    " I love this series!!! I have read most of the it over the years, but the narration really What a great way to feel like you're right there in the "Fang" 0f things!! This author is excellent in making you believe vampires and other things that go bump in the night could truly be real!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 cyrules | 6/1/2016

    " I had watched True Blood-the book is somewhat different from the tv show. Person doing the reading did an excellent job with the voices and tone-she is very easy to listen to and understand. It is 9 hours so excellent book to listen to while driving or going for a walk. Hope to listen to complete series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn Bird | 2/18/2014

    " I listened to this as an audio book in essentially 2 sittings. While it reminded me a lot of Twilight- mind reading, vampires, shape shifters, evil vamps vs good vamps, ends at the hospital, etc., Charlaine Harris is clearly a more skilled writer, and her characters have depth and unique voices. Johanna Parker is a delightful narrator. I look forward to reading/listening to many more books in the Stookie Stackhouse series. "

    " I read this on vacation and it was a light, fluffy read that I devoured since it required little or no brain processing. this isn't a book I'd read normally but it's perfect beach reads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George Locke | 12/15/2013

    " Mediocre start to a fantastic series. Strong characterization but the mystery isn't very gripping. "

    " Liked this book, though tired of the TV show "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leiah | 11/17/2013

    " I saw True Blood a few years ago, and reading this brought all those memories back. The way Sookie acts is weird sometimes, but she was weird in the TV series, too. An easy, fun read. I'll definitely be looking into the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Csikos | 11/8/2013

    " It started out pretty good, and got better. I don't know if I'll read more of the series, but this first one makes me think well of the writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Kohlhof | 11/4/2013

    " I've avoided this series of books like the plague because I enjoyed the TV show so much, but I'm really glad I read it! It was just some nice effortless reading that gave me a break from all of the academic stuff I have to read. I'll definitely carry on with the rest of the series! "

    " Guilty pleasure, quick, light read. Was I embarrassed to be seen reading this series? Yes. But, so many people came up to talk to me about the books that I figured there were a ton of us in the same boat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley Crimmins | 4/18/2010

    " Great introductory book into the many interesting stories of So okie Stackhouse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kali | 11/29/2009

    " Fun. A bit trashy in bits, but a total page-turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 10/18/2009

    " I was very entertained by this book, and read it quickly. I like Sookie's character because she seems relatable. I don't understand her on again, off again with Bill; it makes her seem weaker than she could be. Since I have all 8 books on my kindle, I'll move on to the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 1/31/2009

    " This book was an entertaining, eye candy read. I did like that the vampires mixed between the good and bad of mortality. It reminded me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I would be entertained by the others in the series I think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 8/1/2008

    " I truly love a good vampire series and Dead Until Dark did not disappoint. Was fast paced and funny. The characters grow as the story developes leaving me to look forward to the sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 10/1/2007

    " This is a fun, entertaining series. The characters are snappy; the dialogue is witty; and everything supernatural you've read about (and haven't read about) is in this series. This first book is a great introduction into an alternate reality while providing an escape from this one. "
