Overview

With a rabid fan base that grows larger each day, the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Sookie Stackhouse mysteries by acclaimed author Charlaine Harris are not to be missed. Along with their phenomenal popularity, the books have also captivated critics and earned such prestigious honors as an Anthony Award Wedding fever has come to Bon Temps, Louisiana! Unfortunately, buxom, blonde, beautiful, and telepathic cocktail waitress Sookie is not the bride-to-be, so she takes the opportunity to travel to New Orleans on family business. As heir to the estate of her newly dead cousin Hadley, Sookie unearths a big secret. Soon it becomes clear that more than a few people will do anything to stop Sookie from looking into Hadley's past. Fresh, fashionable, and a little bit frightening, Definitely Dead is the best entry yet in an endlessly entertaining series.
"Harris' Southern vampire series remains one of the best of the breed, concocted out of just the right mixture of humor, intrigue, and excitement."—Booklist

I did not realize this was a series of books so I had a hard time figuring out the characters. Once I did, I really enjoyed the book and now want to find the others so I know all of what is happening to Sookie.

I LOVE the Sookie series! I just wish books # 2, 3 and 4 would be released on audio book! I have read them all but there is something great about stories like these being read to me! Put a new face on all of the characters.. If you like vampires, weres, funny sarcastic, snarky Southern gals and a little mystery and a bit o' lovin' thrown in you will LOVE this series of books! I went through the entire written series in less than 2 weeks!

Whenever I finish listening to (or reading) one of these Sookie Stackhouse books, I feel much like I used to when I had to return to bording school after visiting home during vacation -- Thanksgiving or Christmas. (I *loved* being home) I miss the characters as tho' they're as real as my flesh-and-blood friends & relatives. Humm, maybe I should be careful how I use that phrase. "Flesh-and-Blood"-Sookie (w/ a surprising twist to her DNA introduced in this book!) has a new boyfriend -- a wareTiger who sounds as delicious as Harris makes the sexiest and most loving of Sookie's lovers. Yum! I can't wait to read more. Pls. Ms. Harris, KEEP THEM COMING!! I'm hooked -- happily.

I didn't like this book at first. It was a little hard adjusting to a world "with vampires, werewolves and shape-shifters, but I did. Story was interesting and I ended up enjoying the book. I would say that I am from the deep south and that was one hokey accent the narrator had going on.
