Infinitely richer than hbo's true blood. really.
I'm talking to those of you who have seen hbo's series and might want to experience a richer, deeper, darker, smarter and sexier take on the southern vampire mysteries. author harris has created an addictive series in which sookie is the center of always strange, sometimes wonderful, and often terrifying events. sookie is truly the heroic figure you saw in the first few episodes and not the crankypants whiner the producers turned her into. what's better about the books? harris writes clean prose and tells her story in a linear style without messy side trips. and here's some good news: skanky jason is a fairly minor character while vampires bill and eric are very major. tara doesn't bear any resemblance to her namesake in the books and i just don't know what to say about that. treat yourself to the fun to be had in reading this wonderful series. richer. deeper. darker. smarter. sexier.
