I’m calling it quits with this series. I was on the fence about it until Sookie was suddenly ambivalent about Bill and KISSED ANOTHER DUDE. Yeah, I’m one of those. Ole Judgy McJudgerpants here – totally willing to dismiss Sookie when she put her tongue in some other fella’s mouth.
So this book had the same vibe as the first one – really light and then sort of horrific and violent. It’s difficult for me to reconcile a ditzy narrator with murder and mayhem. Plus Sookie has some horror movie moments “no, Sookie! Don’t go down those dark stairs.” “Don’t go off into the woods with that strange man.” But all of this was manageable until Sookie said she wasn’t sure how she felt about Bill. Dude, he’s the best part of these books. And if she’s ambivalent about him then I can’t even with her.
