Alas, I have failed you. But, its not my fault. I can’t give you a beautiful review of a not-s0-beautiful (read: eh, not good) book. Book 12: Deadlocked, in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse novels, was a disappointment.
Maybe its because I read all the others so close together. Maybe its because I’m bored of the story? Maybe its because I am watching the series on HBO right now and it is such a diversion from the book????? Whatever it was, I’m not happy.
Quite frankly, I’m bored of Sookie. I’m bored of her torrid love affairs with vampires and “supes” as she calls them. I’m less than pleased with the character development in this novel – there weren’t many news ones and that’s never good. It felt like Harris just needed a few extra bucks so she wrote another book, preying on dummies like me who would buy it just because it was next in line in the series. Well, Miss Harris – you got me! I did your bidding. I hope you enjoy the $11 I paid for the book (or whatever it even cost!). Go buy yourself a starbucks or two and start on the next one – which I probably won’t read.
I actually have no clue what they are even about. I just know that people love them and my friends are SHOCKED that I haven’t yet bitten in.
