I have to admit I bought this elsewhere for a MAJOR bargain price! And I had kinda read the first couple of books before. But this time I was semi comparing it to the series which had been on the TV.

If you're looking at this, you pretty much know it's about Sookie Stackhouse, a young telepath who falls in love with a vampire. And that might be all that you know. But that's not all that's here. You have vampires - your bog standard scary ones - Bill, the studious first love of Sookie's life; Eric - the Viking Vampire that sneaks in under your radar, turns you on simply because he is so good at being bad, then sneakily makes you care; Pam - the Yummy Mummy looking vampire who has a total ruthless streak; and of course, the vampire that everyone recognises when they see him around, but who answers to the name of Bubba!!

But you get more than that. You get witches, Wiccans, werewolves, shifters, man-woman dynamics, politics, good old southern ways, infighting, inbreeding, royalty, fairies - these books have SO much in them, you don't get a chance to get bored. The men are absolutely gorgeous sounding - if they look that good in season 2, the series is going to have a HUGE female following, bigger than it has at the moment.

All told from Sookie's POV, these books start off slow and meandering, until you realise that you've read three of them on your day off because as soon as you finish one you just want to find out what happens next. And each book wraps some things up without being HEA - Sookie's life isn't simple and easy anymore, and the books don't try to pretend they are. There is some gore, much less sex than you might expect, complicated group dynamics, and a satisfying read. And it's nice that they have been repackaged so they match the TV series.

I stumbled on to the Sookie Stakhouse series and read all 9 books in quick succession. I fell in love with the story and the characters. The first few books are the best and about 4/5 books in the plot seems to lull, but don't let that put you off as it does pick up again.

The stories of the characters are enjoyable and I found them really easy to read and VERY hard to put down. They don't compare to the TV series. As always in the transfer over to screen they miss a lot out and seemed to have dragged the first book out far too long. A lot happens in the first novel and in quick succession.

Very worth a read and a brilliant series to invest in, as very easy to pick up and read again.

I received this boxset for Christmas of my husband after we both LOVED the TV series.
The differences between the books and the TV series are very different, the books are souly from Sookie's perspective. Whereas the TV series isn't.
When I read the first book I wasn't too impressed, (I think I was comparing to too much to the TV series) but I decided to give the books a chance, as I had 7 more books to read.
Anyways, long story short, I'm on the 6th book and cannot put them down! I'm constantly blabbing to my husband the latest goings on in Bon Temp!

What a fun, and exciting series, and I'm looking forward to more!!

I watch and love True Blood on TV and from there I learnt it was based (albeit loosely) on a Sookie Stackhouse book collection. I borrowed the first book and loved it and so I brought this box set. At the great price I got it for it makes every book very good value for money and I am now on the thrid book in the series. I note however there is a 9th book in the series which isnt included in this set unfortunately but I dont know enough about that book to have a guess at a reason for this omission.

Its so handy though just reaching across for the next book in the series without having to wait to hire it from the library or buy it seperatly.

It also makes for a great gift to give to someone. Im glad I brought it.

Ok.. so as a disappointed review says .. it's like Vampire Porn. And it is in parts. And the tv series actually has a lot more that isn't in the book. More characters, more storyline, more sex and more plot. The books are written from Sookie's perspective so that's going to happen. But.. I still love the books. There is a lot more too them than Mills & Boon books and they are well written.
So as for whether it will put you off the tv series. Well I guess that depends on your reasoning for liking the series in the first place. And if you like reading a broad range of writing styles and stories and like reading books that don't tax you mentally or create in depth characters then you will love these books.

I read a wide range of books and I love both books that are complex and take weeks to read properly and books that are just plain tasty and take you away from reality for awhile. This is the later. And as the books go on (I'm on no.3) they just get tastier and tastier. I can't wait to see what Alan Ball does with the rest!!!! Even if it is different.

Not being much of a reader (I've probably read 5 books since I left school 10 years ago) and not really knowing what sort of book I would enjoy, I found these books by chance and I absolutely loved reading them. I just could not put the books down and as soon as I'd finished one I just had to start the next straight away. Having not seen the TV series I had no expectations or foregone conclusions about the characters and I enjoyed unravelling their personalities myself through the various plot lines. In addition to the vampires, the introduction of weres, shifters, wiccans, witches and fae each with their own hierarchy structures, rituals and practices added more to the books and kept them interesting. The only disappointments I have are reading some reviews that had said what had happened in the book and that I have to wait for the 10th book to be released.

I am now lost as to what to read next that will be as interesting and enjoyable as this series has been.
