3.0 su 5 stelle uninspiring 5 maggio 2011
Di J. Weber - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I have read all Ms. Harris's books and thought the creation of Sookie was genius! What a character Sookie is - meant literally and figuratively, and what a cast of characters Ms. Harris conjured. I'm not sure what happened but the last 3 books have lost that feeling. In this latest installment I felt quite a bit of the story was repetitive. We already knew from the last book that Sookie's Grandmother had her two children with a fairy. SPOLIER!! Why the drama with the letter? Sookie already knew. A fae object was found - OK, set up for the next books, as nothing was done with it in this story. There's a big secrete that Erik and Pam won't tell Sookie, Pam wants to but Erik chokes her to keep her from talking - but eventually Sookie does realize what is at stake and Erik tells her the reason. SPOLIER** I don't get it - if Laurana's death freed Bill from her why doesn't the same hold true for Erik? I don't buy the reasoning behind the dilemma at all. And there's something about the characters or the writing that just feels rote. There's alot of conversations with Bill and Erik that we've read before. I felt that some characters were included as an afterthought - Jason only appears when he passes her on the road! So? Who cares? Why was that necessary to put in? The scene with Alcide was so off, I sometimes wondered who was writing the story. Where's Arlene? Is she in jail? Dead Reckoning is not that capitivating, as the earlier stories were, where you couldn't wait to turn the page. As an indication, the earlier books had hundreds of reviews in the first couple of days - today there aren't even 40 yet. I think readers/fans don't feel the same rush to get the book to find out what happened. Personally I couldn't wait, I had hoped the dry spell of rather dull stories would end, but it didn't. I don't think I will purchase the next book - just wait for the last one perhaps. I gave the review 3 stars because I have so enjoyed the authors previous works and felt guilty only giving 2 stars. I just wish that the zest and comical bickering would return.

3.0 su 5 stelle I'll finish the series... 4 maggio 2011
Di jehren - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
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.
And now, MAJOR SPOILERS:
***SPOILERS***
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).

3.0 su 5 stelle Mournful and Disjointed 5 maggio 2011
Di netherfield - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
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.

2.0 su 5 stelle I use to LOVE these books 5 maggio 2011
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I'm not sure if these last few books are tainted by True Blood or if Charlaine is just tired of writing about Sookie, but its so disappointing! Her characters no matter big or small use to have depth and personality. Her work was original and interesting, now its just boring and full of filler pages like the attic. The only sweet part was the love that is still between Eric and Sookie. Their characters use to bicker and it was so funny because they were sarcastic and loving at the same time, now they're sad and depressing. I really wanted them to end up together and If that wasn't the end goal for them she should have ended it a while ago. She's lost her "spark" for caring for her characters. She should have quit and came back when the story was ready to continue, not force all it out to make money. So many people were disappointed with the last few books......she really should have took that into consideration. I use to read the books without pause the minute I bought them. Not anymore. I still love the first books but I'm not to optimistic about loving the ending to this story. That's the horrible part because of all the books I've read (and I've read a lot), Sookie was my favorite character. And I'm not a huge fantasy fan, but they were written so wonderfully I couldn't put them down. Now I have nothing intriguing to read!

1.0 su 5 stelle A little exhausting, yet not much happens 29 giugno 2011
Di Jeffrey Scott - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I felt much the same way, but to a lesser extent, after reading the last book in the series. I loved the earlier books in the series, and in each of the early books, there was a clear, cohesive conflict that dominated that particular book, and was resolved by the end. In Dead to the World (one of my favorites of the series), we saw the whole conflict with the witches play out. By the end of that book, the witches had been defeated in a thrilling battle, and I was left feeling satisfied. There were of course minor plot lines left up in the air (Sookie's romantic future, given the nature of her relationship with Eric during the course of the book, for example) which made me excited to read the next book, but there was nothing so huge left unresolved that I felt slighted. This book (as well as the last one), I can't really pick out any major conflict that the books deals with, and nothing is resolved by the end. I honestly can't even tell you what this one is about. Sookie cleans out her attic. She and Dermot grow closer. She and Eric are no longer vampire-married. That's about it. There's no story that unifies this book. There's just a bunch of minor, disconnected events, which makes it a rather boring yet frustrating read.

Also, how dense does Harris think we all are? Like others said, I'm a little insulted. Nobody picks up the 11th book in a series and just reads it cold, with no background or previous knowledge (and if they did, they shouldn't), so there's no need to write like your readers are hearing about these characters for the first time in the 11th book of the series. I am so sick of reading the same things over and over in each book. By this point, we all know about fairies' allergies to iron and lemons. We all know Dermot looks a heck of a lot like Jason, and we all remember the troubles this previously caused. And for pete's sake, we certainly all know the whole store behind Elvis becoming a vampire... yet in every single book, Harris recounts all of this to us in vivid detail, as though this is certainly the first time we are hearing about any of it. I'm not exaggerating when I say that half of the material that makes up this book is stuff I've already read before. Enough is enough.

Also, as others have mentioned, there are some pretty fierce continuity problems that make this book really difficult to enjoy, but that has been thoroughly discussed I believe.

The only reason I keep reading these books is because I feel like I'm in too deep now, and I can't just stop. I've heard from others that Harris is contracted for 13 books in this series, and I've also heard that she herself is ready to finish the series, so hopefully the next one will be the last one. I've thoroughly enjoyed this series, but if Harris hasn't got her heart in this project any longer (and I think it's obvious that she does not, based upon the declining quality of her work in recent years), then I wish she would quit writing these and just leave us with our fond memories.
