Tag: Charlaine Harris

First Line Friday #33

One of my friends first convinced me to watch True Blood and also read the Sookie Stackhouse series.  The first season of True Blood is the closest to the novels, after that they each go in their own direction.  The book series slowly declines, to me it felt like Charlaine Harris was stuck in a contract and had to get a set number of books written. I did not really enjoy the last couple of books, but I continued it to see how it would end.

I’d been waiting for the vampire for years when he walked into the bar.

Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She’s quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn’t get out much. Not because she’s not pretty. She is. It’s just that, well, Sookie has this sort of “disability.” She can read minds. And that doesn’t make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill. He’s tall, dark, handsome–and Sookie can’t hear a word he’s thinking. He’s exactly the type of guy she’s been waiting for all her life….

But Bill has a disability of his own: He’s a vampire with a bad reputation. He hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, all suspected of–big surprise–murder. And when one of Sookie’s coworkers is killed, she fears she’s next….

If you are a fan then you are either ‘Team Bill’ or ‘Team Eric’. I am Team Eric! If you watched the show and/or read the books, whose ‘team’ are you on? For the tv show I am also ‘Team Alcide’!
