5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating, 14 May 2011
This review is from: Dead Reckoning: A True Blood Novel (Hardcover)
Another captivating and entertaining instalment in the Sookie Stackhouse story.
I read the first true blood novel last year,so unlike origional fans of the books who have had to wait a whole year for each new instalment, I have been able to race though the whole series no sooner finishing one book before starting the next,consequently I tend to regard them as one long book. Whilst some fans complain about not much happening in certain books I have rather enjoyed the opportunity to catch my breath and let Sookie recover before her next fight /serious injury /heartach/bereavement ect.
I can understand why in this book some people are not all together happy with how the story develops, particularly regarding Eric. I fully admit to being an Eric fan and the 'will they wont they' element was a fascinating component of the early books. But now they are an item I am honest enough to admit that the relationship will not work unless one or other of them changes; either Sookie becomes a vampire or Eric gives up the power and the glory to become an 'ordinary'vampire, but in truth neither option seems in charecter or guarantees happiness. People who want a 'girl gets the vampire and lives happily ever after' story should stick to Stephanie Meyers excellent but very different Twilight series.
In reality I think the best chance of happiness for Sookie would be to end up with her best friend Sam! she would get to stay in the home she loves, she would get to help Sam in the bar she loves, she would be with a man who genuinely seems to care and she could even have a few telapathic kids if she wished. But who knows this is Ms Harris's world and she constantly amazes me with each new development in it's story. People who don't like its direction should jump ship, whilst the rest of us hang on to the life jackets and enjoy the trip
