I got a little behind with my book reviews, so here’s another one right on the heels of my last. I finished this one over the weekend while waiting for my hair appointment (I’m desperately trying to keep myself on a schedule to have my hair trimmed, the past few years it’s been hit or miss…but, I digress). After reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – I needed a quick and easy, entertaining read. Sookie #3 to the rescue. Like I said, this series is quick, enjoyable, entertaining and a perfect “palate cleanser” between denser books.
As far as I can tell, this book is pretty much what the third season of True Blood covers. Now, granted, there’s a lot going on in True Blood that wasn’t in the book – but, perhaps it’s in later books? Anyway, I think I enjoy the books themselves a lot more than the series, although with the series you do get Alex Skarsgard. mmm….wait, where was I? Oh yeah, True Blood. The other thing I love about the series that you don’t really get in the books is Pam. I love Pam in True Blood. I particularly like her dialog. For instance…
Pam: I don’t know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago.
Pam: You picking up what I’m putting down?
Pam: Good, I’ll be back tomorrow for the money.
Love it. But, back to the books – well worth the read. I always enjoy taking a little foray into Bon Temps, when I get the chance.
