You know what that means, right?
It’s the day of the week – when Charlaine Harris reads parts of her Sookie Stackhouse series in a series of videos shared by Gollancz books, and it’s the day when bloggers on Tor.com review the books in succession. This Thursday they are re-reading/living “Living Dead in Dallas” – book two of the series!
Love what she says about the book! :) Re-living Godfrey’s death is always so sad to me…
Now, let’s see what they say about the book over at Tor.com in their review of LDID.
What’s our favorite part of this review? This part below… ;)
Ah, Eric. Feel free to disagree, but I might as well admit it now—he is my favorite of all Sookie’s pursuers. Thank goodness we see more of him in this book! And while we see that while Eric may be manipulative and egocentric (that stunt with the bullet, anyone?), he also does care about Sookie. And while part of that may be for power or sex, he seems to care for her on a human level as well. Contemplating her mortality, protecting her from harm. Unlike Bill, he is not overcome by his hunting instincts during the shooting—he stays with Sookie. Apparently he’s trying to wear her down, judging by this quote:
Eric: “I’m hoping that the more you see me, the more I’ll grow on you.”
Sookie: Like a fungus?”
You will hear no disagreement from all of us around here…feel free to keep praising the vampire Viking sex God!
What did you like best about this book? The orgy, bullet-sucking…? Feel free to discuss it below!
