Sookie Stackhouse is just a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. Until the vampire of her dreams walks into her life-and one of her coworkers checks out....
Maybe having a vampire for a boyfriend isn't such a bright idea.
(Honestly, finding a good summary of this book was impossible! But, really, I think most people get the idea :)
So, I really don't watch a lot of TV, but I've wanted to see TrueBlood for a while now. It's just that, well, I'd rather read :) So I finally managed to get a copy of the first few books in this series and really enjoyed the first one! It took me a while to get into the story and characters, mainly I think because there's a lot of "Southern" flavor to the pacing and flow of the book--particularly how Sookie thinks and talks. For a California girl, that took a little getting used to. But then I was drawn in and loving all the myriad of characters, their thoughts and quirks, and the very real work Harris has built. Lots of fun, for an adult book anyway!
My question is, how true to the books is the TV show? A lot? Not so much? (I really should just suck it up and Netflix the first season, but I've got this manuscript to finish, and my first round of edits from my editor are due any day now....)
