I'll finish the series... 4 maggio 2011
Di jehren - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
Geez, where do I start? I know I'll finish the series, but like other reviewers, I'm disappointed with the unnecessary explanations that ultimately conflict with the timeline. There were also a couple of incongruous actions of the characters- leading one to believe that C.H. is going to arrive at her predetermined resolution, no matter how inelegant or contrived.
I really wish C.H. had done something like Orson Scott Card. During his 8 book series, he recruited a handful of avid fans to comb over drafts of upcoming books for plot holes.
Taken as a stand alone book, I really enjoyed it. But it isn't a stand alone, and we all know these characters, so when they do out of character things or we find out they've been doing things that don't fit the timeline... the magic is lost.
Like other reviewers have pointed out, we find out that Niall and Eric have been in contact all along... and that just isn't possible. Goes against the timeline. I guess we're meant to understand (among other reasons, I'm sure) that Eric has had motives all along and is no better than Bill. I'm okay with C.H. tearing down some of what we know about Eric if that's the way she wants to go, but at least let it make sense.
Then there is Eric tearing into her neck after the major fight scene. What? Now Eric is manhandling Sookie? Can that be explained away by the bond break? Or maybe the heat of the moment? No, I just don't buy it. Eric has almost always worn kid gloves when it comes to Sookie. Yes, he has put her in danger before, but that's the world he lives in. Yes, they've had rough sex, but that has always been consensual and doesn't count. And yes, he has deceived her, which is wrong, but it has never been to injure her. If Eric isn't "the one," so be it. There are plenty of reasons for the Sookie/Eric relationship to fall apart, but revising his character, turning him into something readers don't recognize isn't necessary.
Then there's the betrothal to the Queen of Oklahoma that he can't undo. I'd be okay with this if it weren't for all the other slams against Eric, inciting us to believe that Eric will never be honest with Sookie and that until now, we haven't seen his true colors. This betrothal reeks of "it can never be," bc Eric will never put Sookie first, just like everyone else (except maybe Sam, of course). Does that mean that everything we've learned about these characters up til now has been wrong?
I will be sorry if C.H.'s ultimate message suggests that one should go with the easy, safe choice even if there isn't that attraction- the lesson being: this (drama, heartache, etc.)is what happens when you DON'T settle. (And btw, I like Sam).

Continuity Gets in the Way of a Good Read 4 maggio 2011
Di H. Edwards - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
I won't offer a synopsis of the book since others have done so. This book is much better than the previous two or three books; however, the continuity problems get in the way of really enjoying the book. At one point, I put it down and was disgusted with myself when I picked the book back up. If Charlaine Harris does not respect her audience and reread her own books before she writes a new one, why should I keep reading her books as she changes events that could not have possibly happened the way she says (in the most recent books) it happened?

One of the main issues with the continuity problems is the enlightening details regarding past events. If you have not read the book yet, I suggest you stop reading now because there will be spoilers. When Sookie is finally able to talk to Claude and Dermot, they tell her that Eric and Niall had had business dealings for quite some time and that Eric had kept Niall informed about Sookie and her goings on. First, Niall learns from Eric Sookie's special talent. Secondly, Eric tells Niall that Sookie is "withering," and Niall sends Claudine to help her. As for the first issue: Eric did not learn that Sookie was part fae until book 7, "All Together Dead." He was genuinely surprised when he found out. Granted, he may have had business dealings with Niall before learning of Sookie's heritage, but why would he talk about Sookie to Niall before he learned that she was part fairy? The second issue cannot be so easily disregarded. Eric tells Niall that Sookie is not doing well, and Niall sends Claudine. Claudine does not show up until book 4, "Dead to the World." Eric did not know who he was in that book; how in the world would he know who Sookie was (or Niall, for that matter) to tell Niall that Sookie was "withering"? Besides that, he shouldn't have even known that she was part fae at that point. I have overlooked many of the continuity problems in Ms. Harris' books, but this insults my intelligence. She obviously does not care enough about this series or her readers to do some research (or even remember what she had previously written) for the books she writes. She is changing her own history. Reviewers from other books of hers in this series have suggested that she is focused on the money, and I now agree. I won't even go into the re-telling of Terry Bellefleur and his relationship with Eric. It was completely pointless. (I also have to say shame on the people who edit her book: there are missing periods and verb tenses constantly shift.)

