Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

This is the first Sookie Stackhouse novel (True Blood).  In this book Sookie meets Bill the Vampire and a few of his evil vampire “friends,” and throughout the book the whole town is trying to figure out who keeps murdering women who have “relations” with vampires.  I wasn’t too thrilled with this book – I really thought I would like it more, but I just couldn’t get into it for some reason.  It could be as simple as the lame cover art.  I just didn’t feel the connection between Bill and Sookie (as in, my heart never sped up while reading about them “getting together”), and honestly, Sookie was a little too much of a goody two-shoes for me.  I won’t be reading the second book.  It wasn’t bad writing or anything, I just couldn’t relate with any of it – the characters, the setting, nothing.  And the fact that vampires are commonplace (as in, everyone knows they exist) in this book struck me as weird.  I understand that it’s fiction, but that element just was one more thing that annoyed me a little.  Maybe I would like the TV series better than the books – I’m definitely going to try that out, but I just won’t read any more books in this series.  (I hate to be so negative).
