Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, #11) by Charlaine Harris
First is the attempt on Sookie’s life. I can tell the deaf is going to hell book by book so I was curious to see how many books I have left until I totally give it up.
While Sookie understands Eric’s character, motivations and actions, she needs someone who will understand her remorse and horror, and comfort her, even if she knows she’s not being rational. Things are strained between her and Eric. Sookie should have stepped up and said something. It really struck me as odd that he didn’t have a least a bigger role in this book then he actually did.
I’ve softened towards Bill, though I can’t see the two of them ever reconciling –and we even have a surprise appearance from another potential suitor. Psh, we saw that like book 1. The last quarter of the book was fantastic and had me totally engrossed. OK maaayaybe a little doubt b’c Reckonig likes to play her audience Nevermind that Ded came to the bar both times she was in danger, ready to save her. Boook, in a very weird unchracteristic Sookie move, removes her clothing, runs starkers into Bill’s house and huddles up with him as two humans plan to kidnap her and bring her to Sandra Pelt.
I suffered with 3. Bill’s back to throwing hints at Sookie which he should not be doing since Sookie’s married already in vampire law with his sheriff no less! And Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum.
And Eric’s been hiding a big secret. Harris is no longer writing for a book medium, to me she is writing something that may look good on the screen and damn the consequences. Yes, Eric has his moments of Diva-ism and just completely not getting the need for communication and choice that humans have but his behavior in three quarters was just disgraceful. I read the whole series in less then 2 weeks when I discovered them and I seriously need this book asap!
By now, we’ve had plenty of bloody, fight-for-your-life battles. View all 9 comments. Stay tuned for the next edition of “What the hell is going on with these people”. She can’t sit on the sidelines when both her work and her love life are under threat – but as their plans gradually become clear Sookie finds the situation is deadlier than she could ever have imagined. She complains that Eric is excited by violence and death, but she forgave Bill for having exactly the same reaction after the Dallas incident, when the Church of the New Sun attached the vampires and Bill ran off in pursuit instead of making sure Sookie was OK.
Good for three books, perhaps even five or six if one draws it out, but eventually, I’d prefer evolution. Seems Sookie is content to live in her own world and complain “that Eric always makes decisions without her; like he’s always done because let’s face it, he’s a fucking vampire and Sookie is a telepathic part Fae human and doesn’t need to worry about half the stuff that goes on because she’ll get it into her fool head to do something about it and then Oh, I don’t know, DIE!
This couple has serious communication problems. Sookie did the laundry. It might as well have ended up with a big cliff hanger since there have been new mysteries introduced like Sookie’s real grandfather Fintan and a new threat to Sookie in life and in matters of the heart but both were left hanging.
For example, Eric’s new daytime man – a person who should, at the very least, refkoning trustworthy.
One of the things I love most about authors like Jim Butcher is that it’s obvious he has an overall plan for the series. Sookje world of the Southern Vampire Mysteries is rich and vibrant–and SO real–and Charlaine Harris has created an intricate web with almost infinite possibilites.
I enjoy it if a character has a religious outlook, because it makes them an interesting character. Next, why soo,ie him into this book for that un-necessary scene?
I didn’t find the predicament with view spoiler [Sandra Pelt hide spoiler ] intense or suspenseful. In short, I wouldn’t be surprised if in the end of the series Eric ended up dead, and Bill emerged as a Sookie’s true love.
I wish I could say it met my expectations and then blew me away. Open Ssookie See a Problem? View all 11 comments. Formula for Sookie books: I find myself left with a lot of answered questions from the previous book, but a hell of a lot more now.
It’s time for her to stop letting people walk all over her. Unfortunately, I spent much of this story feeling like this: But if you’re looking for something with depth, this is not a good option. By the time book 4 rolled around I thought I might combust over the tension. See bottom of rev Welll I don’t like the show, I don’t want to read a veiled script for the show.
Sookie has experienced more personal growth over the course of the series than any character in any other series I can think of. Dead Reckoning [May 20, ]. Reckonong, Bill’s character all of the sudden shows signs of sense of humour. LOL, I am at a lost for words about what went down. But Harris’ series just twists and turns as she comes up with more ways to keep the story going, there’s no overall direction.
