Dead Until Dark
by Charlaine Harris
Rating: So so
Difficulty: Normal
Pages: 260

Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana, but she keeps to herself and doesn't date much because of her "disability" to read minds. When she meets Bill, Sookie can't hear a word he's thinking. He's the type of guy she's waited for all of her life, but he has a disability, too--he's a vampire with a bad reputation. When one of Sookie's coworkers is killed, she fears she's next.

Since I love True Blood and every vampire novel/book ever created (well maybe not ever but you get the point), I just had to get my hands on the novel version of this t.v. show. Dead Until Dark is suprisingly way different from the actual t.v. show so if you want to read the book just to have it mimic the television version- don't get it. Don't get me wrong, its still an awesome book and all...its just not the same. Thew book doesn't go into detail about Jason's drug abuse or him and Amy's relationship, there is no Tara or Maryann in the first novel and it doesn't even talk alot about Sam's relationship with Maryann and Tara or how he became a shapeshifter. The book did have some strong points though- like Bill! I really think Bill is kind of a more grown-up version of Edward Cullen from Twilight. He is very suave and charming in Dead Until Dark and he is also way, way more explicit (lol). This isn't a YA novel but it is still very good and very interesting! There are alot more book in the series and i can't wait ti read the next ones! P.S. I love the cover too!! :)

  1. I was thinking of reading this book since I love the show, but maybe now I won't. I just don't think I would enjoy the TV show as much if I knew what was going to happen.



Remember...I love Comments! :)
