|09.10.10|| The... fifth(?) Sookie book. This is the one where... oh yeah, a sniper is shooting shifters, then they have the werewolf pack election or whatever. This one seems even more transitory and episodic than the last. Not even episodic, more like meandering. there's no central plot at all, just following sookie around day in and day out. I won't deny that they are quick reads and i'll probably come back and finish the series at some point (perhaps next summer when True Blood returns) but I think it's time for a break. Plus a woman at work can't remember which is which either so she inadvertantly spoils things by asking "Is this the one where his wife dies?" ugh.
Anyway, I liked this about as much as I liked books 3 and 4. I suspect book 2 will end up being my favorite although I have no clue why. I guess this is good genre writing just like Michael Connelly or Nora Roberts, but for whatever reason I connect with Connelly more at this point. I don't feel it transcends like Pelecanos or Ellroy, although I might read Ellroy's latest next and have different thoughts about that. We'll see.|
