    One thought on “Dead and Gone”

    1. It’s not the worst book ever written as some reviewers say, but it’s not that good either. Charlaine Harris failed to deliver what we all wanted to read about and over-delivered on what we didn’t really care for. What I mean is most of us keep reading this series primarily to find out who Sookie finally settles with. No matter what team you were on – Eric, Bill, Quinn, Sam – you expected some kind of resolution, at least temporary, to her love life. We got none of it. There was so litt [...]

    2. This was an okay Sookie story, although it was a bit dull in places.Sookie was once again in trouble in this story, although I have to say that putting lemon juice in water pistols to kill fairies was quite clever!The storyline in this was about Crystal being killed, and someone trying to kill Sookie, as well as some romance with an old favourite! The first half of the book dragged a bit, but the second half was better, and I really liked the romance!!The ending to this left Sookie still in dang [...]

    3. In the 9th Sookie book we are basically facing the fall-out from 2 revelations: That Sookie's Great-Grandfather is Fairy Royalty, and that the Were's have finally revealed themselves. Each has results ending in not very good things for Sookie, mainly kidnapping from psycho fairies who are responsible for her parents deaths (I always knew there had to be more to the flash flood) and Arlene plotting with the Fellowship to kill Sookie and string her up on a cross. There is also requisite murder tha [...]

    4. ***Spoiler Alert***I was okay with the book until about 20 pages to go and then all hell broke loose. What is the point of telling us Claudine is pregnant if you are going to kill her two pages later?!?! Just let Sookie, and us, think she is knitting a sweater for an elf, or gnome or whatever! We don't need two pregnant women killed in one book. I am not okay with how "eh" the deaths were taken in this book either. I hate the way Dawson's death was treated, and then the drug dealer rumor. Tray w [...]

    5. ❤ 5 Dead and Gone Stars ❤ This book is action PACKED, Sookie needs protection from the fairies.Strange deaths, horrible deaths. And confusion of Love.It’s weird read this series because somethings happened in the TV True Blood and somethings didn’t. And once in a while they sync up. The whole fairies part still kind of baffles me. And why is Sookie still hung up on Bill only when he doesn’t something nice for her. Saving her life and all of a sudden he is a hero, Erik did that same thi [...]

    6. will start off by saying I love this series. I started it long before the TRUE BLOOD HBO series came out so I have been faithful from the beginning, and have always waited anxiously for the newest book in the series. I also reread the series each time a new book comes out to keep refreshing. Most were great book. A few of her more recent ones left me a little hungry for more as they didn?t really hit the spot but they were OK. I was excited for this book hoping Miss Harris would really expand up [...]

    7. The best thing I can say about this book is that it has a lot of Eric in it. Otherwise I think it's possibly the worst of the series.Charlaine Harris has a slow, rambling style of writing, which I happen to enjoy in a nice, fat 800-page novel. When you're publishing 300 pages of widely-spaced type in a large font, you need to be more focused in your storytelling.This book seems like half a novel. There are several plot lines left hanging, and the ending is rushed, as if Harris saw her deadline a [...]

    8. OMG OMG OMG!!!! This book is the reason I came up with six stars. I love Sookie, she is one of my favorite female protagonists. She has just the right amount of supernatural abilities combined with just the right amount of struggles with that power. Her life is hugely out of her control, yet she manages to fight for what little she can have.I love Eric. He is one of my three favorite vampires (the others being Thomas Raith from Jim Butcher's Dresden Files and Quinn from Keri Arthur's Riley Jense [...]

    9. I just finished Dead and Gone and I must say that I loved it. I agree with previous reviews that it was much darker than previous Sookie's but I see that as a good thing. Life is changing Sookie and she is shedding some of her idealism, which is something all of us must face to some degree or another to find our own truths.This books has many painful losses, but it also has a significant amount of growth on the parts of many of our main characters. I too am anxious for the next book if for no ot [...]

    10. ***Spoilers***Well, I am thrilled that Eric and Sookie's relationship is back, sorta. But nothing is really ever how it appears in this series, and none of their time together seemed 100% normal to me, like there was something important we still need to know. The more blood they exchanged the more I worried that Eric will end up dying at some point. I hope not :( Although he is controlling to a degree that would piss me off royally in the real world fits his personality and job description as sh [...]

