Sink your teeth into the first novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Sookie Stackhouse series--the books that gave life to the Dead and inspired the HBO® original series True Blood. Sookie Stackhouse is just a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Bon Temps, Louisiana. She's quiet, doesn't get out much, and tends to mind her own business--except when it comes to her "disability." Sookie can read minds. And that doesn't make her too dateable. Then along comes Bill Compton. He's tall, dark, handsome--and Sookie can't hear a word he's thinking. He's exactly the type of guy she's been waiting for all her life... But Bill has a disability of his own: he's a vampire with a bad reputation. And when a string of murders hits Bon Temps--along with a gang of truly nasty bloodsuckers looking for Bill--Sookie starts to wonder if having a vampire for a boyfriend is such a bright idea.… (mere)

More of a romance novel than I expected. And I'm about as interested in hetero romance as I am in vampires. But not bad. I'll probably read some of the others. ( )

I totally agree with Meghan that many of the clothing descriptions were unintentionally hilarious. Remember when she put on a yellow skirt and then made sure to put a yellow scrunchie over the rubber band holding her ponytail? That detail really sealed it for me. What's not to love about a telepathic waitress with a vampire boyfriend and 1991 fashion sense?

Actually, I honestly did like Sookie a lot. She was not at all your stereotypical paranormal mystery/romance heroine. First because everyone thinks she's dimwitted, and second because she doesn't take herself too seriously. I wasn't too into Bill though. Sookie's love for him seems based entirely on the fact that he's awesome in bed and she can't read his mind. Bill's love for Sookie is based on...what? Her blood tastes awesome and she's a hot virgin? And they said "I love you" to each other way too much. Show, don't tell, people.

I'm asking a lot of rhetorical questions in this review. Can a book really be called a "mystery" when the revelation of the killer's identity comes out of nowhere? Can it be called a "romance" when the sex scenes are kind of revolting? Aren't love triangles the best?

I did, in fact, enjoy this book. It had funny moments and some Southern charm without laying it on too thick. Fun read. I may continue reading the series. ( )

On the face of it, a story set in an alternative reality where vampires are accepted as a reality, albeit supposedly victims of a virus that made them allergic to sunshine, silver (the author's own addition, I think) and garlic, and where the Japanese have developed a synthetic blood for them to drink so that they can give up preying on the living and integrate into society, should have been really interesting.

It started off quite promisingly, when the first person narrator, 25-year-old Sookie Stackhouse, a bar worker, saves the life of Bill, a vampire newly moved into her town. Bill was born before the American Civil War and has taken possession of an ancestral house near to the one Sookie shares with her grandmother, now that vampires have legal and civil rights. Soon after, Bill is able to return the favour and the two fall in love, at least as much as a vampire and human find this possible.

Against this background, Sookie is trying to solve a series of murders because she is a telepath who has spent her whole life trying to block out the thoughts of others, but now with Bill's encouragement begins to develop her gift. And she eventually realises, without total enthusiasm, that it makes her useful to other vampires. Bill is not the most powerful in the area, and owes allegiance to Erik, who originated in Viking times.

As if the existence of vampires isn't enough, the author soon introduces the existence of shapeshifters. I liked her shapeshifter minor character and one or two other bit players, but Sookie herself isn't that interesting. We learn constantly about the clothes she dresses in, and how she spends time at home shaving her legs etc, but apart from her telepathy there isn't much to her. Gradually, due to the ingestion of vampire blood, she begins to become more than human, becoming stronger and able to heal better, but these aren't traits that make her more sympathetic to the reader. Similarly Bill is very bland and one dimensional. The only slightly interesting vampire is Erik.

Another problem I had was with the explicit sex scenes which came across as rather gratuitous, and detracted from what was supposed to be a murder mystery with supernatural beings in it. I found all that rather boring. It was also a shame that one minor character was killed off halfway through perhaps because it would have made it more difficult for Sookie to pursue the relationship with Bill if her grandmother was still alive. It seemed that the writer did that to remove an obstacle rather than because it was essential to the plot.

All in all, I would rate this as an OK 2 star read. ( )
