Publisher's Summary

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's a very cute bubbly blonde - or not interested in a social life. She really is...but Sookie's got a bit of a disability. She can read minds.And that doesn't make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill: he's tall, he's dark and he's handsome - and Sookie can't 'hear' a word he's thinking. He's exactly the type of guy she'sbeen waiting all her life for. But Bill has a disability of his own: he's fussy about his food, he doesn't like suntans, and he's never around during the day....Yep, Bill's a vampire. Worse than that, he hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, with a reputation for trouble - of the murderous kind. And then one of Sookie's colleagues at the bar is killed, and it's beginning to look like Sookie might be the next victim....

Clever, funny & surprisingly well written. I hesitate to draw comparisons with other vampire/human relationship sagas, as all have value in this literary genre. However, this story, & I suspect all subsequent sequels, contains adult content that I would not necessarily recommend for the younger teenage reader/listener. Johanna Parker brings the story alive & is by far my favourite narrator so far.

I have watched the first season of True Blood and didn't really like it all that much, it was a little too explicit for my tastes but I decided to give the book a go. I was pleasantly surprised and found it very hard to stop listening to once I started.