    11. It wasn't a bad story, I'll say that much, but the series does seem to be weakening. The problem for me is the change in focus from vampires onto every other kind of supernatural being you can think of. In the first couple of books of the series, I loved the stories and characters, couldn't get enough of them and then came werewolves and shifters, I didn't like them as much but I was just about willing to accept them. Then it just got worse and worse. I found that I didn't care about werepanther [...]

    12. This is probably my least favorite of the Sookie novels, but that is not to say that I didn't enjoy it. Harris is back with her witty dialogue and elaborate cast of characters, but as the story arcs away from the vampires, it loses something. The last 50 or so pages move so quickly and there are too many references left open for the future. I like that the previous Sookie books could stand alone. This one gave me the sensation that Harris is just priming us for the next book, which was a bit dis [...]

    13. ay yi yi. I've been with Sookie since 2004 when I read the first 5 books back to back. Loved it. Quirky southern characters, good suspense plots and occasional steam thrown in for good measure. The last book (book 8) seemed to be a bridge book leading to an exciting turn of events in this one. No go. This book started funny (What Not To Wear for Vamps, lol), but soon got booooorrrring. Sookie is tired and 'blood bonded' to Eric (my choice for a mate, fo sho), so she never gets angry anymore. Per [...]

    14. The scattered book 8 set up for this one nicely & much was resolved. This book was more on track, as usual & about the same caliber. It should be read in order. It's a soap opera, so you need the background to appreciate how our heroine works through her various difficulties. All in all, more fun reading candy. 28May11 - re-read the HB which I now own. Teresa loaned me the new book #11 & I've 're-read' the series up to this point in audiobook format, downloaded from the local library [...]

    15. Book Nine. Sookie’s still going, even though nothing new has happened for at least five volumes now (being generous). This particular edition of her repetitive adventures recycles two oft-used Harris’ plot – a spate of random attacks and a war involving ‘Supes’. Both of these proceed as usual, although the latter does involve the hasty introduction of a horde of new characters, and a rushed explanation of their lineage. Given Harris’ has had eight previous books in which to launch so [...]

    16. I would say that as a general "life rule" it would be a good idea to keep out of immortal wars when you are a human. You're gonna get your ass kicked while all the supernatural creatures can just heal, and can't easily die. Of course, Sookie is still kind of a dumbass, and finds herself in the middle of a fairy war. This is after being in a vampire war and werewolf war.All we need to make this party better is a stupid redneck girlThe best part of this book is that Sookie finally starts to come a [...]

    17. Oh wow.Harris certainly didn't hold back with this one! (And I'm happy to say that the taint of the awful Aurora Teagarden series I read to tide me over until this book was released is finally gone!) I can confidently say this is probably in the Top Three books of the series. Here are a few random thoughts.- Eric continues to be a delight. I love him and Sookie together. And other than Sookie, I think Eric is the character that has developed the most over the course of the series. - Claudine! *s [...]

    18. This is going to kill me waitinglolI HATE BILL with a passion that b urns brighter than the sun and I wish that she would have killed him instead of killing off Claudine whom was such a sweet and loving character. The end of the book Niall says, "The vampire is a good man and he loves you" Sookie has the BALLS THE BALLS to wonder which one he meant Eric or Bill OF CORSE HE MEANT ERIC ASSHOLE!!!!! What a slutlolI wonder if anyone can tell that I am totally for ERIC!!! He is so sweet and you can t [...]

    19. It was kind of weird reading this book. Perhaps my memory is a little skewed but in most Sookie books there's always a lot going on and Sookie is hardly home. However in this book it was interesting in that Sookie was in Bon Temps the whole book. She went to work and tended the garden all while the supernatural stuff came to her. It felt a bit slow to me but Eric was in it a lot and that's more than enough to keep me happy. I'm certainly curious as to hearing his explanation for him being MIA in [...]

    20. This seems to be the point in this rather long series where the author was losing interest in these characters but was still being encouraged to produce books by her publisher. While still entertaining, they are becoming cookie-cutter books, with predictable characters in predictable predicaments solving their problems in predictable ways.This should have been the book to deal with the “coming out” stories of the Were community, and instead it gets hijacked by fairy drama. So, while I would [...]

