I've just finished reading nine books in the Sookie Stackhouse series - up to Dead and Gone - one after the other. In my mixed up way - I'd already read three of them before - out of sequence - well I think it was three, my memory is terrible. But anyway - I've now read them properly in order and I really enjoyed the experience. I'd liked the ones I'd read before but nowhere near as much as I did as when they became part of the longer story. This time I was IN that world, with Sookie and Eric and Bill and the rest. Maybe it helped that having seen Trueblood series one and two on the TV, I put faces to the names and was able more easily to picture the sultry Louisiana environment. Not that Ms Harris doesn't do a great job of painting that picture, she does, but combine the two together and I'm now a big fan.
