I guess this is what you get when you get too big for your boots!

Well where do I start really. This book was poorer than Dead in the family & I thought that wasn't possible. Having come to the sookie books somewhat late I have had the chance to read them virtually one after the other and I can pinpoint the timeframe Trueblood had been commissioned because suddenly CH style of writing changed. The most jolting thing for me is the slang used in the TV series is suddenly now commonplace in the book. Even Sookie has started to refer to her fellow humans- yeah we know she is 1 8th fae- as breathers WTF?? and words from 18th century french bayou slang is a language that has suddenly become popular in Sookie world. If this book was a supernatural creature I am afraid it would be a brain dead lumbering Zombie!
