Dead Until Dark

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris is the first book of the Sookie Stackhouse novels. These are the same novels that the HBO series True Blood is based on. Now I have only seen the 1st 3 episodes of True Blood and what I saw, well, really didn't impress me. I'm not sure if it was the writing or the actors. But I couldn't get hooked on it. I do have it on my Netflix rotation to see the entire 1st season but that's kind of down the road.

I did pick up the first novel, Dead Until Dark. It is the same storyline as the television series with a few differences. There are some characters in the tv series not in the book and vice versa. I have to say that I really did enjoy the book A LOT more than the tv series. I'm very much looking forward to picking up the second book!

My suggestion, if you didn't like the tv series, try the book.

I love those books...and because I do I really have no interest in watching the tv series.Somehow I never like the movies as well as the books. Keep with the series...I think you'll be glad you did!

I read these books quite awhile ago (at least the first few and have been reading them as they are published since).
I do LOVE the books.
But agree that the one episode of the HBO series I saw was kinda blah. Hope you enjoy the rest of the books!

I love the Sookie books and I watched the whole season of True Blood. it is ok. Acting isn't the greatest.
