The inspiration for HBO's hit television drama "True Blood," Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series is now available in this boxed set. Includes "Dead Until Dark, Living Dead in Dallas, Club Dead, Dead to the World, Dead as a Doornail, Definitely Dead, All Together Dead," and "From Dead to Worse." Original.
I have already ordered this box set for myself and a fellow vampire loving best bud for Christmas. To get all eight books in a nice box for that pre-order price is phenominal! Works out to only be about $8 each book and you cant buy them singularly for that price. A liitle more hardcore than the Twilight books with more graphic scenes and sex. For an older audience.
after reading twilight i thought i'd never get as hooked on any other books.
i was wrong! it took me a little while to get into the first book, but since i did i haven't stopped! i love these books.
only thing with this boxset was that the size of the books is a lot smaller than the ones i'd purchased from big w (the first two from this series)! this means it has smaller print, which i didn't like at first, but i got used to it.. and another petty issue i had was the cover art. the first book has the same cover as i'd seen in the shops - pale face, red lips. the second on looks like it's taken from the Trueblood tv series. then the rest are drawings. i would have liked them to be all the same theme, but hey, the stories are still the same!!
these books are addictive, so buying this boxset is well worth it!
i was not overly worried that these books were going to take a while to come as a bargain like that has to have a catch, and then i was AWESOMELY EXCITED to get them after only 7 days!! :o) (although i do understand peoples concern over not being told its a pre-order)
the books are in beautiful order and i cant wait to read them (again, although i had to borrow them last time) well worth the read if you are a fantasy creature fan, is quite simply written but still draws you in just the same. thanks fishpond for this awesome deal!!
Being a fan of just about anything in the vampire and supernatural genre, I was expecting to enjoy these books. What I wasn't expecting was to enjoy them so much that I would read the entire box set in less than 2 weeks! It is filled with so many strong characters and an intricately weaved story that is intense, intriguing, and at times even funny. I became so caught up in the story and wanted to know where the characters went next. The only complaint I have is the packaging. I love box sets, but this box is a little flimsy and even though I am super careful with my library it is coming apart in places. A stronger box of slightly thicker cardboard would have been better as holding 8 books in, especially after being read, requires a little bit more strength than this box gives. I also would have liked if the cover art was consistent as most have a drawn image but the first 2 have pictures from the TV series.
I have really enjoyed The Sookie Stackhouse stories. I got interested after watching the True Blood series on TV. The books are written in the first person (being Sookie) which I like, and so you get to know Sookies thoughts on things etc, they can be quite witty & funny. I recommend buying these if you are into reading about vampires & supernaturals, I can definitely see myself reading them again, and they are very good value in the set of 8. I have since purchased the ninth book which I also enjoyed. Can't wait for the next installemant.
After watching the first season of True Blood , I just had to buy these books !!
And with the great story line they are so hard to put down,so its well worth buying all 8 at
once..I now love these books so much (& Eric Nothman) That I cant wait to get the rest from
Fishpond.. My product arrived in tip top condition,as I ordered & fast..
Any fan of the show True Blood will LOVE this series of books. I whipped through these in a little over a week because I couldn't put them down. Will definately be reading them again in the future.
There is a 9th book ( which i've also read ) and i can tell you now, it will leave you chomping at the bit for May next year when the 10th book is released.
The characters you have come to know on the show go through some interesting situations. There is a growing connection between Sookie and Eric. There are some really touching moments and some very sad ones, which left me crying, but there is also some good one liners that cracked me up.
This is the talent of writer Charlaine Harris. Her ability to combine everything into a great novel and keep you enthralled with the goings on in and around Sookie's life and the people ( alive and dead ) of Bon Temps.
Buy these books, you wont be disappointed. I for one wish i'd discovered them a long time ago.
If you love Vampires, Werewolf's, Shape-shifters, Witches, Fairies and good old fashion Southern folk! then you'll love the Southern Vampire Mysteries aka Sookie Stackhouse
The way that author Charlaine Harris has created a world where vampires and humans co-exist, to an extent anyway, I really love the story line, it just grabs you right in and keeps you going all the way to book 10! and leaves you wanting more and more from the sookieverse!
I hope this series strives for many more books to come, and that HBO continue with the television series True Blood to go along with the books.
