Dead Reckoning av Charlaine Harris

  1. 60
    Död tills mörkret faller av Charlaine Harris (Mind_Booster_Noori)
    Mind_Booster_Noori: This is the first of the series. If you like this book you should read the series, starting by the first (there's characters' development and references to previous books, so this series should be read in publishing order...)

Sookie is a girl who over a short period of time has managed to collect many enemies, but while some will go all out to get her or die trying, others are already dead. Living in this state of constant danger, knowing that at any moment someone could strike her down, is taking its toll and as Sookie's enemies move against her and those she loves, Sookie and the gang decide it time to take matters into their own hands.

As a telepath Sookie is used to keeping secrets, many of them not even her own; however she is not so used to having secrets kept from her. Now it seems that all those closest to her, all those whose thoughts she can't hear, are keeping things from her. But meanwhile Sookie is distracted with the discovery of the truth of her past, her realization of her true feelings for her vampire husband and her admitting to herself what she truly wants from her life.

Dead Reckoning is less the murder mystery that we have come to expect from this series and more a murder plot, with the one exception of a spur of the moment killing. There is plenty to sink your teeth into in this book, killers on the loose, vampire politics, treasures revealed, fairy plots and a baby showing to throw. But underneath it all is the continuing story of Sookie that is just as amazing, horrible and addictive as ever. Also look out for an appearance from Charlaine's other heroine Lily Bard. ( )

Felt like this book should have been part of the previous title; remove a few hundred pages of fluff/padding and it would have felt more like a solid narrative. ( )

This is a short novel (336 pages) that might have benefitted from being a little longer. It has the feeling of "The next episode in" rather than a full novel BUT it is a very pleasing episode (and so much better than the gratuitous, exploitive, porn-candy that Ball produces in "TrueBlood").

I continue to be impressed by how deftly Charlaine Harris uses Sookie's interior dialogues to create a distinctive and evolving world view. Her writing takes no effort at all to read but this is because she writes well, not because she has nothing to say.

This novel continues to explore the arc Sookie is going through from "telepathic girl next door" with a crush on a vampire to someone powerful and dangerous in their own right. In this book Sookie comes to terms with some hard truths about herself, learns new things about her grand mother and reappraises her relationship with just about everyone.

I admire the way Charlaine Harris can make a mundane baby-shower seem like the part of Sookie's life where she is pretending to be someone she has long ago stopped being.

There is a lot of violence and death in this book. It is described with flair and fills the mind while it's happening, but the violence is not gratuitous, its purpose is to show us how, with each killing, Sookie takes another step away from being human.

At one point in Sookie's interior dialog she notes, with some relief, that all the humans have left the room. I believe that she no longer automatically counts herself in that category.

I'll be back for the next episode. I'm happy to wait if that means there'll be more to feed on, but I know the publishing machine demands to be fed and I'm happy to take 336 pages slices of storytelling as good as this. ( )

Once again, I started another Sookie Stackhouse novel, not being able to remember who was who, and what was going on... and yet, I got sucked in! Harris does this to me, every time. The fact that Lily Bard and her BF Jack were there were a lovingly done, but very brief added bonus, that I thrilled at (having just finished the Shakespeare series recently).
An easy read, but altered from the original works, and seemingly watered down somehow. But with just enough back story and momentum to keep me interested enough to finish it a day later. But with a lot of loose ends, to keep one coming back for more. lol ( )

Wow. So much drama! So much to take in! Another great Southern Vampire Mystery! ( )

I have to dedicate this book to the memory of my mother: She would not have thought it strange to have an urban fantasy novel dedicated to her. She was my biggest fan and my most faithful reader. There was so much to admire about my mother. I miss her every day.
