Another one bites the dust...,
This review is from: Dead As A Doornail: 5 (Sookie Stackhouse series) (Paperback)
How can we begin to describe this series of books? Vampire stories have rocked my world since I was 12 years old and first saw "Bram Stoker's Dracula" on the big screen. Since then, I've been a steady consumer of books, movies and tv series of the genre, always searching for the "next IT thing" for me.
I've read all Stephenie Meyer's, Anne Rice and others, but I have to say that Charlaine mixes up a combo that I find particularly good: the premise is indeed the vampire genre, but we end up more wrapped up with Sookie - and all her single-attractive-working-girl dramas- than with the vampires, wolves, fairies and other surreal humans in the story. It's funny, enjoyable and delivers a good balance - it feels "real" - as far as real can get with all these supernatural creatures.
So cudos to Charlaine for delivering another great story!