Outside of continuity problems, I still could not completely enjoy this book. The breaking of the blood bond is anti-climatic, and it is obvious that Eric is being phased out, and Sam phased in (I won't even talk about Bill-he is obviously a red herring to create conflict). I understand that she is trying to set up the ending of the series and needs to start putting Sookie's permanent love interest in the forefront, but does she have to be so obvious about it? Can't she use some literary techniques that add some mystery to it? Apparently not. I have heard that Ms. Harris is ready to move on and end the series. I personally think it is a good decision. There is no more heart or magic to this series.

I know that there will be some people unhappy about my comments and, to be honest, I am not happy about having them. I loved this series up until the 7th book, but it has gone downhill since then. I do understand that there is only so much that can be done in a series this long. However, Ms. Harris signed a contract for 13 books yearly, and so if she could not write them with heart, she should have given up a few books ago and returned some of the publisher's money. At this point, it feels like money is all she cares about. I understand that she is tired of Sookie, but she should at least appreciate the people who helped buy her house and put her kids through college--the reader.

Mournful and Disjointed 5 maggio 2011
Di netherfield - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I am truly disappointed in this entry in the Sookie Stackhouse collection. One major plot point is answered, but in an unsatisfactory way. The tone of the book was morose. Sookie is practically comatose in her behavior and attitude, not the firecracker we've come to know and love. The author seems to be showing that she is resigned to being a doormat for other "supes"; but she walks through this book with little emotion, even when big things happen.

For some reason, the same person keeps on trying to **Spoiler Alert** kill her in a half dozen ways throughout the book. This does not forward the story at all. Gang of thugs here, gang of thugs there, even one of her multiple escapes which is supposed to be exciting is very disjointed and bizarre. Charlaine Harris's usual style is to have a one or possibly two major incidents when someone is out to get Sookie with minor incidents to back up and question motives. This one is very overt and feels like the author made no attempt to integrate these incidents into what was going on. We know the attacker, we know what and why they are doing it, where is the mystery?

I was astounded that a major, major thing between Sookie and Eric is treated as an afterthought. Something that would, in the other books, have created all kinds of feelings and expression fall flat at a pancake. We've been building it up about for 10 books, but oh well, let's talk about it lamely over a coke and a True Blood and be interrupted within a few lines. They could have been discussing whose turn it was to take out the garbage. **Spolier Alert End**

I couldn't find one happy moment in this book. Not one. Sad and dreary is the order of the day.

Who wrote this book? 10 maggio 2011
Di puffcatty - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
Because it surely seems like Ms Harris took a vacation. While one of the main reasons I love this series so much is the frank, pointedly simple but poignant writing style of Charlaine Harris, it was jut not there in this book. The writing style is completely different, our sweet but strong Southern Christian Belle suddenly became a wine swilling, trucker mouthed, fluff ball more concerned about her hair and her clothes then she is her moral values. She used to care about killing people. She used to mourn killing people. At one point she puts Kill Victor on her To do list. She now looks forward to it with little regret. Eric, where was Eric?? He actually stoops so low as to fist fight with his beloved and most devoted child, Pam, and destroys Sookies kitchen. THEN shows up with a toaster as repayment? UGH, the real Eric would never have hit Pam, ever, or vice versa. And Bill, southern gentleman Bill actually tells Sookie her breasts should have won the Miss America Tit Competition. Seriously? Where is this coming from? Alcide just popping up in Sookies bed thinking she was going to sleep with him? He just laughs, "yeah that was stupid of me" and leaves. This is just True Blood Raunch, and not in a good way. I felt like I was reading a screenplay version of a True Blood script. Especially with all the first name talk. Everything was Sookie this, Sam that, Eric this, Pam that. You'd think when only 2 people are conversing, that there would be no need to mention the name of the person they are addressing. Right?

