World Building at It's Best


I have tried other books by Charlaine Harris, but the Midnight series is the only one that I have really enjoyed reading. The difference for me is the fact that the author is very successful at world building in this novel. Blue ribbon world building seems to be reserved for high sci-fi or epic fantasy (like King's, "The Talisman"), but Harris accomplishes it by providing the reader with intense imagery of the tiny town of Midnight. There is a cat that needs to experience it's 9th life, but other than that, suspension of belief is easy.

I am such a picky reader that it embarrasses me, so I always try to shout out if an Audible selection holds my attention from the first page to the last. This paranormal mystery will hold your attention from page one, and you will step into the story.

This series is definitely worth your time, and is best read in order.

Midnight, Texas Continues to Fascinate

I enjoyed this book. And I like the narration on this series. I think the main character is quirky enough to be very entertaining, yet not so far out there that he is totally un-relatable to a real reader. I would like to see some of the secondary characters roles expanded. Several of them should be be quite interesting.

This book brings back a couple of the major characters of several of the Sookie Stackhouse series. They weren't characters I particularly liked in that series, but I enjoyed their participation in this book. It actual gave more depth to at least one of the characters and made him more sympathetic.

I hope there are more books in this series. I will definitely read them. I recommend the series to Charlaine Harris fans. So far it isn't as funny as the Sookie series, but I think it is a little more complex and closer in form and structure to the Harper Connelly series.
