Book Review: Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn’t just drive on by. Turns out the poor thing hasn’t a clue who he is, but Sookie does. It’s Eric the vampire–but now he’s a kinder, gentler Eric. And a scared Eric, because whoever took his memory now wants his life.

In preparation for Season 4 of True Blood and to take some of the waiting sucks edge off myself it was time to dust off my copy of Dead to the World, book 4 in the Southern Vampire series. This book is perhaps one of the funniest I have read in a while. It does deal with some serious subject matter and that stays serious, but the idea of watching Eric Northman act like a lost little boy? Oh it makes the whole thing ripe for a great deal of humor. I am the first to admit that the first few books were a bit of a slog for me; I enjoyed them but not as much as the show. I can honestly say this book I will enjoy as much if not more than the show this season. The book is well written and the story weaves together seamlessly this time. Perhaps it is the lack of the I love you I hate you with Bill? Hard to say, but it is the best book so far by far. Any book that says, “If there was an international butt completion Eric would win hands down – or cheeks up.” Gets my vote.
