THE FINAL SOOKIE STACKHOUSE NOVEL
There are secrets in the town of Bon Temps, ones that threaten those closest to Sookie—and could destroy her heart….
Sookie Stackhouse finds it easy to turn down the request of former barmaid Arlene when she wants her job back at Merlotte’s. After all, Arlene tried to have Sookie killed. But her relationship with Eric Northman is not so clearcut. He and his vampires are keeping their distance…and a cold silence. And when Sookie learns the reason why, she is devastated.
Then a shocking murder rocks Bon Temps, and Sookie is arrested for the crime.
But the evidence against Sookie is weak, and she makes bail. Investigating the killing, she’ll learn that what passes for truth in Bon Temps is only a convenient lie. What passes for justice is more spilled blood. And what passes for love is never enough…
This is a non-review.
“Huh?” You say.
I can’t review a book I have not read all the way through. I read this book, chapters 1-6, but I was so bored that I skipped to chapters 21&22 (the last two chapters)to continue the boredom. I have to confess that I haven’t been much onboard with this series since around book 6 or maybe book 7 but I have continued to read each one hoping that the next will be the one to get the story back on track, it never happened for me. (I watch Trueblood hoping for the same thing and each season since the first I’ve been disappointed.)
I agree with some reviews that say Charlaine Harris has every right to end the story the way she wants. I also think the readers have every right to say that they feel like they have been insulted by the way she has gone about her ending.
I rated this book a “2- OMG! Did I pay for this?” and yes, I coughed up $18.00 at Target to buy this disappointment. So I guess this non-review is a review since I’ve given my $.02 worth of opinion. I will welcome your $.02 worth of opinion in the comments.
