    • DNF 47%I’m done with this series. The first book was weird enough as it is, but this one is just too much for me. Nothing makes sense and at 47%, I still haven’t found a plot. Here’s a list of things I have a problem with:1. This series is weird.2. Everyone treats Sookie as if she is Bill’s possession. Even worse: a pet.3. Bill goes along with it.4. So does Sookie.5. Bill is one of the worst boyfriends I have ever met. He is boring, possessive and never fails to get Sookie into trouble. [...]

    • It was extremely hard thinking of Eric Northman, 6'4", blonde with blue eyes, need I mention a super gorgeous hunk, a vampire, and Sheriff of Louisiana Area 5, an entrepreneur (owner of bar Fangtasia) in a PINK LYCRA especially when I pictured him as Alexander Skarsgård who looks like this But imagining the bulge his would form, Eric Northman in a pink lycra doesn't seem like a bad idea. I think I'm pro pink lycras. Especially if someone this hot would wear them. I even think I should advocate [...]

      2.5 StarsSookie fucking Stackhouse!!I’ll let you know a little secret, ladies: No matter how great with a capital "G" your boobs are, you will never attract every man and woman who ever meets you UNLESS you are Sookie fucking Stackhouse!! If you are Sookie fucking Stackhouse no one, and I mean NO ONE, will be able to resist you *eyeroll*Easily my least favourite part of this story is the main character, I just cannot relate to Sookie at all. She bothers me. And whilst an element of that is sim [...]

    • *** 3.44 ***A buddy read with the folks at FBR! There is a vampire thing going on :)Let's start with the obvious - these books are not written with the aim to turn into classics one day, nor are they pretentious or climbing the genre's most memorable ladder to fame. They do not claim literary breakthroughs nor are they intended as a learning tool of how to make it in life. They are what they are - a silly, at times humorous and always just at the edge of ridiculous portrayal of a hick Southern s [...]

    • Vampire Bill is a dud. But otherwise I really enjoyed this book, it was better than the first. I was dying laughing during most of the orgy scenewho knew Eric was so funny? Perfect vacation reading. Added bonus, I read this on the plane last night from Minneapolis to the Dallas/Fort Worth airport. Very appropriate. :)

    • Despite having a solid story that ends with a massacre, a theme that explores radical groups and the evil of humanity (not of the monsters) there are still 100 pages left to talk about the new types of myths that are roaming the earth Sookie's world is suddenly getting stuffy, but with each new development, the reader understands that the books will take liberties that will truly surprise. The adventures are becoming less structured episodic. I am pretty excited to continue reading about this he [...]

    • Another wonderful Sookie Stackhouse outing, fast-paced and never flagging. This one sees Sookie and Bill sent by Eric to Dallas because he's "rented" her out to the nest leader there, Stan, so she can use her telepathic gift to find out what happened to a missing vampire. This leads to the Fellowship, a truly scary psuedo-Christian cult that's very anti-vampire. There's also a scary Maenad hanging around the woods at home, demanding tribute, and poor Lafayette, the flamboyantly gay cook from the [...]

    • Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsMost people who have read this series, at the very least, like portions of it.They like the first 3 or 4 installments, but then they get bored, or after the 3rd or 4th book, the series really started picking up for them.I’m weird, I guess. I pretty much liked the entire series right up until the end. Sure, how much I liked each book varied—for example, except for the last book, this one is my LEAST favorite, but that’s not uncommon, what with this being book 2 and a [...]

    • Perseverance pays off, especially when reading this series. After I completed Dead Until Dark, I was hesitant to continue on with the second installment. However, I had made a promise to a friend to stick it out, and I had already purchased the book, so I got comfortable and braced myself for the impending doom. At first, my fears were realized. Sookie was still dingy, annoying, and cried at least four times in the first 30 pages. My outlook was grim, but I prevailed on in hopes that the small g [...]

