I have never been so disappointed and consequently, angry, by a book as I am right now and it is actually hard for me to type. My brain is exploding right now.
This is going to be a rant. This is going to contain cusses. This is also going to call out Tru Blood. People are going to either like this or not. First - Tru Blood has killed this series. Harris is no longer writing for a book medium, to me she is writing something that may look good on the screen and damn the consequences. The show is the campy cousin of the series and while the Stackhouse series has always balanced light, sexy and dark the last two books have been a stagnant mess.
Please remember those of us who had been fans of the book since before HBO needed a new show to take over the Sex and the City demographics. Onto the book: This is me reading the first half of the book: Eric was a bitch in the book.
This is not a spoiler because you will realize this in about six pages. This will in turn spoil the first or so pages because we are then treated to the view spoiler [ turmoil of the Sookie and Eric relationship. Not only do us fans get treated to the mistrust that Sookie has due to the bond, we get to experience Eric face pummel Pam and Sookie not having enough balls to ask why.
She goes on to complain that "Eric never talks to me about anything really important. Please see the above reason. By me. However, Eric has the right to be a bitch for about three pages before he stuffs those emotions back in like the Stone Cold Vampire we know he is. Yes, Eric has his moments of Diva-ism and just completely not getting the need for communication and choice that humans have but his behavior in three quarters was just disgraceful.
I wanted to punch him in his lovely face. Sookie should have stepped up and said something. She has no problem talking to Bill even when they were dating and had no trouble booting the Were-Tiger because he has mommy issues and she gives Sam the "what for" all the time. Why in the world would Sookie become a complacent brat about his silence? When she does decide to talk to him, she just lets things drop because While they are interesting and familiar, you begin to realize that you do not have enough grace to care about them enough.
The middle of the book: Characters are now caricatures of themselves, plots are messy and contrived, our heroine is growing harder and tougher and then all of a sudden becomes a weepy mess. It definitely has its advantages, one being he can come to her rescue when she ends up involved in a mess, not necessarily of her own making.
But it also was sort of forced upon her, for her own good. So she treats the bond like a four year treats broccoli on its plate; she simply removes it. Thanks Amelia! At least you had a purpose in this book! Thank Fuck! Did we need a naked Alcide to tell us that Janalynn thinks of Sookie as a rival?
All it led to was the removal of some secondary characters that had outlived their purpose. So, um, thanks? I wish this whole book had been from her point of view because by the end of the book I was tired of this mirror-world circus. The end of the book: Oy with the poodles already. At this point it has taken me one week to finish this book. I usually devour the Stackhouse books when they come out and finish it in one night.
The end was the only high point and not just because it was done but because this is where the meat of the story actually occurs. Oh, did I mention that Sandra Pelt is out and has no bearing on the larger part of the story, which is Anyhoooooo, so, Sookie actually plans the death of Victor and then the night when the vamps all go into battle frenzy mode, she becomes a hypocrite and is disgusted by the actions.
However, I like how you bit her and made it hurt because at that point, she needed some sense to clear her head. I mean, she planned and participated in the attack. However, he only decides to bring it up after the fact. Is he going to get out of it? Does he want to?
Sookie broke the bond and that hurt him. Will he stay? Stay tuned for the next edition of "What the hell is going on with these people". So, Sam and Sookie seem like they should end up together. Sorry I said it. It is out in the open. Deal with it how you wilt. Oh, Hunter. How could I forget. Was Harris afraid we would forget about him? Was it to remind us that Sookie is human and has human dealings?
It has some really good parts but they are all tied together with seemingly random and transient cords and then brought together for the final assembly. Of course since there is no QC in this factory, we are given a book that should have been given a polish without the influence of Tru Blood.
It seems she was writing for the new fans and forgetting about the old ones. There was no real story here. Just a few interesting things that happened that had characters in common.
He wants me to be like all the other kids, Hunter said, half-sad, halfresentful. He wants you to be happy. But this is the only secret you have to keep. If anyone talks to you about it, tell your dad or call me. If someone tries to bad-touch you, you tell. But he swallowed and said, I know about bad touching. Heck, no!
