If you are a fan of the Sookie novels then you will love this companion! At the start there is a brand-new Sookie story in which she accompanies Sam to his sisters wedding. There is detailed summaries of each novel right up to Dead Reckoning, which might be a little bit boring for some people but personally for me it was a great reminder of everything that's gone on in the novels, as its so long from I've read them all. There is also a fans questions and answers from Alan Ball. Sookie's family tree is also in there. Information on Vampires, fairie factions and the two natured. lots of Favourite Bon Temps recipes including the famous Caroline Holliday Bellefleur's chocolate cake. And lots more.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this companion. a must read for fans everywhere. :)

Went out first thing and got this from Waterstones yesterday and am not disappointed at all. Perfect for all fans of the brilliant Charlaine Harris and the universe she has created in Bon Temps. People who love True Blood will also enjoy this and there are stories I haven't read before too. LOVE IT!!! Perfect Christmas present and a must have for all fans new and old alike.

I simply love the series and thought this might give me an insight into the way it was created and where things are going ( bill, bill, bill please charlaine let it be bill!!) - what really really disappointed me was that maybe 1/3 of it was taken up with summaries of the series - I've READ the books - i don't need or want a summary!! Thats the main reason for the low star rating, just a waste on me. The character summaries were intesting but having read the series twice now ( and only found it in june...) i've pretty much worked how who's who although some did give an insight into motivation of the character and reasons for their actions. If i'd bought this before reading the books maybe i'd have got more out of this section. I'm not into quizzes at all so that section was wasted on me - i simply skipped past it, the recipies were interesting but as an extra only - they add nothing integral to the books, for instance i've always wondered what hush puppies were, here in uk they're a brand of shoe! I really liked the emails between bill and eric - gave an insight ionto their relationship and think more like that would have been great, I loved the short story about sams brothers wedding - i'd like to read the other short stories but for some reason they're not available on kindle :( and i'm not a short story fan but these seem more "novella" style so i'd enjoy them.
altogtherI would have liked more original material included for the price - 8.99 for this is way overpriced. If I hadn't expected to get more original info i'd never have bought it - now i've read it and thats that - its not like the series which i'll read and re read. and am waiting very impatiently for the next book ....just to reiterate - bill for sookie, bill for sookie.

If you're a fan of True Blood or the original Sookie novels, then this is a wonderful companion for you as it not only contains some facts to do with the setting but also includes essentials like recipes used by characters. It's quirky, it brings the dark world closer to our own and with wonderful additions from missing pieces within the stories (such as Eric and Bill phone conversations) as well as giving northern Louisiana a deeper flavour for the readers imagination

Finally add to this maps, Sookie's family tree and of course a whole host of other factoids as well as background material which overall will be a well thumbed through addition to any fans collection. A wonderful gift at any time of year.

I thought there would be more than two short stories in this and lots of it is about Charlaine Harris, not Sookie Stackhouse. Just not as good as I had hoped.

As a MAJOR Sookie fan, this book was perfect for me. The summary of each individual book was really helpful and a great way to remind myself of everything that has happened so far before the new book comes out in may! I also enjoyed the short story and will definitely be trying out some of the recipes.

I'm a massive True Blood / Sookie fan and couldn't wait to get my hands on this book however I was disappointed with the content. There are a couple of short stories the rest of the book is made up of the timeline of the True Blood books going over events that we have already read about. It also contains recipes!? And an overview of all the characters!? Would make an OK gift but as I said before I don't rate the content.