    • 2.5 starsWHY WHY WHY did I feel the need to buy this entire series of books? Now I have to read all of them, and this is only book 2. And honestly, I read this 8 months ago and cannot remember much about it at all. But since I cannot leave books unreviewed (any time I have a book with unreviewed space, it glares at me and glares at me until I cave), I need to figure out how to review this thing. So here goes:TRUTHS ABOUT LIVING DEAD IN DALLASTruth #1: Dead Until Dark is better.I did not love Har [...]

    • Equally as terrible as the first book, if not worse. Sookie continues to have as little personality as previously, alternating between lusting cheaply after anyone male who crosses her path, indulging herself in weeping sessions over the pain of her unasked- for super-abilities and talking about clothes. Luckily her vampire boyfriend, despite being 150+ years old, is dumbstruck by the sight of a blonde in a thong and therefore continues to have regular unpleasant sex with her, whilst pimping her [...]

    • Qué voy a decir, salvo que me ha gustado? Y, aunque me ha parecido que no estaba al nivel del primero, me ha conquistado! A por el tercero!!!

    • These books are strange. Unique. Whenever I thought of urban fantasy before reading this series, I thought of cities and, well, urban life that would include crazy magical creatures. This is the only series I have seen that is set in the South, and it is a lot of fun. The "Southiness" of it cracks me up because I have lived in Texas for the past 18 years and can appreciate the references.Here are some of my favorite Southernisms:The expressions. Southerners are super expressive in their language [...]

    • The second installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series, and a bit of a struggle for the author, I think, to figure out exactly which way she was headed with the series. Sookie and Bill start to have a few more misunderstandings and a major row and have to decide whether they will continue their relationship. It’s unclear to me whether vampires in this series have emotions or are just possessive—maybe book 3 will clear that up for me. The fact that she is “loaned out” to the Dallas vampir [...]

    • "Your lips are bloody." He seized my face in both hands and kissed me.It's hard not to respond when a master of the art of kissing is laying one on you.The best part of this book is every scene Eric Northman is in. While this one was definitely better than the first book, it wasn't as good as it was the first few times I read it. Definitely not a 5-star book, as I originally rated it.This one has two main plots which are separate from each other: the maenad coming to Bon Temps and the encounter [...]

    • Quick thoughts here, since I probably won't bother to do a full review. I liked this better than the first. It was another quick read. There was less slow, Southern charm and humor, less of a chick-lit focus on hair and clothes and working in the bar (although that's still in there). Instead, there are two mysteries in two locations, and we get more exposure to the worlds of vampires and shape-shifters, and I finally got to know what the fuss about Eric is all about - or at least I'm starting to [...]

    • Opening Line: Andy Bellefleur was drunk as a skunk."This was another super entertaining read; combining fantasy, action, romance and mystery that you’ll find difficult to put down. With book #2 we return to small town Louisiana and telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who's still slinging beers for shapeshifter Sam and spending time with boyfriend Bill the vampire. Their relationship continues to evolve with anger and jealousies surfacing here, and even though for the most part Bill is still [...]

    • It was a fast, engaging read. Different, in details, from the series, but the feel is the same. It's an interesting world that Harris has created. She brings up some well thought out points about how a vampire would differ from a normal human. It's certainly not high literature, but an awful lot of fun.

    • "What does true madness care about discovery?"The two main plots in Living Dead in Dallas are: A) The ruthless Maenad, Callisto, who comes to visit Bon Temps accompanied by her feral razorback pig companion, demanding tribute. B) A member of the Dallas vampire nest has been taken by an anti-vampire organization, The Fellowship of the Sun, with the help of a very old and very suicidal vampire, Godfrey (Godric). This book begins with Sookie discovering a dead body in Sheriff Andy Bellefleur's vehi [...]

    • Now I've seen the show and I never knew it was a whole book series. I know, I know, I'm a terrible person who should never read a book or watch TV ever again. I'm sorry.I actually kind of like the book because I think it was better than the show - but only for that reason.Living Dead in Dallas was a fast read, to me at least, and it definitely kept my interest. I love murder mystery books and I've been on a huge kick with that type of genre lately. Sookie seems okay to me. I don't really like or [...]

