The Southern Vampire Mysteries: Dead To The World

Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana. She's pretty. She does her job well. But she has only a few close friends, because not everyone appreciates Sookie's gift: she can read minds. That's not exactly every man's idea of date bait-unless they're undead; vampires and the like can be tough to read. And's that's the kind of guy Sookie's been looking for. Maybe that's why, when she comes across a naked vampire on the way home from work, she doesn't just drive on by. He hasn't got a clue who he is-as the day she met him. But now he has amnesia, he's sweet, vulnerable and in need of Sookie's help-because whoever took his memory now wants his life.
Sookie's investigation into what's going on leads her into a battle between witches, vampires and werewolves. But there could be even greater danger-to Sookie's heart- because the kinder, gentler Eric is very hard to resist.

This is the forth book of the Southern Vampire Mysteries or the Sookie Stackhouse novels or simpler True Blood. I will start by saying that the book has nothing to do with the series, at least not yet.

I had mentioned before that I'm not keen of Bill and I'm glad for his non-existance in here. Eric is so good, really kind and sweet and so easy to fall in love with. I liked Jason more. He had a funny moment in the beginning with Pam and Chow and you feel sorry for him at the end. And Sookie was the same. I had mentioned that I don't really get her sometimes, but so many things are happening in the book that you actually don't care about her.

Reading the summary, you understand that too many things are happening to make a good battle. I was prepared for something confusing and blur at the end, but I was surprised when I read the battle. Sookie had managed to understand and cope almost everything with some difficulty, which I totally understand, since she's a human in the middle of a supernatural fight.

After finishing the book, I had mixed feelings. I didn't know if I had to feel happy for Sookie that everything ended well, or feel sad for her. The last paragraph was really good. It just shows how good Sookie knows Eric.

Bottom line, I really liked this book. It was the best for me so far, even though I believe it was a little too much.


  1. I have just read the first 2 parts, but I loved them! I don't like Bill either - I am all for Eric! :)

  2. This is one of my favourite books in the series, I love forgetful Eric, he's so adorable!

  3. as you already know i have seen the series and now i can not read the books, also i don't find True Blood that good, so i have no intention to read it..


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
