Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in Louisiana. She has power; she can read minds. She meets a guy named Bill Compton who she can’t read, hence, takes a liking for him. Sookie is drawn into the midst of a mystery revolving around a strangler in Bon Temps and missing women.
What makes this book stand out?
Sookie is not a typical book heroine- a damsel falling in love. Her relationship with Bill is pretty normal, considering their otherworldly dispositions.
Read it for
Sookie is a bad-ass and strong protagonist. She is the best thing about Dead Until Dark.
Don't read it for
Character development in Harris’ novel is lacking. Almost every character other than Sookie and Bill feels non-existent and one-dimensional.
