage reliant.
I suspect the little elf who does my mental filing has grown very lazy in these internetty years. Our various dramatis personae are all a-whirl in this outing Victor's got his knickers in a knot because he felt he should be King of Louisiana, not just Regent.
Felipe chose to keep Eric, Sookie's vampire-rite husband, as Sheriff, the only individual so favored, and thus Victor's gunning literally and figuratively for him.
Eric, Sookie, and some oddly assorted allies decide that gunnin' for someone is a two-way street after Victor is revealed as the force behind the new vamp club ruining Eric's business, and the roadhouse ruining Sam's beloved Merlotte's, in an unsubtle effort to make Eric come for Victor so Eric can be killed without explanation or expiation.
Yeah, good luck with that. And good luck to Eric in his new, unexpected, and possibly Sookie-less life, as arranged by his now-dead maker, very different from the one he has in True Blood. Cataliades the demon literally not pejoratively lawyer, Amelia the renegade witch and her former pussycat Bob, and a return visit from nutball Sandra Pelt, and the corpses stack up to agreeable heights in the accustomed way of Harris's books.
As is expected in this series, the ending is another sea-change in the life of the Sookster, not yet brought quite to fruition. If this technique has palled on you, avoid this book.
Well, what can one say? I mentioned in the last review that I wasn't at all ready to give up on bookish Bon Temps. This book does nothing to push me in one direction or the other.
I liked it, and I was very pleased as always to immerse myself in the supe-filled universe that Sookie inhabits.
I suspect that, barring a return to the terrible flatness of the un-fun All Together Dead , I'll read along in the series. I won't be out trolling for converts, though, like I do with Louise Penny's addictive-as-chocolate-coated-nicotine-infused-heroin-enrobed-crack Three Pines mysteries. I don't imagine my non-proselytic stance will harm Mother Harris's rep or bottom line. I'll have to loop back and fill in some details from the book I missed. I suspect I've got the gist from Harris's carefully crafted fill-ins, but some of the fill-ins have left me curious about the full version.
Good job, Mother Harris! I'm tough to inveigle! A concordance? How Biblical. I might not like Sookie's Jesusy thoughts, but isn't this a bit much? View all 6 comments. Nov 28, Yui rated it liked it. The following may contain spoilers. Let me just get this quote out of my mind for it's been bugging me ever since I started reading DR.
I suffered with 3. I suffered with you, I hurt with you. I bled with you-not only because we're bonded, but because of the love I have for you. This was spoken by Eric in Dead in the Family. It keeps playing in the back of my mind while and after I read this. It is probably one of the stalest lines I have ever read but I remember the first time I read it in the back of Dead And Gone as a special preview while Sookie's torture is still fresh, I didn't find it corny or flat.
It was one of the most emotional moments for me in the series. And even now I still feel more emotion than the actual written words. It served me as a charm throughout this book. The story in this book is divided in two parts.
First is the attempt on Sookie's life. I admit I was satisfied and can classify this as a mystery worthy of Sookie Stackhouse but the perpetrator is an old character and is solved halfway thru the book. The second is the threat of Victor. I wasn't satisfied with this one because they have been dancing with him for 4 books now and they still ended up fighting him face to face.
They have planned very carefully and in the end it seemed like the sufferings they endured and the time waiting was wasted since they defeated him easily. They even brought two new characters to plan and help but they ended up being useless.
One of the characters I like who has a grudge with Victor is Heidi. She is talented and her story is very interesting. Her son was being held like a hostage to ensure her loyalty to Victor and it's a very good angle to work with but her worth was wasted because they focused on the other human who has no special traits and other contribution to offer. It really wasn't a bad read all in all.
The writing is good. The story is good. I probably won't be complaining if it's my first C. Harris novel but since I've been following the series for years, it didn't meet my expectations. It might as well have ended up with a big cliff hanger since there have been new mysteries introduced like Sookie's real grandfather Fintan and a new threat to Sookie in life and in matters of the heart but both were left hanging. I feel instead of going forward, the story is going backward.
Sookie started second guessing her self and her relationship with Eric isn't going forward. They're married and they share a bond that lets them feel each others emotion but they still don't know each other well. They should have matured in their relationship by now but they are like a new couple on their 3rd date. The endearments Sookie's using honey, honeybun?
