|08.17.10|| Third Sookie book. Liked this one more than the previous two, mostly because the ending didn't infuriate me like the others have. I still think that the show does a better job constructing plot, but Harris' imagination is flowering more with every book and the details she includes about her world are what make the show a success. It's still weird how ultra-minor characters in the book are relatively major players in the show, and i found it cool that all the stuff going on with the show in Bill's world technically could have been happening in the book but we'd never know it because thanks to sookie's narration, we have no clue what Bill's world is like when he's away from her.
That said, I found Bill's reason for leaving in the book lackluster compared to Russell's plan in the show. His relationship with Weres is also less explained in the book which irked me a bit (see above with my comment about plot), but at least its not as convenient as having Lafayette's bloody wallet in a trunk or your brother's childhood friend turn out to be a killer slash sister necro rapist. So i think these books are getting better.
I'm jumping right into the next one because I want to experience at least one book without the predisposition of the show weighing over it.|
