by Charlaine Harris
Series: Sookie Stackhouse #1
Publication Date: January 2, 2008
Genre: Urban Fantasy
I read this for the first time in 2008, when it came out, but find I don’t have any notes or reviews of it; obviously I was only lurking and shelving on GR back in 2008. I remember really liking it back then, and I’ve read all but the 13th and final novel since.
However, upon a second read many years later, I find the writing doesn’t hold up. Sookie is naive and a bit simple (not simple-minded), as she is supposed to be, but the writing too feels naive and simple, which left me impatient.
It’s possible later books are better written, but so far I have not the urge to find out.
