Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

Genre: Mystery / Vampire / Romance
Series: #4 in the Sookie Stackhouse series
Publication Date: 2004
Pages: 291
Challenges: Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge #4


This is the fourth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series and I’ve enjoyed every one so far and am looking forward to the next one.

With any series it’s difficult to discuss plot without giving spoilers to the earlier books so if you haven’t read the others yet, skip the next paragraph.

After the events at the club in Jackson, Sookie wants nothing to do with the drama of the vampires and other supernatural creatures she’s come to know. Her on and off vampire boyfriend Bill has left for a trip to Peru. Sookie has just finished a busy New Year’s Eve at work and has made an interesting New Year’s Resolution – to not get beat up due to things in which the vampires have managed to get her entangled. That plan ends up in jeopardy when a partly dressed and amnesiac Eric (Bill’s boss) ends up at Sookie’s house in hiding from a coven of witches and Sookie’s brother Jason goes missing. The mystery and adventure just take off from there.

This series is a lot of action with ongoing character development as it progresses. The culture of the Vampires and the other supernatural creatures gets more developed as well as complex with every book. There are some interesting new non-human characters in this one.

My two favorite parts were the amnesiac and very different Eric (is this more like what he may have been when he was alive?) and of course . . . Bubba!!

I loved this one! I can just about picture where in Jackson these places are! :P
That Bubba is a total hoot!

Hi there. Saw your link on Beth Fish's Sookie tab just before mine (I just finished Club Dead too: http://fingersinthepie.blogspot.com/2009/12/club-dead-dead-to-world-sookie.html).

It's great that u mentioned Bubba. He doesn't get enough credit like he should and he so deserves it!

This is my favorite Sookie book. I love seeing this confused and sweet, but still rather arrogant Eric.

Karen: Oh isn't it fun when books are set in familiar locations?

Lina: such a fun series, isn't it? I'm so glad this challenge came along to get me to actually read it rather than thinking about reading it.

Vickie: Me too. I loved the very different Eric. Gotta admit a soft spot for Alcide, though.