Instead of being sweet I feel like it's a sarcasm and been having bad premonitions. Even the supporting characters are backtracking. Bill's back to throwing hints at Sookie which he should not be doing since Sookie's married already in vampire law with his sheriff no less!
And everyone has a secret agenda and needs something from Sookie. It's like after years of struggling and coming out with friends in life threatening situations you should have been able to identify by now if not who your enemy is at least who your allies are. But no.
It's like the past life savings didn't matter. Every body's plotting. Maybe Harris should wrap this series up and start another one instead of planning another 10 books with this. After 10years she still couldn't commit how many Sookie Stackhouse novels she's planning to write.
I always thought this is a good thing because every SS books is long well written story and always bring something new. It's probably not Harris' fault that she spoiled us with the complex plots and many different treats before that the last 2 books feels like an anthology compare to the past 9 books. Maybe I'm just angry because I've been waiting for years for this Victor showdown and in the anticipation I didn't mind how much the price of this book is higher than the previous ones.
I thought it's ok since the series has become quite popular and a lot of crappy novels are popping out and I sometimes find it insulting when a crappy book is priced higher than the really good ones but now I think the pricing is absurd.
It is still worth a download and even if a friend lend me a copy I will still pay to get my own definitely. But I could have waited for the original price to go down first View all 5 comments. The Southern Vampire Mysteries are not great books.
Charlaine Harris is not a great author.
There something about these books that I have always liked. I like the southern feel of the books. What will happen now?
They kill Victor. They kill Sandra. The blood bond is broken very easily and that shows that Charlaine Harris is not good at planning her books. She brings a twist in a book,regrets it and then has to think of a lame way to get rid of it.
Alcide shows up for one scene,Bill is there sometimes. I felt,there were a lot of plot holes. I still haven't figured out who sent Hod and the other guy to kidnap Sookie. It felt contrived,something done to get Bill in the middle of things.
Eric is being weaved out of the story gradually. Sookie will end up with Sam IMO. I think she should wrap it up soon or even the most faithful readers will get bored and be done with them Jan 24, Camille rated it did not like it.
Ok, I'm pissed.
I really enjoyed the series up until this point and I really feel like this was simply a contractual obligation. There were some parts that were completely boring and hard to get through. There is so much double talk and all around the subject, that i couldn't get into it.
Hell, from the first few pages I noticed that Sookie's voice was changed and it was not in a good way. What happened? The things about the characters that we all grew to love even if they were evil and unjust Ok, I'm pissed. The things about the characters that we all grew to love even if they were evil and unjust all changed. Eric feeling bad about something that could put him up on the vampire chain of command?
Claude being helpful? Bill being so overtly sexual? Alcide leader of the pack doing what a fairy and a witch tell him? Who are these people? I want my NOW, i will never know what happens to Sookie because I probably won't read the next book.
For shame. I'm going to go back and read the first book and pretend like none of this happened. View all 3 comments. May 11, Lighthearted rated it did not like it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
To view it, click here. What is happening to the Sookie Stackhouse series??? In what universe would southern gentleman Bill tell Sookie she has great tits? As the book continued, it became more and more ridiculous.
She also forgets to lock the door behind her. Uh huh. If Harris wanted Sookie naked in front of Bill, she should have worked harder to create a more believable scenario. The fight scene at Fangtasia was nearly as bad.
Was I supposed to laugh at this? And Eric may have his selfish tendencies but unless the previous books were a lie, he loves Sookie and would not have chomped on her neck like that, even angry.
Dec 28, Wanda rated it liked it Shelves: One evening you hand out sharpened stakes, the next cake and napkins. This is the volume of the series where Sookie realizes how much her life has changed—how much she has changed. I amazed, actually, at how many human relationship issues that Harris manages to tackle through this urban fantasy soap-opera. Still loving Pam, still carrying a torch for Bill, really appreciating Bubba.
Jan 29, Carrie rated it it was ok. Well I was anxiously awaiting the release of this book, hoping it would redeem the series for me after the last one. Well I regret to say it didn't. Yes, it was better than the last one but it still left me dissatisfied.
I'm not sure if it's me who has lost interest in the series or the author but if you ask me her heart just isn't in it anymore. I miss the bad ass Eric from the earlier books and wish he would come back. I'm tired of all the Sookie drama seriously how much trouble can one per Well I was anxiously awaiting the release of this book, hoping it would redeem the series for me after the last one.
