not my favourite

I love Sookie Stackhouse books, and am currently working my way through the series. However, Dead As A Doornail just didn't do it for me. I was surprised to see that people think it's the best book yet!
I guessed almost straight away who was snuffing out the werewolves, the clues and dialogue between the murderer and Sookie made it pretty obvious. As for who was trying to get Sookie, well that was pretty clear too once the murderer said something pretty significant to Sookie and Charlaine Harris made a point of emphasising it. So once I worked it all out, it put a bit of a downer on the rest of the book which seemed to drag on and on... and on.
I like the bits of the books where Sookie builds up relationships with people but there's none of that here. Honestly, I'm so surprised no one else agrees with me!
