Bubba - mia in True Blood
True Blood (my blog) is something i have mentioned in this blog, and with two seasons of it i decided to go read the Suckie Stookhouse books .of which there are at least 11 in print or about to be released averaging about 300 pages each.
book 1: dead until dark, isbn: 9780575089365
Lafayette is less rounded, and Sookie is more daring and less conservative, the ‘v’ from tv is not there, it explains a few things.
2/5 bananas and also end of tv series one, tv did it better imho in its interpretation
book 2: living dead in dallas, isbn: 9780575089389
Lafayette is killed off early, and the most of season 2 is based on this book. Again tv seems to have turned this into a ensemble piece and made it better.
book 3: Club Dead
The end of season 2 (my blog) on tv and alcide is introduced so this is where season will probably start from. Fast paced and enjoyable as misunderstandings compound and compound again. Again no v
book 4: dead to the world, isbn 9780575089426
This book introduces the drainers and ‘v’ seen from season 1 on tv, bill takes another backseat and Eric without memories keeps thing fresh and with the added combination of another two boyfriends keeps a humorous tension going.
The brother finally develops skills too.
book 5: dead as a doornail, isbn:9789575091054
We get a drainer, much murder and mayhem in the shifter community and other stuff keeps thing busy and not getting boring – fun.
book 6: Definety Dead, isbn: 9780575091047
Usual mayhem and carnage, the Pelt story wraps up, and a war and new orleans means its a fun read
book 7: All together dead (2007), and the remainder have not been read since i cannot get them
Season 3 of True Blood starts up again in the summer, it should be interesting to see what stays and goes. I agree that Katie Sachoff (starbuck) can do better than the breif bits of Debbie Pelt, and it would appear that Lafayette is endowned with fairy powers which is a another large diversion from the books. No sign of Elvis either.
