The first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series is a lot of fun! Don't let the vampire on the cover scare you off.

This is the beginning of an absorbing series. They have kept me up late many nights because they are so hard to stop reading!

Thoroughly enjoyed Dead Until Dark. I checked out the book after watching the True Blood series and was pleased to find that the first book was even better ( No surprise there) I love the fact that even though the show was pretty on the mark, that the books themselves delve into much more information about our favourites. There is alot of Erotica, but if you've caught glimpses of the show, you already know that. So if thats not your thing, don't check out these book. I however thoroughly enjoyed it. On to book 2.

Do vampires really exist? Yes!...in my opinion. But they all don't obtain their blood by biting. The vampire theme has an esoteric meaning. This book focuses on the Hollywood type vampire. Real vampires thrive on the blood of certain groups of people. It revitalizes them. The violence and debauchery in this book is typical of this society. It didn't bother me because they happen regardless to the words or descriptions used to present them.

Okay, this was just weird. I returned it in less than 24 hours. The whole premise is that vampires do exist and are simply a routine part of daily life in Sookie's world. Maybe some feel this is amusing, but I thought the storyline was seedy and strange. Not my cup of tea.

I expected the first book in the series to be fun, and it delivered. The build-up to her relationship could have been more developed...I felt this lacked in the tv series as well, but now I see that it was following the feeling of the book. Otherwise a good read.

I loved this book! It was such a fun and enjoyable read and I loved the characters. I'm not sure if the author intended it to be funny but I really appreciated the laughs. I was surprised at how "normal" it was to have vampires as part of day-to-day life. I can't wait to read the next in the series.