    • Sookie Stackhouse is at it again, getting herself tangled up in all sorts of supernatural mischief involving vampires, werewolves, and now a maenad. These books are pure brain candy and a lot of fun with no literary pretensions. I enjoy the unique twists that stem from Harris's choice to set her vampire tales in the South (and not the South of antebellum aristocrats, but borderline trailer-trash South) and have vampires attempting to mainstream into society after being recognized as citizens by [...]

    • I liked the first book in this series, but with this book did I rally start to love the series. The Sookie Stackhouse series is such a fantastic series, at least until the last book that ruined it all. Living Dead in Dallas is a terrific book. I love the humor, the action and of course, Eric Northman. Yup, not a Bill fan at all! ;) I do recommend this series, however, the last book is very, very bad. But until that one is the books great!

    • Once again I don't know WHY I read this book. I was hoping that the Authoress would have expanded her imagination a bit and maybe improved her writing skills, but it didn't happen. I'm two into the series and I'm kinda anxious to see what happens with Erik and Sookie, so I happened to put a hold for the next 3 books at the library. we'll see if I make it that far. These books don't take long to read.The first book was all murder murder murder. blah blah blah they solved the problem and everyone [...]

    • Living Dead in Dallas4 StarsSookie Stackhouse is settling into life as the girlfriend of a vampire when she has a streak of bad luck. First, the body of the short order cook at Merlotte's is found in the local detective's car. Then she is attacked by a deadly creature in the woods, and finally, she must travel to Dallas and use her telepathy to hope the locals find their missing nest mate - that is if she can survive the experience. Note: It is my understanding that 2nd season of True Blood is l [...]

    • Sookie Stackhouse's life is as normal as a telepath can get. She has a vampire boyfriend, a house, a job, and friends. And then one day, the Merlotte's chef, Lafayette, turns up dead in Andy's car. Not to mention, she works for Eric on odd jobs, and he sends her to Dallas to do some investigating for the vampires.Once again, Sookie Stackhouse proves to be a (mostly) light-hearted, carefree paranormal series that is fun and fluffy and doesn't take itself too seriously. No, it isn't perfect. No, i [...]

    • I'm truly not crazy about this series but for some reason I keep finding myself wanting to read them. I blame HBO entirely. I love the show, trashy as it may be. I find Sookie (in the books and show, but more so in the books) to be incredibly corny. She "loves" Bill, but thinks Eric is tasty, and Sam is also kiss-worthy. She's kind of a bimbo, yes?It's very odd for a television show to be better than the book(s) it is based on, but that seems to be the case here. The characters in the show are m [...]

    • Reading this again taught me how much better a writer Charlaine Harris is than the writers of the "True Blood" series on HBO. In the TV series, Bill's sheriff vampire, tall blond Eric, cries out to Sookie that he has two silver bullets in him and they must be removed immediately. They're in his shoulder and chest, and she had no surgical devices or tweezers, so she ends up sucking them out, getting Eric's blood in her mouth (which was his point). One of them is in Eric's breast, near the nipple, [...]

    • Are there any ugly vampires???I do not watch the television show, not even sure if it is still on, so I don't have any preconceived idea of what these characters look like. but I'm just assuming they are all absolutely gorgeous, and then we have Sookie Who apparently no man or woman can resist, really??? And if this is really the case why is she with Bill? He just seems to be extremely boring.Now onto the book, I did enjoy it, I did enjoy the mystery and I find the vampire politics in this seri [...]

    • I managed to actually bloody myself (!) by biting the inside of my cheek to keep from laughing out loud when listening to this one while I was at work:) This was much funnier than the first one and IMO less romantic oriented. However, I absolutely enjoyed it and had a hard time keeping my giggles quiet every time Eric showed up. The lines he and Sookie exchanged cracked me up big time. I just love those books and I don't think I'll stop until I've read everyone of them.