    21. Bob knows I love a good popcorn read and they don't get much more corny Charlaine Harris' Sookie books. Reading about Sookie's misadventures with the vampires that live out in the open is always a good way to spend an afternoon in the sun. So finding out that the newest addition to the Sookie series came out on Tuesday had me more excited than I am comfortable admitting.Four hours later the book is finished and I'm relaxing in the heady afterglow of a fun tale well spun. Yet, was this a Southern [...]

    22. I had conflicted feeling about this one. I hated how there came to be so much angst from Sookie about Eric. This is the one where he "tricks" her into a vampire marriage to try and protect her from Felipe de Castro.There's some boring stuff about Jason and his wife, Arlene does something stupid and boring, and then there is the whole fairy war thing, and that just never appealed to me much. I think it was dumb to kill off (view spoiler)[Claudine (hide spoiler)]. There is a reveal about Sookie's [...]

    23. 4.5 ★sDead and Gone is the ninth full-length novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. The weres have decided to come out to the world, and the supe community holds its breath, waiting for the reaction, which is mixed, but a lot less negative than might have been anticipated. There are incidents, of course: Sam’s mother is shot and Jason’s wife is brutally murdered, although whether this is a reaction to weres, or something more personal, is not cl [...]

    24. Oh Sookie! I just can't get enough of this girl's life! Charlaine Harris' latest Sookie Stackhouse book is "Dead and Gone". Fans of this series won't want to miss the madcap happenings in a Louisiana where vamps, weres, fae, and other creatures roam. Harris infuses this series with humor, drama, sex, mystery, and enough memorable characters to keep it going ad infinitum least I hope so.Sookie's life used to be so, wellrmal. Now she's blood-tied to a master vamp who wants to sleep with her (among [...]

    25. Hmmm I felt disappointed with this one. The end was just wrapped up to quickly, and the treatment and tragic end to some characters - SPOILER - Claudine!? why dismiss her death in this way? I was also sad that Tray died. which vampire did Niall mean when he told Sookie that at the very end? my initial thought was that it had to be Eric, because Niall didn't really know Bill. It seems like CH is starting to formulate an ending here - things are slowly wrapping up. I have a feeling that something [...]

    26. Holy heck on wheels, Vampire Bill managed to redeem himself! Who knew?!?I felt like this was very much an "in-between" book that could send the series in any number of directions in the future, but it was still very entertaining and well worth the read for anyone who loves the series.Since the book is so newly published, I'm reluctant to say anything more that might be too spoilerish so I'll leave it at this and strongly urge anyone who hasn't read it yet to do so as soon as possible!!! :)

    27. Sorry to say this one was really disappointing. I think Charlaine Harris' writing has come a long way since the start of this series, but I think Dead and Gone is a considerable step backwards, and really has me thinking this series should be given an honourable endaning sooner than later. Obviously there's at least one more book coming in the series. Sadly, I'll be hoping for one last reasonable attempt, rather than waiting with great anticipation as I have for some of the previous books.

    28. More brain candy from Harris. The TV series is a lot (sorry) meatier, but this will help to pass the time until the new season in June.

    29. Rating: 3.75* of fiveThe Publisher Says: Except for Sookie Stackhouse, folks in Bon Temps, Louisiana, know little about vamps-and nothing about weres.Until now. The weres and shifters have finally decided to reveal their existence to the ordinary world. At first all goes well. Then the mutilated body of a were-panther is found near the bar where Sookie works-and she feels compelled to discover who, human or otherwise, did it.But there's a far greater danger threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhum [...]

    30. Πήρα τα επόμενα τρία (να την φας και να'ναι κρύα) από τον φίλο μου με τα used boooks στο Μοναστηράκι και άκουσα έναν που τα ήθελε απεγνωσμένα στα ελληνικά, αλλά δεν πρόλαβα να δω ποιος ήταν γιατί ήμουν σκυμμένη στα sci-fi, μήπως έτσι απλά έχασα τον νέο καλύτερο μου φίλο
