Great Series...Just finished all 9 and it’s the start of something new for me...Reading for fun! I love Sookie’s character and can’t wait for the next in the series. The TrueBlood HBO Series deviates from the books, but they are both great for the different mediums they are presenting in...Hard to see the internal thoughts of a character on the screen, so they’ve elaborated the story-line, altered plots, and expanded some of the characters that would have otherwise been victims of the town of Bon Temps’ attraction for the ,Great Series...Just finished all 9 and it’s the start of something new for me...Reading for fun!

Sookie Stackhouse is a small-town waitress on a seemingly permanent streak of bad luck. She can read minds (which is annoying), one of her coworkers has been murdered (which is unpleasant), and her new love interest is a vampire (which means he might kill her). Life in rural Louisiana has just gotten very complicated. Still, Bill is a hunk and dating a vampire does have its benefits—Sookie can’t hear the thoughts in his head, for one thing, which is a refreshing change—but it’s not all fun in the dark. Bill has some decidedly unsavory friends, and there is that pesky murder—and that’s just the first book! But Sookie’s no damsel in distress. She’s a smart, thoughtful, generous young woman who readers care about, even as author Charlaine Harris causes thrills and chills with a quirky array of supporting characters and suspenseful mystery plots. Plus there are vampires, and let’s face it, we all love a mystery with a blood-sucking undead creature of the night. Sookie’s relationships with various mythical creatures continue in eight other books. Each one is as colorful and atmospheric as Dead Until Dark, which serves as the introduction to Sookie and her distinctly unusual lifestyle (and is the inspiration for the hit TV-show True Blood). Cleverly blending romance, action, and the paranormal, Sookie Stackhouse is the go-to girl for some seriously spooky sleuthing.

Great book! I had to read it after watching the HBO series TrueBlood on T.V.! The book is a little different from the series which I definably like! A must read to those who love a good vampire story!

The "Southern Vampire" series are some of my favorite books. This is the first in a series of books about a telepathic waitress in a small LA town, and her encounters with vampires, shifters, and other supernatural beings.