I'm tired of all the Sookie drama seriously how much trouble can one person get into and I'm over the whole love triangle thing already. So I guess there it is. The book was just ok.
At least it was better than the last one but was it good enough to keep me invested in any future books? I really don't think so, I may have to lay the Sookie Stackhouse series to rest. May 11, Sue Herbert rated it it was ok. Sookie, Sookie, Sookie. Will you make up your mind whether you like vampires or not? I begin to think Sookie Stackhouse is actually not that nice a person.
Perhaps I have over exposed myself, having ploughed my way through all the novels so far in short order, but there are elements on Dead Reckoning which feel awfully contrived. If you were being pursued by people in the rain and wanted to hide in a house, would you think of taking off ALL your clothes and dumping them in a bush? I mean how muc Sookie, Sookie, Sookie. I mean how much do damp bra and knickers drip? Nope, not convinced, I felt that was a contrivance to create a situation, for no good reason that I could see other than to satisfy a particular fan base.
I heard an interview with Ms Harris and even she could not really explain the reason for this episode. Then there is a Eric situation. I felt the books had what is now known as a 'story arch' in which Sookie was led, despite herself, towards Eric and he, despite himself, to her.
This was all rather satisfying. Except that it now appears we may have peaked too soon, come to a climax prematurely and we're now heading downhill toward another conclusion altogether. Which can surely only be an anti climax, especially if Sookie does decide ultimately that what she wants is a nice domestic life, iced tea on the porch and someone to share it with. Looks to me as if she could end up with Sam after all at this rate. I have nothing against Sam, I'd just hoped for something more dramatic as a conclusion after what will be apparently be 13 books in all.
Not to mention all that death, blood and destruction which Sookie now appears to think she dislikes, despite having been co-instigator of the most recent bout Sookie's attitude to her vampire lovers is inconsistent. She complains that Eric is scary and violent, yet dear lovely Bill kills three humans in defence of Sookie one of them a relation in the first book and this is never brought up against him.
Watch Charlaine Harris
She complains that Eric is excited by violence and death, but she forgave Bill for having exactly the same reaction after the Dallas incident, when the Church of the New Sun attached the vampires and Bill ran off in pursuit instead of making sure Sookie was OK. She knows full well the fealty a vampire owes to his maker, it led to her break up with Bill, but when the full implications of this hit home, she's somewhat grumpy about it.
She never has any consideration for the feelings of the men in her life, it's all about how what they do affects her. Does she really love any of them, or does she just enjoy the sex? I was left feeling that this book is setting us up for a conclusion I am possibly not going to like. I'll read the books anyway, they are a light, easy read and often very enjoyable. I thought I liked Sookie Stackhouse, but the selfishness she is starting to exhibit grates somewhat at the end of Dead Reckoning. Maybe she has to get selfish to protect herself, but the violent world she lives and loves in, was very much of her choosing.
I guess if I become depressed I can always go back and read 'Dead to the World' again. Eric fan? How did you guess? View 1 comment. Nov 13, Cat Russell Addicted2Heroines rated it liked it.
It's a very sad day for me when I have to give Miss Stackhouse an average 3 star rating. I missed being in Sookie's world, but not so much that I enjoyed trailing along with her while she cleaned her home, picked up breakfast, pumped her gas, showered, shaved her legs, or washed dirty dishes. I understand Sookie is one of the more ordinary characters - to an extent- in a world that has become abundant in supernaturals, but I was desperately wishing for more action on numerous occassions.
It was less than satisfying, and not just because of the major obstacle that was revealed. I didn't find the predicament with view spoiler [Sandra Pelt hide spoiler ] intense or suspenseful. I realize she was maniacal and dangerous, but she was also something else.
Also, it would have been nice if we were actually able to get to know a little more about Miriam. The circumstances were unfortunate, but since I knew almost nothing about her, it was difficult to stir up any strong emotions with the direction that particular situation went in.
This is where I would mention the ordeal with Alcide, but I'm not going to because I've recently decided that it's too absurb to acknowledge. Then there were other problems I had that I suppose would be considered more trivial. For example, Eric's new daytime man - a person who should, at the very least, be trustworthy.
Eric has never come across as an individual who would tolerate a daytime man that he described as having "plenty of attitude" and shows an open dislike toward vampires. Tulsa World.
