Description:
Things between cocktail waitress Sookie and her vampire boyfriend Bill seem to be going excellently (apart from the small matter of him being undead) until he leaves town for a while. A long while. Bill's sinister boss Eric has an idea of where to find him, whisking her off to Jackson, Mississippi to mingle with the under-underworld at Club Dead. When she finally catches up with the errant vampire, he is in big trouble and caught in an act of serious betrayal. This raises serious doubts as to whether she should save him or start sharpening a few stakes of her own ..

My Thoughts:
 
Sookie Stackhouse is back again as we find ourselves heading back to Bon Temps. This time her beloved Vampire Bill is missing. This one sends Sookie to Memphis to inquire with her mind skills, what has happened to Bill Compton. So to sum it up. Sookie is a barmaid who hears what others think. She calls it her "disability" which it really isn't. She fell for Bill due to the fact she thought it was great that she couldn't hear what he is thinking. Her boss Sam Merlott has a crush on her. Her brother Jason Stackhouse has to be biggest player in the world. The only one looking out for Sookie in Club Dead is Eric the vampire who has Alcide Herveaux a werewolf to keep Sookie safe while in Memphis.

I like this book, as it shows what she would go through if she separated from Bill. There are ups and downs as with any of the Sookie stories, sometimes to much back drop is being explained to us. That can get rather annoying. I think how it showed Sookie with someone who is closer to her that she may realize. I am defiantly curious to see how these books play out. My rating is 4 java cups, as I think it would've been better if she had gotten angry at some of the right people.


For anyone who likes Sookie Stackhouse which book is your favorite and why?

I liked "Club Dead" mainly because the closer Sookie got to Eric the more I liked the book. Here we see her really conflicted about who is the right man for her. Alcide is definitely one hot Were available but Eric really cares about her in the most touching way and she can't read his mind at all.

I liked the most two last ones for the reason stated above. I have never been fond of Bill.

For me the best book was Dead to the World, Eric in that book is so unEric, and one of my fave scenes will always be the image of him watching Buffy and laughing when they get all vampy.

I loved it when Eric got back the memory of everything he had said and done during his "out-of-mind" period and STILL didn't seem abashed at it. Quite a guy. "Dead to the World" wasn't bad either, though.
