It's not like me to revisit a book series this quickly, but since TrueBlood, the TV adaptation, starts on Channel 4 tomorrow night, I thought I'd read the next two of Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse books before I moved on to the adaptation. Both books are still plenty of fun, although I think this is clearly going to be one of those series where, in the books at least, I like the supporting characters a lot better than the leads. At least Sookie, with her occasional fainting fits and tendency to throw strops isn't a complete Mary-Sue, but I did get bored of her constant bragging about her looks ("I'm unbelievably attractive and did I mention my boobs are HUGE!") As for her vampire boyfriend Bill, he's so special and unique and different from the other nasty vampires in that he's er, hang on, it'll come to me. Pass. Never mind, Harris is good at throwing in some fun supporting characters and witty touches, so I'll be continuing with the books at some point.