I think this book and the last book were a total screw you to Alan Ball and True Blood. I think the plot twists on the TV show are just too much, too convoluted and stray too far from the world we Sookie readers love. The Appius, the maker, story line of Dead in the Family and the origins of Sookies Telepathy among other things in this book are a BIG FU to the True Blood establishment. During the TV show Pam made a comment in one of the seasons...."are you getting what I am putting down." I totally remember that line form the show because I could not believe it had been written for Pam, prim, proper <and British> kick butt and ask questions later Pam. Well, much to my chagrin, there is was in this book, Pam actually saying those very words. I knew something was amiss. I had to put the book down and walk away for a while so that I could view it with the eyes of someone who just might be pissed off at what other writers are doing to her beloved characters.

There are so many errors in this book, some major storyline errors carried on from past books but even within the book itself. We learn in the beginning of this book that saying Thank you to a fairy is a HUGE no-no. Thank you Mercy Thompson. Then at the end of this book when Bellanos, clearly one of the fae, re-wards her home, she thanks him, not one but twice. WTH? Then the obvious overlook of Eric's knowledge of Sookies fae heritage. The trite letter from Gran neatly wrapping up many of Sookies questions about how or why her grandmother strayed. Erics obvious carless attitude about the sex between Appius and his "brother" in this book when last book he was VERY concerned about sex with the maker, so much that it was stressing his bond with Sookie, his worry that Appius would request it from him as well. But this book his attitude is yeah it's maker sex, it's bound to happen. It's insulting, truly insulting.

I have read each of these books at least 10 times and Sookie has been one of my favorite series characters but this book was just plain terrible. I struggled to finish it. At times I was screaming at my husband about the discrepencies, the foul language, the lack of love, the terrible writing. It's like she just did not care about this book, at all. I felt like it was a season of True Blood Lite. Please, Ms Harris, don't do this to the last 2 books. We who read your work know that the show stinks, it's a parody of the original. It's OK. We want the REAL Sookie to stand up and take her bow, not go out like this.

Just rip off the band-aid 3 maggio 2011
Di Jen (Red Hot Books) - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
Have you ever noticed that every time an enemy of Sookie Stackhouse bites the dust, another is waiting in the wings to make her life miserable? If you think about it, our girl has got a lot of carnage in her wake: from Lorena... to the vamp who killed Hadley... on to Andre and Debbie and Appius Livius. But you cut off the head of one beast and another grows in its place. Our beast du jour for Dead Reckoning is our old pal Victor. He is making life more and more miserable for Eric, and he's an ever-present threat to Sookie.

And he's not the only one. Someone has firebombed Merlotte's; some drugged out thugs are sent to snatch Sookie; and that's just the beginning! Sookie has to figure out who is targeting her, while helping Eric come up with a plan to get out from under Victor.

Emotions are running high. There's a schism between Eric and Pam, and Sookie knows she has something to do with it. (The basis of their discord, when it's finally revealed, is real kick to the gut!) At the same time, Pam is trying to gain permission to create her first vampire child. And there are major developments in the blood-bond issue between Eric and Sookie.

Sookie is coming to see how much she has changed since the supes have come into her life. Much of what she's done has been necessary to her own survival, but she's not sure she likes who she's become. Things are strained between her and Eric. I've been Team-Eric for as long as I can remember, but the cracks are forming. That's an understatement, really. We see what can easily be the mechanism to separate them once and for all. But things are left unresolved. I just wish Harris would just rip the band-aid off already. I've softened towards Bill, though I can't see the two of them ever reconciling --and we even have a surprise appearance from another potential suitor. But when all is said and done, I feel like we're just getting more groundwork laid for Sam as an eventual HEA. Sure, he's got a girlfriend here, but he is now firmly ensconced as Sookie's best friend. I feel like it's just a hop, skip and jump from becoming something more.

I can't wrap up without acknowledging that Sookie makes some great new discoveries about her family history. And we finally know where her telepathy comes from. (A fun surprise, I thought.) We have resolution on the main story arc, but the relationship issues are left hanging in a most frustrating way. I just didn't feel like the book was as cohesive as some of the ones that came before it. The best books in the series were obvious in what they were about: whether it was the vampire summit, the evil witches or what-have-you. The weaker ones tend to meander from event to event, or perhaps more accurately... from disaster to disaster, in Sookie's life. Almost 4 stars.
